Round 5 of the MX Nationals has been run and won in Murray Bridge, South Australia. It was a weekend to remember for the DPH Motorsport Husqvarna Factory Racing Team with MX1 racer Kade Mosig taking a race win in the premier class. Finishing to 9-1 put Mosig third overall for the round while Dylan Wills’ 5-7 finishes gives him sixth overall in MX2.
FC450 Racer Kade Mosig: “Wanting to build from round 4, I was very motivated coming into today. I really like the Murray Bridge circuit. It’s a great track and I qualified fourth, only a fraction off the lead and I was happy with my pace. Moto 1, I blew the start and I rode really loose to get through, settling with the lead pack in fifth but I got some dirt in my goggles and made a big mistake dropping a few positions and coming home in ninth. I knew I had to lay it all on the line for moto 2 if I was getting back up on that podium. Finally, a holeshot in the second race, had some fresh air, got to put down my laps and charge. Around the halfway point in the moto, I really tried to up my pace and respond to Ferris putting a charge on me. Pyney held out +3 seconds on the pit board and I had some breathing room, the lappers were heavy and I made a couple of mistakes and the race was on to the finish. I was feeling very dialled in on my Husqvarna 450 and I rode it out to my first win for the year! What a feeling! Huge thanks to all of the DPH team and sponsors that make it possible! A big thanks to Craig Anderson for his help with my riding and all of my family for always having my back!”
FC250 Racer Dylan Wills: “Bitter sweet day today. I feel like everything is there and my riding was great. Just once again struggled to put it together with a silly crash in each moto. We’ll keep working hard and repay the team and myself for the hard work we put in!”
DPH Husqvarna team owner Dale Hocking: “Heading into the race weekend we were confident of a good result, so to take a race win feels amazing. Kade’s riding is strong and it was a dominant ride in the second race leading from start to finish, and although Dylan’s results don’t show it, he’s improving every time he’s out on track, showing impressive speed, and just a few small mistakes pushing him back down the finishing order. The break in the season is an opportunity for us to refine what we’re doing, analyse the first five rounds and prepare to fire into the second half of the season.”
