North Brisbane Cup Thriller

North Brisbane Cup Thriller

Author: Media/Monday, December 10, 2018/Categories: State News

MotoGP racer Jack Miller added some extra prestige to a cracker North Brisbane Cup on Saturday afternoon and evening.
A rider list bulging with top-level speedway, dirt track, road race and enduro riders - and about 1000 spectators, ensured Queensland's biggest dirt track event of the year unfolded into an end-of-season spectacular.
The competition between the top six riders - Damien Koppe, Jarred Brook, Max Whale, Jake Allen, Kayden Downing and Jack Miller - was intense, with nothing to separate them.
The event's highest-profile guest, Miller, had clearly put effort into his preparation and was right on the pace. He illustrated the fact after going down in turn one of the Pro Open teams event, before remounting and carving back to third place in time for the change over to fellow Townsville terror Kayden Downing.
Husqvarna team mates Fraser Higlett and Lachy Stanford fought bravely, but admitted the top riders were at a whole other level.
Despite the relatively tight confines of Mick Doohan Raceway - for a long track slider designed for a mile track - speedway pro Josh Gracjonek proved himself competitive.
