Great starts but costly errors crushed any hopes of a successful MXGP in France.


Todd Waters endured a GP of highs and lows. Starting well in both MXGP races, crashes in both motos saw the Red Bull IceOne rider struggling to find his rhythm with the Australian coming home in 12th and 13th.


Todd Waters – Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing:
“I got two good starts – a great start in the second moto – but also crashed in both races. It’s frustrating, it is so hard to get up and get back into a good rhythm once you’ve been off. In the first race I was around seventh off the start and I was pushing hard. Once I crashed I found it really hard to get into my groove again. I was second behind Max off the start in moto two and felt good. I dropped a spot to Bobryshev but was still right up there, then I came together with Ferris and like the first moto couldn’t get into it after that.”
