2009 Australasian Supercross Series Kicks off Round 1

Aurora Stadium, Launceston, Tasmania

Jay Marmont takes win! CDR Rockstar Yamaha’s Jay Marmont won the first round of the 2009 Monster Energy Super X championship, beating two-time AMA Supercross Champion Chad Reed, and Woodstock Honda Thor Racing’s Daniel Reardon.

This was defending Australasian Supercross Series Champion Reed’s first ride for Monster Energy Kawasaki. He did have a problem in his heat, forcing him to get to the final via LCQ.

But the victory belonged to Jay Marmont! “I just wanted to get out and there and race all day and I had a lot of fun out there tonight. There is no better way to start the series and this gives me a lot of confidence for the second round in Geelong next week.”

A disappointed Chad Reed, who was sore from his crash in his heat race said “It was a rough night for me. I had to go to last chance and come from the back in both races. Someone hit me from behind at the start in the heat race and came down on top of my elbow which put me out of the heat. It was extremely painful during both races – every bump it hurt so I had to be a bit cautious. I tried to be careful and not do anything silly but on the last lap I saw an opportunity to challenge for the race lead and I had to take it. I ended up winning the last race, which was pretty cool.”

The Monster Energy Super X will now make its way to Skilled Stadium in Geelong for the second round on Saturday October 24 – next Saturday!
