Husqvarna’s Connor Tierney Celebrates With Maiden Round Win At Murray Bridge
Husqvarna mounted Connor Tierney (Craig Anderson Racing Team) dominated the Pirelli MXD class on Sunday the 17th of May, recording a second and a first across two motos, to claim a career first overall round win at Murray Bridge.

On one of the toughest tracks on the MX Nationals calendar, the Pirelli MXD field went head to head across two motos, with the sandy circuit sorting the boys from men early in the day.

In moto one, Raceline PirellI Suzuki‰Ûªs Jesse Madden pulled a huge hole shot, before Motorex KTM Australia‰Ûªs Wade Carter snatched the lead, followed by Tierney in second and series points leader Wilson Todd in third.

However after ten minutes the race order changed, with GYTR Yamaha‰Ûªs Todd taking the lead from Carter - Tierney and KTM‰Ûªs Jayden Rykers following suit and also making their way around Carter's KTM machine.

By the time the chequered flag flew, Todd continued his championship charge, taking the moto one win ahead of Tierney in second, and Jordan Hill (Yamaha) in third.

Race two of the day was where Tierney‰Ûªs consistency truly paid off.

The hole shot once again was claimed by Suzuki mounted Madden, however Tierney proved to be too quick ‰ÛÒ taking the race lead early in the moto, a lead which he did not relinquish.

With Tierney checked out, the battle was on for second place - Todd, Rykers and Madden all fighting for the same position.

However luck was not on Todd‰Ûªs side, the series points leader crashing hard just before the finish, meaning Rykers and Madden inherited second and third places respectively ‰ÛÒ Todd managing to recover and merely circulate for points.

At the conclusion of the round, the top step on the Pirelli MXD podium was claimed by Husqvarna‰Ûªs Tierney - collecting his first overall round win for 2015. Second place on the box was taken by KTM‰Ûªs Rykers, ahead of Yamaha mounted Hill who finished the round in third place respectively.

‰ÛÏToday was a good day, I worked really hard to get that win in the second moto and I‰Ûªm stoked to get an overall win for the team,‰Û
