Luke Clout in titanic points battle for MX1 supremacy


Luke Clout now sits just two points behind championship leader Todd Waters.
The equation is simple, with two rounds remaining of the 2019 MX Nationals, CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team star, Luke Clout, is just two points away from the championship lead and determined to put his best foot forward at the final rounds this weekend in order to secure his maiden MX1 championship.

Despite a tough weekend at round eight of the championship last week at Moree where Clout finished ninth in the only moto contested, Clout now sits just two points behind championship leader, Todd Waters and this weekend at Coolum looms a balls to the wall, winner take all shoot-out as three riders enter the weekend separated by 14 points.

Clout left Moree frustrated as he fell in the opening moto as the field left the first turn and by the time he regathered himself and his bike, he was a distant last and desperate for points. He toiled away during the 15 lap event and managed to climb his way back to ninth place but surrendered valuable to his championship rivals.

‰ÛÏThe weekend didn‰Ûªt go the way I wanted it to, and I was just too impatient on the opening lap,‰Û
Moree event proved to be a good one for Clout's team mate Kirk Gibbs.
The Moree event proved to be a good one for team mate, Kirk Gibbs, who finished second on the day in another strong performance. Gibbs lead the majority of the 15 lap race only to battle arm pump later in the race and fall into the clutches of Todd Waters, by made his move with just a few laps to go.

Still, it was a promising performance from Gibbs and continues his good form his has shown in recent rounds. Had he not missed a round in South Australia due to a shoulder injury, Gibbs would make it a four way battle for the championship lead.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm a little disappointed not to get the race win as you never want to lead for that long and not actually get the W,‰Û
