Main Event – Position 7

Waters qualified 4th and made his way to the lead of his SX1 heat race, but made a small mistake which allowed Dean Ferris past and as a result, Waters finished 2nd.

Waters had a good gate pick for the main event, and a great start meant he came out in 3rd and quickly got himself into 2nd.

Unfortunately Waters dropped the bike down in the sand section, and fell back into 11th.

Waters was able to recover and got into 7th, but there was a massive gap from his position to the next group of riders and he finished in 7th.

Waters was happy with his starting position, but was devastated to have dropped the bike and is now looking forward to claiming some redemption at the Sydney round.

Round 4 and 5 of the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship will be held at the Monster Energy AUS-X Open in Sydney on 11-12 November.

“THE WEEKEND WASN’T TOO BAD, IT WAS A PRETTY SMALL AND BASIC TRACK THAT TURNED SUPER HARD PACK AND WASN’T TOO ENJOYABLE TO RIDE. I WAS GUTTED TO DROP THE BIKE IN THE SAND AFTER GETTING A GOOD START, BUT WE WILL MOVE ONTO NEXT WEEK NOW. BIG THANKS TO MY DAD FOR BACKING ME ALL THE WAY, MIKE LANMAN AND THE REST OF TEAM HONDA FOR THE SUPPORT.”
