JOSH HANSEN WINS SUPERCROSS AT CARISBROOK STADIUM IN DUNEDIN, NEW ZEALAND

Wet and treacherous conditions prevailed at round five of the Monster Energy Super X event in Dunedin tonight, allowing Monster Energy Kawasaki / Pro Circuit’s Josh Hansen, to demonstrate his skill on the slippery track to win both motos in the Double Header final.

Josh Hansen was the only rider to stay relatively clean as he claimed both holeshots and never looked back in the two 12-lap final races, pushing him further ahead of Yamaha’s Jay Marmont in the overall championship standings.

KTM’s Tye Simmonds rode the best he has all season to claim second in the first moto and third in the second after a great battle with Rockstar Motul Suzuki’s Jake Moss.

Moss made a great pass on Simmonds on the final corner of the second race to pip Simmonds at the post. Moss and Simmonds tied on round points with Moss claiming second on a count back.

Josh Hansen said, “That was a scary one, especially with points. It was super wet, very muddy and a lot of lappers. Starts were really important and I had to be consistent and smart out there. It’s great to have the support I have behind me. Big thanks to everyone who has made it possible to be here and Troy Carroll from the Kawasaki Racing Team for all his help. This series is really cool and has been a lot of fun.”

Jake Moss said, “I just pushed hard the whole race and finally got the pass to pull it off. Thanks to all of my family and sponsors for all of their ongoing support.”

Tye Simmonds said, “It was a tough night, but it was good fun racing in the mud. It doesn’t rain much in Bourke so overall it was an awesome night. I really want to thank Racesafe for helping me out.”

THE 250 CLASS

The first of two 8-lap races in the Double Header final for the 250 class was a nail biter with Matt Moss and Steven Clarke engaging in a back and forth battle for the lead, with Clarke the eventual winner after overtaking Moss on the second last corner. Championship leader P.J. Larsen was third.  

Moss had a dominant win in the second final with Larsen second and Kawasaki’s Cody Mackie third.

P.J. Larsen still leads the championship, but is only four points ahead of Moss and KTM’s Ryan Marmont is third.
