Shane Carless

AMCA MX1 Champion

Written by Mike Wood

Once again MX1 was bursting with talent and an abundance of potential moto winners all who had title aspirations. In this class a rider certainly had to be consistently at the top of their game if they wanted to figure in the end of season shake-up. Bearing that in mind, Shane aboard his 350cc FUS Marsh MX Husqvarna certainly delivered the goods in 2019 with a string of quality performances always remaining totally focused and controlled along the way.

Throughout the season Shane won 9 moto's also earning 7 out of 9 podium placings including overall victories at Boraston and Culham. Going into the last round at Long Lane he held a 28 point advantage over Neville Bradshaw. Although Nev then produced a super maximum to reduce the deficit down to just 6 points, Shane remained very composed to get the job done and the title in the bag.

Shane will be back to defend his hard earned title in 2020 for what already promises to be a high quality MX1 contest. Many congratulations on your victory this year.
