Mitch Norris Podium lifts Axis Motorsports spirits after a nasty start to the weekend.

Mitch Norris showed he is coming of age with a mature ride in the final moto of the day at round two of the Monster Energy MX Nationals at Coonabarabran.

After finishing the opening back to back Moto's in 5th and 2nd position respectively, Norris found himself in the hot seat, leading the final race of the day and being in a position to win his first ever race and take his first overall round Victory before a puncture tire ruined his chances.

Thinking smart, Norris backed down his pace and nursed his Axis Motorsports Kawasaki Maxima machine to the finish line in 3rd position, salvaging as many points as possible and placing him on the podium, the first for the newly revamped race team.

Though a little disappointed not to get the overall win, the South Australian is happy knowing he has the pace to run up front and will be look to stay on the podium for the remaining rounds and push for race wins.

"The track got super rough in the last moto." said Norris I felt really good in the last race, I could see Leary in front of me and I knew I was faster."

"I got a flat almost immediately after I passed him which I was bummed about, but I'm still happy knowing I'm at the pace to win races - which is what I intend for the remaining rounds". Concluded Norris.

Team owner Andrew Hopson was impressed with Norris's smart decision not to pit in the final moto when his tire went down and choosing to stay on track and tough it out to a third place moto finish.

"We were in the running for the overall day win with Norris, only to see it slip away with a flat tire. Watching Mitch to ride smart enough to salvage a 2nd overall was positive." Hopson stated.

The Axis Motorsports other rider Ben George had another tough round and was forced to sit out Sundays racing after a nasty concussion suffered in Saturdays practice. Ben was taken to Dubbo hospital as a precaution for some tests.

The good news for George is that there are no major concerns and he was released Sunday with the all clear by Doctors.

Team owner Andrew Hopson remains optimistic about the rest of the season. "It's been a weekend of emotions and contrasts. On Saturday we had Ben George taken to hospital with no phone service at the track and no updates of his condition." said Hopson

"We stayed focused after Ben’s incident and made up some valuable championship points for Mitch. I guess you could call it a bittersweet ending to a challenging weekend and we now look forward to being 100% ready for Rd 3 in Wonthaggi" he concluded.
