Gaisford, Moore, Adams and Porter Wrap Up 2016 WAMX State Championships In Byford Thriller

 

The anticipation, excitement and year’s best racing was left to the final round of the Make Smoking History WAMX Senior State Championship.  After the culmination of the outstanding and tightly contested Junior series on Saturday, day two of the massive Junior and Senior double header concluded as a roaring success at the LWMCC home track at Hendley Park, Byford on Sunday September 18th when the state’s Senior Championship riders were left to fight it out in the title chase in the last three motos of the year, and it was absolutely thrilling, across the day.

Support Classes

Again a lack of numbers had the once strong Veteran class mixed with the Clubman All Powers Challenge.  There would be a no scored result for the vets as numbers did not constitute a class.  Those vets who did line would battle with the clubman class with John Blincow, Wayne Whincup, Corey Ablett, Joshua Hurley, Shaun Roser, Trevor Unstead and Nick Stone trading places.

Round 6 Results:

1 611 JOHN BLINCOW 99
2 370 WAYNE WHINCUP 98
3 434 COREY ABLETT 88
4 723 JOSHUA HURLEY 85
5 154 SHAUN ROSER 79

 

Dion Cobbin secured the opening and final moto wins of the day in the MX2 Repecharge to take the top step of the podium with Thomas Leeson picking up second for the day and Braydon Baynes  third overall.  Brandon Campbell, John Warden, and Sheldon Gill pulled consistent results, and Matthew Marson was in early contention before a mechanical DNF in moto 2 cost him a possible podium appearance.

Round 6 Results:

1 532 DION COBBIN 96
2 572 THOMAS LEESON 89
3 498 BRAYDON BAYNES 87
4 232 BRANDON CAMPBELL 82
5 558 JOHN WARDEN 77

 

Championship Classes

 

Women’s Class

Jessica Moore wrapped up the Women’s Championship with a faultless display recording the fastest qualifying time and the clean sweep (1-1-1) of the day.  Jess Moore was never headed recording a perfect scorecard across each round contested for the series, and the battle for the podium was played out behind the newly crowned Australian and WA Women’s Champion.

2015 Champion Chelsea Blakers fought to the end, finishing on a countback with equal points with Lily Kent to secure second for the day ahead of Kent, whose results would see her runner up to Moore for the season and Blakers securing third in the series standings.  The hard charging Hannah Bagnall and sister Megan put plenty of pressure on the top three placings not only across the day but across the whole season and the 26 ladies who contested the four round series this year were brilliant.

Round 6 Results:

1 86 JESSICA MOORE 105
2 539 CHELSEA BLAKERS 90

Quad Class

Overseas racing duties for defending champion Chris Bosnakis, and also for series leader Luke Gaisford had both riders pumped up for the final round.  Bosnakis took a clean sweep of the round (1-1-1), and was also the fastest qualifier. Gaisford’s results (2-2-2) had him secure his third WAMX State Championship and the second step for the overall results with the hard charging and exciting Michael Murphy joining them on the podium for third place.

Tyron Robertson would finish second in the standings behind Gaisford with Luke Ovens recording strong season results for third in the year’s tally.  With 27 Quads racing this season, and standouts such as Aussie Women’s Champ Jemma Merrylees securing Northern Territory and South Australian State Titles, both Gaisford and Bosnakis racing internationally and Michael Harcourt recording his 150th moto race start; it has been another successful season for the Quad Championship, ensuring the WA continent heading the Nationals in Victoria will be sure to return with the victory spoils.

MX2 Class

It was epic, it was exciting, it was the best racing round of the series, and that is a big call.  Moto, after moto the MX2 class has been a Cracker Jack machine, lightening starts,  winner’s unpredictable, multiple lead changes, bar scraping, block passes, bar to bar racing action, thrills, spills, controversy,  mechanical issue, and the MX2 class has provided the season’s excitement machine.

The contenders lined up, all previous champions in this class in their own right -Josh Adams, David Birch, Dylan Heard- all outstanding and with Mitch Taylor and Jake Fewster jumping on board the MX2 championship, round 6 went down to the absolute wire.

