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."
