Mitch Evans consolidates third in Motul MX2 Title race
Serco Yamaha‰Ûªs MX2 rookie, Mitch Evans, has again landed on the podium at round nine of the MX Nationals, taking third place for the round and consolidated his third place in the championship with one round remaining.

Evans again showed blistering speed in both motos as he charged his way through the pack. A poor start in race one saw the north Queenslander floundering outside the top 10 on lap one but he piled on the pressure the entire length of the 30-minute moto to claw his way to third place by the time the chequered flag was shown.

A better start in moto two had him right in the thick of the battle with all three championship contenders at the pointy end. Unfortunately, Evans used up too much energy in race one and the tank was nearing empty in the final stages of race two where he again finished third.

He now sits 14 points away from the championship lead and only 10 points away from second place with the final round at Coolum always through up plenty of twists and turns in the championship chase.

‰ÛÏWhile I‰Ûªm a little disappointed with my day, I know this isn‰Ûªt over yet and the hard work myself and the team have been putting in will be rewarded,‰Û
