Kyle Peters sets focus on Shepparton following challenging weekend at Nowra
It was a bittersweet day for Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki‰Ûªs Kyle Peters, who fought hard to come back and salvage crucial championship points at Round 6 of the Motul MX Nationals at Nowra in New South Wales yesterday.

Peters who headed back home to the United States during the mid-season break to reset and recharge showed moments of positivity yesterday, and despite the results not showing on paper, the Factory Suzuki rider dug deep on the tight and technical circuit.

Despite having not raced a track like Nowra since he was a junior, Peters qualified just off the pace in seventh yesterday morning, and when the American lined up for race one, he was optimistic that he could turn things around. Unfortunately, a first turn pile-up in moto one saw Peters go down, but the Suzuki RM-Z 450 rider re-joined the talented pack and charged from 22nd all the way back to seventh.

After going down hard in moto one, Peters lined up in race two nursing a sore shoulder, however looked to snatch up as many points as possible. After getting a mid-pack start Peters salvaged ninth in the last race of the day, and with 7-9 moto results, concluded the tough outing at Nowra in eighth overall.

‰ÛÏIt was a difficult weekend for me, but there were some positives. Even though I went down in the first turn in moto one I fought back to seventh so that was somewhat of an achievement given the circumstances,‰Û
