Todd Waters Bounces Back At Lommel With Strong 7th Place Finish

Posted:

Around the roughest and toughest track of the 2015 FIM Motocross World Championship tour Husqvarna Motorcycles‰Ûª best performing MXGP rider at Lommel was Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Todd Waters.

Putting the heavy crash at last weekend‰Ûªs GP of Czech Republic behind him, Waters went for it in the opening moto and was rewarded with a strong eighth for his efforts.

With the sandy Lommel track once again proving physically demanding, Waters knew the second moto would be a case of survival of the fittest.

Doing all he could to find the best lines, the Australia ended lap one in sixth ‰ÛÒ the exact position he would end the moto. Once again battling hard Waters rounded out the 14th GP of the 2015 season in seventh overall.

‰ÛÏI guess conditions don't get much rougher and tougher than they did today ‰ÛÒ it was brutal." Waters reflected. "I was happy with the way my qualifying race went, so I went for it at the start of the first moto.

"I was battling hard and put up a big fight, right to the end of the moto. I got onto the back of Van Horebeek and gave everything. It was obvious the second moto would be tough, so I tried to be smart.

"I dropped it once, but was pleased with my fitness. I pushed hard to fifth, then dropped one spot to Strijbos."

Competing alongside Waters in MXGP Dean Ferris and Nathan Watson experienced mixed results at Lommel.

Ferris overcame a 15th place result in moto one to secure a strong eighth in the second moto resulting in an 11th place finish overall for the Australian.
