DPH Motorsport Yamaha owner Dale Hocking is celebrating Kade Mosig’s shock breakthrough win this week, a just reward for the quality low-key Victorian team.

Hocking’s DPH program officially entered the sport in 2012 with Cheyne Boyd at the helm aboard a Honda in MX2, before last year the team fielded Sam Martin on board a Suzuki in MX1 with limited success in his rookie campaign.

A transfer to Yamaha for 2014 – the team’s third manufacturer switch in three seasons – saw the team add Mosig to the roster alongside Martin in the roster, resulting in the round six overall at Swan Hill on Sunday.

“Fantastic day, and fantastic effort from Kade,” Hocking said. “He just pulled it out of the hat today, he rode very solid, very consistent, really used his head the whole day so it was fantastic.

“Can’t ask for much more than to win overall. Amazing effort from Kade, our sponsors and everyone behind us. To be a privateer team, here beating all the factory teams, it’s pretty special.

“All the effort, time and money is all worth it. This is the first win for the team ever and we couldn’t be happier. For Sam, he just needs to get a good start, if he can get a good start, he will be up there too.

“We’re just so proud of what we have achieved here this weekend and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.”

Mosig now sits sixth in the championship standings, while Martin is 10th after scoring that same result at Swan Hill.
