It was picture postcard perfect weather for round three of the Western Australian State Motocross Championship at the AJS Motorcycle Club at Wanneroo today. The track was prepared perfectly, and it didn’t take long to live up to its brutal and unforgiving status when the first round of racing got underway following practice.
Dean Porter put in a faultless display to wrap up all three motos of the 2 Stroke Cup from Michael Mahon and Julian Cutajar.
The defending MX1 Champion was challenged all day by Jayden Rykers who took the top step of the MX1 podium from Porter second and Charlie Creech third.
Porter now holds a 56 point lead in the series from Michael Mahon and Chris Ruttico now sits in third in the standings.
The MX 2 Championship was shaken up with former Champion Jayden Rykers lining up to do battle, taking a clean sweep (1-1-1) from David Birch second and Daniel Pajewski finishing in third.
Defending champ Josh Adams’ day started off with a DNF before a pair of second place finishes would round off his day. Birch holds a 34 point lead in the series points tally from Josh Adams with Dylan Sexton holding third place.
With Luke Gaisford overseas for racing commitments, Chris Bosnakis was untouchable in the Quads, easily taking all three motos with Blake Croonen second and James Ognenis securing third for the day. Shaun Woodhead flipped his bike in the opening lap of the first moto, and mechanical issues hampered Michael Murphy’s start to the day. Luke Capacreco DNF-ed the last moto to take a dent in the points challenge. Bosnakis sits 52 points clear of Blake Croonen in second in the series standings and Shaun Woodhead holding third place in the championships.
Danny Mayes took out the MX 1 Repecharge from Ben Jones and Damien O’Brien, with Adam Barnett, Jack Barham and Brandon Campbell on the box for the MX2 Repecharge class. Kenny Smith took out the Vets from Rex Browne and Brett Graham in third.
