Like many of the top motocross riders around the country at the moment Todd Waters is busy preparing for the 2012 Monster Energy MX Nationals.
"I am getting ready for the nationals at the moment spending a lot of time training, and travelling, I have been doing a heap of travelling lately." said Waters
"We have been doing a lot of testing out at Coonabarabran and Appin, I have been spending a heap of time testing with Jay Foreman which has been good, he has been opened minded about everything which helps to make testing easy. He continued.
Queensland Born Waters had spent the past three years aboard Honda machinery before making the switch to the Motul Pirelli Suzuki team for 2012, like all riders who change teams, Waters is spending that little bit of extra time needed adapting to his new ride.
"The team has made the switch easy on me, obviously it is a new team for me, so it will take a little time to get the bike where I want it, I spent three years on the Honda, so each year was pretty simple, we could go off our base setting from the year before. This year we had to start from scratch, so we had a lot of work to do."
"The bike itself is really nice, and the team already had them well set up which made things a lot easier, testing with the team really has been going great, we have spent a lot of time setting up the bike and are in a happy place now." added the 21 year old
