Kyle Webster Powers Honda Back Onto The MX2 Podium
On a day when Mother Nature played her part in turning on extremely challenging track conditions at the Broadford circuit just north of Melbourne, Victoria, CRF Honda Racing‰Ûªs new recruit Kyle Webster rose to the occasion to finish second overall on the day with two mighty podium performances in the MX2 category at round three of the 2016 Motul MX Nationals championships.

Overnight storms turned the iconic Victorian race track into a quagmire, forcing the cancellation of timed qualifying and leaving riders with limited opportunity to prepare themselves for the extremely slick conditions.

Webster though was ready to rise to the occasion and thanks to a strong start that put him amongst the top six runners on the first lap of the opening MX2 moto, the speedy Sandgroper kept his Honda CRF250R firing and pushed forward to take an eventual second place finish behind Jed Beaton.

Boosted by the big result, Webster was keen for more in moto two, and with the track drying and conditions improving, the CRF Honda Racing rider kept up the strong form to finish third in moto two behind Beaton and Luke Arbon. With a 2/3 moto scorecard for the day, Webster locked down second overall for the round, splitting Beaton and Arbon, to give the Honda Red Riders their first MX2 podium placing at the MX Nationals in two years.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really rapt with today,‰Û
