Number 1, young Queenslander Taylah McCutcheon swept all five races, proving too strong for her competitors.

THE AMX MX Open was a huge success over the weekend, with Wonthaggi holding the biggest race of the year, with riders, fans and industry leaders swarming the racetrack to watch the 30-plus races held over two days.

AMX and the Bass Coast Shire Council moved fast to ensure the event went ahead, with only four weeks’ notice.

Director of Honda Racing Australia, Yarrive Konsky, was proud of everyone’s efforts.

“We had 264 entries including juniors aged from just five years old – our riders came from all over Australia and we’ve had a huge turnout from fans coming to witness some amazing battles,” Yarrive said.

Factory Honda’s Kyle Webster dominated the MX1 class, winning all three races and qualifying first.

CDR Yamaha Monster Energy’s newly signed Aaron Tanti took second and Factory Honda’s Brett Metcalfe finished third.

Webster was confident going into the weekend but didn’t know what to expect as this was his first hit out in 450 class against his rivals.

“This is what our sport and team needed, it was great to be racing again,” said Webster.

Yamaha proved too strong in the MX2 class.

Yamalube Yamaha Racing’s Rhys Budd raced away with two race wins and a second to take the overall ahead of Factory Kawasaki’s Empire rider, Jai Constantinou.

Newly signed Honda Genuine Ride Red rider, Liam Andrews, finished third.

The Bass Coast Shire Women’s Open showcased some of Australia’s best talent and young Queenslander Taylah McCutcheon proved too strong for her competitors.

Taylah swept all five races and Honda’s Maddy Brown and Maddy Healy were second and third respectively.

“I am really happy with the way I rode, and the other girls did great as well. This track is hard so I am glad we made the drive down from Queensland to compete – we will be racing here next year,” Taylah said.
