The MXGP of Italy will long be remembered as the raceat which Todd Waters claimed a career first podium result.


Third overall following fourth place results in each of the two MXGP motos, Todd showed exactly the type of form he’s been working so hard to regain following the broken leg that sidelined him during 2014.


Todd Waters – Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing:
“This is a huge result for me and the team. We worked really hard during the two weeks prior to thisrace, and I guess it paid off. I love racing in the mud, the conditions certainly didn’t faze me. To finish third overall is an amazing feeling. I felt good all the way through the first moto. I moved up from seventh or eighth to fourth, which was good. But I felt like I should have done better with the way I was racing. I wanted more from the second moto, and was third when I dropped it. The team told me a podium result was on about three quarters of the way though the race, so I went for it. I gave it everything and to get third is amazing. I have to say thanks to the team and my mechanics, it’s awesome.”
