Hard way to a QLD Title for Zak Small
Husqvarna factory Support rider Zak Small found what must count as one of the hardest routes to a title when he secured his career-first Sunshine State series premier class crown at Toowoomba‰Ûªs Echo Valley circuit at the weekend.

The 18-year-old builder‰Ûªs labourer from Bundaberg entered the last of five rounds with a 57-point lead in the MX1 category, and needed almost every point of that buffer after a big crash in the opening moto.

Brodie Downes made it a podium double for Husqvarna and Bundaberg‰Ûªs Mega Motorcycles dealership, finishing third overall aboard a Husqvarna FC 450.

For the newly crowned champion though, 100cc less was the perfect amount; ‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm definitely going to be riding the 350 next year as well. The power of the 350 suits me much better than a 450. A little bit more aggressive, it revs a bit more, and the weight difference to I like.‰Û

The highest placed Husqvarna-mounted Clubman rider in the MX1 and MX2 ranks takes home a $100 cash bonus each round, and in Toowoomba the Husky Clubman Cash went to Trae Kuehn in both the MX1 and Lites categories.

It was a successful Sunshine State Series for Kuehn, who came out overall victor in the club and MX1 category, defeating Kye Orchard and Conor Walton, as well as finishing fourth in the Clubman MX2 category.
