Fullnoise.com.au's Look At The Major Australian and International Races and Events Being Held This Weekend

Ryan Dungey will lead the way into Texas this weekend.
Red Bull KTM's Ryan Dungey, the reigning 450SX Class Champion, has won four of the first six Main Events and has not finished worse than second. As a result, he brings a 26-point lead into the seventh race of the championship this Saturday, February 20, from Arlington, Texas' AT&T Stadium.

With 144 of a possible 150 points this season, Dungey has achieved the most success of his career at this point in the championship. It's the fastest start for a rider since Chad Reed won five of the first six races in 2008 to earn 147 of 150 points.

Chad Reed will be the sole Aussie in action in the SX class this week with Bopping ready to head home to Australia to get ready for the upcoming MX Nationals.

In the Western Regional 250SX Class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Joey Savatgy earned his second win in three races to grab a three-point lead heading into Arlington. The Western Regional Championship will reach its midseason break following Saturday night's race.

Hayden Mellross flying the Aussie flag as he comes of yet another solid outing at round 6 where he finished 13th in the main event after a small tip over early in the race.

2015/16 World SuperEnduro Championship Round 3 - Argentina:
Cody Webb carries a narrow two point lead into the third round of the world SuperEnduro championship.
American Cody Webb will lead a star studded line up into the third round of the 2015/16 Maxxis World SuperEnduro championships this weekend in Argentina.

After an action packed opening two rounds of the championship where no less than four riders claimed main event wins, Webb will head into the third round with a narrow two point lead over fellow KTM racer Jonny Walker after taking the overall round win at round two held in Germany.

American Rockstar Husqvarna pilot Colton Haaker who picked up a main event win in the second final at the opening round holds down third in the title standings with regining world champ Taddy Blazusiak who is yet to pick up a win so far in this series sitting in 4th.

FULLNOISE.COM.AU's Weekend Ahead
Something new to play with this weekend! KTM 50 Mini
We are planning on getting this weekend started early and sneaking out for a Friday afternoon ride aboard our Suzuki RM-Z450. Our last ride was exactly two weeks ago and we are itching to get back out on track.

Saturday will be spent doing a little macitence on the RM-Z in the morning and maybe another sneak ride Saturday afternoon!

For myself Sunday morning is shaping up to be a little exciting as we head to Gillman in SA to let my young fella have his first ride aboard his KTM 50SX Mini. After purchasing the bike from Kessner Motorcycles in Adelaide yesterday we are more than keen to see how KTM's little ripper rides and spending the foreseeable future enjoying this bike until Jayden outgrows it.

Between myself and Gaz we will be keeping a keen eye on all the racing posted above and as always keep the news updates coming over the course of the weekend as it happens and of course Sunday afternoon will be spent watching Reedy and Mellross take on the best SX riders in the world.

Dont forget to check in first thing Monday morning for Monday Motoboard where you will find all the weekends racing results from here in Australia and around the world in one easy to find location.
