Kirk Gibbs landed on the podium at the second round of the 2024 Australian ProMX Championship with a spirited rider to third place overall at Horsham, Victoria.

MX1 charger Gibbs put his previous experience around the hard-packed Horsham circuit to good use. Gibbs was on the pace from the outset, with the Queensland-based rider blasting his way to the third-fastest lap in the Top 10 Super Pole Shootout.

The former national champion then carried that same pace into the first of the day’s two motos, racing to a fifth place. It was the second moto where he made his move, clawing his way to an impressive third-place result to finish the day third overall in his first podium since joining GASGAS for 2024.

Gibbs is now positioned seventh in the standings, just two points shy of fifth, heading into the third round.

“It was a decent day all-in-all and a podium is always a plus!” Gibbs said “I struggled a tiny bit in the first moto, as the front group broke away and I was in my own land, riding by myself. After that though, I had a bit more fight in that last moto, which was a lot better. I got up to third and that put me third overall, so it’s awesome to get back on the podium and hopefully, it’s the first of many more to come this year!”

Gibbs will be back in action when the next round takes place at Gillman, SA, his home state.
