Aaron Tanti and Dylan Wills took the round 7 and 8 wins in the MX2 class of the Pirelli MX Nationals at Ranch MX, NSW, last weekend, while Yamaha's Wilson Todd maintained his championship lead with a pair of podiums.

Tanti took his second win of the year via a 3-2 result in round 7 which was run over both days.

‰ÛÏIt was a different format this weekend, but I was pretty happy with how I went,‰Û

Round 8, which was run over two 15 minute motos on Sunday afternoon, was won by Dylan Wills. Wills scored an equal 67 points with Todd and was awarded the round overall on account of his better second moto result. Both riders sharing a win and a second.

"Kade's been such a huge influence on my riding this year, so it was tough sitting in the truck without him there this weekend, but to the team's credit, they knuckled down, focused on the job in front of us and really had my back all weekend," Wills said referreing to suspended DPH Motorsport team-mate Kade Mosig.

"I'm so happy to have finally gotten my first overall win, and glad I could give the guys some good news. I felt really good on the bike coming into the weekend and my speed was there in round seven, so when I finally got stronger starts in the last two races, I was battling for the lead rather than passing to get to the front. With two rounds to go, this is where I want to be, so I'll be working even harder to stay here."

Wilson Todd's second place saw him maintain a solid lead in the MX2 standing with two rounds to go.

‰ÛÏIt was a lively weekend with the format changes, the track and also being a double header but I managed to get through it pretty well and was able to get a few extra points in the championship, so I can‰Ûªt complain too much,‰Û
