After five titles in a row, Justin Brayton´s streak in Australia ended in the form of his Boost Mobile Honda teammate and new brand champ Dean Wilson.

Brayton’s hopes to clinch the sixth SX1 title at the FOX Australia Supercross series and become the most winning of all time wasn´t possible due to a broken scapula during the second round at New Castle, Triple Crown format event. Despite that, his determination put him in the box in the final round in Melbourne after being third. In terms of championship standings, the American ended 4th overall.

“I found out on Monday I had a broken scapula, anyone that has broken that bone knows what it’s like. This morning I didn’t think it was possible to ride. I’ll be back next year to try and get number six.” expressed Brayton in the post-race interview.

“This wasn’t my year. I’ve had an incredible run, winning five championships in a row. I made it to the podium in every race this year except the one where I had a collision with another rider. My passion for racing is still strong, so we’ll see what the future holds. Congratulations to Dean on the championship, and kudos to Honda for securing their sixth straight championship.”