David Birch (1-0-1) would signal his intentions early securing the opening moto win from Josh Adams and Dylan Heard before mechanical DNF would end his podium chances and possible championship aspirations.  Yet no-one could deny the intensity from defending champion Dylan Heard who rode his heart out to finish on the second step of the podium (3-2-2), or the never give in determination from Josh Adams who would record the second moto win to take the top step of the podium by a mere point from Heard to wrap up the round and the 2016 Title. Jake Fewster would join them on the podium recording third for the day.

MX 1 Class

A day of full gates in the MX1 class, and for the very first time this season, defending champion and series leader Dean Porter did not podium in the MX1 class.  Mitch Taylor had his starts dialled in nicely and would take the round win (1-3-1) from Michael Mahon second and Robbo Lovett finishing third for the day.  Taking a seemingly conservative approach, Porter did what he needed to tally the points to secure the 2016 Championship title, from Robbo Lovett who would finish second for the series and Mitch Taylor third for 2016.

The Lightweight Motorcycle Club pulled off a massive double header, with a prime track, and the weather on par, it was a fitting finish to another nail biting state championships season.

The six clubs, volunteers and officials made this year’s championship another highlight, yet we must draw credit to the riders and families who have contested and supported this year’s series, through the highs and lows, this year is surely one of the best in recent times.

The Champions will be officially crowned in WA Motocross’s Night of Nights on Saturday November 5th.

WA Champions and Australian Champions – the WAMX series has continued to build the foundations for our riders to seize their opportunities.

It has been a massive year of highest of highs and lowest of lows for many riders, some facing injury, mechanical issues and some struggling to find the finances to fund their racing.  It is the time of the year that excites all motocross fans,  the final Make Smoking History WAMX Senior State Championship will roar into its last round of season 2016 at Hendley Park, Byford on Sunday September 18th.

Jess Moore

Women Class

Coming into this final round with a massive point lead and plenty of confidence is newly crowned Australian Women’s MX Champion, and multiple WA champ Jess Moore.  For the first time a WA rider will bring the Australian number one plate back to Western Australia, and Moore will be keen to add another WA plate to her growing trophy cabinet.

Lily Kent sits in second in the championship only 8 points shy of defending champion WA Women’s Champion Chelsea Blakers.  Both girls are keen to podium at this round, and in fact all of the top five girls recently competed at the Coolum round and will carry some new found speed heading into this final round at Byford.

Series leader Luke Gaisford has been racing overseas and carries a 44 point lead into the final round at Byford from second placed Tyron Robertson.  With this round featuring the long awaited return to WA racing of defending champion Chris Bosnakis after a successful sojourn in the USA, the series may go down to the wire for the top three place getters in the championship standings

Across the season we have seen mixed results and points collected from Michael Harcourt, Blake Croonen, Michael Murphy, Luke Ovens,  Daniel Soltoggio, Adam Filbey and Luke Capocreco it all comes down to this final round and a champion will be crowned at Byford!

MX2 Class

It has been some of the greatest moto battles we have witnessed in recent years, the exciting MX 2 class have delivered at every race this season. Josh Adams, David Birch and Dylan Heard have been outstanding and with Mitch Taylor jumping on board the MX2 championship for round 5 it was the best round thus far of season 2016.

Multiple WA, MX2 Champ Josh Adams is the series leader by only 33 points, from 2011 champion David Birch; with defending champion Dylan Heard holding third in the championship.  The danger man for the contenders is fourth placed Jake Fewster, who could cause a stir with some strong results, thus placing the championship in the balance.  Will it come down to the final moto of the day to decide the 2016 MX2 Championships? This final round will be another MX2 show-stopper.

