Suspected broken collarbone for Todd Waters

Posted:

Cougar Bourbon Honda Thor Racing rider Todd Waters fell victim to Toowoomba's Echo Valley circuit at Round 4 of the Rockstar Energy Drink MX Nationals today.

Waters finished second in the first moto but crashed heavily in the second Pro Open race and was taken to hospital with a suspected broken collarbone.

The red plate holder, who held a 13-point championship lead coming into this round, now sits third in the standings on 171 points.

"I am really disappointed, I was feeling good and had a great first race where I challenged Billy (McKenzie) for lead," Waters explained.

"The second race just didn't go to plan, I crashed and ended up last then pushed too hard as I was coming through and crashed again, landing awkwardly on my shoulder.

"We will see what the doctor has to say but I am going to do everything I can to make the next event at Newcastle," he said.

Team-mate Michael Phillips also struggled on the hilly Toowoomba circuit and finished the round 14th overall.

The New Zealander, who finished fourth in the final Pro Lites race acknowledged he let himself down with some silly mistakes.

"My starts were positive and the bike is great, I just let myself down with some silly mistakes," Phillips said.

"I was happy with the last race, I showed that with a bit of aggression I can definitely get up there.

"I have some homework to do before Newcastle but I can't dwell on today, I need to focus on making sure I don‰Ûªt make the same mistakes again," he concluded. May.
