Young Husqvarna Racers To Chase Hard As MX Nats Continue At Nowra

Posted:

There might only be three rounds of this year's Monster Energy MX Nationals left, but Husqvarna‰Ûªs Factory Support squad riders are still hungrily chasing their goals, and chasing them hard.

This weekend's eighth round of the championship visits Nowra, south-west of Sydney, as the national championship enters its final month.

Husqvarna FC 450 rider Jesse Dobson seems to have got the better of some up-and-down mid-season fortunes, and despite wrestling a bout of flu, the Sunshine Coast youngster will confidently chase his goal of a premier class podium this weekend.

‰ÛÏLast week I got some solid days in, but coming down with this flu has kind of sucked a little bit, I haven't got too much training in." Dobson said. "But I know that I am strong and fit for this weekend and I'm going to be ready to go whether I‰Ûªm sick or not, and still want to do the same job - push for a podium.

"I know that the speed is there, so we've just got to put it all together. After the last round I feel hungrier than ever and I really want to get on the podium before the season is out.

"Last round it was good to run up front there for a bit, starts have still been real poor, but I‰Ûªm making quick work of getting up there, so hopefully we can bring that mindset into this weekend, get a good start and put it on the box. I believe I can, for sure.‰Û

Nathan Crawford has endured his fair share of challenges this year but showed plenty of competitive speed last time out the board his Husqvarna FC 250, and the exciting MX2 rookie relishes the chance to take further positive steps this weekend.

‰ÛÏI haven't been to Nowra before so I‰Ûªm just coming in with an open mind." Crawford said. "With a little more consistent results this time hopefully I can get on the box, last time I went 3, 4 for 5th overall so hopefully the results aren‰Ûªt so mixed up this time.

"I‰Ûªve been making it a bit tough for myself lately, but the speed hasn't been the issue. I just need to sort out a few little things here and there and that'll make up for all the mistakes I‰Ûªve been making.‰Û
