Motul Pirelli Suzuki‰Ûªs recently crowned MX Nationals champion Matt Moss won rounds one and two of the 2013 Australian Supercross Championships at Darwin‰Ûªs Hidden Valley Raceway in the Northern Territory on 14-15 September.
Moss and the Suzuki RM-Z450 were flawless under the hot and humid Top End sunshine, qualifying fastest on Saturday, winning the second heat race of the afternoon and then topping the 15-lap main event with an assertive 4.676-second advantage.
Sunday saw a repeat performance from the triple Australian Supercross Lites champion, again leading qualifying, winning his heat race and battling through for the main event victory.
Moss worked his way forward from third in the early laps, remaining composed before taking charge at the front on lap 10 of the 15. From there he accelerated to a comfortable 5.520-second winning margin.
"It feels good," Moss said. "We've got Dan Reardon training us off the bike, my dad coaching us and a great team behind us - the 2014 Suzuki RM-Z450 is the best machine out there. I got my brother Jake to come down from Queensland to ride with me and it's definitely paying off.
"I'm really happy for the guys at Motul Pirelli Suzuki, we're a one rider team this year so there's a lot of pressure on me, but I thank Jay Foreman, Jess, Nathan and the truck driver - this is a real team effort. It's been a tough race in this heat and not being used to it."
