Luke Clout leads a Serco Yamaha 1-2 result at Murray Bridge

Posted:

Serco Yamaha‰Ûªs Luke Clout landed his first MX2 overall round victory with a stunning performance at round two of the MX Nationals at Murray Bridge over the weekend.

In a red letter day for the Serco Yamaha team, Clout lead home a Serco 1-2 with team mate Luke Styke over, coming a first race fall to take second overall for the round and both riders hold down the top two spots in the championship hunt.

18 year old Clout qualified in second place, just a few tenths behind his team mate, and took that form into race one. He took control of moto one in the early going and went on to stretch his lead each and every lap to take a comfortable victory.

Moto two turned into a Serco parade with Clout and Styke out front. Clout locked onto second place and shadowed his teammate for the full 30 minutes but safe in the knowledge that a 2-1 result would give him the round victory. He cruised over the finish a few seconds behind Styke with his fist in the air.

Styke had to fight off a big crash in the opening moto and a battered and bruised body to claim second for the round and maintain his lead in the championship.

Styke fell heavily on the opening lap and picked up his the chase well down the field. His pursuit took him all the way through the field to finish the race in an astounding third place and a brilliant bit of damage control for points.

Moto two was right from the Styke play book, holeshot and win, and that‰Ûªs exactly what he did. He took the win and instantly went back to the race truck and begin his recovery for the next weekend.

‰ÛÏTo finish up how I did considering what happened in race one was pretty good." Styke stated. "The bike got me in my crash so I‰Ûªm pretty sore right now but to leave here with second place and lose only two points from my lead is good.‰Û
