MX1 points leader, Hamilton-based Kayne Lamont, rides through a rut on his way to third overall for the weekend at the second round of the New Zealand Motocross Championships, near Rotorua.
For the second consecutive New Zealand Motocross Championships round, the trio of Altherm JCR Yamaha riders all scored overall podium places.

Racing on the Phillips' farm property, near Rotorua, they covered all positions, with Maximus Purvis claiming his second National 125cc class win, Australian Jay Wilson runner-up in the MX2 class and MX1 rider Kayne Lamont placing third.

Lamont, who is based in Hamilton, was dominant at the first round in Taranaki, scoring an impressive hat-trick of wins, which earned him a solid 15-point advantage over Mount Maunganui's defending national champion Cody Cooper.

He held onto this lead after today‰Ûªs three races, where he placed 3-2-2, trading the top positions with Cooper, visiting Australian Kirk Gibbs and Rhys Carter.

Lamont describes it as a ‰ÛÏpretty consistent‰Û

Wilson is beginning a long motocross season - beginning with Altherm JCR Yamaha in New Zealand. He will then continue racing through until the end of the year in the Australian Motocross Championships for Yamalube Yamaha Racing.

‰ÛÏI made some steps in the right direction that‰Ûªs for sure and performed better than round one. I‰Ûªm not exactly where I want to be yet but I‰Ûªll go back to Josh‰Ûªs place and get some more riding in and keep chipping away,‰Û
