Matt Moss dominates SX1 while Faith takes charge of SX2 in Bathurst
The second round of the Penrite Australian Supercross double-header in Bathurst didn‰Ûªt disappoint, with Motul Suzuki rider Matt Moss asserting his dominance in the SX1 class while Penrite Oil Honda Racing‰Ûªs Gavin Faith climbed to the top step of the SX2 podium last night.

As the sun set for the evening, thousands of supercross fans descended Mount Panorama to watch Australia‰Ûªs best racers compete at Bathurst Showground. With a full program of racing, as well as FMX and Monster Truck performances, there was plenty of action.

With back-to-back rounds, racers had to regroup quickly and either put behind a poor result from the night before, or focus on consolidating their strong position.

In the SX1 class Suzuki rider Matt Moss once again stole the show, leading the 20-lap final from start to finish. NP Monster Energy Kawasaki‰Ûªs Adam Monea replicated his performance from the night before with another solid second place finish but it was behind these two guys that the most exciting racing was taking place.

Lawson Bopping put on another charge to claim the final podium position, but it was not before battles with Jay Marmont, Kirk Gibbs, Jake Moss and Sam Martin.

At the completion of the double-header Matt Moss leads the SX1 class by six points ahead of Monea and Bopping.

‰ÛÏI am really happy with the way we have started the season,‰Û

With the experience of racing the US AMA SX series, Boardstix Motorsports Taylor Potter jockeyed his way to an early lead in the SX2 final and held the lead comfortably for well over half of the final.

Potter was passed by race winner Gavin Faith on Lap (insert) of the race. The American didn‰Ûªt get the best start but progressively moved through the field and once past Potter, he was never headed.

‰ÛÏI actually had a pretty solid weekend,‰Û
