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).
