Crashes and Mechanical Issues Cost Waters In Mexico

Posted:

Under challenging track conditions Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Todd Waters delivered two trying moto results at the penultimate round of the 2015 World Motocross Championship at Leon.

A heavy rainstorm prior to race day in Mexico completely changed track conditions as Australia's Todd Waters looked to rebound from Saturday‰Ûªs qualifying race where he crashed heavily, trying to avoid a downed riders bike on the back side of a jump.

Starting inside the top 10 in MXGP moto one, the Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory 450 pilot battled his way up the rankings. Putting in consistent lap times the Australian was running fifth when a spark plug issue temporarily halted his progress.

Able to fix the problem Waters charged hard to cross the finish line in 11th.

Suffering a mid race crash in the second moto Waters placed 11th to finish 11th overall.

‰ÛÏI feel like I was able to do a lot more than I did this weekend." Waters said. "I love racing in muddy conditions and the first moto was going great for me.

"The track was a battleground ‰ÛÒ it was all about staying on the right lines, and trying not to get too roosted. I was moving forward when my bike stopped. I guess the mud and water caused the spark plug to come off. It took a while to fix it but the bike was fine afterwards.

"Finishing 11th was disappointing having been fifth. The second moto I felt like I rode well, but I dropped it when I was eighth so again I feel my result doesn't reflect how well I was riding.‰Û
