With plenty of reason to move forwards following MXGP of France incident which left Dylan battered and bruised in Qualifying Race, #53 was keen and ready to race on the naturally elevated, sand based circuit of Blaxhall, Surrey in the UK at the weekend.

#53: ‘Yeah it was a solid weekend for 2nd Overall and the Red Plate but I still have a lot to work on’.

Racing up front, Walsh took advantage of mis-fortunes that plagued MX2 pointy end riders, not least his team-mate Alvin Ostland, all the while maintaining focus to ride his own race as he knows how.

Putting in practice all learning curves Dylan has encountered in his debut World Championship MX2 year, Walsh now holds the Red Plate with 152 points from 2nd place Josh Gilbert on 151 with Alvin Ostland in 3rd on 145.

Making most of boost in confidence, Dylan and Team- Revo Husqvarna UK head to Russia for MX2 Round 8, followed by 2 consecutive weeks MXGP of Latvia and GP of Germany before fly aways to Indonesia Rounds on July 7th and 14th.

Staying as positive as ever, grounded in his approach on next race, Dylan banks leading of Maxxis British MX Championship as another step in the right direction to achieve his long-terms goals of success racing World MX Championship level.

#53: ‘The track this weekend was quite difficult to find a good flow but I got through the weekend with good bike time ready for Russia’.
