Australia wrapped up the week with 540 points to its credit, defeating New Zealand‰Ûªs tally of 246 - the advantage being in the Aussies‰Ûª favour with a larger pool of riders to choose from.

The Aussie squad consisted of 24 riders from across the country, which included Blake Fox, Noah Ferguson, Regan Duffy, Lochie Smith, Levi Rogers, Ricky Chalmers, Ryder Kingsforn, Jet Alsop, Jett Burgess Stevens, Alex Larwood, Tyran Tomich, Brad West, Tahlia O'Hare, Tanesha Harnett, Jasper Moon, Bailey Malkiewicz, Tyler Darby, John Bova, Matt Fabry, Liam Andrews, Kayden Minear, Mason Semmens, Rhys Budd and Jack Kukas.

In the Interstate Challenge, where a number of riders were selected in each division, it was another tight battle for the top spot as New South Wales wound up on 198 points, edging out defending champions Queensland, who closed out the week with 197 points to narrowly miss out on the number one spot.

Western Australia took a comfortable third on 171 points to round out the top three, followed by Victoria on 148, Tasmania with 145, South Australia on 128 and the Northern Territory with 30 points.
