The Penrite Honda factory team are keen to keep the momentum going after a successful start to the Australian Supercross Championship.

Team Director Yarrive Konsky attributed the teams round 1 success to continual testing to ensure riders felt as comfortable as possible heading into the season.

‰ÛÏRacing provides the best platform to test everything. We gathered a lot of data before and after round 1 and have spent valuable time testing over the three-week break. Every tenth counts, we feel we have achieved some positive gains and will push to keep that points lead in the SX1 and hope to improve our position in the SX2.‰Û

Brayton‰Ûªs teammate Brett Metcalfe is no stranger to tough competition having raced the best riders all over the world. The South Australian sits 2nd in the Championship and his goal is to maintain podium finishes.

I am enjoying racing Supercross. We have a competitive bike and testing between rounds has been extremely effective. I can‰Ûªt wait for the gate to drop this weekend, my goal is to be on the podium.
Brett Metcalfe
The teams SX2 rider Bradley Taft has enjoyed the break, settling into solid routine for his riding and training. Taft finished 2nd in round 1 and also understands the importance of consistency.

‰ÛÏI need to be consistent; we all know every point counts. It‰Ûªs been good to have a few weeks to settle and prepare. I know it sounds funny as I am from America but this is my home race as we are based on the Sunshine Coast and I feel this will be an advantage as I will be able to sleep at our house and eat at home which all helps,‰Û