Dean Porter

wamx_seniors_rnd5_southern_cross_14-08-2016-193-2

MX 1 Class

Series leader and defending MX1 Champion Dean Porter holds a 28 point lead from second placed in the series Robbo Lovett and Mitch Taylor who holds down third in the standings in the MX1 class.  The results at Southern Cross for round five, had Charlie Creech, who was consistently holding third for the season, had his season came to an injury forced end.  The results have Michael Mahon and Craig Bolton fourth and fifth in the championships.  Porter has remained super consistent sweeping the last three rounds with maximum points, which holds him in fine form heading into this last round at Byford.  Both Lovett and Taylor have the opportunity to dial in their starts and make the most of their opportunities to stem the momentum of the confident and in form Porter.  Yet with another 30 riders all looking to do well, plus the hard charging Chris Ruttico, Liam Whisler, Ryan Scarlett, Blair Outram, Julian Cutajar and Oliver James, as we have seen this year anything and everything is possible.  With Porter hinting that this could be his last season, there has never been a better time to head to Byford and cheer on the defending MX1 Champion, or perhaps we may see another rider crowned champion for 2016?

The penultimate 5th Make Smoking History WAMX Senior State Championship ripped into the sleepy historic goldfields town of Southern Cross on Sunday August 14th, with the championship series looking for a tight and sensational end next month for the final round.  Riders awoke with a chilly start to the morning, but a day run under blue skies and sunshine and a wind that kept things cool and allowed one of the dustier state rounds that we have had for quite a while.

No amount of water could keep the dust at bay which also ensured a slippery and skatey track, with riders searching for grip.  Again as has been the series standard, some championships are wrapped up in all but name, while others will be determined at the final round 6 at Byford next month.

Support Classes

MX2 Repechage

The combination of only three Veterans who weren’t scored in with the MX 2 repecharge class would see Alex Bates secure the first moto win and then Teleisha Outram in terrific form securing the final two motos to take the top step pf the podium with Liam Hitchcock second and Bates wrapping up third for the day.  Tom Varley, Jarrad Thompson, Cameron McDonald. Callan Johnson and James Elford were all searching for grip and clear vision across the day with the three vets, Trevor Unstead, Daniel Woodman and Anthony Fiaschi hoping for more riders at the next event to ensure there is a class.

Clubman All Powers

The local riders were out in force to the cheers of the crowd and Luke Kitto would take the win ahead of Travis Tuck and stalwart in this class this season, Corey Ablett picking up third for the day.  Jaxson Turner, Sam Delacy, Lily Kent, Cody Hunt and Brandon Campbell would swap places across the day with Luke Gaske, Darren Boulton, Daniel James, Harrison Smith, Tayla Cryne, Brock Fiaschi, Ben Bates, Che Ebert, Tess Jacobs and Matthew Walker.

 

Quad Class

Series leader Luke Gaisford stood atop the podium (1-1-1) but worked hard for his three wins.  Tangled up in two starts, Gaisford would work his way through the field to capture the wins, with Tyron Robertson second overall and Michael Harcourt joining them on the box for third for the day.

Visibility issues with dust would cause moments for all riders with Blake Croonen putting in solid motos and both Michael Murphy and Luke Ovens capturing some brilliant starts for the day.  Daniel Soltoggio, Adam Filbey and Luke Capocreco would all record mixed results, yet no-one came close to stopping the Gaisford freight train.  As the series leader with the red plate, Gaisford now goes into the last round with a 44 point lead over second placed Tyron Robertson.  With the rumoured return to WA racing of defending champion Chris Bosnakis after a successful sojourn in the USA, the series may go down to the wire for the top three place getters in the championship standings

MX2 Class

They have delivered a total so far of 15 absolute crack races, and the Southern Cross round was no exception.  Josh Adams, David Birch and Dylan Heard have been outstanding and with Mitch Taylor jumping on board the MX2 championship for round 5 it was the best round so far.  Birch would take out the first moto a bike length from Josh Adams with the tables turned in the six lap sprint for the second moto with Adams for the win and Birch for second.

Mitch Taylor would secure the final moto of the day and when both Birch and Adams were in the attack for second place, Adams would tangle with Birch’s rear wheel coming off in turn two.  Unable to restart his bike and resorting in some unusual yet effective trackside mechanics, Adams fired the bike back to life but could manage to pick up ten points for the race.  By day’s end David Birch would take the round win from Mitch Taylor and defending champion Dylan Heard securing third overall.  Finishing on equal points and fifth for the day behind Kenlon Youl, Adams retains the red plate as the series leader by now only 33 points from Birch, making the final round next month a show-stopper.

