2019 ASX Round 2 Recap – Adelaide

2 years ago | Words: Supercross Media | Photos: Foremost Media

After competing on the tightest circuit on the Australian Supercross calendar just one week ago in Brisbane, riders were greeted with a full spec, world championship-calibre circuit in Adelaide, and it was a pair of American’s on Penrite Honda’s who lit the candles in each class.

The duo of Justin Brayton and Mitchell Oldenburg topped the qualifying timesheets to open the days proceedings and would go on to win each of their respective heats, too. Superpole belonged to Dan Reardon in SX1 and Jacob Hayes in SX2 respectively, however, when it came to the night show, Brayton and Oldenburg were just too good.

Justin Brayton: “I’m stoked to go back to back, especially because now we’ve raced two really different tracks, and I’ve been strong on each along with my Penrite Honda machine. Also, to see Oldenburg grab the win in SX2 is just great for the team, and I think it speaks volumes for our entire Penrite Honda outfit.”

In the SX2, red plate holder Jacob Hayes was in the mix early, however, ended up having a sizeable crash in one of the rhythm lanes early and subsequently, DNF’d. As a result, Oldenburg breezed to a seven-second victory and moved his way into third in the standings – four points behind new leader Aaron Tanti.

Mitchell Oldenburg: “Tonight was awesome. We struggled a bit at round one; those indoor tracks are just so difficult and easy to make a mistake on, and that’s what we did. So to rebound here feels great, we’re four points off the championship, so I’m excited for the remainder of the championship.”

Rounding out the podium in SX2 was Raceline KTM Thors Josh Osby, and new red plate holder Aaron Tanti aboard his Serco Yamaha. In SX1, it was once again the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy teammates of Luke Clout and Dan Reardon taking up the runner up places, with hometown hero Brett Metcalfe in fourth.

The series now experiences a three-week break, before the home stretch where riders will compete in Wollongong (NSW) for round three, Auckland (NZ) round four, and closing the championship out inside Melbourne (VIC) for round five.

Tickets to Round 3 of the Championship in Wollongong on November 9 are selling fast via Ticketmaster and from as little as $30. Additionally, special VIP packages are available that include Supercross gift packs, special access to watch afternoon practice and qualifying plus the best seats in the venue and much more.
