Mx Nationals Round 7

Horsham, VIC – JDR/KTM Factory Racing rider Josh Cachia raced to his second MX Nationals, Australian Motocross Championship, round win of the season in the MX2 category at Horsham in Victoria on Sunday, 15 July.
 
Cachia added the Horsham round win to his prior overall at Murray Bridge earlier this season, proving that he and the KTM 250 SX-F are consistent contenders for the 2012 title chase.
 
The 20-year-old from Carpenter Rocks dominated the round with second in the opening moto before claiming two convincing wins in the final pair of motos."It was really good to show my speed and get another win here this weekend," Cachia said. "This is motocross; the track was rough, rutted, sticky and just gnarly out there after the rain. I couldn’t have done it without my whole team, so thank you to JDR/KTM Factory Racing. Hopefully we can keep winning races."
 
Following his success in Horsham, Cachia maintains fourth in the championship, but closed to within 53 points of the championship leader with three rounds left to run.
 
Cachia was joined by JDR/KTM Factory Racing teammate Brenden Harrison at Horsham for the first time this season, returning from pre-season surgery that saw him forced out of the season’s first half. 
 
Harrison was sixth overall in a promising performance, logging 3-12-6 finishes in the trio of MX2 motos. Another KTM rider to finish inside the top 10 was MX2 debutant Joel Milesevic, stepping up from the MXD class on his KTM 250 SX.
 
JDR/KTM Factory Racing MX1 contender Dan Reardon finished 10th overall on Sunday on the 450 SX-F, with 11-10-11 results during the round. Reardon’s remains ninth in the championship.
 
In the MXD class it was Kiwi Kayne Lamont who scored his fourth consecutive win aboard a KTM 250 SX. Lamont won the opening two motos of the round, before clinching the overall with a third in the final moto of the weekend.
 
"I’m really happy to win the round and extend my lead in the series," Lamont said. "I really need to thank everybody who has helped me, my sponsors and my family for their support. The club did a really good job of the track considering the conditions, so it was a good weekend for me."
 
It was a KTM sweep of the podium for the second round in a row, with Dylan Leary second and Choice Motorsports KTM’s Dylan Long third after taking the win in moto three on his 250 SX-F. Victorian Kale Makeham made it four KTMs in the top four overall.
 
Lamont’s round win sees him extend his series lead to a healthy 29 points, followed by Long, while Leary and Makeham fill positions three and four with just three rounds remaining. 
 
The Australian Motocross Championship series will continue at Appin in New South Wales on Sunday, 29 July.
