Jackson Richardson (Serco Yamaha) earned his first race win of the season moto two, and paired with his third in the opener, he was credited second overall. Raceline Pirelli KTM’s Jayden Rykers returned to form, and despite being forced to work his through the field in race two, it was still enough to claim third. Mitch Evans (Serco Yamaha) and Kyle Webster (Penrite CRF Honda Racing) wound up fourth and fifth respectively.
