Justin Brayton takes back to back SX1 Supercross titles

Posted:

The final round of the Australian Supercross Championship held in Jimboomba, Queensland on Saturday night proved to be the most challenging conditions riders had seen all season.

Penrite Honda‰Ûªs Justin Brayton rode cleverly and finished 5th for the round which was enough to secure his second overall Australian Supercross Championship victory.

‰ÛÏTonight was the toughest Supercross race I think I have competed in; it was a matter of survival. Riders were crashing without warning so I needed to remind myself throughout the final that to win the championship we needed to finish.‰Û

The team was proud of Brayton‰Ûªs achievements throughout the championship; he claimed three wins and a third on his way to his second overall victory. Brayton was appreciative of the opportunity and the support.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs an enormous effort by everyone to make this happen. Honda throughout the world came together to win this championship and all of our partners did the same. It‰Ûªs a championship without borders and I am proud of what we achieved.‰Û

Team principal Yarrive Konsky proved Honda‰Ûªs 250 programs were just as competitive as the 450.

‰ÛÏTo take two 1st place finishes and three 2nd place finishes was rewarding. We really put in a diligent effort but the overall eluded us because of an injury. This really makes you appreciate the championships you do claim. It‰Ûªs inevitable that in Supercross and Motocross injuries can occur and rob you of an ultimate victory.‰Û
