Todd Waters won the second round of the Australian 450 National Championship, but he didn’t actually win the motos. Waters went 5-1 and was beaten by Brit Billy Mackenzie’s 2-2 score…but in Australia they give 5 points to the rider who wins the Super Pole.

Meanwhile in the 250 class, Luke Clout won his first-ever Nationals, helped in some part by a flat tire for Josh Cachia, first lap crash by Luke Styke and blown engine Kade Mosig (all in moto one).  Styke would come back to win moto two and go 3-1 on the day, but Clout’s 1-2 was the decider. In Australia they allow 250 two-strokes to race against 250 four-strokes. Kale Makeham finished fourth overall on his KTM 250SX…and the world didn’t come to end.
