Mixed Results For Todd Waters At A Rutted Bulgaria MXGP

Posted:

Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Todd Waters had a tough day out at the fifth round of the 2014 World Motocross Championships held in Bulgaria over the weekend.

The Australian struggled to find his form in race one, racing to a 16th place finish.

With the heavy rain turning the track into a mud bath in the second moto Waters picked up his pace. Fighting his way from 15th up to sixth position, Waters looked set to secure his best result of the season until another rider collided with him resulting in a costly crash.

Caked in mud, Waters slipped outside the top ten. Determined to finish the race on a high he battled his way back to eighth for 12th overall.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been one heck of a weekend." Waters admitted. "Rain on Saturday left the track with some massive ruts and it was really technical to ride. I was out of my comfort zone a little in race one trying to deal with the ruts but I gave it my best shot.

"Even though I don‰Ûªt get a lot of mud in Australia I had a lot of fun in race two. I got up as high as sixth but then crashed with another rider. Even though my gloves were caked in mud I kept pushing on and finished eighth.‰Û
