ASBK: Mike Jones dominates and talks to us


It was a dominant weekend for Mike Jones at Round 2 of the Australian Superbike Championship at Morgan Park as the Kawasaki rider rode to two victories from his two outings.

Race 1

An amazing start saw Jones, Falzon and Hern come together, and in a test of nerve it was Jones who made way dropping behind the other two riders.

Hern took the lead at turn one from Falzon, and held onto it for the whole of lap one before he was overtaken by Falzon on the outside and Jones on the inside at the first corner of lap two.

Jones took the lead and at that point it was busyness as usual, after the local posted back-to-back sub 1:16 lap times to open a gap at the front from Falzon.

Race 2

Falzon took the lead into the opening turn of race two meaning Jones had to settle for second spot, with Hern following the pair in third.

It didn’t take long for Jones to claim the lead, and he began to put a gap on Falzon, while Hern, Henry, Hampton and Mutton were all bunched up behind them.

By the end of lap two there was still only a second between the top-two riders, however the gap to the field had blown out to four seconds.

Jones who never looked like doing anything other than taking the race win.

In the end it was a matter of how big the gap would be – Jones finishing a comfortable 13.448 seconds ahead of Falzon in second.
