Reflecting on the results at the 72nd Motocross of Nations (MXoN) at Redbud, America, it would be safe to say that Team Australia will still be riding a high after scoring fourth overall position on the scoreboard. The skills shown by all team members on the world stage was nothing short of brilliant and sets the bar high in preparation for 2019.
This success achieved by Team Australia though could not have been made possible, if not for the support they received from Moto Outlet. As a full-service online motorcycle gear and accessories retailer, Moto Outlet were right behind Team Australia in their efforts to leave their mark on the MXoN stage. Motorcycling Australia (MA) wishes to recognise and thank Moto Outlet for their contribution in helping fund the team to reach America.
Co-Owner of Moto Outlet, Chris Urquhart, explained to MA why they originally got involved; “We were just looking to contribute in some way and considering I come from a long motorcycle racing background, it only seemed right to put forward our support and help the team make it to America to dominate on a world stage!
“I have found that Motocross is so popular overseas in places such as America, but back home in Australia the passion and support really lacks and it’s disappointing to see. I believe that more people should step up to help this sport because we have such excellent talent that needs to be recognised.
Upon reviewing the events that played out earlier this month, Urquhart expressed how pleased he was for Team Australia, especially considering the intimidating competition and conditions.
“Seeing the team really shine over the that weekend was great! They faced a lot of pressure and really tough conditions that they may not have been used to, but they rode extremely well and it was just great to see,” noted Urquhart.
Moto Outlet is a proudly Australian retail and online store that is committed to building a one-stop shop for Motocross, Adventure and Road gear, and accessories. Located in Yatala, Queensland, their ethos is to deliver the best products to those who live and breathe motorcycles.
