TeamMoto x

The sun was beaming down on the paddocks at Kingston SE, South Australia for Round 8 of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship and it was Daniel Milner (E3), Daniel Sanders (E2), Luke Styke (E1) and Michael Driscoll (EJ) who took out class victories.

E3

Milner was once again simply in a class of his own, he stopped the clock at 58:44.297 after completing nine laps. After a nasty fall during the third test, Milner still had his composure and came away with yet another E3 victory.

It was another win, but Milner had to work for it; “It was a solid win today, it actually got quite difficult out there throughout the day. I had a good cartwheel on the third lap after going into the corner to hot, but after that I pushed to remain smooth and clean and finish well,” said Milner.

Finishing behind Milner was once again Lachlan Stanford who completed the nine laps with a time of 1:02:25.285. Stanford continued his consistent season that has only seen him miss the podium on one occasion this season.

Rounding out the podium in the E3 class was Broc Grabham on his Gas Gas, who makes a welcome return to the podium here at Kingston SE. His time of 1:03:29.791 left him ten seconds ahead of Andrew Wilksch on his Sherco in fourth.

Continuing his undefeated run in the E2 class was Victorian Daniel Sanders, it wasn’t all smooth sailing for Sanders out on the track, finishing the day with a few battle scars in a hard-earned victory.

His time of 59:00.645 was enough to keep Wil Ruprecht at a safe distance; “It was a pretty good run for me today, I had a bit of pressure on me in the class from Wil who kept me on my toes finishing in second for most of the tests today. It was good to have a consistent day and take the class win, we now look forward to tomorrow,” finished Sanders.

Milner was made to earn the win here today with the tough conditions; “My first run today I pushed too hard into the corner and tucked the front end and lost a bit of time there. There was a log section that had us all struggling and I was definitely struggling with it but once I sussed out a line I managed to overcome the logs. The track was awesome it was rough, technical, hard and something we haven’t seen in AORC in a long time, credit to AORC for not taking it out and letting us battle through,” finished Milner.

Backing up his second place in yesterday’s sprint it was once again Lachlan Stanford, who pushed through the conditions to record a 58:46.646.

Taking the final spot on the podium and showing great improvement from yesterday’s results was Thomas Mason. Mason made some slight adjustments today and they paid off for him, with a time of 1:00:05.087.

Sanders was happy to take the win but will look to improve at the final round; “The track was pretty rough today but I got off to a good start, but a few mistakes and crashes set me back from the times I was after today. All in all it was a good weekend for us and the team did really well to adapt to the conditions and help me achieve the win,” said Sanders.

After missing the podium yesterday, Joshua Green bounced back here today to grab second place on his Yamaha with a time of 55:54.471. Green is one of the smoother riders in AORC and today it showed as the track became rough and he still looked cool and calm out there.

Lyndon Snodgrass made it a pair of third place finishes at Kingston SE, ended the day with a time of 56:46.015. Snodgrass leaves Kinston SE in second place in the E2 championship race.

After a second-place finish on the Saturday, Higlett has turned the tables to record his second race win of the season in the E1 class. Higlett has been known to enjoy the dusty and rough conditions and today was no exception as he stopped the clock at 58:30.922.

Frenchman Jeremy Carpentier grabbed his best finish down under, claiming second position to cap off a solid rounds riding with his third place on Saturday. The best result also comes on his 25th birthday, not a bad birthday present for the Yamaha rider.

Jack Simpson missed the previous round at Broken Hill, but he bounced straight back upon his return this weekend to snare the last spot on the podium. Simpson recorded a 1:01:07.670 to show he has found the speed again on return.

Driscoll took the win, but it wasn’t the easiest weekend for his team; “It was definitely a technical track today and I was happy with how I rode and to take the class win again is great, big thanks to the team as it wasn’t the easiest weekend for us, as I had a few spills throughout but we got it sorted and took the win,” said Driscoll.

