Double Podium For DPH Motorsports in Adelaide

Posted:

With Hayden Mellross sidelined through injury, Wilson Todd picked up where he left off setting the pace and taking the SX2 victory for the DPH motorsports team at the third round of the 2017 Australian supercross championship held at Virginia in South Australia.

Todd was unstoppable all day long, topping the qualifying time sheets before going on to dominate the nights SX2 main event, running away to a comfortable win and in the process moving himself into second position in the championship standings.

"I've finally got that race win I've been chasing!" said Wilson. "I felt good today on track and I'm pumped to finally have some things fall my way.

"I had great starts all day, from my heat & Dash for Cash races to the Final, I was either first or in the lead group and from there, I was confident that I would be able to get in front and stay there. I'm now only 2 points off Gavin (Faith) in the Championship with 2 rounds to go!"

SX1 team-mate Kade Mosig who was down on luck at the opening two rounds, looked as though his streak of bad luck would continue early in the nights main event. Sitting in fourth position and looking for a way around Todd Waters, Mosig was left with no where to go after Waters crashed directly in front of him in a one lined sand section.

Slamming into the fallen bike, Mosig was able to somehow stay on his bike and quickly got himself back in the race, going on to finish in a sensational third place, taking the final step on the podium.

"I'm so happy to be on the podium! I've worked hard, and continue to push myself." Mosig commented. "I earned this 3rd place, I was pretty consistent in my approach all day, and managed to keep progressing and come the final, got myself into a strong position from the start and rode my own race.

"I can't wait to get to Sydney now for the Aus-X and an indoor race track!"

Team Owner, Dale Hocking could not have been more happy with his two chargers on the night.

‰ÛÏWe've said all season that if Wilson can get a start, he'll be a contender and he proved just that!" Hocking enthused. "All day, Wilson set the pace, and you could see that he was comfortable leading and in complete control.

"The entire DPH crew is pumped to see Kade finally get a result. He's one of the most determined, and hardest working racers out there and deserves that podium position". Hocking concluded.
