The Military Appreciation MX Nationals round in Nowra went down over the weekend, with Rival supported teams Factory Wilsons Cool Air Motul Suzuki and SD3 Husqvarna rocking Camo themed graphics.
Todd Waters – MX1 – 5th Overall – (5th, 4th)
“It was a bit of a disappointing day for me. In the first race we were riding well and I’d moved from seventh in to third, and was battling with Ferris when my chain came off – I actually managed to get it back on though and I salvaged fifth,” Waters explained.
“In the second race I just wasn’t up there. I’ve been doing the work, but my starts weren’t great today, even though I had the speed to be on the podium.
“We have a weekend off next weekend, so we just need to go back as a team and get everything sorted so we can move forward at the next round.”
Luke Wilson – MX1 – 20th Overall – (DNF, 12th)
“Today was a day to forget for me. I had some bike problems in qualifying which meant I had last gate pick all day and starts are really important at Nowra,” Wilson shared.
“After my DNF in moto one, I put the foot down in race two and got to tenth position which I was pretty happy with, but I made a couple of mistakes towards the end which lost me a couple of positions.
“Even though it wasn’t a great day, I’m still happy that I was able to get in to that top ten, and we’ll take the positives from round six and move forward to Conondale.”
Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki will now begin preparations for round seven of the 2016 Motul MX Nationals being held at Conondale on Sunday July 16.
