Ben Townley back in the USA and ready to go

Posted:

Kiwi Ben Townley has returned to America to resume racing in the Lucas Oils AMA Motocross Championship with the Troy Lee Honda team after a long stint on the sidelines with injury.

"I'm back in America now, have been for the past 2 weeks riding and testing," the former World Champion said.

"I spent my first week testing in California with my mechanic Clint and my team, going through chassis set up and getting me dialed in for the season. We had our time line slashed way to short after I had my little mishap back home in NZ, but we made really good progress and found a really good set up. I'm headed back to Cali today for a warm up race at Glen Helen, it will give me a good chance to shake down the set up we finished up with and give me some valuable gate time before I line up next weekend in Hangtown.

"I spent this past week doing moto's back here in Florida, I feel great on the bike, conditioning wise I lost a lot with the 6 weeks that I had to stand down so I'll be working my way back into shape as this championship kicks off. It feel's awesome to know that the season is right around the corner now, it's been a really really long time coming for me and I'm excited to prep my gate in 14 days time from now it's going to be an interesting series...'" he conculded.
