Kirk Gibbs Snares Second ProMX Podium Of The Season At Murray Bridge

Posted:

Kirk Gibbs (5) took an emphatic holeshot in the MX1 class’s second moto.

Kirk Gibbs raced to a solid third overall at the Murray Bridge round of the 2024 Australian ProMX Championship, making a welcome return to the South Australian facility.

After setting the ninth-fastest qualifying time, the GASGAS Racing Team rider charged to third in the first MX1 moto of the weekend after having to discard his goggles mid-race and then backed that up with a holeshot in moto two on his way to another third result.

It was another sign of front-running form for the former national champion, picking up his second podium of the season in third position overall. Gibbs remains fourth in the MX1 title fight, 22 points off the series podium with three Queensland rounds remaining.

After finishing third at Myrray Bridge Kirk Gibbs now sits fourth in the 2024 ProMX Championship.

“Today ended up being good, although I was off the pace in Superpole and didn’t get the best gate pick as a result,” Gibbs explained. “I had a good battle with Brett Metcalfe in the first race, but I didn’t have any goggles – I don’t know how, but some dirt got under the roll-off, so I had to take them off and fight it out. I got a clean start in the second moto and got the holeshot, then held on for another P3 finish to end the day on the podium. It’s been five years since I’ve won a round and I’m hoping I can bridge the gap a bit more when the series heads to Queensland! The two front-runners are killing it, and I’d love to beat them at some stage, but I’ve got to enjoy these moments.”

Gibbs will continue when the series heads to Queensland for the sixth round of the season in Toowoomba on July 21.
