Aaron Tanti Kicks Off East Coast MX Series With Pro Open Win

Posted:

The East Coast MX Series presented by Transmoto Dirt Bike Magazine kicked off last weekend for the season opener at the Lake Macquarie Motorcycle Club.

It was a hectic weekend with 443 entries and some classes filled to capacity.

In the Pro Unlimited class it was a battle of age versus youth, the experience of Daniel McCoy against the up and coming young guns Aaron Tanti and Kale Makeham. Tanti was given the opportunity to ride under the Factory Husqvarna team of Craig Anderson Racing as a trial and rode consistently to the overall win with 1-2-2 finishes.

New MX1 rookie recruit on the Factory Suzuki Team Kale Makeham finished with 2nd and 3rd place finishes in the first couple races and did not contest the final race. McCoy (SRC Factory Racing) got stronger as the day progressed, managing a 4th in race 1, but went on to win the next 2 races convincingly missing out on the overall win by 1 point.

Another Rookie from WA Connor Tierney on his Craig Anderson Racing Factory Husqvarna rode to victory in the B GRADE CUP, 2-STROKE CUP but it was Joel Whiteman who gave everyone a riding lesson in the Pro Lites Class.

Meghan Rutledge cleaned up in the Senior Womans and also managed a 12th overall in the Pro Lites against the boys.

‰ÛÏIt was great to be blessed with good weather conditions and such a big turnout for Rnd1 of the series." Series promoter Michel Constantinou said. "The Lakes club were very supportive and have set the bar for the rest of the series.‰Û
