Round two of the 2014 Monster Energy MX Nationals heads to Appin in New South Wales this Sunday. Matt Moss, Kayne Lamont and Jed Beaton will all be carrying the red championship leaders red plates in their respective classes.

The opening round of the season two weeks ago was a ripper with 7 different riders posting race wins across the nine motos in the three classes. Round two will see a change up of format with the MX1 and MX2 classes racing 2 X 30 minute plus one lap races, while the MXD will race 2 x 20 minute motos.

Joining the three senior classes this weekend will be the junior two stroke riders in the Yamaha Junior cup.

Below are some of the important links for this weekend.

The Fifteenth round of the 2014 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship heads to Seattle with Monster Energy Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto a outside chance of wrapping up an amazing fourth straight championship.

Villopoto heads into his home round in Seattle with a 45 point lead over his nearest rival James Steward with Ryan Dungey a further point back. A win with Villopoto with both his closest rivals finishing off the podium this weekend will be enough to see Villopoto take the title.

In the 250SX Division, the competition returns to the West Coast with Jason Anderson holding the points lead over Cole Seeley as the West Coast riders head into their penultimate race of the season.

Practice and Qualifying can be streamed live on Sunday Morning in Australia by CLICKING HERE and can be view on ESPN on the FOXTEL Network at 11.30am AEDT.

The 2014 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis makes a stop in Union, S.C. this weekend, April 12 and 13, for Round 4 of the 13-race AMA National Championship series.

While the first three rounds have been unpredictable in terms of weather and results, the one constant has been the tightly contested championship battle between Factory FMF/KTM's Charlie Mullins and Kailub Russell.

Mullins holds a three-point advantage over his teammate in the overall standings but it's the reigning champ Russell who has a two-race win streak behind him heading into Sunday's VP Racing Fuels Big Buck GNCC.

FULLNOSIE.COM.AU's Weekend Ahead
It is finally time to hit the MX race track for the first time in 2014 - (Credit: Jessica Motz
Bit of a mixed weekend for us here at Fullnoise, due to some prior work commitments this Saturday and a promise to my wife that I would be home for both here Birthday (Monday) and our wedding anniversary later this year for the first time in four years (I have been away covering events on both days for the past 4 years at least!) we will be absent from the MX Nationals this weekend.

We must give a big shout out to Grant Reynolds from 56 Clix for helping us out this weekend as he heads to Appin to gather up some shots for us. cheers Grant hopefully it stays dry out there for you.

Being home this Sunday does have one big advantage, as we drag the our KTM 350 SX-F out of the shed for our first Motocross race for 2014, with a local clubday at Gillman in South Australia. It will be a quick dash home as soon as racing is over to start compiling all the results from here in a Australia and from around the world ready for Monday Motoboard.

It is going to be a HUGE weekend of racing as you can see above, with international motocross, enduro, supercross and trials events on across the globe there is sure to be something dirt related to keep you occupied this weekend.

THAT's A WRAP

Then check the front page of the Fullnoise.com.au site on Monday for our MONDAY MOTOBOARD Presented by TM Racing Australia for a full list of results from all racing over the weekend.
