DPH Motorsport Husqvarna Factory Racing press release:
The third round of the ten round MX Nationals championship heads to one of Australia’s most iconic motocross tracks – Broadford. Last raced by the national championship in 2016, the Broadford circuit has hosted the most prestigious events in Australian motocross history including Mister Motocross and rounds of the World Motocross Championship in 2000 and 2001.
The DPH Husqvarna Factory Racing team is confident that their three-rider line-up of Todd Waters (MX1 – FC450), Wilson Todd (MX2 – FC250) and Bailey Malkiewicz (MX2 – FC250) will continue to build on the momentum from the first two rounds.
Dale Hocking, DPH Husqvarna team owner: “It’s great to be going back to Broadfoard. It’s an iconic location and I’m glad to see it back on the racing calendar. All three riders have been putting the effort in and I’m sure that we’ll see more strong results this weekend. It’s been an unusual start to the year, but everyone has ridden smart, banking good points that they’re undoubtedly going to need come the end of the season and I think WEM have done a great job in tough situations, as well as working to make the racing more entertaining with the sprint race format, while also remaining fair on the riders.”
Todd Waters: “I’m pretty excited to race at Broadford again, I’ve raced there a lot over the years, and took a race win last time I rode there in 2016. I’m super comfortable on the bike and my pre-season training, along with the results at the first two rounds gives me a lot of confidence going in. The sprint race format will mix things up, but I’m prepared, and know that I can use this weekend to build some momentum. I’m really happy how things have worked this year, DPH really are giving me everything I need to succeed and I’m lucky to have some great brands behind me such as Snap-On, Berry Sweet, Froma, Asterisk, TLD, M2R and Oakley along with all the team partners, so thank you all for your support.”
Wilson Todd: “I’ve had good results at Broadford before, and with our (MX2) races going back to a traditional two-race format this weekend, I know I can keep putting myself in good positions. I’m out here to win races, but if things don’t go my way, I always have the championship in my mind and I’ll do whatever I have to do to get it.”
Bailey Malkiewicz: “I feel good at the moment. I’m having a lot of fun riding the FC250, and my results are heading in the right direction on race day. Training off the bike for a few days before getting back on and putting some laps in has really made me hungry to ride and race this weekend. I’ve only ridden the track at Broadford once and it was really fun, so I’m confident I can keep improving my results.”
