Harrison gets first Lites win as Simmonds reclaims Super X Open lead in Campbelltown

JDR Motorex KTM's Brenden Harrison landed his first ever Super X, Australasian Supercross Championship, victory in the Pro Lites category at Campbelltown's third round of season 2011 on Saturday night, 5 October.

JDR Motorex KTM's Brenden Harrison landed his first ever Super X, Australasian Supercross Championship, victory in the Pro Lites category at Campbelltown's third round of season 2011 on Saturday night, 5 October.

The 22-year-old Queenslander broke through for a popular first career win in the professional ranks, boosting himself well into title contention with 4-1-3 results in the action-packed Triple Header main event.

"I'm ecstatic and the feeling is just unbelievable," Harrison said. "It's like all the hard work has finally paid off and came together tonight. I'll just take it round by round from here and focus on my riding. For now, I'm lost for words. I really have to thank the whole JDR Motorex KTM team and everybody who has stuck behind me."

After a pair of third places in the opening two rounds, Harrison now sits second in the series, just three points off JDR Motorex KTM teammate and fellow 250 SX-F rider Matt Moss.

Moss was fast in the Emu Plains-based team's home round of the series, but just fell short of the podium in fourth overall after taking home 2-2-10 results on the night.

Queenslander Robbie Marshall scored his best result of the year in sixth after winning his heat race for Coastal KTM, now seventh in the series with two rounds remaining.


In the premier Pro Open ranks it was Tye Simmonds who continued to prove his potential for JDR Motorex KTM aboard the 450 SX-F, finishing third overall with a consistent run of 4-3-4 results in the Triple Header.

"Tonight was a battle, but it's nice to have that red plate again in the lead of the series," 19-year-old Simmonds commented. "I feel really good on the bike and I'm glad tonight was dry, so we'll keep working and move onto the next two rounds - see what we can do!"

Bourke resident Simmonds reclaimed the championship lead in the Opens by a single point, returning to the podium for the first time since his triumphant opening round win.

Simmonds' teammates endured a difficult night, with Ryan Marmont 10th aboard the 350 SX-F after a number of mishaps while battling for position, while the luckless Dan Reardon was credited 16th despite technical problems hindering his night.

The Super X, Australasian Supercross Championship, will reach its penultimate round next weekend in Maitland, NSW, for round four in the 2011 series on Saturday, 12 November.
