He gave it everything but Motorex KTM rider Kirk Gibbs was unable to give his home fans the show he wanted to at tonight’s third round of the Australian Supercross Championship at Mt. Gambier in South Australia.

Gibbs crashed out of the night’s main event and was taken to hospital with a possible punctured lung.

The race went to American rider Josh Hill from compatriot Weston Pieck with Jake Moss third.

Narrowly missing out on the podium was Motorex KTM’s Daniel McCoy who was the fastest qualifier on the night, but was pushed wide at the first corner and had to come through the pack.

McCoy came from ninth through to fourth and was coming home like a train toward the podium finishers when the chequered flag fell.

In the SX Lites final Choice Motorsports KTM’s Brenden Harrison made a welcome return to the podium finishing just 1.3 seconds behind winner Luke Styke, with Ryan Marmont third. Dylan Long (8th) and Kayne Lamont (9th) both grabbed top ten finishes while Tune Tech Racing KTM’s Kale Makeham was unfortunate to suffer a shoulder injury in the first heat of the night.

The next round of the Milwaukee presents the Terex Australian Supercross Championships will be a double-header held at Victoria’s Phillip Island circuit on October 18-20.
