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.
