Dylan Walsh- ready to race Maxxis British MX Championship Round 3

Dylan Walsh is ready to race. Walsh will be racing Round 3 of Maxxis British MX Championship at Canada Heights this weekend followed by the next gruelling 15 weekends back-to-back racing World MX2 Championship and remaining 5 of 8 Round Series in UK.

With unusual 4 week gap in MXGP/MX2 calendar due to cancellation of MXGP Hong Kong, Dylan made most of opportunity to rest, recover from slight injury, and re-focus on racing goals.

#53: ‘Yeah, the last few weeks have been really good to get my body back to 100% and kinda just get everything back on track.

‘I think it’s definitely played to my advantage because my body wasn’t 100% and I just needed a break’.

What could be described as part of the sport having to adjust to changes, knock-backs, balancing staying on top of rider’s game from March through to end of September, racing 18 MX2 Rounds and 8 Maxxis British Rounds, Dylan remains sincere in his approach to 2nd half of MX2 season.

#53: ‘Over the break I literally took the first week off with no riding and then I got back on the bike for 2 weeks. We did some testing and we improved a lot so I think we have made good steps’.

‘With the break over the last few weeks I’ve been based at my place in Lommel but came over to England this week for the race this weekend. I’ve heard the track is really good so I can’t wait’.

Currently standing 4th Overall in UK Championship, Dylan banks all race-time as essential preparation for MX2 Rounds, which re-start at MXGP of Lombardia the following weekend.

#53: ‘Yeah racing is always better than just training so I enjoy the Maxxis. For the next 16 weekends I’ll be racing every weekend but my trainer knows what I need to do and we will manage it well’.

Setting the bar high on what NZ’s MX2 debut rider wants to achieve is nothing short of expected from Walsh, given #53 has worked hard to reach racing World Championship class under Revo Husqvrana UK Team this year. As Dylan says:

‘I’m not really satisfied at all yet so let’s see how the second half of the season goes!’
