National Pump Monster Energy Kawasaki enjoyed another successful round of the 2014 Monster Energy MX Nationals at Swan Hill, Victoria with Jake Moss winning Superpole on his KX450F and going on to take a moto win.
Both Jake Moss and Adam Monea made Superpole at Swan Hill to keep their streak alive (having made Superpole at every round of the series so far). Jake Moss clocked the fastest lap time to win Superpole and $500 prize money while Adam Monea took 4th.
The Superpole win was an outstanding start to round 6 for Jake Moss. Looking to capitalise on his P1 qualification in moto 1, Moss got off to a good start and quickly found 4th place. Unfortunately he laid his bike down in mud on lap 11 which put him back to 7th. Another small get-off on the following lap meant he could only salvage an 11th place finish. The tables were turned in moto 2 however.
Moss rode a phenomenal race to pass Kirk Gibbs for 2nd place and then pass his brother Matt to take the moto win. Jake Moss's 11-1 results were good enough for 4th place overall for the round and 3rd place in the championship, just 45 points shy of the leader with another 4 rounds of racing to go.
"A Superpole win and a moto win is a lot to take away from the round but I'm obviously still disappointed with that 1st moto result."Moss stated. "At Wanneroo I was the fastest on track and I was the fastest again this round on a track I don't really like so that is a real confidence builder.
"I believe I'm going to be on top at the last 4 rounds. I just have to get this first race crash monkey off my back. It's happened all year but I'll get it done.
"I can still win the championship. I feel like I'm going to win. I just need to go out there and put the National Pump Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450F on top."
