As the Monster Energy S-X Open concludes in Auckland for 2019, fans were treated to an action-packed show that saw the event reach it‰Ûªs climax when 2018 World Supercross Champion Jason Anderson took the top honours in the premier SX1 Class, and subsequently assumes the points lead in the S-X Open FIM Oceania Supercross Championship.

Anderson didn‰Ûªt have it easy however, with a stiff challenge from new Australian Supercross Championship points leader Luke Clout, who stood on the podium in P2 with a victory in race two of the Triple Crown format, along with South Australian legend Brett Metcalfe, who took third overall.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm stoked to grab the win here in Auckland, the racing was super intense tonight. It‰Ûªs always a blast to come over here and race in front of these fans ‰ÛÒ I‰Ûªll look to keep the ball rolling come Melbourne,‰Û

For Clout, a second place to the 2018 World Champion was as good as a win, as he states that he‰Ûªs ‰Û÷back‰Ûª after a few turbulent years of supercross and motocross competition.

‰ÛÏI said to my brother this week; I‰Ûªm back. There‰Ûªs a lot of stuff behind the scenes that people haven‰Ûªt seen, and for a while there I didn‰Ûªt really even want to ride a dirt bike. I‰Ûªve got that passion back, and my eyes are back on the United States,‰Û

Points leader going into the round Justin Brayton crashed while leading the final moto in a costly mistake, the defending champion now drops to second place behind Clout with a single point deficit and one round remaining.

Fan favourite Chad Reed crashed in the second corner of his heat race and took no further part in the night.

The racing in the quarter-litre SX2 category was electrifying, with Australian SX2 Supercross point‰Ûªs leader Josh Osby taking the top spot, posting the most consistent result through the Triple Crown format. Penrite Honda‰Ûªs Chris Blose claimed second, with Australian Aaron Tanti rounding out the podium.

‰ÛÏIt feels so good to extend my points lead. The crowd here was insane tonight; every time they went nuts, I wanted to know what was happening! I‰Ûªm keen to get back to work and look to wrap up the Australian Championship in Melbourne,‰Û