What a ride it was from Callum Norton, yesterday was his first go at AORC and today he has leaped into second position. Norton normally competes in the motocross format and was riding a Husqvarna in MX Nationals this season, but he jumped on a KTM and tried off-road and he adapted well, collecting a time of 57:51.715.

The podium was rounded out by Joshua Brierley to back up his second place yesterday, his time of 1:01:12.612.

Finally, New Zealand sensation Hamish MacDonald closed out the Top 5 in Youth just ahead of Gerard Gomez.

World Enduro Super Series – Round 6 – Hawkstone Park

Josep Garcia continued on his winning performance from Saturday’s qualifying Sprint Enduro to claim a start-to-finish victory at round six of the World Enduro Super Series held at the Hawkstone Park Cross-Country facility last weekend.

WESS Rnd Hawkstone Cross Country Competitors
World Enduro Super Series 2018 – Round 6 Hawkstone Park

It was a memorable race for British riders as fan favourites Nathan Watson (KTM) and Billy Bolt (Husqvarna) secured podium results at their home race with second and third respectively. In finishing third on the day Bolt becomes the new championship leader with two rounds remaining.

With scattered showers blowing through the iconic Hawkstone Park venue, the skies cleared for the start of Sunday’s two-and-a-half-hour Original Fast Eddy Cross-Country, much to the welcome relief of the 250 riders on the start line.

After Saturday’s electric qualification event, Garcia took pole position and was quick to turn that advantage into a holeshot as the riders blasted off the start line. With his nose in front, the Spaniard immediately set a blisteringly fast pace to distance himself from the chasing pack. Lap after lap the KTM rider edged further and further ahead from his closest challengers Watson and Bolt to charge his way to an eventual one-minute and 34-second margin of victory.

Josep Garcia (KTM – ESP)

I am really happy to win my first race in WESS. I felt really good in the race – I set off first and stayed in front the whole time. My team were great, they let me know how much of an advantage I had and so I was able to gauge the gap back to Nathan. I did have a couple of crashes but thankfully it was nothing too serious and I didn’t lose too much time. I’ve really enjoyed myself here at Hawkstone Park. It’s been an awesome weekend and to win both days is perfect. It’s given me added motivation for hopefully another good result at the next round.”

WESS Rnd Hawkstone Cross Country Josep Garcia
Josep Garcia – World Enduro Super Series 2018 – Round 6 Hawkstone Park

However, behind Garcia the battle raged on between Watson, Bolt and early contenders Taddy Blazusiak and Jaume Betriu with British wildcard Alex Snow and Manuel Lettenbichler close behind.

During the first hour both Watson and Bolt swapped positions as they broke clear of Blazusiak and Betriu. With a perfect pitstop, Watson jumped into second and it was a position he would control until the chequered flag. Despite keeping Watson honest throughout, Bolt had to settle for the final step of the podium, but in doing so also moved to the top of the championship standings.

The World Enduro Super Series continues with round seven at Sweden’s Gotland Grand National on October 26/27.


AMA Endurocross – Round 3 – Reno, Nevada

Cody Webb rebounded from a disappointing round two to win the Reno EnduroCross ahead of championship rival Colton Haaker who will keep the championship points lead by a single point. Ty Tremaine rounded out the podium on the Alta Redshift electric bike to earn the first-ever AMA professional podium for an electric powered motorcycle.

Haaker dominated the first of the two pro class heat races but forgot to take the No Joke Lane and, therefore, had to go to the Last Chance Qualifier instead of the main event. GasGas backed Noah Kepple moved up to take the heat one win, the first of his career. Redmond, Ty Cullins, Cristobal Guerrero, Abbott and Ryan Wells finished second to sixth respectively to earn main event spots.

In the second pro heat race, Webb took the win over Tremaine. Dustin McCarthy, Geoff Aaron, Giacomo Redondi and Mason Ottersberg finished third through sixth respectively to earn slots in the main event.

