MX Nationals press release:

Extreme wether conditions made for the toughest, most brutal first round to date.

With over 130mm of rain falling on the Appin circuit, riders and teams alike, were tested to new limits, the weather calling the event short with riders coming together in the decision to only race one moto.

In light of the treacherous, gruelling conditions we saw the likes of THOR MX1 winner Todd Waters, the only man on track to be jumping several jumps, and working his way from a first turn crash all the way through the pack to take a first place finish.

Hard charger and consistence Jy Roberts who was fastest qualifier and fastest man on track in the Raceline MX2 class taking out the win.

New Zealander Maximus Purvis, proved he is a dominate force in the mud after a solid performance walking away from round 1 with the red plate in the Pirelli MXD Class.

Series promoter Kevin Williams explained the decision to only do one moto.

“With the extreme conditions presented to us through out the day, the schedule was changed several times to try and accommodate.

Before i personally went around the pits and spoke to riders and teams, and the decision was made that after each class doing one moto and getting some championship points the day would be called off. It is never a situation you can plan for however in light of the decision we still saw some amazing talent bought to the surface” Finished Williams
