The inaugural 2018 King Of MX entrant ranks have been bolstered with the news that 2017 NSW State champions Kyle Webster and Joel Wightman have committed to ride the event, set to be the richest single MX event in the country, with the final held at Coonabarabran on the June Long Weekend.
Penrite CRF Honda team riders Kyle and Joel took out the two main senior classes last year, and with the re-invention of the NSW Titles into the new King Of MX format, it now provides even more challenges, and more opportunities for both riders.
Not only will there be State Titles up for grabs, but the $10,000 King Of MX feature race will see the top riders from MX1, MX2, MXD, Vets and C grade all do battle for the crown in one mega event, meaning these two former teammates will be able to fight against each other, despite riding different capacity Hondas.
Last year‰Ûªs MX2 champ, Kyle Webster, said ‰ÛÏI Cant wait to race the King of Motocross. I‰Ûªve only done a practice day at that track and it would be great to race on it. I‰Ûªll see how we can get my Penrite CRF Honda 250 to chase some of the 450‰Ûªs‰Û
