For Nathan Crawford, he also experienced a mixed weekend but saved the best for last when he leapt from the blocks in the final moto and slotted into third place. He worked hard the entire moto and was able to equal his best moto finish for the year, taking a third place.
The first half of the season has been tough on Crawford as the back to back injuries he suffered in 2018 took a huge toll on his body. Eight months off a bike is a lot to overcome in a short period of time but he made it through the first half of the season healthy and now sits fourth overall in the championship with plenty of racing still to come.
‰ÛÏMurray bridge is a track I like and have done well at in the past but I wasn‰Ûªt getting good starts on the weekend and a lot of the riders were running a similar speed so it was difficult to move forward. I was able to get a better start in the final race and it made all the difference as I kept on the leaders‰Ûª pace and was close to the lead at the end of the 20 minute moto.
‰ÛÏThe break gives me some time to reset a little and get my body stronger. The last five rounds have some demanding tracks, so I will get come extra conditioning in and the more seat time will only benefit me.
‰ÛÏI will keep fighting and my goal is to win a round before the end of the season,‰Û
