DECEMBER 12, 2018: There's no denying the supercross talent of riders such as Ben Townley, Josiah Natzke, Carlin Hedley and Korban Paget.

These were the riders who produced unbeaten performances at a damp round one of the New Zealand Supercross Championships at Tokoroa a fortnight ago and the question now is can they repeat those performances at the second and final round near Invercargill this Saturday (December 15)?

Four of the five championship classes were dominated by just one rider at the Tokoroa circuit, although there is plenty that might still happen during the final races at Winton this Saturday.

Oropi's Townley (SX1, open class), Mount Maunganui's Natzke (SX2, 250cc), Ohaupo's Hedley (SX Lites, 125cc) and Rangiora's Paget (Junior 250) each recorded a hat-trick of wins in their respective classes at Tokoroa, while, in the remaining championship class, the Junior Lites, Hamilton bothers Nicholas and Dylan Westgate ended up sharing the top spot.

Nicholas Westgate finished with a 1-1-7 score-card at Tokoroa, while his sibling rival Dylan Westgate scored 2-3-2 results, Nicholas eventually getting the nod as overall winner thanks to the count-back rule.

Each of these riders know there's plenty still to be done before the championships wrap up at Winton on Saturday, except for Hedley, who learned this week that he has already been crowned champion of the SX Lites class.

With insufficient entries for this class at Winton, the class has been dropped from the programme for this weekend and the result has been declared.

Meanwhile, Townley has indicated that he may not be racing at Winton this weekend, perhaps leaving the way clear for the runner-up rider in the SX1 class, Taupo's Cohen Chase, to take advantage.

However, Nelson's Reece Walker is also well-positioned, just two points behind Chase.

Motueka's Josh Coppins is tipped to make his first appearance in the series on Saturday and that may upset a few points calculations too.

Former factory Grand Prix motocross star Coppins won the SX2 class in the supercross nationals last season, jumping in at the last minute to replace an injured Maximus Purvis, but this year Coppins will be racing in the SX1 class.

Saturday's event at Winton at the VetSouth Super-X Track in Ryan Road, is billed as "the world's southern-most supercross". It is always an extremely popular venue and sure to draw a large crowd.

The Tokoroa event was supported by Craig Stevens Yamaha and the Winton event, hosted by the Southland Motorcycle Club, will be supported by Brent Scammell Honda.

2017 Mike Godfrey Memorial Report - 10th Jun 2017

2017 Mike Godfrey Having ridden the inaugural Michael Godfrey in 1984 after Mike was tragically killed in a car accident, this event is always at the top of my  'have to do' Motocrosses.
After spending the early 80's battling Mike around the South Island on our 125's it has now become tradition to ride this event in his memory.
Never winning the MGM feature race in its 33 years is one of my only regrets in my MX career, although I have finished very close in second on too many occassions. Nearing 50 my shot at winning is now over as I would rather watch the likes of Ben Townley, Justin McDonald and the likes battle it out from the sidelines with a cold one after some battles in the vets class.
This year while unforunate that Jacob (Scam Jnr) was making the 'big bucks' in Aussie and couldn't race, Scam Jnr Senior (Mitchell my eldest son) and one of his mates Antz made the Brent Scammell Honda Team.
The weekend was a series of events for me, starting off with running out of diesel heading up,then forgetting to fit my transponder before starting practice and to top it off falling off at the start gates before even starting practice!
But wait it gets worse! Taken down by another rider in the first corner of the first race (after qualifying second in vets) and starting from dead last, but pushing through the field of 33 45 plus vets to finish 4th and getting the fastest lap time.
Race 2 wasn't much better after a mediocre start while blasting up the field another rider clipped my front wheel sending me cart wheeling down the track.Battered bike and body I was forced back to the pits and unfortunately DNF'd.
Usually not one to pull out of a race unless mechanical failure,injury or no peak on my helmet I had pretty much the trifecta! Oh well 3 races left!!! A battle with the leaders to finish 3rd in the last race on Saturday saw me sitting 8th overall, not a position I was happy with! Day 2 and it had rained a lot through the night and the track was muddy but still rideable. A 2nd place behind Dean Baird and the last race called off because of the weather left me in 5th = overall! With a good last race placing of 2nd gave me the countback and the trophy!
It was great to see so many riders from down South attend one of my favourite events of the year and hopefully more make the trip next year. For all results check out or
Cheers and see you in the shop or at the track.
