The championships consisted of five round series with Port Lincoln hosting the first round followed by Murray Bridge, Gillman, Keith and Renmark.

The tracks were demanding and challenging and the tough weather conditions from mother nature varied from sunny days to heavy rains and wild winds.

The toughest round was the second at Murray Bridge where rider Tyler Lange from Loxton had a horrific crash.

The rest of the day was cancelled and Tyler died five days later.

Tyler was considered a great mate to all the motocross family and everyone loved him.
