Australia‰Ûªs top dirt bike racers and a star studded line-up of international heavy hitters descended on Auckland, New Zealand, for the S-X Open event staged on Saturday night (November 16) upon the expansive infield of Mount Smart Stadium, home of the New Zealand Warriors rugby league team.

The event, which played out as round four of the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship and the opening installment of the two-event FIM Oceania Supercross Championship, drew a huge crowd of Kiwi fans who all enjoyed a massive night of international supercross competition.

Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing team riders Kyle Webster and Rhys Budd made the trans-Tasman trek to continue their Australian Supercross Championship campaign in the hotly contested SX2 division.

Runner-up in the MX2 class of this year‰Ûªs Australian MX Nationals, Kyle Webster was keen to boost his current standing in the SX2 championship standings, and took to the Auckland track with gusto.

‰ÛÏQualifying in the afternoon was really good and I posted second fastest time, just 0.02 seconds behind Chris Blose (Penrite Honda Racing),‰Û
