WIlson Todd will step up to the MX1 class and also try for the few points he needs to wrap up the MX2 Class Championship.

It will be a full house at round seven of the Australian Pro MX Championship with three MX1 riders filling the Factory Honda tent at round seven of the Australian Pro MX Championship.

Wilson Todd will race a CRF450R in an Australian Pro MX round for the first time in his career this weekend at Queensland Moto Park, QLD, this weekend.

Todd holds a 98-point advantage over his nearest competitor in the MX2 class so is also entered to compete in that class as well and will do what is required to win the championship.

Todd has been bust testing between rounds to gain more familiarity with the 450.

“I asked the team if I could race the CRF450R,” explained Todd. “It is something that I want to do before I head back overseas to compete. I am mindful that I have not won the MX2 championship, but I am taking my first MX1 national seriously. The team and I have been testing and I have been on the new CRF450R since Coffs Harbor. I will qualify for both classes and will do what is required to win the MX2 championship”

In another positive step for the team, Kyle Webster will return from injury. The overall winner of round two is excited to race again and taking a mature approach to his return.

“I am glad to be on the bike and preparing to race again. I’m looking forward to a gate drop,” Webster enthused. “I do not know where I am at against my competition – I will take each race and each lap as it comes.”

Dean Ferris is currently second in the MX1 series and, after dominating round six, has his sights set on standing atop the podium again on Sunday. Ferris is riding a wave of momentum now – he also claimed the Queensland title this past weekend.

“I have been focusing on my riding and recovery, so my preparation is on schedule,” commented Ferris. “All I can do is focus on each race. I will give it my all to win this championship – that’s all I can control.”

Factory Honda’s team director, Yarrive Konsky, noted that the team is focused on the final two rounds and has maintained its commitment to testing and preparing. Completing what has been an extremely successful term in the right fashion remains the priority.

“We have not won either championship yet and we are doing everything we can to contend for the overall in both classes. Everyone has been working hard and selflessly putting the team and riders first. I’m proud of everyone’s discipline and commitment. No one has stopped or slowed, and we will fight to the end,” said Konsky.

Unfortunately, MX3 rider Cambell Williams injured his shoulder and will miss the remainder of the championship.
