Kade Mosig on his way to victory at Appin
Daniel Reardon is back and as fast as ever

Mosig and Reardon Shine for CDR Yamaha

13 Apr 2015

CDR Yamaha’s Kade Mosig raced to only his second MX1 round win of his career after taking victory at round two of the MX Nationals, held at Appin Raceway, over the weekend.

Mosig has been a revelation this far in season 2015, taking second place at the opening round and now making the next step claiming a popular round victory at Appin on his CDR Yamaha YZ450F. Mosig finished the day 1-4 results to win the round by a point by over his nearest rival.

Moto one saw Mosig just outside the top five but as the race moved towards the half way stage, Mosig made his move and began heading towards the front. He stalked the leader for a couple of laps before making the pass stick and went on for an impressive race win.

Moto two saw the Victorian again stuck in traffic in the early stages but he was able to break clear and pass his way into fourth place and enough to secure the round win.

“I’m stoked,” Mosig said moments after the race. “I didn’t ride great in that last one but Mike kept me informed on the pit board as to what was going on and what I needed to do and we made it happen.

“I rode pretty tight there at the finish but I wasn’t going to let this slide and I wanted this round win pretty bad.

“It’s nice to see the results starting to roll in for both myself, Daniel and the whole team as everyone has worked so hard to make this happen. I’m really enjoying my time with this team and the CDR Yamaha YZ450F is an amazing bike. Thank you to everyone on the team, I won’t forget this day for a long time,” Mosig ends.

Well, it took just two rounds in Daniel Reardon’s comeback to show what he has got as he raced his way to a moto win at Appin. Reardon claimed 6-1 results for the day with both performances as impressive as the other.

Reardon charged to sixth in moto one after a fall in the opening lap that saw him way down the field but in moto two he decided that he wasn’t going to get involved in the first turn traffic jam and he motored his way to the lead and set off for the finish line.

Reardon gapped the field in the early laps, stretching his lead out to eight seconds at one point before backing it down in the final stages to cruise to a comfortable race win. His 6-1 results left him just off the podium in fourth place for the round.

“I tell you, it feels nice to get a good start and be able to ride my own race,” Reardon explained. “Every race so far I seem to be working my way through the back after an early incident but to get out front in moto two and just put my head down and go for it was just what I needed.

“The bike was again working well on the weekend and as a team, it was a great result for CDR. Congratulations to Kade on a great day and hopefully both of us can keep this momentum going from here on,” Reardon said.

“It was a good, morale boosting day for the team,” states team owner, Craig Dack. “It’s nice to say we have good bikes and the right riders to win but to actually get out there and do it on a tough track like Appin gives the entire team the confidence and belief that we are on the right path.

“Both riders did a great job and are really motivated. Both are extremely fit which I think was a big factor in their results today as well as the bikes looked awesome out on the track so Gary, Brad and the mechanics are also doing an amazing job. Congratulations to Mike Landman on getting his first round win as a mechanic also.

“I think we still need to improve at Superpole as that could be what shapes this championship so we will have a focus on that in the coming rounds.

“Round three is in two weeks’ time and it’s important we keep this momentum rolling,” Dack ends.

Round three of the MX Nationals hits the Broadford Motorsport Complex in Victoria on April 26. For more information about the MX Nationals and a full list of results, www.mxnationals.com.au
