New South Wales’ GasGas racer Blake Fox put on a clinical display at the Maitland round of the 2021 Penrite ProMX Championship, extending his points lead in the Maxxis MX3 title chase.

Connor Towill (KTM) grabbed the holeshot of the opening MX3 outing, but it didn’t take long for Fox to take the lead.

Ryder Kingsford (Yamaha) moved up to up to second, before a mistake saw him drop to fifth, and having to work his way back to third before time ran out.

Fox enjoyed a 23-second victory over Towill, with Kingsford a further 5.9 seconds behind. Kayden Minear (KTM) and Cambell Williams (Honda) rounded out the top five.

Towill again grabbed the holeshot of the second MX3 moto, but Fox snatched the lead off him two turns later. Kingsford also snuck past Towill on the opening lap, as Fox quickly put daylight between himself and the chasing pack.

By the time he took the checkered flag, Fox had stretched his lead to 24 seconds over Kingsford.

Behind them, Cooper Holroyd (Yamaha) got the upper hand of Williams to finish with a hard-fought third-place finish, and his first round podium. Ryan Alexanderson (KTM) finished fifth.

In the Classic Motocross Evolution Cup, Liam Beverly proved consistency is key as he took a one-point round win over multi-time Australian Motocross Champion, Craig Anderson.

Beverly’s 2-1-2 scorecard beat Anderson’s 1-4-1 result, with brother Danny Anderson finishing the day third overall with 3-2-3 results.

David Middleton and Trent Allison rounded out the top five places.
