AUSTRALIA, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, MURRAY BRIDGE. DPH Motorsport Husqvarna-mounted Victorian Kade Mosig has won the final moto at Murray Bridge Round 6 of the 2018 Pirelli MX Nationals Sunday, 27th May 2018, breaking a 16 race winning streak by CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team’s Dean Ferris.

When the gate dropped on the opening Thor MX1 moto, KTM Motocross Racing Team’s Luke Clout surged to the front of the pack and commanded the race for 25 minutes while Ferris clawed his way through the pack. With just a handful of laps remaining, Ferris made his move for the lead and held a desperate Clout at bay to eventually win by five-seconds. Gibbs ditched his goggles to finished third, while local hero Brett Metcalfe (Penrite Honda Racing) finished fourth and Kiwi Rhys Carter (Complete Parts Kawasaki) fifth.

DPH Motorsport’s Kade Mosig started off the 2018 strong with a third place in the opening moto of the season, an eighth place in the second moto was enough for fourth overall for round 1 (Victoria, Maffra-Sale). Round 2 resulted in a sixth place finish in moto 1, and an eighth in moto (after a restart) for an eighth overall for the round (New South Wales, Appin). Round 3 and 4 headed to Wonthaggi, Victoria, a local track for Gippsland’s Kade Mosig. Saturday’s round 3 resulted in a ninth and a sixth for seventh overall. Sunday’s round 4, Mosig began to find his feet with a fourth in moto 1, and a third place in moto 2 granted Mosig third overall for the round. A week later Mosig was still building momentum, a ninth in moto 1 created a drive in Mosig to come out charging in moto 2, setting the fastest lap on the opening lap and led from start to finish, and fought off immense pressure from the defending champion Dean Ferris. The 9-1 result gave Mosig his second podium for the season and a triumph that no one has been able to match this season, a race victory. Kirk Gibbs finished a consistent third, more than 20 seconds behind the leading pair, trailed by an improved Dylan Long (CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Racing Team) and Brett Metcalfe.

The Australian Motocross Series heads into a mid-season break and will resume 1st July 2018 at Coolum, Queensland.
