Josh Hill won round three of the Australian Supercross series.

Mt. Gambier’s Borderline Speedway played host to a thrilling weekend of Supercross action, which saw race favorites come to grief in both the 450 Pro and 250 Pro classes.  

American Josh Hill scored his first podium of the season, winning the 450 final ahead of Carlton Dry Honda rider Weston Peick and Campbell Mining Suzuki rider Jake Moss. Josh said, “It feels good to come out here and get the win.We worked really hard in the month break since Darwin to get the bike where it needed to be. My mechanic really went to town on the bike. I told him what I wanted and he made me a bike similar to what I have back in the states motor wise. I can’t thank him enough I was a lot more comfortable this weekend because I had confidence in the bike.”


Weston Peick rode to a solid second, help by the errors of the Moss brothers.

Fellow American Weston Peick was also pleased with the improvements made by the Carlton Dry Honda Racing team but said they weren’t quite there yet. Weston said,”I had a good night. I tried to stay as consistent as possible but the track really started to break up towards the main event. I think we have a few more changes to make before we can get up there on the number one spot on the podium. The championship has definitely tightened up with Moss boys going down, but consistency is going to be the key.”

Team Motul Pirelli Suzuki’s Matt Moss led Hill over the early laps of the 20-lap final before crashing heavily and dropping back through the order. Moss worked his way back to fifth and heads to Round 4 and 5 of the series at the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix with a four-point lead over his twin bother Jake.


Luke Styke leads the Australian 250 title chase and got a gift when Gavin Faith fell down on the last lap of the 250 Main.

In the 250 class Serco Yamaha’s Luke Styke extended his championship lead after being gifted the race win when Carlton Dry Honda Racing’s Gavin Faith washed out on the final lap of the 15-lap final. Styke said,”It’s not over until it’s over. I stuck in there and rode my own race. I made a few silly mistakes in the back half of the race and Gavin Faith was doing a really good job but made a mistake right at the end and I was there to capitalize.
