Wade Hunter tops a strong Serco Yamaha performance at Wayville

Posted:

Wade Hunter led home a fast flowing Serco Yamaha freight train in the 15 lap SX2 final at round three of the Australian Supercross Championships, held at the Wayville Showgrounds in Adelaide.

Hunter bought his YZ250F home in third place, making it two podiums out of the three rounds contested and led a Serco threesome with Wilson Todd landing in fourth place and Jackson Richardson in fifth.

For Hunter it was another trip to the podium after a strong performance in the SX2 main event. Hunter was off to a strong start but was shuffled back a little in the commotion of the early laps. He regained his composure and passed his way back into third place behind race winner, Hayden Mellross and US rider, Gavin Faith.

Hunter now sits third in the championship points.

It was a welcome return to form for Wilson Todd after an injury riddled start to the supercross season. While still not 100%, Todd showed plenty of good signs on his way to a fourth place finish and will only improve as his fitness and race craft return.

Todd wasn‰Ûªt handed his fourth place finish and had to work for it and he moved his way forward. He still isn‰Ûªt satisfied with his result, but come away knowing that things are headed in the right direction and now sits in ninth place after only doing two of the three rounds so far.

‰ÛÏLast round was an eighth, this week it‰Ûªs a fourth and a lot closer to the front so it‰Ûªs important to keep moving forward and try to get some good results before the championship is over,‰Û

Last round winner, Jackson Richardson finished up in fifth place on the night after a fall early in the final had him outside the top 10 and struggling to move forward. Richardson fell but was quickly back on the bike and circulating but took a few laps to get back into his full race speed.

He worked his way inside the top 10 and then as the race went on and fitness became a factor, Richardson started to hit his straps and made several late race passes to get into fifth place and hold onto his second place in the championship, just one clear of team mate, Wade Hunter.

‰ÛÏThe positive from the night was that fifth was a pretty good result and reasonable damage control in the points considering I crashed in the final. We worked hard all day trying to get the best set up for the whoops as they were the difference out there and I felt I could improve through them.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm 11 points out of the championship lead so with three rounds to go, it‰Ûªs time to go after some race wins and put some pressure on,‰Û
