Broomfield was set to join Victorian duo Cheyne Boyd and 27-year-old Lee Ellis who had been selected by Motorcycling Australia's Motocross Commission in the prestigious teams' event, which has been held every year since 1947. Gary Benn would manage the Australian operation.

It was US import Mike 'The Rock' Larocco riding for Team No Fear Honda who stole the limelight in the final of the Australian Supercross Championship at the Sydney Superdome on Saturday September 5, 2004.

It was smiles all round in the Team Motorex KTM camp with Jay Marmont managing a hard fought battle for second in the SX Open class but more rewarding was younger brother Ryan's return to racing after a bout of injury proved successful taking the win in the SX Lites.
