1-2-3 for DPH Motorsport in MX Nationals

Posted:

DPH Motorsport has finished the 2017 MX Nationals with Maddy Brown taking the Women‰Ûªs Championship, Wilson Todd 2nd in MX2 and Kade Mosig with 3rd in the MX1 class for a hard fought 1-2-3.

All eyes were on the battle for the MX2 Championship after Wilson was given clearance to race after what can only be described as a controversial incident in Saturday‰Ûªs practice, resulting in a concussion for the Queenslander. Racing to a 3-2 finish, it was one sole mistake while leading the second moto that dropped Wilson to 2nd in the race and ultimately, the championship.

MX2 team mate, Hayden Mellross once again showed impressive speed leading the first moto and racing to 4th in the second, but an uncharacteristic mechanical DNF with a clutch issue ultimately dropped him to 16th overall, while Deakin Hellier went 15-13 in the 125 Amateur Cup on Saturday for 14th overall.

In the MX1 class, Mosig took a 4-6 result for 5th overall, cementing his 3rd place in the championship and his position as one of Australia‰Ûªs premier racers, while Maddy Brown took 1-1-1-2 results over her 4 races to take out the Women's Championship.

"A huge congratulations to Maddy for taking out the Womens Championship over the weekend," team owner Dale Hocking said. "She continues to prove herself and improve every time she jumps on the bike‰Û
Wilson Todd lead the MX2 class for 7 rounds but faltered in the final moto to lose the championship a few points.
Kade Mosig had his best finish of his career. "I put everything into this year. I felt like my preparation was great, and when I look back at the season, I'm happy with how I handled everything that was thrown at me, but I fell short of my personal goal" said Mosig.

'I'm so happy to give the team a podium in the championship, and to not only battle with, but beat factory teams is a great achievement, but I'm a racer, and I won't be satisfied unless I'm on the top step! I can't thank Dale, Pynee, our sponsors and the entire DPH team enough.‰Û

Hayden Mellross had a tough final round, "Congratulations to the team on the results this year, 1-2-3 in the respective classes is pretty impressive for a privateer race team, I hope come the final round of supercross I can add to the list of achievements! As for my races this weekend, things just didn't go my way. I had good speed, and great starts but I was just off the pace needed to win. It was definitely the right decision to race these last rounds as I've got some direction to keep working and really fire into the first supercross round.

For Maddy Brown it was the perfect weekend "I‰Ûªm so pumped to have that number 1 plate on the bike!! Jess (Moore) pushed me all the way this weekend, I think in one race we were almost a minute in front of 3rd, which just goes to show how hard we were pushing. 3 wins and 2nd, I just can't stop smiling right now!‰Û
Hayden Mellross returned from America to race the last few rounds.
