Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster will return to the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship this weekend in Wollongong after injury sidelined for Adelaide’s round two.

Webster, who had minimal preparation leading up the series after representing Team Australia at the 2019 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations (MXoN), suffered a practice crash following the season-opener, where he partially collapsed both lungs.

The MX Nationals MX2 runner-up was cleared to ride last week and returned to riding his CRF250R, with the number 96 set to rejoin the SX2 grid this Saturday night at WIN Stadium.

“I’ll be racing this weekend,” Webster declared to MotoOnline.com.au. “I managed to do a couple of days on the bike this week, and I felt pretty good.

“I haven’t had the most time riding supercross – I’ve only had a few days here and there. I’m not really expecting much – I’m not in the title or anything, so I just want to have fun really and enjoy the race.”

This weekend’s third round of the Australian Supercross Championship will be accompanied by the Australian Motorcycle Festival, which will take place at Lang Park on 9-10 November.
