CDR Yamaha duo Kade Mosig and Daniel Reardon scored an MX1 win apiece at Appin’s second round of the 2015 MX Nationals today in New South Wales.

The overall went to Mosig, his second since Swan Hill last season, as the overall podium featured the same three riders as Horsham – Mosig, Kirk Gibbs and Luke Styke – a fortnight ago.

A dramatic start to the opening premier class moto saw reigning number one plate holder Matt Moss go down in the first turn, out of the race and transported to hospital for scans after undergoing treatment from Suzuki RACESAFE.

The win eventually went to Mosig in another strong showing for CDR, finishing near four seconds ahead of Styke and Gibbs, a further two seconds back.

Gibbs put in an exceptional performance to come from the rear of the field for third after he too was caught up in the first turn incident.

Fourth was teenager Jesse Dobson on his Husqvarna, while longtime leader Lawson Bopping was forced to settle for fifth at the close of the moto.

Completing the top 10 were Dan Reardon as another to be involved in the turn one melee, Dylan Long, Adam Monea, Cody Cooper and Kale Makeham, who was also a fast starter.

The second MX1 moto was all Reardon at the front, dominating from the outset to hold Gibbs at bay for his first race win upon return to racing.

Behind Reardon and Gibbs was the ever-consistent Styke third, while fourth for Reardon’s teammate Mosig secured him the overall round win.

Fifth was Dobson in another exceptional ride for the round, trailed by Bopping, Makeham, Monea, Long and Cooper the top 10.

The overall podium eventually resulted in Mosig with the overall from Gibbs, who got the better of teammate Styke on countback. In terms of the championship, it’s now Gibbs with a 14-point buffer from Mosig and Styke.
