SA RIDERS ROCKING THE ISLAND AT ROUND 1 OF ASBK 2022!
SA’s road race crew certainly kicked off 2022 with some great results at round 1 of ASBK 2022 – the mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul at the mecca of Australian Road Race, Phillip Island over the last weekend in February!
10 South Aussies, plus a truck load of team members, family members and supporters, made the trek, and if round 1 is anything to go by, there are a number of Croweaters that will challenge for podiums and race wins in 2022, and perhaps even an Australian Championship podium by seasons end.
And – as all, or most of our riders have social media pages, here are the ones that we know of so far, so check out their reports and thoughts on how their season has started!

Do just need to highlight a couple of amazing results though;
Cameron Rende – the 2021 MSA Rising Star nominee became the first South Aussie rider to score an Oceania Junior Cup race win, and now sits second in the Championship after the first round – and this was his first official round as a member of the Cup, his only previous rides were as a wildcard at The Bend last December at The Bend! HUGE CONGRATS CAM!
Olly Simpson – the 2012 MSA Rising Star had his first rides on a 600cc Supersport on the weekend and now sits 3rd in the Championships after a solid round, just in front of fellow South Aussie, Ty Lynch.
Dan Falzon – broken femur at the start of December at The Bend to sitting 5th in the Superbike Championship after round 1 some 3 months later – huge recovery from Dan, lets see what he can do with further recovery!
ROUND 2– QUEENSLAND RACEWAY 18-20 MARCH 2022 – get your live stream sorted – and word is there may be an extra South Aussie rider or 2 to cheer on from round 2 as well – so good to see so much excitement around our local riders in 2022 as they chase National goals!
