A quick chat with Brenden Harrison

By: Aaryn Minerds

Posted: Wednesday, 7th March, 2012 - -




We caught up with Brenden Harrison a couple of weeks ago for a bit of a chat about his 2011 season, the ups and downs of his SuperX season and how he is recovering heading into the 2012 MX Nationals.

At this point in time Brenden currently still sidelined recovering from injuries and progressing with his rehabilitation Brenden is hoping to be back on his bike in the coming days and be ready to race at round one of the 2012 MX Nationals.

Fullnoise: Lets start by heading back to last year's MX Nationals series, you finished fourth overall for the year, how did you feel about your 2011 MX Season ?

Harrison: My Season was a little up and down last year, I was carrying an injury with my femur all year, I am definitely looking to build on my fourth place result and be on the top step at the end of the 2012 season.

Fullnoise : Your SuperX season also started off really well and seen you take your first overall win at round three in Campbelltown, how did it feel to get that first win under your belt.

Harrison: The SuperX season started really well, I started working with Jackie Louder who is a lady that has been helping me out a lot. Things were looking really good for Supercross, I could not have asked for any more out of the start of the season.


An overall round win at round three was the highlight of Brenden Harrison's 2012 SX Season.
 
I was still having a few issues with the leg, but that was not causing too many problems. I had some good results going then I managed to get my first overall win which was great, then straight away things turned pear shaped after that round with an average round at round four before a big crash at the final round of the season. Even with the crash and the bad end to the season , I still feel that I learned a lot and will be able to carry that experience into the next Supercross season.

Fullnoise : I don't want to focus too much on the crash, It happened right in front of the press box and was one of the nastiest crashes I have ever seen, can you remember anything at all about the crash, and what injuries to you sustain from that crash?

Harrison: (laughs) to be honest I can't remember anything from the crash, my first memory is waking up in the back of the Ambulance, I ended up with injury's to my neck and my hand. To make things worse I found out a couple of weeks after the crash that I needed to have my Femur re broken, I have been pretty much in recovery since then.

Fullnoise : I spoke to you early into the MX Nationals series and you mentioned that your Femur that you had previously broken was still giving you issues, what were the issues you were having and is it the reason why you needed to have it re broken?

Harrison: At that stage it was an issue just regarding my knee and Femur, we kind of got that sorted. I then had an issue with my femur going up into kind of my groin region, I didn't want to look like I was whining all the time so I rode it out.

It was not until near the end of the Supercross season that we organised a check up with the original guy who looked after my leg after the first surgery, he was not the surgeon who actually done the operation though. He organised a CT and that's when we found out that the bone was 39 degrees out and was actually touching my pelvis.

The only option really was to go in and re break it and straighten it, which was not what I wanted to hear. We made the decision quickly and since I could have it done at the same time as I was having the surgery from my neck injury we decided to get it done so I could go into this year as close to 100% and build on it from there.

Fullnoise : You have spent a lot of time in hospitals having surgery and rehabilitating during the off season then?


Harrison celebrates a heat race win.
 
Harrison: The off season has been a nightmare, I have had surgery twice, but both times have been for more than one thing, my last surgery on my hand, while they were there they also took some screws out of my knee. It was a late decision to have surgery on my hand, I was thinking about riding the first few rounds and seeing how it felt, but we made the decision to get the fixed 100%, it is the main reason I am not yet back on the bike.

I really do have to thank Steve and Sally Andrews along with Lawrie Malisano. they have organised and done so much for me, they have bent over backwards to get me and my body sorted.

Fullnoise : You are about to start your second straight year with the JDR KTM outfit, how does it feel to be with those guys again and how important is it to have a stable ride heading into the season?

Harrison: It is great to be back with those guys, I think it is the best team out there , they are like a big family, I get along with everyone on the team and it is the team to be on if you want a shot at winning a championship. I don't want to go anywhere , I am stoked to be here again for 2012 and I can't thank them enough for giving me another opportunity at chasing a title.

Fullnoise : You were looking at being a real threat to win the championship in 2012, on the back of such a rough off season and being sidelined with your preparation's for 2012 due to the injuries, what are your goals for the upcoming MX Nationals season.

Harrison: I will be a little bit behind the eight ball coming in, I'm not going to hide that, as long as I am there every weekend things will be fine. As I said I learnt a lot during the Supercross season and can take a lot from that which I am going to do, I am just going to worry about myself but I am sure I will be where I want to become the end of the season.

I am looking forward to the season, there is some good competition again in the Lites class and a change in format which I am looking forward to , I would like to race two long 35 min plus moto's, this year we have the back to back moto's then one long moto, I am stoked to have the long moto's back which makes me happy.

Fullnoise : Thanks for your time and good luck for the season.

Harrison: Cool thanks.