The top four riders from each of the above heat races faced off in head-to-head bracket races. The winner earns a bonus point and first gate pick for the main event. With the points leader Haaker not in the brackets, it was Webb’s opportunity to gain a point. But Tremaine, who is from nearby Gardnerville, Nevada managed to beat Webb when they faced off in the final.

Cody Webb

“Reno was much better than last weekend. With the injury earlier in the year, I was behind and trying to rely on talent and that wasn’t enough. So I spent all week with Trystan Hart, Cooper Abbott, and Cody Miller riding motos to get my intensity back and that helped. I hope Trystan is okay since he was riding so  good, so it is a bummer to see him hurt his wrist or arm.”

Colton Haaker

“The mistake I made in the heat race (missing the No Joke Lane), it was easy tonight and I was so focused on the track that I just forgot to hit it. In the main, I got an okay start and got to second pretty quick and tried to close on Cody. He was so good in the Matrix and jumping into the rocks that he was putting a couple of seconds on me there. I think I was making up time on the rest of the track but not enough.”

Ty Tremaine

“I didn’t get the best start so I took the No Joke Lane right away, and then from there, I just started picking guys off one by one. I got into third and then rode my own race. We made history tonight with the Alta, which is crazy. And I did it with all of my family and hometown crowd here, which was so great.”

Woffinden ended his night on a total of 16 points, extending his advantage at the top of the standings to 10 after Zmarzlik scored 15. This means 12 points at the Torun SGP of Poland on October 6 will guarantee Woffy his third world title irrespective of what Zmarzlik scores in his homeland.

Indianerna and Wroclaw rider Woffinden was delighted to bounce back after scoring five at the AZTORIN Slovenian SGP in Krsko on September 8.

Tai Woffinden

“I think I’ve had three or four GPs, where I wouldn’t say I have been struggling a little bit, but I was just not on my day. But it’s the business end of the season now and I mean business. I’ve proved that and I’m ready to go to Torun in two weeks and lift that trophy.  Tonight was about making sure I didn’t lose a lead or I could extend it. I extended it by one point, so it’s job done. I can go home, relax and focus on two weeks’ time.”

Second-placed Doyle. He has now racked up 33 in just two rounds as he moves closer and closer to guaranteeing his place in SGP 2019. But the Newcastle-born racer knows there’s plenty of work to do on one of the world’s great race tracks in Torun.

Doyle, who has never finished below fifth in the World Championship, surged up to sixth in the standings after storming to 16 points.

Jason Doyle

“Hopefully I can get in that top eight. That’s the main goal now and the last one in Torun is going to be very difficult. There are some fast riders who can go there and score big points. I know the job is not over yet. It’s very hard this year. If you don’t make a semi, you feel pretty disappointed. It’s such a fine line between making a semi and getting straight into the final. But it’s exciting. I thought I was going to have to beg for a place for next year! So it’s nice to be in the top six.”

Third-placed Zmarzlik was content with his night’s work.

Bartosz Zmarzlik

“Today was not so bad. I am happy because I scored 15 points and it wasn’t such a bad result. All the time I remember last year here – I only scored two points. This was a little bit better and I am happy because I stayed in the top two.”

The Central Coast Junior Motorcycle Club Inc played host to the New South Wales Junior Dirt Track Championships, proudly supported by Worthington Motorcycles Honda, on September 15-16. The action-packed racing over two days has seen 13 new NSW junior state champions crowned.

Best Presented Michael WEst
Best Presented Michael West

After some inspirational words from seven-time Paralympian and local MP, Liesl Tesch,  the 99 scheduled races got underway at Allen Park, Somersby, on the NSW central coast. Across the age groups, seven wins went to Ryan Smith (3), Cameron Dunker (2), Noah Cardinale and Rory Hutchinson from the Kurri Kurri club, and another three wins to brothers Tom (2) and Sam Drane from Forbes.

Other winners who travelled to the event included Queenslander Riley Nauta, Victorian Archie McDonald and Jayden Holder from Kempsey, NSW. Local racers Lachlan Russell and Lochlen Trappel were twice placed, with Russell also winning the support class, while Jacob Roulstone and Lincoln Knight took home place-getter medallions.

