Chad Reed claims the inaugural FIM Oceania Championship in Auckland
Australian Chad Reed has won the inaugural Monster Energy S-X Open International Supercross FIM Oceania Championship in front of a huge crowd at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday night.

Reed left the entire field in his wake to win all three feature races at the Monster Energy S-X Open Auckland, to make a remarkable run to victory on the night, and of the overall Oceania championship.

‰ÛÏOh man, I‰Ûªm so stoked to become the first ever FIM Oceania Supercross Champion!‰Û

Kiwi ace Ben Townley put in a sweet show for his home crowd, going bar-to-bar with rival Ronnie Mac to win the Boost Mobile International Showdown.

The pair traded blows on the track before literally trading blows off it to cap off a huge win for the ANZACs over the Internationals.

‰ÛÏThe showdown went to plan, Ronnie jumped the gun as I expected so I had to trail him all the way to the last corner, and was able to sneak up the inside and just pile drive him into the dirt and yeah that was it, he was on the floor and I was able to get the victory for the ANZACs,‰Û
Kiwi and former World Champion Townley was a huge hit with the Auckland crowd
In the SX2 class, it was American ace Dakota Alix who took the spoils form Aussie Ryan Marmont with local kiwi Josiah Natzke claiming the final podium spot.

With no Supercross series in New Zealand, it was a huge challenge for Natzke on the world-class track but the youngster was up to the challenge to finish as the fastest Kiwi for the event.

‰ÛÏUs Kiwi‰Ûªs don‰Ûªt have Supercross so this event means a lot really,‰Û
