Todd Waters Happy To Get Opening Race Of 2015 Under His Belt

Posted:

Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing was in action at the opening round of the Internazionale d‰ÛªItalia over the weekend, at the Riola Sardo circuit in Sardinia.

With the vast majority of Europe‰Ûªs top riders and teams participating in the event, the race unofficially marked the opening of the 2015 international MX season. It was a hard test for all Husqvarna riders, whose strength and fitness was tested by the wet and sandy Sardinian terrain.

Australia's Todd Waters, experienced mixed performances crashing at the start of the MX1 race before finishing 15th, and 16th in the Elite final as he return to racing after basing his pre-season campaign at home in Queensland.

With only three weeks remaining until the official start of 2015 MXGP championship, Waters was glad to have gained valuable seat time around a track that proved challenging.

"‰ÛÏIt was a tough one for me." Waters reflected. "I‰Ûªm a little disappointed that things didn't go better than they did, but I‰Ûªm also pleased that the season has officially started.

"With all my training back in Australia done on hard pack it‰Ûªs been a bit of a shock to the system racing in sand. The track was pretty rough, I did the best I could but with some mistakes, some poor starts and a crash.

"I wasn‰Ûªt able to get the results I wanted. But I feel good, my bike is working great and now we‰Ûªre back racing the focus is on getting ready for the first GP.‰Û
