New Zealand champion Maximus Purvis added a Horsham round of Senior Victorian Motocross Championships to his trophy list as Dooen roared to life at the weekend.

Purvis was a last-minute entry to a star-studded field and won the MX 1 A Grade class ahead of highly fancied Victorian Joben Baldwin.

Lewis Stewart, who originally called Ararat home and now rides out of Indonesia, was third. In another standout performance, former Victorian champion Maddy Brown won a women’s event and Liam Andrews, who won a major amateur event in March, continued his form to win an MX 2 A Grade class.

Horsham Motorcycle Club spokesman Kenny Watts said the weekend of action was a great success with spectators drifting into the Dooen track throughout the weekend.

“The club received a lot of accolades from riders and their supporters about our course, which appears to be the envy of just about everyone,” he said.

The four-round championship series, which involved about 300 riders competing at Horsham, continues in Rosebud next month.

Mr Watts said the club would now turn its attention to club-level events before preparing for Western Region Championships in September.
