CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team'a Dylan Long experienced a challenging weekend at the final round of the Pirelli MX Nationals to finish seventh on the day and concluding the championship in 5th.

At the final round at the challenging Coolum Pines circuit in Queensland Long was inside the top five in race one but a midrace fall and the time lost as he picked himself up cost him a few positions, eventually crossing the line in 8th.

Race two had Long in sixth place from start to finish and with no rider challenge or chase. It was a lonely old race for Long as he wound down his season.

Long rounded out the season well clear of sixth placed Brett Metcalfe in fifth and only 5 points adrift of fourth placed Caleb Ward.

‰ÛÏToday was a little disappointing,‰Û

Team owner, Craig Dack, sees the potential in the young Victorian.

‰ÛÏFor Dylan this season has been a bit of a mixed bag," Dack said. "He just needs to find the consistency in his racing across all ten rounds and all racing surfaces. I think the change of pace to Supercross will be good for him and there were some rounds in 2017 where he was a fast as anyone, especially the Adelaide round where he finished second."
