After a tough couple of weeks of training, practicing and racing, Tom Brennan rose to the occasion of the inaugural FIM Oceania Championship and bagged five points to his name. 

Brennan started off the meeting promisingly with two seconds and a third, beating international rivals Kyle Bickley, Fraser Bowes, Brayden McGuiness, Ben Cook and Victoria State silver medalist, Zane Keleher. This put Tom in the position to make the Semi-Finals of the toughest meeting he will face on his trip down-under. However, as the meeting progressed the Englishman faced his toughest opposition in Jack Holder and Dan Bewley. Tom started his remaining two rides from both gate one and gate four, putting him in a difficult position with track conditions. The young gun failed to score and therefore left him narrowly missing out on the Semi-Final's and finishing the meeting in 11th with 5 points. 

"It was a good and bad meeting for me in all honesty. I started off well in my first two heats and got close to a race win in my third when I was battling with Justin Sedgmen, but, I struggled as the meeting went on. When the dirt moves out I struggle to adapt my riding style as I don't have the strength to be in complete control if the bike grips, but, there's nothing I can do about it apart from keep working in the gym to build up the strength again which is what I'm going to do. I would like to thank my sponsors and everyone around me for their continued support and hopefully I'll be back to winning races in no time."
