Round three of the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship roared into Adelaide Motorsport Park in South Australia on Saturday night (October 28) and saw the Penrite CRF Honda Racing team‰Ûªs SX1 rider Joel Wightman joined by Nick Sutherland in the SX2 division, as a replacement for injured team rider Kyle Webster.

‰ÛÏHonestly, it was a frustrating event for me,‰Û
