Q:5, 11th, 7th
Craig Anderson – "It is disappointing that I have to miss the Queensland rounds, however there really is no other option at this point. I am getting stronger, but can't take the risk of re-injuring myself. I plan to be back for the final three rounds."
Cody Cooper – "It would have been better to pick up a few more points at the last round to give me that edge on third place, but hopefully things will go my way this weekend."
Kade Mosig – "I'm feeling positive after finishing the last round in a better position. I'm rapt to be up to sixth overall, but I want to improve on that if I can."
Bec Lipsett – "It's been a long haul recovering from a back and neck injury that I had early on in the season, but I am getting stronger all the time and will do the best I can at this final round of the women's series. It has been disappointing in ways, but I have now left my job, and am going to be focus on racing 100% for a while."
