Mo­tor­cross cham­pion

Kwinana Courier - - News -

Luke Ga­is­ford won the 2018 Aus­tralian Quad Mo­tocross Cham­pi­onship on the week­end.

SOUTH­ERN sub­urbs rider Luke Ga­is­ford won the 2018 Aus­tralian Quad Mo­tocross Cham­pi­onship.

Chris Bos­nakis, from the north­ern sub­urbs, won the first three races at the Col­lie Mo­tor­cy­cle Club track on the week­end, go­ing into the fourth on 105 points ahead of WA ri­val Ga­is­ford on 96 and An­drea Ce­sari on 90.

Bos­nakis and Ga­is­ford were both fly­ing down the main straight with Bos­nakis in front by only 10 sec­onds but as they hit the jump Bos­nakis went air­borne, land­ing hard and break­ing his shock to put him out of con­tention for the rest of the cham­pi­onship.

Ga­is­ford went on to win races four and five, tak­ing out the na­tional ti­tle for a fourth time (2011, 2012, 2017, 2018) with a to­tal of 166 points.

Ce­sari was run­ner-up on 154, with Jake Van Valet in third place on count­back with Blake Croo­nen on 136.

The 27-year-old said tak­ing back-to-back cham­pi­onships was “such a great feel­ing”.

“All the hard work by everyone has paid off and my new bike was awe­some all week­end,” he said.

Other win­ners in­cluded Si­enna Comito, (ju­nior sup­port 200cc air cooled only), Michael Har­court (vet­er­ans), Darryl Maringoni (club­man), Josh McKay (in­ter­me­di­ate) and Waldo Hussie (club­man/vet­er­ans sup­port).
