Melbourne United Pit Stop

Melbourne United have stormed the beginning of their season, winning four games straight and are currently the highest scoring team in the NBL, capturing a new fan in 17-year old motorcycling prodigy, Remy Gardner. The eldest son of Australian motorcycling legend Wayne Gardner, Remy is the first Australian to take part in the Moto3 World Championship as a full-time entry, where he joins the CIP Team with a Mahindra bike and Japanese rider Tatsuki Suzuki as a team mate. Currently riding in his second Motor Grand Prix campaign, Gardner placed 10th in the race at Phillip Island last weekend. The international competition is considered a stepping stone for young riders to move up to the senior MotoGP and Gardner is set to follow in his famous father’s footsteps, who won the 1987 500cc Motorcycle World Championship. In the thick of the whirlwind tour, Gardner had a brief stopover in Melbourne and met with Stephen Holt, Daniel Kickert and Igor Hadziomerovic of Melbourne United before jetting off to Malaysia to continue on the MotoGP eighteen-race series. “It was really great to meet some of the Melbourne United boys and gain some insight in another sports field,” said Gardner. “There are definitely a lot of similarities in terms of the training commitments and travel demands, so it always helps to reach out and connect with other athletes that can relate to your lifestyle. “I’ve seen a couple of games so far this season and will definitely be watching the NBL from overseas. “The competition is really tight however Melbourne United are a shoe-in for the Championship, but it’s early days yet!” Melbourne United are looking to secure their name in NBL history books this year, as currently the highest scoring team in the League since switching to 40-minute games. Melbourne are averaging 92.3 points per game this season and will be looking to maintain their form tonight, hosting the Cairns Taipans at Hisense Arena from 7:30pm EDT.