MX 1 Class

Again standing atop the podium and the red plate holder with a 28 point lead is defending Champion Dean Porter.  He took a clean sweep for his third consecutive top of the box performance in the last three rounds. Robbo Lovett would try his heart out, but it was Mitch Taylor (2-3-3) who would stand on the second step of the podium with Lovett third for the day.

The MX1 class was as lightning fast as predicted with fourth placed Craig Bolton back in strong contention keeping out Michael Mahon who would finish in fifth.  Southern Cross brought out the best in the riders all vying for points and Chris Ruttico, Liam Whisler, Blair Outram, Julian Cutajar and Oliver James all recording strong, solid performances across the day.  Coming into this round in podium regular Charlie Creech was on fire; however in qualifying he suffered a nasty crash which ended his day before it even started.  Despite not racing this round, he now sits in sixth in the championship, and it is hoped he will be clear to race in the final round next month.

It will be a return to hard-packed track surfaces for the remaining rounds in the 2016 Western Australian Motocross Championship Series.  With possibly the smallest membership base of any mx club in Australia, the Southern Cross Motorcycle Club plays host to the penultimate 5th Make Smoking History WAMX Senior State Championship, on Sunday August the 14th.

Located over 370 kilometres east of Perth the Southern Cross Club is renowned for hosting the richest event on the calendar with the King of the Cross motocross race.  This weekend the big guns of the elite classes and support racers head into the historic goldfields town to do battle in the championship series.

 

Quad Class

With mixed results from the previous round, Luke Gaisford maintains the red plate as the series leader.  The point’s gap has narrowed with the lead now only 26 points between Gaisford and second placed Tyron Robertson.  Gaisford is champing at the bit to turn the soils at Southern Cross and looking for a clean sweep of round five to sew up the series.  As has been the case this year, no results can be guaranteed, with strong and consistent rides from Luke Ovens, Michael Murphy, Daniel Soltoggio and Luke Capocreco.  This penultimate round will be as actioned packed as ever with the rumoured return to WA of defending champion Chris Bosnakis for the final round adding to the excitement.

Defending champion Dylan heard holds down third from Jack Perkusich and Jake Fewster has secured round wins to sit in 5th positon in the championships.

This season has seen the rise of  Luke Few, Brody Cassidy, John Darroch and Jonathan Hartley and Southern Cross will offer three of the best MX2 races to add to the best racing in this class in many years.  You do not want to miss a second of the action trackside.

It is the elite class, and the cream has risen to the top in the premiere class of the MX1.  It doesn’t get any tighter in the title chase with Porter now holding the red plate for the first time this year as the series leader by 13 points splitting the MX1 lead of Robbo Lovett from defending champ Dean Porter.  Both Charlie Creech and Mitch Taylor have both shared the podium this year with Creech now holding third place in the standings from Taylor and Michael Mahon rounding out fifth place.

Craig Bolton, Julian Cutajar, Oliver Smith, Chris Ruttico and Ryan Scarlett sit inside the top ten and will be looking to gain any possible advantage to secure points and perhaps the elusive podium result for round 5.

As you all know we dedicated our round 4 Seniors to NBCF, and the venue and competitors were awash in pink in respect to all those that have or are fighting this battle.

 

Bunbury Mcc did a fabulous effort of raising $500 for the cause to help with donating all camping fees collected and also putting there hands into the club pockets to help this worthy cause.

 

Congratulations Bunbury MCC.

It is a formidable mixture, heavy rain, more heavy rain, undulating terrain and dirt, the mixture resulted in slush, mud and more mud for the 4th Round of the Make Smoking History WAMX Junior State Championships, held in extreme conditions in the Perth hills at Chidlow on Sunday July 31st.

 

 

With the weather and track conditions, came the scramble for points in the championships, and this round was a smorgasboard of surprise results, which have shaken up the series standings, making the next two rounds absolutely crucial for competitors.

It was a very tough and long day at Chidlow, as mother nature shook up the round’s racing and also the results of many riders.  It proves that consistency is the key, and results can never be certain, as the sport continues to throw up opportunities of soaring high’s and crushing lows.

The next exciting instalment the Make Smoking History WAMX Junior State Championships, round 5, heads to the sands of Wanneroo Junior’s on August 28th.
