Dual Pirelli MX Nationals MX2 champion Wilson Todd was transported to hospital last night after suffering a heavy fall in the SX2 main event at Port Adelaide’s second round of the Australian Supercross Championship.

The DPH Motorsport Husqvarna rider, who was already battling with a rib injury that reaggravated at Brisbane’s opener, crashed heavily at the end of a rhythm section moments after relinquishing the lead during the initial laps of the encounter.

The Queenslander is suspected to have suffered an injury to his pelvis, prompting him to be hospitalised for further medical evaluation.

“From what they told us – he’s with Race Safe – but he’s in a bit of pain,” team manager Boyd Hocking told MotoOnline.com.au. “He’s stable and going to Royal Adelaide Hospital to get x-rays on his pelvis. He had a lot of assistance to get off the track, but he’s in a lot of pain. We don’t know too much more at the moment.”

Todd had shown great form throughout the night, qualifying sixth before finishing third in his heat race. The 21-year-old indicated in August that he has signed a deal to contest the 2020 MX2 World Championship.
