Main Event – Position 3

Waters began the Victorian Supercross Round on a high, qualifying  3rd in the second lot of SX1 heats.

Waters had a great start to the main event, battling with teammate Luke Clout, during the exchanges for position Waters made a small  mistake on the slick track conditions which caused him to loose a number of positions.

Despite loosing a number of positions from his mistake, Waters continued to push forward though the field picking off riders one by one whilst focusing on producing clean laps to get into 3rd and onto the podium.

Waters was happy with his result after proclaiming that he didn’t think he rode well, and is looking forward to the 3rd Round in Virgina, South Australia.

“BIT OF A TRICKY ONE, I STRUGGLED ALL DAY WITH MY KNEE INJURY. 3RD IN QUALIFYING GAVE ME A REASONABLE GATE PICK AND A I HAD A GOOD START. THE TRACK WAS SUPER SLICK SO AFTER GOING DOWN I RODE AT 70% TO MAKE SURE I MADE EVERY JUMP AND HAD CLEAN LAPS. IT GOT ME ON THE PODIUM AND I’M STOKED CONSIDERING MY INJURY AND I DIDN’T THINK I DID THAT WELL. AS ALWAYS A MASSIVE THANKS TO THE TEAM AND EVERYONE FOR HELPING ME OUT.”
