The second round of the privateer South Cup took place at round three of the MX Nationals in Broadford, Victoria, over the weekend, providing the opportunity for self-funded riders to continue with their own championship hunt.

Once again, South Cup showcased the talent of the hard-working riders of the MX Nationals series, with impressive results recorded across both the Motul MX1 and Pirelli MX2 classes.

In the Motul MX1 class, KTM-mounted Daniel Banks once again took the round honours, claiming 15th in moto one and 13th in moto two, handing him his second privateer overall for 2015.

Second place for the round in the Motul MX2 class was taken Honda-mounted Rory McKercher, while third place was claimed by KTM rider Scott Green.

In the Pirelli MX2 class, Riley Graham (KTM) also collected his second privateer round win, recording a 12th in moto one and an outstanding sixth place in moto two, leaving him in eighth overall in the main class competition.

Second place in the Pirelli MX2 class was claimed by Joel Green (Yamaha), ahead of KTM rider Thomas Ravenhorst, who managed to secure third overall for the round.

The third round of the South Privateer Cup will take place at the fourth round of the MX Nationals at Murray Bridge on May 17 2015.
