The final round of the South Australian Motocross Championships was held at the Renmark Motocross track this past weekend, with clear weather it was a great day for racing. With all the boys ready to go, the scene was set for a good day and a thrilling championship finale.
Thomas Larwood came into the final round with a small points lead in the 13-15 years 250cc division. Would the pressure get to him like it has in the past or would Thomas stand up and be counted? The first two moto's would see Thomas trail his rival in Travis Edwards from start to finish which meant only one thing, it was winner takes all in the final moto of the season.
These two riders have been so even this year you could throw a blanket over them most of the time.
The final moto saw Thomas in second and losing ground early on, then he started using a couple of different lines, they caught some lappers and things got real close. With two laps remaining in his final SAMX race as a junior, Thomas made a pass up the inside to take the lead. He then pulled a small gap and he went on to win the race and championship.
‰ÛÏI am so stoked. I didn't think that was going to happen today after the first two motos but I just gave it all I had in the last one and I was able to make it happen. My bike was great today and I‰Ûªm just so happy right now,‰Û
