American Dakota Alix Confirmed for the Australian Supercross Series

Posted:

Dakota Alix has been confirmed to race the entire 2018 Australian Supercross Championship which set to take-off on Saturday, 15 September, at Jimboomba X Stadium in Queensland.

Alix finished 15th in the 2018 AMA Supercross 250SX West standings despite missing multiple rounds through injuries, picking up a season-best result of seventh at Salt Lake City's penultimate round.

Landing in Australia only recently, the 22 year old will contest the SX2 class, while Luke Clout will race the SX1 class aboard his 450.

"It's really exciting to be here in Australia with the KTM Motocross Racing Team." Alix said. "As soon as Jay contacted me about travelling over, I couldn't pass it up and am happy to be here for the series.

"Our last round of Pro Motocross was just a couple of weeks back, so as soon as that ended I flew over and am getting adjusted to being here in Australia. The opportunity to ride with KTM Australia's factory team is a really good one and the new 2019 model KTM 250 SX-F is awesome.

"I gelled with the bike super-quickly and felt comfortable straight away, so we're all working really hard together right now and it should be a good season."

Clout, fresh from finishing third in the MX Nationals MX1 championship, will spearhead the team's SX1 assault.

At 23, Clout is recognised as one of Australia's top emerging supercross talents and is eager to make his mark against an assortment of world-class internationals due to contest the five-round championship.

"I'm definitely excited for supercross, have been riding now for a few weeks and I honestly felt comfortable on the 2019 KTM 450 SX-F straight away." Clout said. "The team gave me a good package that feels really positive, so even though my speed was strong last year, I feel like I'll be a lot better this season and will be looking for some top results.

"Straight after Coolum we began with the new bike and it's really good for supercross - lighter, thinner and it turns so good. The more time that I spend on it, the better I have been getting, so it's been a good transition and I'm hoping to show everybody what it's capable of.

"This year I want to be on the podium week in, week out, battling at the front of the field. There are a lot of good guys from both Australia and America in the field, so I just want to be up there and fighting for positions while being as consistent as possible." Clout concluded
