Hundreds of riders were challenged as they tackled the slippery Monarto Motocross Track on the first full day of finals action.

The youngsters in the 50cc Auto 7-U9 class put on a brave showing in the challenging conditions. Liam Andrews from Victoria came home in front of Noah Ferguson from Queensland and Corben Weinert from Western Australia.

Caleb Clifton from NSW took line honours in the 65cc 7-U9 years, dominating the third final to make it home streaks ahead of Lance Cameron and Tristan Rayner from Queensland.

The 65cc 9-U11's took to the track for a thrilling first final event, with Callum Norton (GMR Motorex KTM) crossing the finish line with a solid lead over WA's Caleb Grouthes and NSW's Blake Cobbin (North Coast KTM).

Hunter Lawrence (KTM Australia) from Queensland continued his recent good form, taking out the third final event of the 65cc 11-U13's ahead of Tassie rider Wade Kirkland and Western Australian rider Tom West.

Lawrence continued to dominant the track, storming home to take the first finals event for the 85cc 9-U12 class with more than 30 seconds grace over Callum Norton (GMR Motorex KTM) and Queenslander Mitch Johnstone.

Egan Mastin (GMR Motorex KTM) from NSW conquered the track in style to claim the first 85cc 12-U14 final ahead of Queenslanders Wilson Todd (Yamaha Junior Racing) and Mitchell Evans (GMR Motorex KTM Racing).

The 85cc 14-U16 class was an action packed race, taken out by Victoria's Mitchell Landy in front of WA's Scott Kramer and US rider Keith Tuker.

The 100-150cc 13-U15 class was taken out by US rider Jordan Smith, who was tailed to the chequered flag by Queenslanders Jayden Rykers and Joel Dinsdale (Yamaha Junior Racing QLD).

Honda's Wayde Carter cleaned up the third final in the 150cc 12-U14, with the young Victorian followed over the finish line by Zac Small from Queensland and Connor Tierney from Western Australia.

The third final of the 150cc 14-U16 provided some spectacular action, with Scott Kramer from Western Australia taking line honours in the third final event ahead of NSW riders Corey Hamilton and Ty Gear.

The first final of the 100-150cc 15 years class was played out in the mud, with New Zealand rider Hamish Harwood nudging home in front of Scott Mann (GMR Motorex KTM) from NSW and Jack Simpson (Top Gear KTM) from Victoria.

NSW rider Kade Purcell (Woody's Motorcycles) took out the third final event of the 150cc 9-U12's, roaring home ahead of Mitch Johnstone and Queensland's Mason Rowe.

The first final of the 250cc 13-U15 belonged to Jordan Smith, who claimed honours ahead of Joel Dinsdale and WA's Kyle Webster.

Scott Mann finished a strong day with a victory in the first final of the 250 15 years class, with the Hayden Mellross (Honda Junior Development Team) and Hamish Harwood putting down the second and third fastest times.

The girls put on a brilliant performance in the muddy conditions, handling the slippery track with class. NSW rider Tayla Jones had a cracker of a day, taking line honours in the third finals of the Female Lites and the Female 85cc and 150cc 12-U16 years classes.

Victorian rider Emma Milesevic also performed strongly, claiming third in the Lites and second in 85cc and 150cc finals. Mackenzie Tricker (Yamaha Junior Racing) and Madison Tyndall (AJS Shepparton) also put on a good showing, with Tricker securing second in the Lites and Tyndall grabbing third in the 85cc and 150cc class.

The finals will continue tomorrow, with the sixth day of competition set to see 16 finals events cross the grid at the Monarto Motocross Track.
