DPH Motorsport Set To Continue Maiden Title Hunt At Gympie
The Husqvarna DPH Motorsport team are ready to take aim at their maiden national championship success as the second half of the 2019 Pirelli MX Nationals heads to Gympie, Qld this Sunday the 23rd of June.

Choosing to continue racing in the off-season, Wilson Todd (currently leading MX2), and Todd Waters (currently third in MX1) both contested the opening rounds of the AMA Motocross in the USA, while Bailey Malkiewicz chose to knuckle down on his training program both in Australia, and in the US, in preparation to battle it out against Australia's best motocross racers in this weekend's sixth round of the championship in Gympie, QLD.

With rumours surfacing during the break that the team would not be on the line for the second half of the years, with wild speculation that Wilson Todd would head over to the Raceline KTM, while Waters would stay in the U.S, DPH team owner Dale Hocking has confirm that he has no intention of parking up the team halfway through the year and is confident that he the riders who are more than capable of bringing both the MX1 and MX2 titles at Coolum in August.

"We can't wait to go racing this weekend!" Hocking enthused. "I want to thank Boyd (Hocking) for stepping up to the plate once again to ensure that we're ready to race this weekend and give the team the best chance to perform in the second half of the season.

"After being a part of the DPH family for many years, Jarred (Pyne) has decided to move on, and so we wish him well in his future endeavours.

"All three racers have been doing a fantastic job through the first five rounds and have all used the mid-season break to set themselves up to be strong in the second half of the season. Gympie is somewhat of a clean slate, with no-one having raced it before, so we're looking forward to seeing some great racing."

After showing he has what it takes to run inside the top ten in the U.S, MX2 points leader and reigning champion Wilson Todd is ready to defend his red plate starting this weekend.

"What a season break! Thanks to some of our team partners, I was able to get a last-minute ride in the US, and that really keep my momentum going from the first half of the season." Todd commented.

"Now I'm back, and turning my attention straight back to racing the FC250 this weekend. I feel good, and I feel fast. I really love racing my bike and just want to get back on the DPH Husqvarna and get to work."

Waters who also raced in the U.S during the break, but in the 450 class showed he is still a world class talent running just outside the top ten on privateer equipment. Now back in Australia, Waters has his eyes firmly set on capturing his maiden Australian senior motocross championship.

"My USA trip really was unbelievable." Waters explained. "It's extremely rare to be able to spend three weeks living in a RV with your family and racing professional motocross on the opposite side of the world. It really has been a dream come true!

"My FC450 didn't miss a beat, and although I'm always working to move forward and improve, I'm happy that I got to show that I have the pace to run with the best in the world, and even better, we did it as a family on a shoe-string budget.

"Heading into round six, my confidence is high, and I know that I can put the DPH Husqvarna at the front of the field."
