On his YZ125 he went 2-1-1 on the weekend for the overall win and ended 5th in the championship while on his YZ250F he took 1-1-1 results for a dominant round victory and ended the series in fourth overall in the title.

"I'm happy to get the win on both bikes again but it's a bummer I couldn't win a title,‰Û
Wil Carpenter pushed hard on both his bikes where he scored 2-2-2 results on his YZ65 to take second for the round and wrap up second in the championship.
Young Wil Carpenter came into the final round looking for a strong finish after a promising opening few rounds. He pushed hard on both his bikes where he scored 2-2-2 results on his YZ65 to take second for the round and wrap up second in the championship.

On his YZ85 he struggled a little with the heavy conditions and took 3-4-4 moto results for fourth on the day and fourth in the championship. Wil's growth as a rider has been very good over the series as he has he got stronger each round and closer to the leaders, which was awesome.

"I'm stoked with how things went today,‰Û
Alex Larwood
