Kyle Webster hospitalised after Bacchus Marsh Supercross crash
Round two of the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship descended on Bacchus Marsh near Melbourne, Victoria, on Saturday night (October 14) and for the Penrite CRF Honda Racing team it was an evening of very mixed fortunes.

In the SX2 class, Kyle Webster kicked off proceedings with fifth fastest time in Qualifying before snaring a strong second place finish in his Heat race behind Hayden Mellross.

Boosted by a strong start to proceedings, Webster was in a confident mood heading into the SX2 Final, however luck was not on his side when he crashed heavily and was struck by his bike, the impact leaving him with injured vertebrae.

Meanwhile in the SX1 class, Penrite CRF Honda Racing‰Ûªs Joel Wightman continued to ply his trade in his debut season aboard the thundering CRF450R, the NSW Hunter Valley based rider carding an eighth place finish is his Heat race, before finishing 13th in the SX1 Final. Wightman now holds down 12th place in the SX1 Championship after two rounds.

‰ÛÏRound two featured a really technical track, as the dirt went hard packed and broke away, plus when you throw in the moisture coming up at night, it was a tough gig to nail the big rhythm sections every lap, not to mention the big whoops were a real challenge as well,‰Û
