A mid-pack start for Jay Marmont in the opening moto at Hervey Bay saw him riding hard to work his way up to 4th. But the difficult and bumpy sand track took its toll on the current Australian Supercross champion and he eventually finished in 8th place. It was much of the same in the second race and Marmont finished in 9th. Marmont’s 8-9 results left him in 9th overall for the round.
An optimistic Jay Marmont say’s, “It was a positive weekend for me as I rebuild. It was hard to push forward on that track after mediocre starts so I’m not happy with my positions but I’m riding well and I wasn’t overtaken in that second moto. I’m looking forward to the next few rounds. The hard-pack Swan Hill track will suit me then we have a home race in Toowoomba before wrapping up in Coolum. Then bring on the Supercross!”
Adam Monea was unfortunate to miss out on Superpole, qualifying in 6th place. He came out firing in moto 1 and quickly settled into 5th place however he collided with another rider. Some more offs while he was trying to fight his way back into the race left Adam Monea in 14th place for the moto. A less than perfect start in moto 2 saw Monea at the back of the pack after the start. However he rode strong to claw his way back to 10th place. His 14-10 results gave him 11th overall for the day.
Adam Monea say’s, “Unfortunately I wasn’t at my best today and it cost me. I know I can do better than what I did but it is what it is and we’ll carry on with the championship. I got my bad round out of the way and now I’m looking forward to 3 more good rounds.”
