Wilson Todd has left the fourth and fifth rounds of the 2019 Pirelli MX Nationals with his points lead intact after an eventful weekend for the Queenslander.
Admitting he is not a big fan of the Murray Bridge circuit and has struggled at the venue in the past, the MX2 points leader overcame a busted rear wheel on Sunday to leave South Australia and head into the mid-season break with a handy points leads over Kyle Webster in second.
"It was a tough weekend for me." TTodd reflected. "I don't like the Murray Bridge track all that much, and I haven't had the best results here. The two race wins over the weekend are the best results I've had.
"I rode a bit tight in the back-to-back races with some arm-pump so was really happy to turn that around with the win in the last race on Saturday. The first moto on Sunday saw me destroy a rear wheel while leading, and have to pull in for Pynee to swap it over, getting back on track in 18th. I managed to stay on the lead lap, put in the fastest lap of the race and finish 14th.
"Lining up for the last race I was motivated, got the start and led start to finish. It wasn't an ideal weekend, but I salvaged points in bad races, and I head into the break with a 23 point lead and a lot of confidence for the second half of the year." Todd concluded.
