Lewis Woods and Daniel Banks Earn Maximum South Cup Points

Posted:

Suzuki rider Lewis Woods (MX1) and KTM pilot Daniel Banks (MX2) have taken opening round honours in the 2014 South Cup at the Monster Energy MX Nationals.

Woods had a consistent round at the Broadford event with 15th, 14th and 14th place finishes from his three races in the Motul MX1 class, while Banks managed 18th, 17th and 9th from his three races in the Pirelli MX2 class.

The South Cup is a separate competition designed exclusively for privateers with points accumulated from the Broadford, Wonthaggi, Swan Hill and Murray Bridge rounds of the championship.

In the Motul MX1 class, Suzuki rider Matt Ginders (18th, 18th and 15th) finished second overall while Kawasaki rider Alex Morris came in third overall (14th, 22nd and 19th).

‰ÛÏI haven‰Ûªt raced since the first round last year ‰ÛÒ I didn‰Ûªt do any more motocross last year because of my injuries so it was a good start on the weekend,‰Û
