Queenslander leads the pack

MELBOURRNE ? Queenslander Andrew McFarlane has become the first Australian motorcycle racer in 15 years to lead the motocross world championship.

The 27-year-old shot to the top of the points table when he claimed the seventh round of the series at Matchams Park in England at the weekend. Shrugging off miserable cold and wet conditions, the pugnacious Yamaha rider seized his third round win this year by notching a second and first in the two 40-minute races. The last Australian to lead the championship was West Australian Jeff Leisk in 1989.