In all, it was a weekend of great racing, with officials praising the many riders who showed vastly improved form – which augers well for their future racing.

Dave Cooke, CEO of Motorcycling NSW

“Every state title event in NSW is the result of a lot of hard work from key groups of people. I’d like to congratulate the Central Coast Junior Motorcycle Club for not only hosting the event, but doing everything in their power to prepare the venue for two days of hard racing that, from all accounts, ran smoothly and to schedule. Thank you to all those that competed, and, of course, special congratulations to our nine new state champions across 13 classes!”

Australia Struggles at Trial des Nations

It was a tough weekend for Team Australia at the Trial des Nations in the Czech Republic. The Australian Men’s Team finishing in 6th place for the International Trophy and the Women’s Team finishing in 8th place. The competition was fierce and conditions were tough throughout the weekend. Despite this, the Aussies showed plenty of grit and determination.

Spain stormed to a fantastic fifteenth consecutive FIM Trial des Nations victory at a wet, wild and spectacular Sokolov venue in the Czech Republic with their three-man team of Toni Bou – Repsol Honda and Gas Gas team-mates Jeroni Fajardo and Jaime Busto reigning supreme in the Men’s World Championship category.

It was a much closer-fought affair in the Women’s TDN class where, competing alongside the men for the first time in the competition’s rich and illustrious history, Great Britain’s Emma Bristow – Sherco, Donna Fox – Montesa and Jess Brown – Scorpa regained the title they lost last year to Spain.

With the best two scores through each section counting towards a country’s result, riders from twenty-three nations faced a mixture of man-made hazards featuring huge boulders and more natural terrain in nearby woods where grip was at a minimum. Day-long torrential rain and plunging temperatures added to the drama and forced organisers to modify the sections as the event became a war of attrition.

The Australians noted that the rain and steep hills were far from ideal for them. The effort they put in was unrelenting and showed true Aussie spirit, but the results were not what they were after.

The TDN brought a close to the 2018 TrialGP season, and marked the second and yet another successful season with Sport7 at the helm. For a full list of results head to http://trialgp.com/index.php/results/results-standings

Motorcycling Australia thanked Team Australia Competitors Kyle Middleton, Connor Hogan, Chris Bayles, Kristie McKinnon, Michelle Coleman and Jenna Lupo for their efforts representing Australia on the world stage. MA would also like to thank Team Manager Phil Whittle and minders, Daniel Felton, Jacob Whittle, Hayden Ahrens and Sam Hull.


Ferris OUT of Australian SX

Three-time Australian Motocross Champion Dean Ferris will miss the remainder of the 2018 Australian Supercross Championship, the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy team announced today.

Dean Ferris

Ferris sustained a concussion and severe bruising to his right lung in a crash at the opening round of the championship last weekend. According to the team, Ferris was in the ICU for a night before being transferred to the general ward the following morning. He was released from the hospital on Tuesday afternoon and is expected to make a full recovery.

Dean Ferris

“I don’t recall anything of the crash, but my doctors are confident they have everything under control and I will make a full recovery. There were some concerns around my lung, but they are happy with the progress, and now it’s just a matter of rest and relaxation to ensure everything stays on track. It’s hard to put a time frame on it, but due to the lung issue, my doctor has told me to lay low for four to six weeks and no physical exercise, and then they can assess me from there and we can begin the process of building strength and condition back. With the tight schedule of this years’ supercross championship, I will be out for the remainder of the series, but already looking forward to getting back on the bike and continuing my goal of racing in the US in 2019.”

Dean Ferris

Ferris announced in August that he will race the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in the U.S. in 2019. At this time, Ferris has yet to announce a deal for next year. In 2014, Ferris signed with Red Bull KTM and finished 14th overall in the 250SX West Region Championship, but his season was cut short due to injury and he eventually returned to Europe and the FIM Motocross World Championship. He raced the High Point National in 2017 and finished second in the first 450 moto.

