Nathan Crawford has broken through for a first MX1 moto victory at the second round of the 2024 Australian ProMX Championship in Horsham, Victoria, on his way to an impressive second position overall.

Crawford finished the day with 1-2 results across the pair of premier class races and tying him on points for the overall, with winner Jed Beaton but was credited second on count-back following the final encounter.

Calm, cloudy weather greeted the racers to the hard-packed Horsham circuit, where Crawford was immediately on-pace, qualifying second-fastest in the Top 10 Super Pole Shootout.

Crawford rocketed off the start in Moto One, rounding the first turn just behind the leader. Frenzied racing ensued as he was involved in a three-way battle for the lead, ultimately gaining the upper hand in the closing stages to pull clear and claim victory by 1.5 seconds.

In the second moto, Crawford found himself inside the top three early on once again, before working his way into an eventual second place, where he finished the moto and round. His solid results have seen him jump to third in the MX1 point standings following two of eight rounds.

“I finished second overall on the day, splitting moto wins and ended equal on points. I’m stoked to get my first MX1 moto win – that felt really good!” Crawford enthused. “This MX1 class is stacked, but I felt strong all day, my starts were good and the day went really smoothly. I was top of the times in practice for a long time until the last lap, then in Superpole I finished second, then went 1-2 in the motos and tied on points for the round win. This has me really excited for the next round at Gillman!”
