The Yamalube Yamaha Racing Team produced one its one most consistent nights‰Ûª of supercross racing, with both riders finishing inside the top five at round two of the National championship in Adelaide.

With the team competing in both SX1 (450cc) and SX2 (250cc), it was a busy night of racing but the riders stood up when it mattered and are now both sitting inside the top five of their respective championships after round two.

Jay Wilson charged to a fourth place finish in the SX2 division despite not coming to terms with the tricky and challenging track. Wilson admits he wasn‰Ûªt at his best on Saturday night and rode a little conservatively but kept himself in the championship hunt with a mature performance.

Each time on the track saw the current champ make improvements to his lap times and he narrowly missed the podium after a gallant effort in the main event. He raced his way to third place at stages during the final but was forced to settle for fourth when the finish flag flew.

‰ÛÏLooking back, I just took too long to find my intensity in the afternoon sessions,‰Û

Still not back to 100% strength in his shoulder, Richie Evans had a night to remember with the sixth fastest time in SX1 qualifying, taking second in his heat race, sixth in Superpole and then a stunning fifth place finish in the main event. Photo: Aaryn Minerds.
It was a break out night for Richie Evans, who is contesting his first season in the SX1 division. Evans took a very respectable eighth place at the opening round in Brisbane just a week ago and now has improved that to a fifth place finish at the weekend in Adelaide.

Still not back to 100% strength in his shoulder, Evans had a night to remember with the sixth fastest time in qualifying, taking second in his heat race, sixth in Superpole and then a stunning fifth place finish in the main event and finishing ahead of many other fancied rivals.

Again, he had great starts and even ran as high as fourth for a lot of the main event before home town hero Brett Metcalfe made his way past later in the race.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm pretty happy with that,‰Û