The CDR Yamaha Monster Energy team will continue with Dylan Long. A replacement rider for Ferris has yet to be determined at this point.

Craig Dack – CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team Manager

“At this point, no decision has been made either way, and we are just coming to terms with what happened on the weekend. Dean has had an amazing three-year run with us so his injury has been a bit of a shock, and at the moment we are doing what we can to assist. Our short-term focus is to get Dylan up the front, give Dean what he needs for his recovery, and then assess what our next move is from there. On behalf of everyone at CDR, we wish Dean a quick and full recovery and look forward to seeing him back at the track as soon as possible.”

We are less than two weeks away from the annual Motocross des Nations which will be held in the United States at the Red Bud track in Michigan on October 7 and below is a list of the teams that have currently announced their riders.

Mouths are watering at the prospect of Jeffrey Herlings going toe to toe with Eli Tomac or how Aaron Plessinger goes against the regular World MX2 stars including Jorge Prado and Pauls Jonass while us Aussies are waiting to see if we can somehow break into the top five.

One point of interest is the fact that Romain Febvre has been replaced by Jordi Tixier instead of Marvin Musquin leaving little doubt that Marvin is on the nose with the French governing body.

Seely Extends HRC Contract

American Honda have announced that Cole Seely has signed a contract extension to remain with Team Honda HRC through the 2019 season, campaigning the AMA Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross Championships.

HRC Contract Extended Cole Seely
Cole Seely

This will mark Seely’s fifth season aboard a factory-prepared CRF450R; the Californian has spent his entire premier-class career (and the majority of his 250-class career) with the Honda brand.

Erik Kehoe – Team Honda HRC Team Manager

“I’m looking forward to having Cole back with us for 2019. He had a tough year with his injuries, but as his recovery progressed, he became more eager and excited to get back to racing, which was great to see. We’re confident in his ability to make his comeback and return to the podium. He’s very talented and a huge asset to our team, so we’re happy to continue our relationship.”

Cole Seely

“I’m really excited to be re-signing with American Honda, I have an awesome crew around me and we get along great, so I’m eager to get back to work with them. This past year was really rough, so to have a company like Honda continue to back me is amazing. It’s one thing to have brand loyalty as a rider, but to have rider loyalty as a brand is saying something huge. This will be my 10th season on a Honda! I’m excited for 2019 but am trying to take things slow and easy right now so I can build myself up and not rush the process. We have started to do some testing though so it’s been fun getting back into the mix.”

HRC Contract Extended Cole Seely

Following the 2018 Motocross of Nations, Team Honda HRC’s crew and riders will focus solely on preparing for the 2019 season and will not be participating in the Monster Energy Cup.


2019 AMA Supercross Schedule Announced

The 2019 Supercross series schedule has been announced and the big changes stem around the fact that the world’s best supercross riders will go to Nashville for the first time in the sport’s 45-year history and from Nashville, it will go to Denver’s Broncos Stadium for the first time since 1996.

The returning destinations include Detroit and East Rutherford which were both last on the schedule in 2017 and there will be three Triple Crown events and two East-West Showdowns—although the cities have not be announced. Anaheim gets it’s traditional two rounds on January 5 and January 19.

The good news for the weekend warrior is that there will be eight Sunday National Amateur Supercross races, called Supercross Futures, with round two in Arizona kicking off the amateur festivities. Amateurs will earn Road to Supercross points toward their professional AMA Supercross license. The Amateur Championship finale will be held at the Monster Cup on October 19 in Las Vegas.

Musquin and Anderson Headline Paris SX

With Marvin Musquin, the winner last year, and Jason Anderson, the US Supercross champion, the annual Paris Supercross will have a real taste of American Supercross!

AMA MX Musquin Tomac Multiple MX JK SpringCreek
Marvin Musquin

Having returned to the French capital last year after three editions in Lille, the Paris Supercross looks more exciting than ever with the comeback of many top Supercross riders in one of the most modern arenas in Europe.

