JDR/KTM Factory Racing rider Josh Cachia raced to his second MX Nationals, Australian Motocross Championship, round win of the season in the MX2 category at Horsham in Victoria on Sunday, 15 July.
Cachia added the Horsham round win to his prior overall at Murray Bridge earlier this season, proving that he and the KTM 250 SX-F are consistent contenders for the 2012 title chase. The 20-year-old from Carpenter Rocks dominated the round with second in the opening moto before claiming two convincing wins in the final pair of motos.
“It was really good to show my speed and get another win here this weekend,” Cachia said.
“This is motocross; the track was rough, rutted, sticky and just gnarly out there after the rain. I couldn’t have done it without my whole team, so thank you to JDR/KTM Factory Racing. Hopefully we can keep winning races.”
Following his success in Horsham, Cachia maintains fourth in the championship, but closed to within 53 points of the championship leader with three rounds left to run.
The Australian Motocross Championship series will continue at Appin in New South Wales on Sunday, 29 July.
