Pirelli MX Nationals Opener at Appin Holds No Fear For Serco Yamaha Duo

Posted:

New Serco Yamaha recruit Aaron Tanti has plenty of experience around the rutty Appin circuit.
The clay based, rut infested Appin circuit holds no fear for the Serco Yamaha team riders of Nathan Crawford and Aaron Tanti as they look to get their Pirelli MX Nationals campaigns under way this weekend as the 10 round championship thunders into life.

Yamaha‰Ûªs official MX2 supported team are ready to go with both Crawford and Tanti performed well at the Appin circuit in the past, they are keen to get their championship chase off to a great start and look forward to a challenging weekend of racing ahead..

Aaron Tanti, the new recruit to the Serco Yamaha fold for 2019, as done plenty of laps around the Appin track having lived in the Sydney region for years. Despite now being based in Queensland and closer to his teams‰Ûª base, Tanti knows Appin like the back of his hand and is looking forward to getting the championship underway at a familiar venue and surrounded by friends and family.

‰ÛÏAs a junior rider, I raced Appin a lot although the track is never the same and develops a lot differently when it comes to the MX Nationals,‰Û
Nathan Crawford is back to full fitness and focused on a solid year ahead.
And returning to the race track and the MX Nationals since round three in 2018 is Nathan Crawford who has had to deal with a string of injures but is now riding and training his way back to full fitness. Crawford battled a shoulder injury and then a leg issue through the 2018 season but was given the doctors all clear to get back on the bike in February and has been chipping away at getting his body back to full strength.

And Appin has certainly proved a happy hunting ground for Crawford, as he won the corresponding round last year with a dominant 1-1 display, a result he would love to replicate this weekend. But he is also aware that getting through the round and regaining confidence in his body and racing is the big picture here.

‰ÛÏI was off the bike for nearly eight months and its awesome to be back and getting ready to go to round one,‰Û
Nathan Crawford is back to full fitness and focused on a solid year ahead.
