“I am really passionate about coaching and mentoring riders and playing a part in their development. This sport has been a part of my life and given me so much and I enjoy giving back to this incredible sport.”
Glenn Macdonald - Coaching, mentoring & racing teams
In 2002 Glenn was one of the founding members of the Yamaha Junior Development Team in Victoria, a formula which was later replicated interstate. Glenn’s role was as team coach and later as team manager and coach.
In 2007 Glenn Macdonald made a change and started a dealership supported KTM team which achieved an Australian Junior Motocross Championship in the 15 year old 250F class, runner-up in both the 15 years 125cc and 12-13 years 85cc and a third in the 9-u12 years 85cc as well as other major State results.
Glenn Macdonald was then appointed the Team Manager of the Motorex KTM factory Junior and Senior Women's Racing Team - GMR Motorex KTM.
In 2008, the Motorex KTM Junior and Senior Women’s Teams and GMR-KTM became one formidable force with the establishment of Glenn Macdonald Racing Motorex KTM Junior and Senior Women’s Factory Race Team. With 8 number one plates achieved in 08, we thought we couldn’t be any more stoked!
In 2009, GMR Motorex KTM cemented its presence not only nationally, but also on a World stage, winning the FIM 85cc World Junior Motocross Championship (Jay Wilson) and placing third (Dylan Long). Seasons 2010, 2011 and 2012 were incredible years on a State, National and International stage with another 23 number one plates.
We are extremely proud to have been the race team manager for both Jay Wilson and Dylan Long on board their GMR Motorex KTM race bikes and MACA sponsor and coach to both riders throughout 2009 and 2010. Placing 1st and 3rd in the 85cc FIM World Junior Motocross Championships in New Zealand was the culmination of a lot of hard work by each rider, their families, GMR Motorex KTM Racing Team, their sponsors and long term supporter MACA Coaching.
For further information about the team and our results visit the official GMR Motorex KTM Racing Team website where you can also sign up for the team’s e-Newsletter.
“Each and every rider that comes to my schools receive equal treatment whether they compete against my team riders or not. Every rider reacts and learns differently and I will commit to each rider’s desire to learn. My passion is to ensure that each rider leaves my schools happy and know that they can come and chat with me at the race track with any questions they have – I will put in as much effort to their learning as they ask and need.”
MACA - Building the knowledge
