JOEL BROWN CLAIMS FIRST BLOOD AT AFMXC OPENER


NSW’s Joel Brown has lived up to expectations he’s the rider to beat at the 2013 Australian and Underground Freestyle Motocross Championships (AFMXC) by claiming victory at the opening round, the Jetpilot Invitational, at Coonabarabran, NSW over the weekend.


Brown conquered both a world-class course and stiff competition from Australian legend Matt Schubring and Nowra’s Luke McNeill on his way to the win. 


The YZ250 rider was at his aggressive best, throwing some of the biggest tricks in the business such as Seatgrab Indy Flips, Whip Flips, a Double Can flip off the 110ft ramp and huge upright combos.


“I’m really pumped to win on a big course like this,” Brown said afterward. “It was also great to be standing on the podium next to [Matt Schubring]. I’ve looked up to him as a rider for a long time.”

Schubring, who has renounced his retirement to return to the sport he loves, was at his smooth, stylish best around a daunting course littered with both steel and dirt hits. As well as his signature tricks and quarter-pipe domination, Schuie also threw his first Superflip Indy in years in a bid to topple Brown from the top of the dais, but had to settle for second.


“It’s been a long time since I’ve ridden a course this big and I’m just happy to come out, ride with everyone and support the series that’s supporting Aussie FMX,” the Queenslander said afterward.


After winning the series qualifying round last month Luke McNeill proved he can mix it with the big guns with a well-deserved podium place. 


In the Underground Championship that runs parallel to the AFMXC, expat Kiwi Callum Shaw proved he’s the man to beat with big Superflip Indies and dirt-to-dirt flips.


AFMXC series organiser Joel Rayner was ecstatic at how smoothly the Jetpilot Invitational ran and the high quality of riding around a brutal course.


“Not taking anything away from the guys, but I’m genuinely surprised at how comfortable everyone was on such a big course,” Rayner said. “Even the new guys who progressed to the championship from the qualifying event hit almost every obstacle and did it safely. It just goes to show just how deep the talent pool runs in Australia. 


“I also want to give credit to Cameron Sturtridge and the Goanna Tracks staff. They put on an amazing venue for us and the amount of work they invested into prepping the course for the boys is outstanding.”


The second round of the AFMXC, the Unit Invitational, will be held at Boonah, Qld on September 14.

AFMXC HITS THE BIGGEST COURSE IN AUSTRALIA

TWENTY PROFESSIONAL AND amateur freestyle motocross riders will tackle the biggest, toughest FMX course in the country at Round 2 of the Australian FMX Championships at Coonabarabran this weekend for the Jetpilot Invitational.

With the first round on the Sunshine Coast cancelled due to bad weather last month, the riders are eager to get into the thick of the action, but will have to pit their skills against an X Games-style FMX compound as well as each other.

Series favourite Joel Brown is coming in hot after stepping up his training program in 2013. The New South Welshman has made several trips overseas and gained considerable experience riding with some of the best riders in the world, including 2013 Red Bull X-Fighters’ champion Tom Pages. 

However, Brown will have his work cut out for him: the rider list shows huge depth of talent capable of taking wins, including Aussie OG legend Matt Schubring, the talented Luke McNeill who convincingly won the AFMXC qualifier held in June, and Pat Bowden, who is capable of producing a winning runs. 

Showtime FMX Kawasaki rider Brad Burch also returns to the AFMXC series and could easily cause an upset, and young up-and-comers Harry Bink, Jake Smith, Aaron Guthrie and New Zealand's Callum Shaw all prove the competition is shaping up to be the best Australia has seen in years.

The AFMXC Jetpilot Invitational is closed to the public, but there will be video highlights after the event.
