Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team‰Ûªs Dylan Long and Jay Wilson raced to consistent results despite wet and muddy track conditions, at Round 7 of the 2016 Motul MX Nationals at Conondale in Queensland over the weekend.
With the Green Park venue soaking up the rain throughout Saturday night, when Long and Wilson arrived at the track for racing on Sunday, they were treated to a circuit holding plenty of moisture, and when bikes headed out for qualifying Long took to the conditions well, making it through to a second consecutive GoPro Superpole, where he finished in fifth due to a crash, while Wilson qualified in 6th position.
In moto one, Dylan Long launched out of the gates, snatching up the the first holeshot of the day, however a few small mistakes saw him drop back to 6th position by the end of the moto. In moto two, Long, was consistent once again - fighting through pain in his injured thumb to wrap up the final race of the day in 6th place. With 6,6 finishes Long wrapped up the round in 6th overall.
‰ÛÏIt was a bit of a tough day today. I was really happy to get in to GoPro Superpole again, but I crashed on my hot lap and that forced me to have to settle for fifth gate pick,‰Û
