Todd Waters signs with DPH Husqvarna for MX Nats and AUS SX | News
Todd Waters has announced his return to domestic racing where he will contest the MX Nationals and Australian Supercross Championship for DPH Husqvarna.
In a statement, Waters said “As you all know well by now, my intention for that past 1.5 years has been to get myself to the AMA Outdoor Championship. As the 2018 MXGP season came to an end I had to focus on the next chapter. This time of year is unsettling, to say the least, your life is in the hands of a bunch of team managers and manufacturers. I was set on racing with Honda for 2019 and using their bikes in the AMA Outdoors as a privateer. As it turns out, unfortunately, it wasn’t going to be viable to do it with Honda. On the back burner, I had the opportunity to race with DPH Husqvarna for both the Australian motocross and supercross championships.”
“I grabbed this opportunity and am pleased to announce my return to Husqvarna. I have great memories on this bike and am still great friends with many people involved with Husqvarna worldwide.
“I have completed an intense off-bike training regime which will be followed with a lot of bike time on my new Husqvarna FC 450 & TC 250. After a few rides I already feel comfortable. This makes sense, as it is a bike & brand (sister company to KTM) that I grew up riding. The engine suits me well and I can’t wait to see what I can achieve with my riding.”
“Last year wasn’t anything close to what I had planned. Without giving too much away, just know that I do have big plans & goals for 2019. I hope you will enjoy following what I get up to this year. At the very least I hope I get some tongues wagging. What’s not to love about riding a two stroke? Has anyone got holiday destinations booked in the mid season break?”
The first round of the MX Nationals is scheduled for 17 March at Appin, NSW.
