Nathan Crawford and Wilson Todd star at Qld State Motocross Titles

Posted:

The Yamaha Junior Racing duo of Nathan Crawford and Wilson Todd dominated proceedings at the Yamaha Queensland Motocross Championships held in tropical Townsville Under clear blue skies and balmy winter weather.

Out of the 12 races the duo contested over the weekend the pair won all 12, winning the 15 years 250cc, 13-14 years 250cc and a 1-2 finish in the 13-15 years 125cc.

Crawford took all four race wins in the 15 years 250cc and leaves his last year as a junior racer with the Queensland number 1 plate. Crawford was in top form throughout the three day event, charging through the pack or taking wire to wire wins over some good competition.

Wilson Todd matched the efforts of his team mate in the 13 ‰ÛÒ 14 years 250cc also winning each of the four races in convincing fashion. Todd took control of each race in the early going and was a cut above his rivals.

But both riders were pitted together in the 13-15 years 125cc and like every other event this year, the pair produced some great racing. Todd won the first moto, Crawford bounced back for wins in races two and three, with Todd taking the last one.

The only result separating the pair was a fall in race three for Todd saw him finish that race in third place and as a result Crawford took his second championship with 2-1-1-2 scores just two points over Todd with 1-2-3-1 results.

Todd also praised his teammate in a great show of sportsmanship.

‰ÛÏCongratulations to Nato on his win on the 125. It came down to who ever made the least mistakes and he got through the weekend without any issues so he deserves the championship." Todd admitted.

‰ÛÏThis is my first year on the250 and I love riding it. I never expected the results I‰Ûªm getting on it and every time I ride a different track I learn something new.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been a great year so far and the Yamaha Junior Racing team has been awesome. I have been with them for nearly five years now and every year it keeps getting better. I also owe my parents and family a big thank you for their support of my racing,‰Û
