Main Event – Position 5

Queensland hosted the opening round of the Australian Supercross Championship which presented some challenges, with the hot and normally basic Jimboomba track turning technical after it baked in the heat.

Waters qualified 3rd after fighting for 2nd with Mosig in his heat race.

In the main event Waters had a mistimed start and fell back at the first turn into second last, but was able to fight from the back-end of the stacked class into 5th by the end of the Race.

A strong Race was rated decent by Waters himself, but he believes he has a lot left for the rest of the season and will be bringing higher intensity and fight to the next round to aim for the podium.

“UNFORTUNATELY I MISTIMED THE START SO COMING INTO THE FIRST TURN I FELL TO SECOND-LAST BUT MANAGED TO GET BACK INTO 5TH. I FEEL LIKE I RODE WELL BUT WE’VE GOT PLENTY LEFT IN US SO I HAVE 3 WEEKS OFF NOW TO WORK ON INTENSITY AND FIGHT. THE AIM FOR NEXT ROUND WILL BE A PODIUM.”
