In the SX2 category, a surprise of sorts has emerged with another Serco Yamaha sporting the red plate, this time in the form of the #18 New South Welshman; Aaron Tanti. The 22-year-old has so far notched a 3-2 scorecard to amass 42 points, which sees him sit a slender two points clear of American Josh Osby.
Interestingly, the SX2 top ten is split, with Australian‰Ûªs occupying five of the top ten positions, whereas the American imports claim the other five. With three rounds remaining, the fight between the home and away teams will no doubt gather momentum, with each country battling for supremacy come seasons end.
‰ÛÏHaving the red plate in supercross is awesome, however, it matters the most when it comes to the final round. We‰Ûªll keep the cohesion within the team, keep our heads down and post good results, then the aim will be to claim that number one spot in Melbourne,‰Û
