More mud at round 2 of Aussie Supercross

Round two of Monster Energy Super X was held last night at WIN Stadium, returning to Wollongong for the first time since 2008. Unfortunately, 15 minutes before the finals in all classes a huge thunderstorm hit Wollongong, causing a 45 minute delay in proceedings. As a result of the storm, the Under 19’s and Michelin Junior Development Series’ finals were cancelled, and the formats for the opens and lites final was changed to one times 15 lap final in each class.

It proved a masterstroke with two classic finals. Team Motul Pirelli Suzuki’s Daniel McCoy prevailed in the treacherous conditions, also taking the Championship lead in the process. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Billy MacKenzie took the holeshot and led for the first half dozen laps before going down in the slippery conditions. Once McCoy passed MacKenzie he was never headed, although he was pushed right to the end by JDR Motorex KTM’s Dan Reardon, who finished with an impressive 2nd place.

Hometown hero CDR Rockstar Yamaha’s Jay Marmont worked his way back through the pack after a disappointing start to finish in 3rd. JDR Motorex KTM’s Matt Moss took the holeshot in the lites and led from start to finish to make it two from two wins and take a commanding lead in the lites championship.
Team Motul Pirelli Suzuki’s Steven Clarke improved on his 6th placing in round 1 to finish 2nd and Moss’ teammate Brendan Harrison rounded out the top three. Unfortunately two title contenders failed to poll any points with Moss’ teammate, Josh Cachia crashing out in the heats and Monster Energy’s Kawasaki’s Dean Ferris going down on lap one of the final and heading straight back to the pits.
No points will be awarded for this round in both the U16’s and U19’s.

Round three of the Australasian Supercross Championship will take place at Campbelltown Stadium in next Saturday November 5. 
Dan McCoy
“To be honest I have never really enjoyed the mud. With such a short series you need to be near or on the podium every week.”

Dan Reardon
“I don’t consider myself a mud rider. I’ll definitely take these points.”

Jay Marmont
“I could hear the crowd screaming for me. I didn’t even know I finished third until I crossed the line. Please no rain next week.”

Race Director/General Manager Kevin Williams
“The crowd showed they wanted to see some racing, so we had to give it to them, and considering the conditions, they weren’t disappointed with two great finals.”

Matt Moss
“The track felt pretty grippy, so I decided to just pin it and win it.”
