Successfully defending the number one plate, DPH Motorsport Husqvarna’s Wilson Todd has indicated his 2019 Pirelli MX Nationals MX2 crown holds greater meaning than his maiden title in the category last year.

Todd rode commandingly at Coolum’s double-header finale last weekend as the championship came down to the final moto, picking up two overall victories along the way.

The popular Queenslander faced a difficult title defence despite holding the red-plate for majority of the season, dealing with challengers from Kyle Webster (Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing) and Jay Wilson (Yamalube Yamaha Racing) for the prized number one.

“This one means a lot,” said Todd. “We did it a lot tougher [this season], and the boys rode good all year. We had a bad round at Murray Bridge and it closed it right up, but in the second half of the season, these guys were really on it, so it made it hard on us. We’re so glad to make it happen.

“It’s special, just like last year, but even more because it came down and it was really tight at the end. You go to bed and you have your demons speaking to you at night saying ‘this could happen, that could happen’, but we came out and everything went smoothly.”

It was an incredible weekend for the DPH outfit, picking up both the MX2 and MX1 titles, with Todd Waters also putting on a dominant display to earn the premier class crown.
