For Husqvarna‰Ûªs MXGP class riders the GP of Latvia proved to be a tough one.
With Max Nagl not competing as he works towards his return to racing at round 13 of the MXGP series in the Czech Republic, it was left to Australian‰Ûªs Dean Ferris and Todd Waters to lead the way.
Securing the best overall MXGP result for Husqvarna Ferris placed his Wilvo Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing machine in 10th overall while Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna factory Racing‰Ûªs Todd Waters placed two positions behind in 12th.
10th in moto one for Ferris and 10th in moto two for Waters were the best results from the Aussie pairing.
‰ÛÏI was really looking for more this weekend, especially after my strong results at the GP of Sweden." Ferris said. "The first race was really one-lined, which made it hard to pass.
"I started ok but near the end of the moto I dropped some position. The second moto was kind of the same. I was sixth, but dropped to 10th. My speed was good but that didn't translate into results this weekend.‰Û
