The Supercross Team were out to make an impact this year at the Australian Championships at Mount Gambier.
Max Cairns looked very comfortable on his Supercross Blur in the 16 boys class at the final round of the Champbikx series on Thursday. A strong second place moved him up to second overall in the series and in good stead for the Nationals on Saturday.
When Saturday came Max was going even faster and was looking good for the podium. He was off to a great start in the final battling for first when he went down on a roller in the first straight. Max had to settle for seventh place and now has his eyes firmly set on the World Championships.
Factory Supercross Vet Pro, Jade McPherson, was a little disappointed with the small numbers in the 30+ Masters class but made the most of it. He was sitting in the three spot in the final until the last half of the track where Simon Anderson started to make some uncharacteristic mistakes Jade took advantage and took his Supercross Bolt LT to second place.
Jade was in the 35-39 cruiser class as well and was looking to make another podium. It didn’t quite go to plan in the final and Jade had to settle with fourth.
