It was a brilliant weekend for motocross fans in the Western Australian Goldfields town of Kalgoorlie, which hosted the second round of the 2014 Healthways-Smarter Than Smoking WAMX State Motocross Championships.
Louis Calvin answered his critics in the best possible way as the defending WAMX Pro Open/MX1 champion took three moto wins to take the overall round results at Kalgoorlie on Easter Sunday.
In the Pro Lites/MX2 it was Kyle Webster who carried some of his best form to date into this second round, and made some bold statements in his racing along the way, taking the round win with his convincing (1-3-1) results.
Louis Calvin on the Berrysweet/Mandurah City KTM was back to his scintillating best form, leading each of the three motos from start to finish, although at times challenged by the quick-fire Kyle Webster who came into the round as the series leader on the Wellard/BRM/Cullys Yamaha.
Webster showed all that he still had plenty in the tank despite riding the Pro Open/Pro Lite double; he picked up second overall for the day. Ray Moore Motorcycles KTM mounted Craig Bolton picked up three consistent third places to take the third step of the podium for the day.
Whilst there were further battles from riders Charlie Creech, Paul Humbertson, Ash Whisler, Steve Heilers Reece Colgan, Mitch Taylor, Tim Bell and Mat Johns, they were never able to peg back the lead riders, despite giving it there all in warm and dry conditions.
In the Pro Lites, Kyle Webster took the class win on the top step of the podium with Bunbury KTM mounted Jayden Rykers picking up second overall and maintaining the red plate as the series leader as a result of his scorecard (2-2-2). Defending champ Josh Adams on the Herb Watson Racing KTM was third for the day with a scorecard of (4-1-5). David Birch fought hard for the day with Charlie Creech, Jake Pruiti, Robbo Lovett, Shaun Cornick, Dylan Sexton and Brody Fewster.
In the Veterans Championship, the pro Vets round win went to Scott Petricevich, the defending champion and series leader from Paul Smithson and Trevor Unstead, whilst the Clubman Vets class was taken out by Troy Deer, from Peter Freight and Cliff Herbert in third place.
The Quad Championship was dominated by Chris Bosnakis, who was never challenged nor headed in his three motos, taking the round win, and continuing his championship lead in the series. Matt Robbins finished second with Shaun Woodhead in third. Clubman Quad results for round 2 went to Johnathon Mosby from Jemma Merrylees and Jeff Hogan.
Ryan Scarlett maintains the series lead in the Intermediate Lites taking the round win from Mario Dercole and Kenlon Youl, whilst Clubman Lites had three different winners with Jonny Rowe (1-5-2), Kaleb Richdale (2-1-7) and Ty Crittle battling for race wins with Hayden Scoby-Smith, Josh Andrews and Lewis Osborne fighting for top five finishes.
In the Clubman Opens it was again Brody Grothues who swept the field as was the case at Round 1, another dominate performance for the lead in the championship series, with second overall Jesse Line, third placed Dylan Fernihough and some bar to bar racing from Damien O’Brien and Brodie Harnett.
The Intermediate Open class was won by Dylan Young, by a mere point from Curtis DeJong and Dexter Jones third for the day. The final race was re run after a red flag incident which had Grant Buchan crashing heavily. Fellow rider Barrie Baynes, stopped his own racing to run to Buchan’s aid, and displayed an unselfish act of great sportsmanship to assist a fellow rider. Jake Konsolis, Craig Divitini and Nathaniel keen put in some great motos, however it would Dylan young’s day on the top step of the podium.
