DPH Motorsport Husqvarna rider to don red-plate this weekend.
Following an inspiring last-to-first performance in brutal conditions at Appin’s season-opener, Todd Waters is still unsure of where he ranks in the MX1 field as the Pirelli MX Nationals heads to Wonthaggi in Victoria this weekend.
A shortened schedule at round one due to the horrendous conditions served up a number of surprises on the results sheets, with the mud-filled encounter denying riders and fans of an all-out showdown amongst the premier class’ heavy-hitters.
While rain is predicted in the lead up to Sunday’s second stop of the 10-round series, the Wonthaggi venue is set offer conditions that will promote intense and hard-fought racing.
“Unfortunately the weather is not what everyone wanted for the first round – we all wanted to showcase what we’ve been working on,” Waters explained to MotoOnline.com.au. “I’ve had a great pre-season and I’m back with Husqvarna – I was super excited for the first round, but the skies opened up and it was a mud-hole.
“It’s nice to come away with the win, but we still don’t really know where we’re at. I’m looking forward to Wonthaggi and seeing how we go against everyone.”
The DPH Motorsport Husqvarna talent will don the red-plate on his FC 450, as he currently leads Hayden Mellross (Raceline KTM Thor) and Kirk Gibbs (CDR Yamaha Monster Energy) in the standings.
