Expert Lites will also be worth coming to watch, with young gun and clear series leader Jett Anderson looking to build on his awesome early series form.

Gibbs will surely test young Jett, but riders like Steve Pontin, Tyson Whillas and Ricky Girdwood will be out to showcase their skills and with the quality field it is sure to be great racing. Young riders Izak Maule, after a successful round 2 result, Tyler Lange and Aaron Hart will also be keen to push for success.

‰ÛÏThe Motorcross Riders Association and the Gillman MX Track is one of SA‰Ûªs strongest clubs and most used facilities." McArdle commented.

"With this round being the only metropolitan round in 2013, local riders will be wanting to exploit their knowledge to the fullest, and take advantage of not having to travel for the weekends racing‰Û

In Junior competition, all eyes will be Alex Larwood and Port Lincoln rider Siegah Ward who have both been putting in outstanding performances in the opening rounds.

The racing in junior ranks has been close and exciting this season. Other solid performers so far in the series, and current class leaders include Thomas Larwood, Liam Dinnage, Nick Day and Ryan Kenny. All are exciting young talents and it will be great to watch their progress in coming years.

Spectators are encouraged to get along to witness what is sure to be some great racing as SA‰Ûªs talented MX riders put on a show. MX Nationals regular Kirk Gibbs will be competing in the Expert Lites and Expert Open classes. Entry is via Wilkins Road, Gillman, with admission $5, 15 and under Free.
