Townley made a triumphant return to the podium in what was his first national Australian Motocross event in nearly twelve months, winning the opening MX1 moto and claiming third overall for the round.

The 2004 World Motocross Champion‰Ûªs new video ‰Û÷Full Circle‰Ûª shows that he still has the drive and ability to be competitive.
