Mike Brown Looking To Extend Points Lead At Sydney Dragway


Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team rider Mike Brown has built the platform, now it‰Ûªs time for the team‰Ûªs American guest rider to try and build the framework of a maiden championship win in the InsureMyRide Enduro-X Nationals, which continue tomorrow evening at the Sydney Dragway venue at Eastern Creek.

The full-time enduro-cross specialist was by far the dominant rider in the series‰Ûª first round three weeks ago at Brisbane's Archerfield Speedway, setting the fastest qualifying time and winning the first two finals before settling for a safe second in the last.

The popular Enduro-X format pits off-road racers against each other and the clock around a specially constructed course of natural and man-made obstacles, and the Californian will look to build on the 12-point lead he takes into this round, ahead of Josh Green and Toby Price.

‰ÛÏIt's good to be here early." Brown said on his arrival in Sydney. "Everything is good, I've been riding a lot at home, training hard for this and our own races at home that start next weekend, but we‰Ûªre good to go.

"I‰Ûªm looking forward to Sydney, they always build good tracks so I'm sure that will be great, but rider-wise, I'm sure everyone will have stepped up a little bit and will be more prepared than they were for the first one so yeah, it should be good.

"If I can get another race like I had at the first one it will be good, so I‰Ûªll push hard in this race and see where I am at the end of the day.‰Û

Brown's Husqvarna teammate Lachy Stanford was unable to convert his early evening speed into good series points after struggling all night with starts, but is confident his recent training efforts will stand him in better stead next time round.

‰ÛÏI just want to have a much better run this time round." Stanford explained. "I didn't have much fun in Brisbane, but you have bad days and bad nights.

"The bike was really good in the first round, like the two practice sessions we had the bike was working really well and I was running around fifth in the times and feeling really good. It‰Ûªs just when it came race time I didn't put it together like I wanted to. So I've gone back and worked on a few things over the break and I think I'm ready to go.

"My biggest problem in Brisbane was that I couldn't get off the start, so I've worked on that, and now I'm excited again and looking forward to just having another race.‰Û
