Wilson Todd has made a successful return to racing following surgery at the third round of the British Motocross Championship at Canada Heights with the Australian finishing second overall.
After returning from arm pump surgery Todd finsihed second in the opening moto after qualifying third earlier in the day. A tougher start in race two meant putting in some hot laps on the difficult-to-pass track. the Bike It MTX Kawasaki rider moved from the bottom of the top 10 into 2nd, but Todd would eventually finish in 3rd position. Combined with the 2nd from the first race, Todd was able to secure second overall.
“A good day at the British Championship yesterday, I went in not really expecting a result after being off the bike for a while following my arm pump surgery – It was more about bike time ahead of the MXGP’s, so I surprised myself a little being out front most of moto 1,” Todd explained. “Unfortunately, I threw it away with a few mistakes towards the end of the race. Moto 2 started out further back and I had to work hard to pass the riders, but eventually finishing in 3rd with a lack of bike fitness I’m happy.”
Team manager, Steve Dixon added, “We saw some impressive riding from Wilson, so with some work on bike fitness, he’ll be a real force to be reckoned with now he doesn’t suffer from arm pump. The surgery clearly worked well, I’m glad Wilson trusted my choice of surgeon, Professor David Warwick. who was able to get him in at short notice and do a perfect job.”
