Addison and Calvin set to continue the WA State Title battle at Noble Falls

Posted:

BSA Harley Davidson Motorcycle Club hosts the 5th round to the 2011 Smarter than Smoking WA State Motocross Championships at the infamous Noble Falls circuit at Gidgegannup this weekend Sunday Aug 28.

A huge line up of riders will take advantage of the end to winter and come out to race on one of WA's fastest Motocross tracks. The five week break between state rounds has seen riders travelling to National rounds across the country, and far and wide competing in Southern Cross, AJS's King of the Sand, and also a precursor to this round, The BSA Cup.

The main event for the day will be the Pro Open featuring the Series points leader Michael Addison, his return to WA along with Louis Calvin has upped the anti in all races they enter, Englishman Jamie Law has been right up there with them along with visiting Eastern State riders, but unfortunately Jamie has suffered an injury and wont be at BSA.

Australia's #1 four time winner Jay Marmont has been in WA racing along with Kade Mosig and Codie Mackie all revving up the WA guys to go harder and faster, racing in this round could be at a whole new level of intensity. Second in the points is WA's Paul Humberston, he is putting in some really consitent races this year and sits above Anthony Hicks by 15 points. As we head into the last two rounds on hard pack terrain, it will be interesting to watch the likes of Daniel Woodward, Jamie Shaw and others battle for top spots in each race.

The Pro Lite class leaders have also been putting in as many races as they can, also travelling to National rounds, points leader David Birch took out the Pro Lite class at King of the Cross, while Sean Robertson also tried his hand at Nationals. Ashley Whisler is doing the job this year bringing a new intensity to all his races, while Shaun Cornick makes a huge return after a stint in the nationals series and a lay off with injury. The Pro Lites class is full of talent to take the championship to the wire come round 6, after Noble Falls the calculators will be working overtime, don't miss a minute of round 5 as these youngsters put everything on the line to set themselves up for the finale at Byford in just 3 weeks time.

The Quad Championship Leaders along with their two wheel counterparts travelled to Coolum to compete in the last round of the Nationals as an invitational Pro ATV Cup, WA's Ryan Lancaster, Luke Gaisford and Jordan Dummett all finished in the top 4 placings, a good result 5 weeks out from the Australian Quad MX Championships which will be held at the same track.

Gaisford won the King of the Cross, Lancaster won King of the Sand, and the duel continues at BSA at round 5 where anything can happen. The 2010 Junior National Champ Josh McKay is holding third, doing amazing things in this class, in his first season as a senior, while Joel Mortimer and Brad Filbey and Patrick McNally get stronger and compete for better placings in every race.
