Brayton was undefeated in both the Straight Rhythm X and Supercross events capping off a superb time down under. Representing the Honda Genuine Racing team, Brayton added the victories to his recent Australian Supercross Championship title.

Brayton won the supercross event over fellow American Wil Hahn in second and Dean Ferris in third. In the Straight Rhythm, Brayton once again took top honours over the retiring Hahn in second with Kawasaki’s Kade Mosig taking out third.

“What a way to finish my stay in Australia,” Brayton shared. “The past three months have been nothing short of amazing. I have loved being back on the Honda, my family and I have been welcomed by everyone and I can’t wait to return next year. All things going well, Australia could become my second home over the next few seasons.

“I just want to thank everyone who made this possible, especially Honda Genuine, Honda Australia and American Honda, it’s surreal to think this came together via a message I received on Instagram.”

“This has been the best preparation for the up and coming American Supercross Championship. I know a lot of Australian’s have said they have another rider to follow now, I just hope I can make my new friends and fans proud.” Brayton concluded.

In taking out each event, Brayton took home a cool $30,000 in prize money… not bad for a weekend’s work!
