Two-time Pirelli MX Nationals MX2 champion Wilson Todd has indicated he’s signed a deal for a ‘top team’ in the MX2 World Championship for the 2020 season.

The DPH Motorsport Husqvarna rider, who was recently crowned the 2019 Australian MX2 champion at Coolum, remained tight-lipped on the outfit that has secured his signature, however speculation has linked him to the Bike it Kawasaki Dixon Racing Team.

With the Australian Supercross Championship looming, the popular Queenslander reaffirmed his commitment to the series before shifting focus on his international career.

“I don’t how much I can say, but I’ve got a deal in Europe next year, and that’s about it,” Todd revealed to “I’m pretty happy – the team approached me, and it’s a top team, so it’s pretty cool. At the time I had the possibility of going to America with Troy Lee, but I got back to the guys [in Europe] and said I’ll do it.

“I’m staying here for supercross – I’ve got a job with Husqvarna and DPH, and that’s what we’re going to do – we’re going to do our best and try win that thing.”

Todd’s cemented future in Europe will see him join fellow Australians and former rivals Jed Beaton (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing) and Mitch Evans (Team Honda 114 Motorsport).
