Stating facts- he is disapppointed with results- track dirt was challenging for racing.  Equally facts exist- this class is major league in World MX Championship racing- step up big-time from EMX, and class has max loaded talented riders with previous MX2 seasons under their caps.

#53: This weekend was horrible for me. I just struggled and never found my flow. I didn’t ride close to the normal Dylan so it’s disappointing’.

‘The soil was really strange. It’s was really hard pack underneath but sandy on top so it was very new to me. But we ended up getting a better bike setting towards the end’.

Which speaks volumes on how unique, difficult, and taxing the sport really is. Not only does performance rest on Rider-Bike duo of rider ability to bike power, but on track terrain which changes every corner, every lap and every race.

Put in different perspective: how would MotoGP perform on sand? How would FA Soccer build fan-cheers dribbling ball on loamy surface? How would Rugby winger sprint on wet hard-pack?

Facts are certain- Dylan Walsh raced with all guts, determination, and keeness to notch his way up MX2 Championship standings.

#53: Yeah first one is out the way but the only real positives are we made good changes on the bike and we’re leaving healthy’.

Now I have the first round of the British MX Championship this weekend so it will be good to turn things around and actually ride properly’.

2019 MX2 is long Championship season. #53: is up for the task ahead, is healthy and stays so positive. These are best attributes a Rider can have which Dylan shares with everyone. And which will bring racing success.
