The Factory Honda team have been busy between rounds with team riders testing and competing in state events.
Dean Ferris raced and won the Sunny State round in Coolum and Cambell Williams finished 4th in the PRO MX2 class in the South Australian round.
Ferris feels that he is making positive steps forward in his return to full time competition.
“Following MacKay, we have done further testing and I got to race in Coolum, I am positive we have made some positive improvements, I am getting stronger and fitter and I am excited to line up in Albury this weekend”, said Ferris.
Cambell Williams is also feeling stronger following a shoulder injury he sustained at the start of the season, Williams leads the MX3 championship.
“Round 2 was tough, my shoulder was sore. This past month has been great, I have steadily been able to train properly off the bike and I feel stronger and more ready. We did some suspension testing. Previously it was hard as I wasn’t strong enough. I feel more prepared going into round 3, that’s for sure”, said Williams.
Current MX2 championship points leader Wilson Todd has maintained his program in between rounds, he travelled to the team’s base in Melbourne early this week to continue his training as he was rained out at home in Cairns.
“I have been doing the same thing between rounds, the only difference is I came to Melbourne early this time as it’s been raining and flooding at home. We have a great bike, I haven’t changed anything, and I am enjoying it, also pumped to see fellow Queenslander Jett Lawrence win the championship on it. The Honda 250 is great”, said Todd.
Unfortunately, MX1 series leader Kyle Webster sustained an injury during practice which was at no fault of his own. He will miss round 3. The team and Kyle hope he will return before the championship concludes in Queensland in August.
“It’s a bummer for everyone, these things happen but its hard not to think about what could have happened. We are all working hard towards my return and I hope to back to compete in the final two rounds in Queensland”, said Webster.
Round 3 of the Australian Motocross Championship takes place this weekend in Albury. Racing starts at 10am and gates open at 7am
