WA rider Kevin Russell proved age is no barrier when he took to the track at the 2015 Australian Classic Motocross Championship in Busselton earlier this month.

The 76-year-old veteran has retired many times but opted to have another crack at clinching an Australian title, which he did, winning the pre-1978 super senior championship.

Russell raced a perfect round, coming first in all three motos to win clearly on 75 points ahead of Colin Metcher on 64 and Trevor Lobegeiger on 62.
