Great results for our THOR Athletes at round 8 of the MX Nationals held in Port McQuarrie NSW,
All riders debuting the fresh New 2018 Thor kits.
MX 2 DPH Motorsports rider Wilson Todd completed round 8 in second position over all in both races placing behind Egan Mastin, Todd still maintains his red plate after a very consistent ride for the day.
A change up for points in the MX2 Class has Todd gaining an extra 5 points over second position leaving Todd holding the red plate and 13 points ahead of Egan Mastin who is now in second position for the championship.
Consistent finishing the day overall in second position and holding onto that red plate, the points have changed up quite a lot and you have managed to pick up an extra 5 points over second position, Tables have turned as it was Mitchel Evans chasing your plate it looks like it will be set for tight racing between you Evans and Mastin. Does this place any different pressure upon yourself leading into the last round of MXN?
“No added pressure the plan is to win some races and as long as I win no one is closing the gap on me.”
How do you feel leading into the next two rounds? they are in your home state will you be moving home to train or continue your training here in Vic with the team?
“I feel good I have always done well at Toowoomba and Coolum and definitely want some Toowoomba redemption from last year along with a championship.”
MX1 DPH Motosports rider Kade Mosig had a great start to the day placing second in Moto one, close behind Dean Ferris.
Unfortunately, in moto two a minor crash in the first turn set him back a fair distance from the front pack, on the charge and determined Mosig created a close race where his position changed several times.
At the end of the race, Mosig powered through the stripe 5.245 seconds behind Kyle Peters and 10.196 seconds in front of (Thor athlete) Lachie Davis.
