Serco Yamaha‰Ûªs Aaron Tanti is the new points leader in the SX2 division after round two of the Australian Supercross Championship, held in Adelaide over the weekend.
After posting a second place finish at the first round just a week ago, Tanti has again landed on the podium at round two with a hard fought third place finish and his consistent 2-3 results now see him on top of the SX2 championship table, two points clear of his nearest rival.
Tanti had to work hard for his podium result in Adelaide and after overcoming an average start he clawed his way past the carnage, and his competitors, to move into third place during the middle stages of the race.
With five laps to go, Tanti capitalised on a mistake by US based racer, Josh Osby, and was able to move into second place. Osby remounted quickly and set off after Tanti again and on the final lap was able to make a bold pass in the final few turns.
But it was still a spirited performance by Tanti and his consistency in the opening two rounds has been rewarded has he will carry the points leaders‰Ûª red plate into round three at Wollongong on November 9.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm pretty stoked to be on the box again this weekend and to leave here with the red plate,‰Û
