Luke McNeill wins Australian FMX Championship Qualifier

Posted:

New South Wales Freestyle motocross rider Luke McNeill got his 2013 campaign off to a flying start by winning the qualifying round of the 2013 Australian FMX Championships (AFMXC) at Boonah, Qld on Sunday.

Coming off a lengthy injury, McNeill headed off a spirited challenge from 13 other hopefuls including property owner Callum Shaw and young up-and-comer Luke Davey to claim the day‰Ûªs honours.

The top five qualifiers of McNeill, Shaw, Davey, Gyles Stainton and Jake Smith have now won the opportunity to contest the opening round of the AFMXC, the JetPilot Invitational on the Sunshine Coast this weekend.

The format for Sunday‰Ûªs qualifying contest was simple: each rider would undertake two runs, with their best effort determining their placing. McNeill and Shaw quickly placed themselves at the head of the field, with the biggest battles unfolding for the remaining three qualifying positions; just fractions of a point separated positions fifth through to eighth in the final wash-up.

Series organiser Joel Rayner was impressed with the quality of everyone‰Ûªs skilled, safe and determined riding over both the two 75-foot ramps and two dirt doubles.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm so stoked with the level of riding we saw here today,‰Û
