The SB Motorsports ECSTAR Suzuki race team were graced by greatness at the SX-Open Supercross Auckland on Saturday the 16th of November.
Playing host to the 4th round of the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship, Mt Smart Stadium was bought to life as some of the world best racers joined the Australasian regulars as the series stepped into overdrive.
Two of the big international stars joined the Suzuki pits for the weekend, with both Suzuki icon and the man known around the world as the GOAT (Greatest of All-Time) Ricky Carmichael, along with newly signed JGR Suzuki racer Joey Savatgy aboard his Factory Suzuki RM-Z450 for the first time.
For the team‰Ûªs two Australian racers, Jayden Rykers and Cody Dyce the round was another excellent learning experience, as both push towards completing their first full Australian supercross series.
Rykers who headed into the round sitting 9th the championship standings, got the team‰Ûªs day off to a great start, narrowly missing the holeshot in his heat, before Dyce managed to go one better in the second SX1 heat race, leading the field through the first turn.
