Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing rider Kyle Webster made almost every post a winner in an inspiring performance that saw him capture the Pirelli MX2 class wins at rounds four and five of the MX Nationals staged at Murray Bridge in South Australia over the weekend.

Webster and his Pirelli-shod Honda CRF250R thumper attacked the dry red racing surface of the Murray Bridge track in South Australia in dominant fashion, kicking off with the fastest Qualifying time on Saturday morning and then taking two race wins in the opening back-to-back sprint motos.

Webster then completed the day with a nail-biting charge from behind in Saturday‰Ûªs third and final moto, finishing in second place, less than a bike length behind arch rival and MX2 number one plate holder Wilson Todd.

A 1-1-2 scorecard delivered Webster the round four overall win and his first round victory of the 2019 MX Nationals season. ‰ÛÏThings couldn‰Ûªt have gone much better!‰Û
Come Sunday‰Ûªs round five, Webster was once again in scintillating form
Come Sunday‰Ûªs round five, Webster was once again in scintillating form. He fired his Penrite-lubricated Honda to fourth fastest time in Qualifying, then in the day‰Ûªs opening moto took a comfortable ten second win over Junior World Champion Bailey Malkiewicz.

In Sunday‰Ûªs second moto, Webster settled in behind early pacesetter Wilson Todd, to take a comfortable second place and seal the overall round win with a 1-2 scorecard for the day.

‰ÛÏI can‰Ûªt ask for much more, with two round wins in two days,‰Û
In the MXD category, Rhys Budd once again pushed his Rekluse clutch-equipped Honda CRF250R to the sharp end of the pack,
In the MXD category, Rhys Budd once again pushed his Rekluse clutch-equipped Honda CRF250R to the sharp end of the pack, battling with Brodie Ellis and Championship leader Reagan Duffy in Saturday‰Ûªs opening moto to eventually finish fourth.

Budd then backed up in race two to finish third in the moto and clinch third overall for the day behind Duffy and Maximus Purvis (Yamaha), and in the process take another solid swag of championship points.

On Sunday, Budd endured a round filled with mixed fortunes after posting third fastest time in morning Qualifying.

‰ÛÏI was then running fourth in the first moto on Sunday and crashed, and unfortunately I had to wait for every rider to go past before I could get my bike and get going again,‰Û
