JDR Motorex KTM’s Matt Moss says it was a good feeling to return to the top step of the podium last Saturday night at Maitland Oval during the penultimate round of Monster Energy Super X, now eying a third title.

The two-time series champion now sits in the box seat for the title ahead of next weekend’s season finale, holding a 22-point lead after scoring 2-2-1 results in the Hunter Valley aboard his 250 SX-F.

“This weekend went great for me from start to finish,” 23-year-old Moss explained. “I felt really good on my bike and I knew in my head that I would have a good night.

“I’m stoked to get the win after a disappointing round last weekend, so from here I need to play it smart and try to wrap it up.”

Maitland wasn’t so kind to Moss’ teammate and last week’s winner Brenden Harrison, the Queenslander crashing out of the third final after battling to 8-13 results in the first two.

Harrison now sits third in the series, just one point shy of second heading into his home round.

The series will conclude this weekend in Ipswich, Queensland.
