CDR Yamaha riders get season back on track in Canberra
Canberra saw Luke Clout take maximum points and move to fourth place, just 12 points away from the championship lead.
Luke Clout and Hayden Mellross made the Canberra round of the Pro MX Championship one for the memory bank with the riders taking a 1-2 finish respectively on the day and thrusting themselves back into championship contention.

After the shock (suspension) issue at the opening round in Wonthaggi that saw Luke Clout unable to finish the final moto and in a points hole at the start of the series, Clout had his back against the wall and needed to come out fighting in Canberra.

And that‰Ûªs exactly what he did! He turned up ready to race and in a no non-sense mood and charged to a round victory with 1-1-2 results. The format for the day in the MX1 class was the traditional 30 minute moto in the morning, followed by back to back 12 minute races in the afternoon and it was Clout who was the clear winner on the day and injected plenty of life into the championship.

He had great starts in all three motos and was able to pick off riders as he moved to the front in each race. They were calculated and decisive moves that showed he meant business as he charged his way around the Fairburn Park circuit.

The round win saw him take the maximum points and move to fourth place, just 12 points away from the championship lead.

‰ÛÏI came into this round knowing it would be one of my stronger tracks and I had to make the most of it and claw back some points after the DNF in Wonthaggi,‰Û

Hayden Mellross finished with 4-3-3 results to charge home with second place for the round.
To cap off a brilliant day for the team, Hayden Mellross logged a fast and consistent day to charge home with second place for the round. Mellross finished with 4-3-3 results and as always, used his race savvy to construct two well thought-out motos.

Growing up in Goulburn, Mellross was a crowd favourite and his position on the track was easy to monitor as the local fans cheered in support.

He now moves to third place in the championship and despite two very different racing surfaces at the opening two rounds, he will be consistent and in the championship fight right to the end, regardless of what tracks are thrown at him.

‰ÛÏMan, it's been too long since I stood on a podium at a national event,‰Û
