Supercross Masters Australian Supercross Championship

Round 10 – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne



McGrath Turns it on at Melbourne Supercross Masters!



He came. He saw. And he conquered. American Supercross legend Jeremy McGrath turned it on in a dazzling display to deliver a knock-out punch in last night’s (August 12) tenth round of the Supercross Masters at Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne Park.



But while the American star did it easy in the previous night’s ninth round at the downtown Melbourne venue, this time around McGrath had to work considerably harder for his money by charging through the pack from a fifth place start.



Australian riders Michael Byrne, Cameron Taylor TAYLOR and Craig Anderseon made the front-running in the 20-lap Final, bringing the partisan hometown crowd to the edge of their seats as McGrath staged a stunning blast through the field. One-by-one he picked off the Aussie guns with determined moves, before finally barging by Byrne on lap 12 to grab the lead and rip off his second straight win in his whirlwind Down-Under appearance.



“Well, I messed up on the start tonight, but I guess that maybe helped to make for the best race of the weekend!” enthused McGrath, who knew his rampaging ride had brought the crowd to the edge of their seats. “The guys rode really well tonight, and on a tight track like this, you have to make some heavy moves to pass, and that’s what it took for me to get through. The (Australian) guys kept me honest tonight, and that made for a great race.”

The 20th Annual AMA Amateur National MX Championships at Loretta Lynn’s wrapped up Saturday, August 11th.

Andrew Short won the 125 A Pro Sport class after a close battle with Josh Hansen and Chase Reed. Hanson won the 250/Open B Mod title. Josh Woods won the 250/Open Pro Sport.



Mountain bike legend John Tomac won the Vet B/C class in a last moto thriller. Tomac went down in the first turn of the last moto and moved up far enough to finish second overall, then Rodney Cavender, who also fell in the first turn and was about to take the title, was knocked off his bike on the last lap.



Minibike sensation Mike Alessi won the 85 Mod 9-13 class. Broc Hepler won the 85 Mod 14-15. The toughest mini class, the 105 Super Mini, went to Jimmy Nelson.



The Women’s 105-125 Up class had great racing, with Stefy Bau finishing 1-1-2 and taking her first Loretta’s title. Defending champion Jessica Patterson suffered a broken leg while leading the second moto.



Tennessee’s Kevin Walker was the fastest old guy, winning both the Vet A Plus 30 and the Plus 25 classes.



The Loretta’s Lynn’s Amateur championships are seen as the most important preparation for professional motocross racing. Scouts and representatives attend the event throughout the week to congratulate the winners, pose for photos, and make the all-important deals for the nest season.
