Ben Townley Not Happy Despite Most Consistent Result Of 2016
Ben Townley posted two seventh place moto results at the Talkessel circuit in Teutschenthal for the Grand Prix of Germany and round seven of the 2016 FIM Motocross World Championship on another weekend of progress and perseverance for Team Suzuki World MXGP.

Sunshine and a strong breeze graced raceday at Teutschenthal and where a large crowd sought a vantage point around the banked spectator zones, creating a ‰Û÷pit‰Ûª of noise as the narrow and largely off-cambered layout snaked around the facility.

Freshly watered hard-pack, deep ruts and later dust in the second motos were just some of the conditions the Grand Prix riders had to face but the terrain offered a degree of line choice and variation.

Townley entered the start gate with the 17th pick of the gate after a tough qualifying race on Saturday.

Townley ‰ÛÒ as he would in the second moto also ‰ÛÒ weathered a mediocre start and set about gaining the ground and positions he could to arrive to seventh.

The New Zealander coped with rocks and roost and repeated the ranking later in the day for his most consistent outing of the season so far.

‰ÛÏIt is positive to keep strong for two motos without any major hiccups. My expectations and what is reality is not the same right now so I‰Ûªm not happy." " Townley commented at the conclusion of the weekend. "

"My mistake yesterday hurt me majorly for the starts. I had to fight for the top 10 from deep [in the pack] in the first laps and made multiple passes.


"I made hard work for myself and need to clean up my Saturdays to get in a better place for Sunday. The second moto was better and in the last two laps I thought I was going to get Max. It is not all fairy tales; it is a brutal sport!‰Û
