Mitch Evans back on the podium

Posted:

Yamalube Yamaha Racing‰Ûªs Mitch Evans made a return to the podium with a second place finish at round six of the MX Nationals, held at Nowra on the weekend.

Contesting the MXD (under 19) class, Evans put together two consistent motos to finish second in each to land in second place for the day and lift him to third overall in the championship with four rounds remaining.

Evans continued on his good form shown at the last MXD round and charged his way to second place in race one and shadowed the race winner across the finish line.

Moto two saw Evans pull the holeshot but he was unable to hold the position and by the midway point, Wade Kirkland moved into the lead. Evans kept the pressure on and the pair were separated by a handful of bike lengths for most of the race but he couldn‰Ûªt regain the lead.

‰ÛÏWas a good day without being amazing,‰Û
Jordan Hill
Evans' team-mate Jordan Hill suffered from average starts in both motos and had to claw his way through the pack each time. He took eighth in race one and then improved in moto two to take fifth to end the day in sixth overall.

The Nowra track can be difficult to make passes on so Hill had his work cut out for him but continued to fight hard as he made his way forward.

‰ÛÏI wasn‰Ûªt feeling great on the track today and I‰Ûªm not sure why as I had a great lead up to the event and was confident of a good showing. My starts and opening lap were an issue today as this track strings the field out pretty fast and you need to be need the front early to get good results.

‰ÛÏBut, the team and I will continue to work on things and the next round will we be much better,‰Û
