South Australian Junior MX State Champions Crowned At Monarto
South Australia has a string of new Junior State Motocross Champions following the ‰Û÷SA MX Grand Final‰Ûª event at Monarto on the weekend.

Close racing was produced under perfect weather conditions and an ideal track surface, with many of the points battles coming down to the wire and the final races of the season to determine who would stand on top of the podium.

Leading the 100 ‰ÛÒ 125cc 2 Stroke ‰ÛÒ 13 to Under 16 overall points coming into the final round, Travis Edwards delivered another strong performance at Monarto to come away with the top point score on the day following two victories from the three motos.

Edwards took the win in the first and third moto with Rick Ireland getting up for the win in the second moto. Ireland also finished second to Edwards in the first moto, however an error in the final race unfortunately brought him down the points order for the day.

The front runners were mixed across the day, building towards a close finish in the Championship points with Edwards taking the number one plate ahead of Cooper Sheidow and Nathan Walmsley in third, just two points ahead of Thomas Larwood in fourth, also narrowly ahead of Noah Coad who rounded out the top five.

Wil Carpenter powered to the 50cc Div 2 championship win with second place overall at the final round
In the 50cc Auto DIV 2 under 9 years it was Victorian Hudson Crothers dominated in his first appearance in the SA MX Championship for 2016, taking a win in all three motos for the 50cc Div 2 class, securing the round result over Wil Carpenter.

Entering the event, Carpenter was second in the Championship points, but with the result, managed to take the series victory.

The top three across the three motos were a mirror across the day with Crothers leading home Carpenter and Sam Oster. Cooper Bevan and Cambell Cadd were separated by just two points for fourth and fifth overall on the day, with the pair both having finished as high as fourth across the three motos.

Two wins from Saturday‰Ûªs three motos for Taj Gow-Smith was enough to help him secure the Championship victory
Two wins from Saturday‰Ûªs three motos for Taj Gow-Smith was enough to help him secure not only the day‰Ûªs win, but also the Championship victory in the 65cc class for riders aged 10-12.

Victorian Anthony Atanasovski made solid progress across the day, finishing third in the first moto, second in the second moto and the win in the final moto of the day, placing him in second for the day and third in the overall standings. A third place finish for the final round for Landen Panozzo secured him enough points to take second in the Championship behind Gow-Smith.

Both Jake Grubb and Charlie Baker finished fourth and fifth respectively across the three motos, a subsequent mirror of their days points also final Championship standings in the class.

Snow‰Ûªs closest rival, Patrick Martin ran second in the three motos, also taking second in the Championship standings, while two third place finishes for Brock Symons helped to earn him the final podium place for the day, just four points ahead of Lachlan Metcalf who was a further four points in front of Ripley Rowbotham, who‰Ûªs round points were enough to secure him third in the Championship behind Snow and Martin.

Taj Gow-Smith made it two round wins and two Championship victories at the Monarto event, picking up the win in the 85cc class for riders aged 9-12, in addition to his success in the 65cc category.

Gow-Smith once again had Victorian Anthony Atanasovski run as his closest competitor across the day with Atanasovski picking up second for the day and for the Championship. Jack McLean, Jake Grubb and Clay Burnett rounded out the top five for the final round, a mirror of the top five in the Championship at the conclusion of the event.

A clean sweep of victories in the three motos for Alex Larwood in the 85cc big wheel class for riders aged under 16 became enough to secure a comfortable victory for him in the Championship, subsequently also taking the round win.

Rory Hill finished second in all three races, helping to take second on the day ahead of Victorian Dominic Walker who worked his way up the field across the day to eventually take third in the final moto and third for the day in his first appearance in the series for 2016.

Cooper Sheidow finished third in the first two motos, however a broken chain at the start of the final moto prevented Sheidow from making a start with the remainder of the field.

Despite starting two laps down in the moto, the points amassed from the series up to Monarto by Cooper and the opening two moto results were enough to still secure him third overall for the Championship with Kai Newbold and Will Holmes rounding out the top five for the series overall.
