Honda's Ben Grabham has produced another dominant display to increase his lead in the motorbike section of Australian Safari, as competitors travelled between the West Australian towns of Fitzroy Crossing and Broome. Grabham, from Bathurst, won two of the three stages in today's 257km leg, extending his lead over Broken Hill's Adrian Channing to seven minutes and 17 seconds. The event's youngest competitor, Condobolin rider Jacob Smith, just 18, collected the final stage of the day by 12 seconds from Grabham, to move into third place overall, 8 minutes and 8 seconds behind the leader and just 51 seconds adrift of second-placed Channing.
