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.
