Clout wins at Maitland to lead MX1 Championship

New South Wales rider Luke Clout was the overall winner in the Thor MX 1 and now narrowly leads this class in the 2021 Penrite ProMX Championships – taking over the Red Plate from Regan Duffy.

CDR Yamaha Monster Energy rider Clout scored the maximum 50 points on the day and almost had a perfect round.  Clout won back-to-back motos, ahead of Kirk Gibbs (Honda, 44 points) and Todd Waters (Husqvarna, 38 points).

Gibbs, however, won the first part of the second Moto, but Clout scored the most points across the two to finish on the highest points.

Clout started the round brilliantly opening up a commanding in moto 1 after winning the holeshot and taking out the 100% Goggles MX1 Holeshot award.

In stark contrast, MX1 Championship leader heading into Maitland, Regan Duffy was forced to work his way through the field in the opening moto and the other motos too.  

It turned out to be a day of “fours” for Duffy. He eventually finished fourth in Moto 1 after storming through the field. He was fourth in part 1 of the second moto, after a mid-race crash. Duffy finished fourth overall on the day, just missing out on a podium finish by four points behind Waters.

Honda Racing Australia’s Kirk Gibbs rode extremely well at Maitland beating Clout in the first part of the second moto, but finished second overall in Moto 2 after a fourth place in part 2, finishing second on the podium.

Reigning champion Todd Waters (Husqvarna, 38 points) finished third overall with a third and fourth placing in each moto, respectively.

Gas Gas Australia’s Arron Tanti rounded out the Top 5 on the day, behind Duffy in fourth, with third in Moto 1 and a second in part 1 of the second moto, ahead of Gibbs and Duffy.

The opening MX1 moto produced some thrilling racing with a raging battle behind the Top 3 between Waters, Duffy, CDR Yamaha Monster Energy’s Hayden Mellross and Honda Racing’s Brett Metcalfe.

After three rounds, just eight points separates the top four riders – Luke Clout (122 points), Regan Duffy (119), Todd Waters (116) and Kirk Gibbs (114)

Webster just wins third MX2 round in a row

Victorian rider Kyle Webster (Honda) won the Pirelli MX2 class at Maitland, to make it three overall wins in a row from three rounds.  But he was challenged in the third round and scored 43 points, with a win in the opening moto and third in the second, and only just beat Yamaha rider Jesse Dobson by one point (42).

Yamaha riders Jay Wilson and Rhys Budd battled it out for the final podium spot with Wilson (38) beating Budd (37) just by a point.

Where Webster completely dominated the opening two rounds at Wanthaggi (NSW) and Canberra (ACT), a trio of contenders stepped up at Maitland and are now battling for second overall position, ready to pounce on Championship leader Webster.

Although Jay Wilson won the holeshot in Moto 1 and lead early, Webster passed him early and coasted to an easy victory over Rhys Budd and Serco Yamaha Jesse Dobson, who both passed Wilson as he made a mistake late in the race.

With five wins from five starts, everyone expected Webster to continue this rich form into the second moto at Maitland.  But after a bad start, Webster was challenged for the first time in the series and had to fight his way through the field.

Yamaha trio Jay Wilson, Nathan Crawford and Jesse Dobson seized the opportunity and fought an epic battle in the opening laps. With Rhys Budd in fourth, we now had four of the five Championship leaders battling for the lead and trying to bridge the gap on Webster.

Nathan Crawford, who was in fifth overall after two rounds, eventually took the lead and never looked back on his Serco Yamaha and went on to win the race. With a DNF in the first moto due to a mechanical issue, this win still keeps him in touch with the leaders.  

Dobson and Wilson fought for second place, with Dobson securing second.  Wilson finished third, having to fight off late attacks from Husqvarna rider Dylan Wills and the hard charging Webster.

Webster’s fifth placing in Moto 2, and Moto 1 win, was just enough to secure the overall round win on 43 points, just one point ahead of Dobson (42).
Jay Wilson (38) edged out Rhys Budd (37) for third, by a point, with Dylan WILLS (32) and Noah Ferguson (29) rounding out the top 5.

Heading into the fourth round at Wodonga Victoria on 25 July, Webster (on 143 points) leads Dobson by 34 points. Just five points now separate Dobson (109), Budd (106) and Wilson (104).

Fox scores maximum points in MX3 class at Maitland

New South Wales rider Blake Fox (GasGas) extended his Championship lead by 20 points in the Maxxis MX3 class, scoring maximum points at Maitland.  Fox won both motos on the day to finish the outright winner on 50 points ahead of Ryder Kingsford (Yamaha, 42) and Cooper Holroyd (Yamaha, 34) in third, who won on a countback after tying with Honda Ryder Cambell Williams.

KTM rider Connor Towill took the holeshot in the first moto just ahead of Fox and Kingsford. But continuing his form from round 2 in Canberra, Fox took the lead early to open up a 21 second lead on the rest of the field and convincingly win the Moto 1. Ruder Kingsford finished second, but was forced to fight his way back up through the field after an early mistake in Moto 1. After leading at the start, Connor Towill rode a brilliant race to finish in third position.

Blake Fox convincingly won Moto 2 – and the overall round – ahead of round one winner Ryder Kingsford, who finished in a distant second position in the moto and on the podium.  With Connor Towill crashing out in the second moto, the battle for third overall was between Cambell Williams (BCP Yoshimura Honda) and Cooper Holroyd (Yamaha) who traded positions throughout the race.

Holroyd eventually prevailed to secure the final podium place for the round – equal on points with Cambell Williams – but awarded third after finishing highest in the final moto.

After three rounds, GasGas rider Fox now leads the MX3 Championship on 147 points – 20 points ahead of Ryder Kingsford (Yamaha, 127). The battle for third is tight with just four points separating Kayden Minear (KTM, 91), Ben Novak (Honda, 89) and Kobe Drew (Yamaha, 87).
