Reardon Makes It Three In A Row At Jimboomba
On a night when the heat of the on-track action matched the blistering ambient temperature, last nights GoPro fourth round of the 2015 Australian Supercross Championship presented by Penrite Oils at Jimboomba X Stadium in south-east Queensland delivered an absolute feast of action.

Ultimately it was CDR Yamaha's Dan Reardon and Davey Motorsports KTM's Lewis Woods wearing the biggest smiles of all after taking the wins in the SX1 and SX2 Championship classes respectively.

For SX1 Championship leader Reardon, tonight's Jimboomba event saw him capture his third straight round win of the series and extend his advantage over arch rival and defending champion, Team Motul Suzuki's Matt Moss.

Reardon was in blistering form all night long, much to the delight of the partisan local crowd, setting the fastest qualifying time and winning both SX1 heat races.

But in the main event Moss grabbed the vital holeshot, however Reardon was immediately on his tail out of the first turn, the pair soon locking horns through the first lap before Moss lost control of his front end coming into a hairpin turn and fell.

The drop left Moss with no option but to put his head down and charge back through the pack on the technical and hard packed track if he wanted to keep his Championship hopes alive.

And for the third straight round, that's just what Moss did, the gutsy Suzuki ace working right back through the field to take an eventual second place finish.

But out front Reardon was also doing what has now become his habit ‰ÛÒ winning ‰ÛÒ the SX1 Comeback King gapping the field to take his third straight round win as he slowly but surely stamps his domination over the Championship, with just two rounds now left to run.

Behind Reardon and Moss, second CDR Yamaha rider Kade Mosig rode strong all race to nail down a solid third place finish, while NPS Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing's Adam Monea and DPH Motorsports Peter Stevens Yamaha's Lawson Bopping filled the top five.

Atop the post-race podium, Gold Coaster Reardon was once again delighted to get another Jimboomba win for the south-east Queensland fans, who again turned out in force, despite roasting temperatures approaching 40 degrees centigrade through the afternoon.

‰ÛÏThis one is a really critical round in the Championship, so I‰Ûªm rapt to get the win for all the fans here in Queensland that have come out to support me, as well as keep the momentum and open up a few more points lead in the series,‰Û

In the SX2 Championship racing at Jimboomba, the win streak of American invader Jimmy Decotis (Penrite Honda Racing) was finally broken, and it was young Victorian rider Lewis Woods from the Davey Motorsports KTM team who took the prized scalp.

Woods used a blistering start in the SX2 main event alongside fellow Newcastle KTM runner Dylan Wills to quickly open a gap over the pack, while a crash just off the elevated startline that involved SX2 Championship runner-up Luke Clout (Serco Yamaha) left him at the back of the pack.

Woods set a cracking pace at the front of the field, as all eyes looked for Decotis, who was running top five in the opening laps and slowly but surely making his way forward until catching second placed Wills, when the pair tangled. Decotis managed to keep his place, while Wills had to fight back to an eventual fifth place finish.

In the closing laps of the race, Woods proved his mettle and kept making the front running, despite Decotis moving ever closer, but this time around the American couldn‰Ûªt pull off one of his come from behind wins, and instead had to settle for runner-up behind the KTM rider.

An elated Woods was rapt to take the SX2 win, which came after he earlier in the night won the Best Whip contest.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been a great night,‰Û
