BATHURST wasn’t just home to a V8 Supercar race last weekend, it was also the host venue for the opening two rounds of the 2014 Australian Supercross Championship – dominated by Team Motul Suzuki star Matt Moss.
Moss was flawless on board the 2015 model RM-Z450 to win his heat races in both premier class SX1 main events, with the result a continuation of dual MX Nationals champion Moss’ recent run of form, which now sees him lead the ASX championship by six points.
“Everything is gelling at the moment and I feel really good on the bike,” Moss explained. “We were able to win both nights and I was happy with that, so now we will look to improve that bit more entering Phillip Island this weekend.”
Team mate Lawson Bopping charged through the field on Friday to marginally miss the podium in fourth, before Saturday saw him go one better for third overall in his first podium showing of the season. It was a positive start to the season after competing part-time so far this year.
“I was really close to the podium on Friday, but things went a lot smoother on Saturday which helped me get there,” Bopping said. “It’s exciting to start the season like this and now we look forward to Phillip Island.”
