Jay Wilson has brought home Raceline Pirelli KTM‰Ûªs first ever SX2 round win since the team‰Ûªs formation, after recording yet another podium finish at the final round of the Australian Supercross Championship at Jimboomba over the weekend.
Following his first podium finish in two years at the AUS-X Open just one week ago, Wilson headed into the final event of the season high on confidence, finishing the last outing of the series with a perfect score card.
With Jimboomba absolutely drenched with rain throughout the weekend, riders were forced to contend with the wettest and muddiest conditions of the season, but 23-year-old Wilson adapted and proved that he‰Ûªs the consummate professional indoors and outdoors.
Wilson qualified in the top position in the SX2 class on Saturday with a flying 58.667 lap time, then backed up his performance in his heat collecting the race win - but it was the main event which delivered Wilson and the Raceline Pirelli KTM team with a fairy tale finish to 2017.
After holeshotting, Wilson charged to the SX2 final win, lapping up to fifth place and taking the race victory by a huge 51.291 seconds ‰ÛÒ simply unheard of in Supercross terms. With a strong finish at Jimboomba, Wilson also concluded the 2017 Australian Supercross series in third in the SX2 Championship standings.
‰ÛÏWow! The last round at Jimboomba was absolutely everything I‰Ûªve been working towards ‰ÛÒ we qualified fastest, won the heat race and the main event so we couldn‰Ûªt have done any more,‰Û
