July 2nd see’s the MX Nationals fire back into action for round 6 of the 10 round series in Nowra for the Military round, paying tribute to those, past & present, that have served in the defence force. DPH Motorsport is proud to participate, and thanks to The Collective Family, will present military themed bikes for Wilson Todd & Kade Mosig to race for the weekend.
Racing a YZ450F in the MX1 class, Kade Mosig is determined to have a strong finish to the 2017 season. “Having a 5 week break in racing has been really good to take some time away from the bike, to reset and really focus on the final 5 rounds. I’ve spent a lot of time in recent weeks with multiple Australian Champion, Craig Anderson on both my riding and mind set and more confident than ever heading into Nowra” an upbeat Mosig said.
For YZ250F mounted, and MX2 class points leader, Wilson Todd the break couldn’t have come at a better time. “As most people know, I hurt my knee at round 4 and it affected how I rode at Murray Bridge, so being able to take some time to rest it before resuming training was really good. The last couple of weeks though I’ve been riding non-stop and I can’t wait to line up on the start line come Sunday!” said Todd.
MXGP WMX competitor Maddy Brown is back in Australia and ready to race the MX2 class this weekend: “After the French GP, I flew home and have been motivated to ride, racing and practising constantly. We’ve noticed when I race the guys that I have the speed, but they keep a real intensity throughout the whole moto, and that’s what I’ve been concentrating on. I can’t wait to get on the bike this weekend and race the best riders in Australia again” said Maddy.
Team owner, Dale Hocking: “The break’s been great for the entire team. Racing most weekends takes it’s toll so it’s been great to let everyone get some weekend family time before we head to Nowra and begin the second half of the season. Both Kade and Wilson used the break well, and we’re confident that we can keep exceeding expectations.”
Held at Braidwood Rd, Yerriyong, around 2 hours south of Sydney, round 6 of the MX Nationals gets underway at 8am, Sunday July 2. If you can’t get to the track make sure you follow our Facebook or Instagram pages or watch live at www.mxnationals.com.au
