MXN – Wonthaggi Rundown

2 years ago

We’ve cut out the boring bits of every race team press release we’ve received and left you with the stuff you want to know. This is the Monster Energy MX Nationals run down from Round 3 at Wonthaggi.

  • Reigning champion, Jay Marmont, took another blow in his defence of his national title after finishing 7th with a 6-6-7. Remaining positive, Marmont says he’s uninjured and confident there’s a win around the corner.
  • Jay Marmont sits 42 points behind MX1 series leader and former teammate, Josh Coppins.
  • International star, Brad Anderson, took the race win after going 1-2-3 despite suffering arm pump in Race 2 and then crashing in Race 3 while battling with Lawson Bopping.
  • Anderson sits second in the champion, 20 points behind Josh Coppins.
  • Coppins, missed out on the podium and finished fourth with a 4-5-2 result. Thankfully, his nearest rival, Anderson, only put a four-point scratch in his 24-point lead.
  • Carlton Dry Honda’s Ford Dale went 2-2-1 to take the overall MX2 win, despite battling the flu all week.
  • After only three rounds, CDR Yamaha’s Lawson Bopping had his debut podium result, finishing third with a 2-3-6.
  • The CDR Yamaha team currently sits first and fifth in the championship, with Bopping only six points off third place contender, Todd Waters.
  • CDR Yamaha’s Team Manager, Craig Dack, says they’ll do further testing in preparation for the sands of WA when the MX Nats heads to Wanneroo on May 12.
  • Despite injury, Carlton Dry Honda’s Yarrive Konsky says Ben Townley is still an integral part of the team and will continue advising them as they progress through the series.
  • JDR KTM Factory Racing’s Josh Cachia took his first podium of the year in the MX2 class with a 1-4-7.
  • Cachia’s teammate, Ryan Marmont, had a disappointing day of racing after crashing in the final moto and being transported to Dandenong Hospital after suffering a concussion.
  • Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Dylan Peterson filled in for the injured Billy Mackenzie in the MX1 class and rode consistently in the three races to post 9th with a 9-10-9 result.
