If you want to catch all the action live from Appin NSW, the ProMX website has the live coverage until lunchtime, before both SBS on Demand and STAN SPORT take over the telecast, with the final few moto’s being streamed back over on the ProMX website.

THOR MX1

After taking the holeshot in moto 1 Top Ten winner Dean Ferris put on a clinic as he raced off to ride on another level out front, eventually taking a massive 33 second win. Kirk Gibbs finished second after some small tussles in the opening laps, his second place more impressive on a account he rode most of the race with no goggles and his radiator shroud hanging off. Defending champion Aaron Tanti worked his way up from a midpack start for third as did Jed Beaton who came from midpack to fourth. Todd Waters and Brett Metcalfe were fifth and sixth respectively while an impressive Matt Moss, who ran second early on finished seventh. Moss’s result all the more impressive considering he has had little motocross preparation after focusing on Supercross in recent months. Hamish Harwood was eight with Luke Clout, who crashed in the first turn made his way back to ninth. The biggest loser for the moto was Kyle Webster who also crashed at the start and could only get back to eighteenth.

“I put in some heaters for the first few Laps and didn’t look at my board but when I did look at it I had an 8 second lead,” Ferris said. “I calmed it down a little bit and I still seemed to pull out a second a lap and somewhere near the end i pulled out 4 seconds, so yes I was just ticking off my laps and staying comfortable. It was great that i had some extra speed so with lappers I was able to just take a differnet line and get by.”

In the first of the two 15-minute back-to-back motos race one winner Dean Ferris took the holeshot ahead of Aaron Tanti, Luke Clout, and Jed Beaton while race one runner-up Kirk Gibbs languished in fourteenth. Disaster struck though on lap two as Ferris took a heavy crash and remounted back in thirteenth. Tanti, Clout, Beaton, and Webster rode steady out front as the dust started to rise along with the 37 degree temperature. Ferris was on a charge and all eyes were on him as he tried to make up ground. At the chequered flag, the top four remained unchanged while Ferris just got past Hamish Harwood to salvage fifth.

Part two of the MX1 back-to back saw Dean Ferris make it three holeshots from three attempts while stage one winner Arron Tanti was in close attendance. Jed Beaton, Todd Waters, and Luke Clout all ran in that order while Kyle Webster got off to a bad start in tenth. With Ferris out leading early Tanti was good for the overall remaining behind Beaton to take the round overall. The last five minutes saw riders maintain station. So in the end it was a four second win to Ferris ahead of Beaton and Tanti.

Dean Ferris and Aaron Tanti tied on 45 points for the overall with Tanti getting the win on account of his better final moto result (Both back-to-back results combined) Jed Beaton took third place overall. With no result from the abndonded popening round the overall for this round is the series standings.

PIRELLI MX2

MX2 Moto one saw Nathan Crawford take the holeshot with Wilson Todd and Brodie Connelly hot on his tail. It didn’t take long for Crawaford to stretch his legs and was out to a 10 second lead by half moto and was never challenged. Todd road a lonely race in second, where he logged the fastest lap, while Connelly dropped off to finish 47 seconds behind Todd in third. Alex Larwood looked good early but crashed out and recorded a DNF. Jayce Cosford finished fourth while Kayden Minear rounded out the top five

“There is plenty of would like to say, but I think that ride win or lose the next moto said enough,” Crawford said referring to his controversial disqualification from round 1, which it appears still not a lot of people completely know what it is about!

Ryhs Budd took the holeshot in Moto Two ahead of Wilson Todd and Alex Larwood, while race one winner Nathan Crawford was blasting his way forward from a midpack start. Todd soon found the lead while Crawford worked his way up to Budd in second at the same time. With superior corner speed, Crawford was then on the back of Todd as the two favorites had sixteen minutes to sort out a winner. Budd and Larwood still held third and fourth respectively with Kaleb Barham a distant eight seconds back in fifth. Crawford was soon in front and from there didn’t settle, putting pressure on himself to extend his lead every lap. Todd, who was riding a little sore from round one injuries elected to settle in and maintain his second place. The last ten minutes were more processional as the top four held the same positions until the chequered flag.

Nathan Crawford took the overall with a pair of wins while Todd was second with a pair of seconds for the round, Broadie Connolly rounded out the round podium with a third and fifth.

“I had a point to prove,” Crawford said. “An interesting couple of weeks. I feel like I did a lot of speaking today without having to use any words, so it was an unreal day. We are only getting started so thanks to everybody in my corner,” he concluded.

For Wilson Todd, it just wasn’t his day. “I didn’t have anything for the win today,” the defending champion said. “we will just go back and hopefully gain some strength over the ent couple of weeks,” he said.

MAXXIS MX3

Ky Woods took the holeshots as the opening MX3 moto got underway. Jack Mather, Byron Dennis, and Cambell Williams were in close attendance. Woods soon settled into an early rhythm and started to eke out a handy lead. Mather and Dennis battled in the early stages over second place with Dennis assuming the spot early in the race. Kobe Drew moved up as Williams made small mistakes and dropped back through the field to take up the battle for second with Dennis. In the end, it was a small win for Woods with a 3-second margin, he had stretched his lead to 12 seconds but a small crash saw the gap evaporate. Dennis finished a close second while Mather got the upper hand on Drew in the final minutes to claim third after battling Dennis to the line.

Conner Towill took the holeshot ahead of Kayd Kingsford and race one winner Ky Woods. While Towill got out to a small lead Jack Mather moved into second. Mather riding with an injured knee was trying to ride as smoothly as possible trying not to aggravate the injury and also hold off Ky Woods. With the temperatures topping 37 degrees riders were soon starting to struggle with the conditions. Mid-race Liam Owens and Jet Alsop rounded out the top 5. Alsop had previously DNF’d the opening race. With 5 minutes left on the clock, Towill and Woods had a hold on first and second while Liam Ownes and jet Alsop had moved past Jack Mather to take over third and fourth. But with three minutes to remaining it was still anyone’s race. As the last lap board came out it was still a four way battle with only a second and a half between the top four. At the flag, it was Towill that held off Owens by a bike length and another length back to Ky Woods. Jet Aslop rounded out the top 4 with Byron Dennis 5th. An injured Jack Mather held on for 6th.

In the overall round result, Ky Woods took the win ahead of Liam Owens and Byron Dennis.
