SX2 rookie claims sixth in first-ever AUS Supercross main

Regan Duffy says he tagged onto the back of Chris Blose (Penrite Honda Racing) during his maiden main event at Port Adelaide’s second round of the Australian Supercross Championship, allowing him to learn from the experienced American.

Duffy rode strongly in just his second-ever round of supercross, finishing fourth in his heat to transfer directly to the main for the first time, putting on an excellent display of riding in the 15-lap outing before crossing the line in P6.

The Raceline KTM Thor rider entered the series with minimal time on a supercross track, having been called in to represent Australia at the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations (MXoN) last month in the Netherlands.

“I’m really happy with sixth place tonight,” said Duffy. “After getting boxed out in the first turn I put my head down and kept charging.

“When Chris Blose came by me I used it as an opportunity to learn from him and we worked our way to the front of the field. I’m enjoying the process of learning supercross, I’ll be going home now to work on a few things and can’t wait for round three at Wollongong in a few weeks’ time.”

The Western Australian is ranked 11th in the championship standings as the series heads to Wollongong in New South Wales on 9 November.
