Australia’s motocross riding twins and Rockstar Motul Suzuki team mates, Jake and Matt Moss, both finished first in their respective classes at the penultimate round of the Monster Energy Supercross series in Parramatta tonight. Jake took out a drama filled 450 final whilst Matt was impressive all night for a dominant win in the 250 class. The Quad challenge format featured in the Open class with each race having a different winner.


Josh Hansen claimed the first of the four, six-lap races in a dominant performance leaving Scotland’s Billy Mackenzie in his first- ever Super X and Supercross race in second and Jay Marmont third.
In the second moto Dan McCoy and Jay Marmont were neck-and-neck for the whole race after Hansen got stuck back in the pack at the start. McCoy managed to hold on for the win with Marmont second and Daniel Reardon in third. Hansen finished eighth with a bent gear shift that forced him to race in one gear for the entire race.
Billy Mackenzie took the third holeshot of the night with Josh Hansen close behind and Jake Moss third. The two Kawasaki riders were neck and neck in the final lap, but the Scot held off Hansen for the win. Moss held on for third.

Mackenzie claimed the final holeshot of the night and Hansen once again got stuck back in the pack. Mackenzie, Marmont and Moss were all within a bike length of one another up front for most of the race, until Marmont took a dive in the sand section. On the same lap Mackenzie went off the side of the track allowing Moss to pass. Mackenzie and Marmont swapped second and third places numerous times throughout the race, but it was Moss who grabbed the win with Mackenzie second and Marmont third.

Moss was first overall on a count back with Mackenzie second and Marmont third. Jake Moss said, “It was so awesome to get the win tonight especially with Matt winning too. I was riding really tight all night, but everything just came together for me in the final.”

Billy Mackenzie said, “I am really happy with my result tonight and I did so much better than I ever could have expected. I have been training supercross for a month, but the last couple of weeks have been tough after the accident with Harley Quinlan. I was with him when it happened so riding has been hard. I had some really good starts tonight which were really important on this track because it was hard to pass.”

Jay Marmont said, “It’s always good to be on the podium, but I am disappointed I went down in the sand in the last race. I was leading overall before that and in a good position for the win, but at least I finished ahead of Hansen. Mossy has been gaining points on me the last couple of rounds so I really need some wins in Brisbane.”

This weekend’s race was Mike Alessi’s final appearance in Australia. He had another forgettable night with a 16-7-8-DNF result because of bad luck and crashes. Mike says that he is returning to the USA to prepare to the AMA Supercross series. Under Alessi’s KTM contract, he has the right to race or not race the Supercross series. It looks as though Mike has decided to race it.