Xavier Audouard – Paris SX Sport Director

“For sure we’ll have the best line-up of the last twenty years, Having Marvin and Jason, who battled for the US title, and also Dylan Ferrandis, Zach Osborne, Jayson Brayton, Tyler Bowers and Vince Friese alongside the best French SX riders confirms that Paris remains one of the best events outside the USA.”

The race format is similar to last year with two sprint races (4 minutes + 1 lap, 6 minutes + 1 lap) and one main event (9 minutes + 1 lap) for the SX2, and for the SX1 the Superpole, two sprint races (4 minutes + 1 lap, 8 minutes + 1 lap) and one main event (15 minutes + 1 lap).

Of course the show will also feature FMX with six top riders involved in three contests (Best Whip, All Tricks, Best Tricks). Coming from Australia Josh Sheehan and Jarryd McNeill will challenge Japanese Genki Watanabe and Frenchies David Rinaldi, Brice Izzo and Nicolas Texier, and will find in the U Arena enough space to deliver a great show.

AMAMX RNd Ironman Jason Anderson

Designed by Jean Luc Fouchet and Cedric Lucas, the track will remain one of the biggest in Europe and will be more selective.

Cedric Lucas

“After the start the riders will cross the Arena for 100 meters and a double left turn will offer several lines to get the holeshot; then the track will go in the opposite side compared to last year, and we’ll have more left turns so it will be easier for the riders to play with the rear brake.”

The track will of course be one of the key features to a successful event, as well as the show and the line up. Regarding the show everyone now knows how to use all the facilities of this new stadium, including the lights and the giant screen, to offer an even better show. For the fans who will attend the event, there’s a huge novelty as all tickets will give access to the practice sessions (doors will open at 3 pm on Saturday and 11.30 am on Sunday).

Motorcycling Australia confirmed that the 2019 KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championship (AJMX) will be hosted by the Motocross Riders Association at the Gillman Motocross Track in Gillman, South Australia (SA).

KTM AJMX to Gillman
Gillman to host 2019 AJMX

With multiple State Championships under their belt over the past 10 years, the Motocross Riders Association will no doubt deliver an event to remember. The dates have also been locked in, taking place September 28 – October 5, 2019.

Mark Walmsley – Event Promoter

“I’m ecstatic to bring AJMX back to SA again, we’re going to make it huge and make it the best one in Australia from the last five years. Although it’s getting to a warmer time of year, we can handle it. We’ve got enough water and machinery to deal with the weather. We ran a state title a few weeks ago and did a lot of radio advertising and got great spectator numbers. I think the numbers will be huge for a national title like AJMX. If we can get kids there, maybe we can get more people on the track, especially because the Juniors are the future of the sport.”

The AJMX is the apex of Junior Motocross racing in Australia and MA is excited to collaborate with the Motocross Riders Association to showcase our homegrown junior talent in this national title!

This is the fifth successive year this event has been allocated to Gillman and Speedway Manager David Parker couldn’t be happier.

David Parker

“To get the event five years running, and last season and this as a standalone venue, is something all our officials, staff and volunteers can be very proud of.”

FIM Oceania President Glen Williams

“FIM Oceania is thrilled to be associated with the FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship at Gillman Speedway, in South Australia. We are looking forward to yet again seeing some of the world’s best Speedway Sidecar riders battling it out for an evening of spectacular racing. FIM Oceania has the important role of helping to create and develop the sport of motorcycling within our region. Our continued support of this high-quality event reflects the valued exposure that Gillman Speedway brings to our sport within Oceania. I am sure that the FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship will again be action packed and hotly contested. It will be a weekend of handle bar to handle bar racing with riders from Australia, New Zealand joining International stars. Gillman Speedway allows spectators to see, smell, hear and feel all of the high octane race action up-close and it will be racing not to be missed”

The FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship will be held at Saturday night, 30 March 2019. Details of the riders taking part will be announced when each country makes its selections, but David Parker said he was pleased to say the current champion Darrin Treloar will be defending his FIM Oceania championship.
