Moto 2 – Position 10
A great start in the second Moto saw Waters climb into 4th and was charging for the Top 3 before he dropped the bike and lost his position.

Waters got back up and began to charge but unfortunately pushed too hard and dropped the bike again, and crossed the line in 10th.

Waters finished the weekend 9th overall, but remains 4th in the Championship with one round remaining.

Round 10 of the MX Nationals will be held on the 19th & 20th of August in Coolum, Queensland.

“WE HAD A BIT OF SHOCKER, IT JUST DIDN’T HAPPEN FOR ME THIS WEEKEND. MOTO 1 I HAD A PRETTY REGULAR START AND WENT BETWEEN 4TH AND 5TH AND THAT’S JUST WHERE I FINISHED. MOTO 2 I PUSHED PRETTY HARD INTO 4TH BUT KEPT DROPPING THE BIKE WHICH WAS PRETTY DEVASTATING. THANKS TO THE TEAM FOR BEING THERE AND EVERYONE FOR THEIR SUPPORT. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FINAL ROUND AT COOLUM AND HOPEFULLY FINISHING THE SEASON OFF ON A HIGH!”
