Nathan Crawford made a strong return from Injury going 2-1-1 in the three rounds he contested.

Nathan Crawford continued his impressive return to racing after having missed the start of the season with another round win the MX2 class at the 2022 Australian Motocross Championship finale at Coolum, QLD.

Crawford, who missed the first five rounds of the season with a broken leg, quickly found form and has featured on the podium in all three rounds he has contested with a second place and two overall wins.

For the first time this year, a two-day format was used at Coolum, which saw Crawford qualify fifth fastest on Saturday with a 1m46.356s lap-time.

A clinical performance in the first moto saw him lead each lap en route to a dominant 12-second victory.

Choosing to play it safe in the second moto, Crawford led the opening laps before taking the chequered flag in second, comfortably securing him the overall victory.

Crawford went 1-2 at Coolum for the MX2 overall win, electing to sit back in the final moto with the overall already in the bag.

“I only got to come back for three rounds, but they were probably three of the most special rounds that I have had,” Crawford reflected. “It’s the biggest honour to work with a team like the KTM Racing Team – everybody in the group is second-to-none. I’m super-stoked at the results we can achieve and I put it down to those guys, sticking by me when I was injured. The first moto here was really good and the second moto I got a good start and led for the first 10 minutes or so. Then I realised it wasn’t anyone around me who was strong in the first moto, so I decided to take the high road and take a little bit less risk. I sort of sat back and let Levi [Rogers] go by and just rode it home for the overall,” Crawford concluded.

Crawford finished the 2022 Australian Motocross Championship in eleventh place having contested only three rounds out of the eight.
