Although finishing the fifth round of the MX Nationals with a shoulder injury, Gibbs is expected to be fit and firing for the Manjimup 15,000 and is looking forward to getting back on a track he enjoys racing.

‰ÛÏI have done Manjimup a few times over the years and it is an event that every motocross racer should do,‰Û

For Luke Clout, 2019 will mark his first appearance at the event and the has the current MX Nationals points leader exciting about the prospect of racing on the famous Manjimup circuit and experience the race for the first time.

Clout has been in red-hot form since swapping over to the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team and has been on the podium at four of the five rounds contested at the MX Nationals this season. Manjimup presents opportunity for Clout to engrave his name on the event leader board and continue his upswing in Australian motocross.

‰ÛÏI have heard so many good things about Manjimup and it‰Ûªs awesome to know I will finally be taking the trip over to contest the event. Dacka has told me so many stories about his time racing Manjimup and I hope my time there is half as exciting as his. And I‰Ûªm not sure if I can bare another story about riding a 500cc two stroke on a track rough enough to swallow an ocean-liner,‰Û
