Honda’s Dean Wilson and Max Anstie dominate with back-to-back overall wins at the Fox Australian Supercross Championship in Newcastle Triple Crown event.

The hard packed track was slick and slippery thanks to rain leading into the event, with a challenging set of whoops further making conditions extremely technical. Smart decisions and strong starts were crucial, and ultimately, saw the star riders rise to the top. With the Triple Crown format in play for SX1 & SX2, it was a make-or-break night for championship contenders resulting in intense racing and compelling viewing for fans. 

Wilson cleaned up with the overall win in Newcastle, took home the maximum 75 championship points from the Triple Crown format giving him a commanding lead on the SX1 Australian Supercross Championship title going into the final round. CDR’s Hill was second overall, while his teammate Clout took home third place. 

Wilson’s teammate, Justin Brayton of Boost Mobile Honda, had a challenging night to say the least. He secured 2nd place in the first two finals but experienced a significant crash in the final race entering turn 1. This unfortunate incident left both him and his bike battered and bruised.

In the SX2 class, Max Anstie also secured the overall win in Newcastle, maximum 75 championship points and takes a commanding lead in the SX2 Australian Supercross Championship title going into Melbourne. Crawford finished second overall, with Barham taking out third in his first SX2 podium finish.
