DPH Motorsport Yamaha MX1 newcomer Kade Mosig has confessed his fourth place finish in Broadford’s Monster Energy MX Nationals round came as no real surprise, comfortable within the professional privateer team.

Mosig starred on his way to 5-5-7 results upon debut in his first full season of MX1 since 2007, signalling a revival of sorts after an injury-affected couple of seasons in MX2.

The DPH team was late in coming together after signing Mosig alongside Sam Martin with Yamaha support, but it’s already cementing itself as an ideal development squad for emerging talent in the 450 ranks.

“I’m really happy with the weekends result,” Mosig commented. “Obviously I didn’t have the most ideal lead up, but in the short amount of time we have had to get ready for round one, I’m really happy with the bike and the whole team’s setup.

“My result wasn’t a massive surprise to me, but at the same time, not having the preparation I wanted under my belt, meant I wasn’t sure where I was going to be.

“I go to the races with a goal, and on the weekend I achieved some personal goals that I set for myself. I wanted to be inside that top five group of riders, and I believe I should definitely be up there battling with those guys.”

Meanwhile Martin had a mixed day as he battles ongoing knee problems and a lack of bike fitness after an assortment of off-season injuries, racing to 9-16-11 finishes for 12th overall.
