Australian duo Jay Wilson and Aaron Tanti have continued their main event form at the third round of Monster Energy Supercross in Anaheim.

Former Australian SX2 champion Wilson returned to racing at Angel Stadium, the Yamaha-mounted contender electing to sit out the previous stop in St. Louis in favour of improving his recovery from a pre-season crash.

Wilson, who was 17th at Anaheim’s season-opener, put on an impressive display of riding as he charged to 11th in the 18-lap affair. His result moves him to 18th in the 250SX West standings.

Fellow Yamaha-equipped rider Tanti, who came off a P13 result at St. Louis, also made a strong campaign at the Californian round to cross the line in 13th for the second straight weekend, positioning him 16th in the championship rankings.

Compatriots Joel Wightman (Honda) and Geran Stapleton (Honda) were just short of qualifying for the night show. Monster Energy Supercross heads to Glendale this Saturday night for round four.
