Marmont as consistent as ever with another top four finish at Canberra Super X
Justin Brayton racks up another podium visit at round two of Super X

Rock Solid Marmont for CDR Rockstar Yamaha

24 Oct 2010

CDR Rockstar Yamaha’s Jay Marmont overcame an emotional week and a huge qualifying crash to post fourth overall at round two of the Super X Championship at Bruce Stadium, Canberra on Saturday Night.

Round two of the championship featured the triple challenge format where the top supercross racers in Australia fight it out over three, seven lap back to back races with only five minutes break between each race. It is a real test of speed and fitness for all the riders on the start line.

Marmont posted 5-3-4 finishes in the damp and slippery conditions to take fourth overall for the night and move into third place in the series standings with five rounds remaining.

“It was an up and down day for me,” Marmont said at the end of racing. “The track was tough to ride as it was very slippery in spots, yet quite tacky in others. You had to use plenty of throttle control and be smart with line choices.”

“I felt I put in a good effort and fourth isn’t a bad finish, especially as I was able to move up in the points.

“Things will continue to improve in the coming rounds,” he finishes.

US import, Justin Brayton also had another solid night, landing on the podium in third spot. Brayton is in Australia as a guest of the CDR Rockstar Yamaha team and continues to impress with his speed and maturity.

Brayton’s time in Australia is short-lived as he is only contracted for the opening three rounds of the series and will head back to the USA and return to his Joe Gibbs Racing Yamaha Team in preparation for the upcoming AMA Supercross championship.

CDR Rockstar Yamaha owner Craig Dack is happy with his teams’ performance in Canberra, but also expects Marmont to come on strongly in the remaining rounds.

“Jay sits in third now and with Brayton going home after the next round, that effectively puts him in second. Jay traditionally gets off to sluggish start in championships and now we are well into the series, I think he will gain momentum and be right in contention by the final round in Brisbane.”

The team now heads for Tasmania where Aurora Stadium in Launceston will host round three of the SuperX championship.
