MX NATIONALS ROUND 4 & 5 RECAP: SOLID RESULTS FOR DPH HUSQVARNA

Words: DPH Motorsport

Contesting ten races over two days in South Australia’s Murray Bridge for the first double-header race weekend of the MX Nationals, the entire DPH Husqvarna Factory Racing team worked hard to turn a less than ideal race weekend into solid results for each racers individual championship hopes. FC450 racer, Todd Waters took the overall win in Sundays round five, moving forward to third in the MX1 Championship.

“I WAS PREPARED TO RACE A LOAMY, SANDY MURRAY BRIDGE THIS WEEKEND, BUT DUE TO A LACK OF WATER, WE RACED ON A HARD, DRY TRACK AND I JUST STRUGGLED TO GET MY HEAD IN THE RIGHT SPACE ON SATURDAY. MY STARTS WEREN’T IDEAL, AND WITH A LOT OF FAST GUYS IN MX1 IT WAS TOUGH TO MOVE FORWARD. WITH A GOOD SLEEP AND A FRESH STATE OF MIND, I FELT A LOT BETTER ON-TRACK, MISSING SUPERPOLE BY JUST 0.001 OF A SECOND THEN RACING THROUGH TO TWO BACK-TO-BACK SECOND PLACES BEFORE GETTING A STRONG START AND TAKING THE WIN IN THE FINAL MOTO AND THE OVERALL FOR THE ROUND. IT WAS A GOOD WAY TO FINISH THE FIRST HALF OF THE SEASON. WITH A SEVEN WEEK BREAK IN THE CALENDAR, I’VE DECIDED THE BEST TRAINING I CAN DO IS TO RACE, SO I’LL HEAD TO THE US THIS WEEK WITH A SMALL ENTOURAGE OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO LINE UP AS A PRIVATEER AT THE FIRST THREE ROUNDS OF THE AMA OUTDOORS.”
