Wilson Todd Scores Season Best Result at MXGP of Garda

Posted:

A 7th and a 4th saw Australian Wilson Todd conclude the MXGP of Garda with his best result of the season.

Australian Wilson Todd has moved to within three points of a top-ten ranking in the FIM World MX2 Motocross Championship with two hard-charging rides to fifth overall at the MXGP of Garda.

Todd set himself up for a sparkling day in the Dolomite Mountains at Trentino in Italy after a solid seventh-fastest time in Qualifying by twice gating inside the top ten and in both motos he showed his talent with smart decisive moves to make passes stick around the switchback raceway in the shadow of the Italian Dolomites.

Tenth, then ninth, through the first half of moto one he showed his strength and determination throughout the second half of the race to eventually finish seventh and maintained that speed in race two.

Eighth after the first few turns he moved forward to sixth within ten minutes and continued to push forward to clinch fourth, his best result of the campaign, on the penultimate lap. The thirty-two points haul also earned fifth overall on the day and he heads to the final two rounds of the championship just three points shy of a top-ten world ranking at the end of the season.

“I felt good,” Todd said. “I was inside the top ten all day; Qualifying and both motos. I was coming forward, making passes to get into those positions. It’s an improvement; the more I race anywhere the more comfortable I feel. Two more to go, and I’m feeling confident,” Todd concluded.

Todd will be back in action when the championship makes the short journey south to the Tazio Nuvolari circuit in Mantova for rounds seventeen.
