Dylan Walsh ready for 2019 FIM MX2 Opening Round at Pategonia this weekend

NZ’s Dylan Walsh is ready to go, ready to race, and ready to put all past years- training, living, breathing, racing overseas to the test lining up at 2019 FIM MX2 Opening Round at Pategonia, Argentina this weekend.

Having settled in, walked the track, comfortable with preparation and training pre-season, Walsh continues a legacy set 16 years ago by former GP winners Josh Coppins 2x Vice-Champion 2002, 2005 and Ben Townley MX2 Champion 2004.

With Townley gaining first GP Overall in his 2nd season- 2002 GP win at Uddevalla, Sweden and Coppins claiming first GP Overall win in 2004- in his 6th season, Dylan stands firm in world class company of fellow Kiwi GP winners.

Coming close to racing premier class in European MX Championships, NZ’s Josiah Natzke clinched 2nd Overall EMX 125cc in 2015, and went on to win EMX 250cc Round 3 at Kegums, Latvia in 2017.

For Dylan, there is nothing more on the want list than to land solid performance, consistent results, while pushing his all up front with the best in the World. And best it is with KTM Factory MX2 2018 winner Jorge Prado leading the odds to win, along with MX2 contenders who have yet to displace Walsh on his debut GP.

With long MX2 19 Round Series ahead, 2 weeks after Matterley Basin, UK, followed by Valkenswaard March 31st, race time will be plenty to settle Dylan’s goals for success.
