Matt Moss and Jimmy Decotis Come Out On Top At Bathurst


Rain failed to deter visitors to the opening round of the 2015 Supercheap Auto Australian Supercross Championship with nearly 5000 enthusiastic race fans packing Bathurst Showgrounds last night.

Boasting the biggest field in over five years, the opening round racing was world-class with International riders Gavin Faith (USA), Anthony Rodriguez (Venezuela) and Jimmy Decotis (USA) taking on Australia‰Ûªs best.

Defending SX1 Champion Matt Moss (Motul Pirelli Suzuki) launched his campaign for a third consecutive Supercross title in emphatic style, topping both practice and qualifying as well as winning his heat race and the 15 Lap SX1 final.

Moss grabbed the holeshot and led every lap of the 15 Lap final, despite coming under pressure from American Gavin Faith (Penrite Honda) and CDR Yamaha's Dan Reardon who battled it out for the final two spots on the podium.

The final race order saw Moss take the chequered flag ahead of Reardon and Faith.

American Jimmy Decotis (Penrite Honda) took the opening round win in the SX2 class ahead of Luke Clout (Serco Yamaha) and Luke Arbon (Husqvarna).

The American was a force to be reckoned with, winning his heat race over 13 seconds ahead of Geran Stapleton before a comfortable win in the 12 lap SX2 final.

‰ÛÏWhat an awesome way to start my first supercross season in Australia," Decotis said.

‰ÛÏI had a blast last night, everything ran smoothly and I am really blessed to be working with such a fantastic team.

‰ÛÏThe track was pretty cool and I really enjoyed racing against the guys in the SX2 class it was a lot of fun," he added.

The Australian Supercross Championship will now head to Jimboomba, Queensland for the second round of the series, which will be held on Saturday 17 October.
