Ben Townley paying his dues before 2016 MXGP opener

Posted:

Team Suzuki World MXGP's Ben Townley has had another hit-out at the Valence International Motocross in France last Sunday paying some more dues and feeling his way back into European racing.

Track conditions were tough following poor weather during the last few weeks, but the pair of fourths gave the former MX2 World Champion a third place overall for the day. In the Super Final he was not so lucky after tangeling with Jeffery Hearlings and coming off second best.

It was another step forward for the Kiwi in the tough European conditions. ‰ÛÏComing back to Europe is not easy and the conditions are tough. It has been quite a challenge each weekend but I‰Ûªm improving every race," Townley said.

"I started quite slow, I couldn‰Ûªt follow the fast guys in Moto 1, but I got more used to the track in Moto 2 and could stay with them for some laps,‰Û
World Champion to World Champion. Team Manager Stefan Everts gives Ben Townley some words of wisdom.
