After sitting out most of the season with serious injuries, Nathan Crawford hit his best form completing a perfect 1-1 day at round seven of the 2022 ProMX championship in QLD.

After sitting on the sidelines for most of the season recovering from a broken leg Nathan Crawford’s return to racing culminated in a perfect weekend in only his second race back with a double MX2 win at round seven of the 2022 ProMX championship

Timed practice saw Crawford notch a 2m10.162s for sixth gate pick on what was a tricky track after heavy overnight rain left the Queensland Moto Park circuit in a very heavy state.

The 25-year-old launched to third for the opening half of moto one and, from there, showed strong pace throughout the remaining laps to slice his way to the front of the field and take an impressive 6.4s victory.

In moto two, the Queensland-based rider jumped to the holeshot and produced another clinical performance to claim the overall win with a perfect 50 points.

“I’m really happy to get this first win with the KTM Racing Team,” Crawford said. “The day sort of started off a little bit slow for me, I got sixth in qualifying which was obviously not ideal,” Crawford explained. “We sorted it out for the motos, made a couple of bike changes and got the double win. I pulled a holeshot in the last race, which made that race feel a lot easier. It was a really good day, I can’t really ask for much more – going 1-1 is basically perfect in our eyes, so keen to keep the ball rolling into Coolum next weekend.”

Crawford now shifts its attention to round eight of the 2022 Australian ProMX Championship at Coolum on 20-21 August.
