BCP Honda rider Brad Matheson has wrapped up the Victorian State Supermoto Championships for the third year running this weekend gone with a commanding victory that saw the rider from Bairnsdale in Gippsland secure pole position in qualifying before going on to win three out of three in the points scoring races. And what made the effort even more impressive was the fact that Matheson was laying in hospital just eight weeks prior with a broken neck.
“I really wasn’t sure whether I’d even be able to try to defend the title this weekend,” said Matheson.
“It was touch and go as I only got back on the bike just over a week ago. I thought I’d just wait and see how good I felt before I made the decision but we slotted straight back into the swing of things. I’m stoked to be able to get my third championship in a row!”
BCP Honda Team owner Lee Hogan values the versatile rider who plays multiple roles for the company.
“Matho really is our ‘Jack of all Trades’ rider in the group,” said Hogan.
“He’s one of our main BCP coaches, he’s a very accomplished motocross racer and he can certainly ride the wheels off his Honda CRF450R Supermoto machine. He also runs his own Sign writing and Graphics company out of Gippsland called Eastern Signs and Designs so I rely on him for a lot of our graphic design.”
