Australian Championships: Double figure haul for Masters, while Tungate grabs third in Round Four!

Oxford Spires’ Rohan Tungate is one of four riders who can still mathematically win the Australian Championship following Round Four of the series in Mildura today.

The 33-year-old former champ ended Round Four with 13 points after finishing third in the meeting’s Grand Final which was won by Brady Kurtz.

The result means championship leader Max Fricke, Tungate plus Jack Holder and Jaimon Lidsey enter Saturday’s finale still in with a mathematical chance of winning the top prize.

Sam Masters was also among the points in Mildura, scoring 10 points from five rides. It means the Cheetahs number one is tied in seventh on 34 points overall with Josh Pickering.

Australian Championship Standings after Round Four:

Max Fricke 59, Rohan Tungate 54, Jack Holder 48, Jaimon Lidsey 48, Brady Kurtz 40, Ryan Douglas 36, Josh Pickering 34, Sam Masters 34, Ben Cook 32, Chris Holder 31, Zach Cook 24, Keynan Rew 17, James Pearson 15, Justin Sedgmen 9, Fraser Bowes 8, Michael West 7, Tate Zischke 5, Jye Etheridge 4, Jack Morrison 3.
