Matt Moss moves into MX Nationals title contention with second at Wonthaggi

Posted:

Second overall at Wonthaggi‰Ûªs third round of the Monster Energy MX Nationals, Australian Motocross Championship, has helped Matt Moss climb to second in the MX1 championship standings aboard the Motul Pirelli Suzuki RM-Z450.

The multiple-time national MX2 champion enjoyed his best round of the season on a chilly day in southern Victoria on Sunday, 5 May, qualifying on Super Pole to commence the round and taking home the five points that went with it.

From there he soldiered on to fourth in moto one and third in the second for the runner-up position overall, moving from fifth in the standings to second after three of 10 rounds. After claiming fifth at the opening two stops, Moss has momentum on his side as the halfway point approaches.

‰ÛÏToday went good from the start, we qualified good in the session and then managed to convert that to Super Pole, which was nice,‰Û

Motul Pirelli Suzuki teammate Cody Cooper endured another mixed round on board his factory RM-Z450, qualifying eighth before racing to a solid second in the opening moto. Eighth in moto two was a frustrating finish to the round for the two-time New Zealand champion, resulting in fifth for the round. He now sits fourth overall in the championship.

It was another promising performance for Cooper, however he‰Ûªs motivated to improve his qualifying and moto two performances in the lead-up to round four in a fortnight‰Ûªs time. The opening moto also saw Cooper pocket the $100 Suzuki Holeshot Award ‰ÛÒ a new incentive across all categories in the MX Nationals for 2013.

‰ÛÏThe day started off slow, but we changed the fork setting and it was awesome for moto one. I was able to start strong and finished second, so that was a positive start to the round,‰Û
