SB Motosport Suzuki ECSTAR SX1 racers, Jayden Rykers and Cody Dyce, have continued to stay on course with the goals they set out for the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship when the second round visited the Gilman Speedway track in South Australia for round 2 on Saturday, October the 19th.
With the RM-Z450 mounted duo, both completing a full round of racing for the first time in their Supercross careers at round one the week prior, things looked as they may go a little off track early in the day in Adelaide.
Rykers riding cautiously in the early stages of practice, miss-timed a double/triple rhythm section, coming up very short as he attempted to triple out. Luckily the West Aussie was able to gather it all up before the following turn.
The 22-year-old spent the rest of the evening regaining his confidence and by nights end had turned his night around, rebounding from a rear of the field start in the nights 20 lap main event to finish with a very respectable 11th place finish, and maintain his top ten position in the championship standings, currently sitting 9th.
‰ÛÏThat was a tough track today, it was bigger than anything I have seen before with big rhythms, and it really took a bit of time to work out the fastest and safest way to work my way around the track, especially once it got rougher as the night went on.
‰ÛÏI was able to gain confidence and pace right throughout the 20lap main event; I didn‰Ûªt get the best of starts but was able to work my way up to 11th position, which I am happy with.
"Just over a week ago I had never completed a round of Supercross in my career, two rounds in and I am sitting inside the top ten in points.
‰ÛÏI learned a lot out there tonight, and there is a lot I can take away from every session on track today; with a three-week break before the next round in Wollongong, it will give me a chance to go away and work on a few things I feel I can improve on.
