Metcalfe won the opening MX1 moto of the season and was in position to contest for overall honours before a late race fall left him to settle for second for the round.
Metcalfe was also happy with not just his result but with the performance of his bike as national-level motocross racing returned to Australia for the first time in over 18 months.

‰ÛÏI knew from practice to qualifying that our bikes were competitive,‰Û
Despite just missing the podium, Gibbs feels he could have done better on the weekend and the former champion will be looking for a better result come round 2
Kirk Gibbs's day did not go to plan, but he remains positive following his 3rd place finish in moto two.

‰ÛÏIt was an ok weekend, and we gathered a lot of data that will help us be better prepared for round 2. We bagged a bunch of points and sit 4th overall. We will be better prepared for round 2,‰Û
