Despite not winning a race, Serco Yamaha’s Pirelli MX2 championship leader Wilson Todd extended his series lead heading into the series’ mid-season break after an enthralling day of racing at Murray Bridge

After two eventful motos, just four points separated the top four positions, as Todd stood atop the podium, with Davey Motorsports KTM’s Hamish Harwood in second. A memorable day for class rookie Jy Roberts (Husqvarna) saw him close out third position.

KTM Motocross Racing Team’s defending MX2 champion Egan Mastin dominated the opening race with a wire-to-wire victory, enjoying a nine-second lead over his rival Todd, who had his hands full keeping third-placed Kyle Webster (Penrite Pirelli Honda CRF Racing) at arm’s length. 2017 round winner and fastest qualifier Hamish Harwood crossed the finishline in fourth, with Dylan Wills (DPH Motorsport Husqvarna) fifth.

In the Pirelli MX2’s second outing, young Jy Roberts snatched the holeshot and never looked back on his way to a break-out race win more than seven seconds ahead of the hard-charging Harwood. A consistent Todd placed third, while Webster finished fourth and Aaron Tanti (Complete Parts Kawasaki) rounded out the top five.
