Mixed Day For CDR Yamaha at ‘The Terrace’

6 Jul 2015

It was a case of one good race, and one not so good race, for the CDR Yamaha duo of Kade Mosig and Dan Reardon as they contested round six of the 2015 MX Nationals at Raymond Terrace, NSW, over the weekend.

Contesting the premier MX1 divsion, the day started strongly for the CDR Yamaha pair with both riders making it into the Go-Superpole top five shootout out. Reardon claimed second and Mosig in fifth pleasing team owner, Craig Dack, who pointed out a focus to improve their qualifying results.

Moto one saw Mosig up the front and running inside the top five in a tight knit group. He moved to fourth and then was engaged in a close battle with Luke Styke for the remainder of the race for the final spot on the podium.

Mosig couldn’t quite make a pass on Styke and was forced to settle for fourth.

Unfortunately, moto two wasn’t as good as he fell early in the race and dropped several positions. After remounting his bike, Mosig battled hard until the end but could only manage a 10th place finish and his combined 4-10 scores left him in seventh for the round. He now sits fourth overall on the leader board and well within striking distance of the riders in front of him with four rounds to go.

“A frustrating day today as a small mistake in race two left me with a 10th place finish and not the overall result I wanted. I felt I was riding well and had the speed and fitness to be on the podium today but I can’t afford to make those mistakes in a race and expect to stay in championship contention.

“Putting together a complete day with no mistakes will be the focus for the final four rounds and hopefully I can get myself right back up near the front in the championship points,” Mosig explains.

Dan Reardon’s day mirrored that of his team mate, posting a good qualifying time but his fall came in moto one where he was entrenched inside the top five before going down. The best Reardon could get back to was ninth at the end of the 30 minute race.

Moto two and this time with no crashes, Reardon was right up the front and battling Kirk Gibbs and Matt Moss for the lead positions. He finished the race in third and his 9-3 results gave him fourth for the round but he has now jumped to sixth in the championship.

“I just miscued a rut and went down,” Reardon says of his first race incident. “I was sitting comfortably in third as the race settled down but any chance of a good result went out the window when I hit the deck and dislocated my finger.

“It was good to rebound in race two and get a decent result but two motos make the day and I needed to get that sorted to finish on the podium at each round.”

The MX Nationals now moves to Shepparton in Victoria for round seven of the championship and the CDR Yamaha team will focus on eliminating the mistakes and making the most of the opportunities. Both riders have shown they have the speed, fitness and machinery to win but need to put all the ingredients together on the one day to make it a reality.
