X Games gold medalist on track at the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
Multiple X Games medalist Cam Sinclair will return to his supercross roots this weekend, contesting the SX2 State Cup at rounds three and four of the Penrite Australian Supercross Championship at the Tissot Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
Sinclair, who is an X Games gold, silver and bronze medalist and holds the record for the world’s longest back flip, has not raced competitively in over 10 years.
The Victorian has been practicing with DPH Motorsport Yamaha rider Kade Mosig in the lead-up to this weekend’s double-header and said he is looking forward to making a return to racing.
“I am really looking forward to riding supercross again,” Sinclair said. “I started out racing but then steered in the direction of freestyle motocross so I kind of feel like I have come full circle.
“I have been practicing with Kade and having a good time with it again. My overall fitness is pretty good although I think I might struggle a little bit with race fitness, but that is all part of the fun.”
Sinclair, who is also preparing for the Speed and Style Australian Championship, is hoping this weekend’s races will help sharpen his speed ahead of the November event.
“Timing-wise it all fits into place nicely,” Sinclair continued. “I am competing in the Speed and Style Australian Championship in November so this event gives me the chance to work on the speed side of things.”
Rounds three and four of the Penrite Australian Supercross Championship will be held at the Tissot Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix on 17-19 October.
