Many thought that Sunshine Coaster Jesse Dobson had big enough boots to fill stepping up as Gibbs‰Ûª teammate for the Supercross championship, but few realised it was the 17-year-old‰Ûªs first Supercross, thus making his 10, 7 finishes for the weekend and even more impressive achievement.
‰ÛÏMy first supercross was everything I expected if not more; it's my new favourite thing that's for sure!" Dobson commented. "It was a successful weekend and I achieved what I wanted to, which was top 10 on the first night, and then try and improve each round.
"Last night we came out with a seventh, so I'm pretty happy with how it all went. There were a couple of crashes and a lay down, but other than that I know the speed is there, and I know I do belong up the front of the pack battling with the top guys.‰Û
