Dylan Walsh- took big hit at MXGP of France- now recovering to race Maxxis British MX Round 4

Starting inside top 10 in Qualifying Race on Saturday, followed by unfortunate incident, Walsh had little time for recovery within 12 hours before lining up in Race 1 and 2 at the historical venue of Saint Jean d’Angely on Sunday.

# 53: ‘Yeah it was a real shame to get landed on as I was settling into a nice position for a good gate pick for Sunday, but it is what it is. I’m doing good after it just lots of swelling and cuts’.

‘I couldn’t really do much about the injuries over night but after Warm-up on Sunday I decided I’d try race. Moto 1 went pretty well but Moto 2 wasn’t good’.

Adding more to the mix- testing Dylan’s ability to persevere no matter what gets thrown at him, #53 stays resilient on why he is racing World MX Championship Series, and actually has slotted into heck of busy race schedule, lining up at Maxxis British MX Championship Round 4 at Blaxhall circuit this weekend.

Standing 3rd in Maxxis ACU British Championship on 110 points, with fellow Revo Husqvarana UK Team rider Alvin Ostland in 1st on 123 points, Walsh will be seeking every opportunity to gain valuable up-front points given 2nd place Conrad Mewse is out with wrist injury.

#53: ‘The World MX Championship race schedule is actually not too bad because you get into a good routine so I’m enjoying it. I’m excited to get back behind the gate at Maxxis Round 4 this weekend and hopefully get closer to that Red Plate’.

Following Maxxis Round 4, Dylan and Team head off to MXGP of Russia, then GP’s of Latvia and Germany before fly aways to Indonesia Rounds. For sure, Dylan’s remarkable take-each-Round-as-it-comes will put him in good place for rest of MX2 Series.

With learning curves aplenty, Dylan has race experience banked, takes on board what’s to learn and puts into practice all years of training, racing, living and breathing the sport based overseas since age of 16.

#53: ‘Yeah it’s a super busy year but the thing I’ve learnt the most is trying to get and keep your body 100%. I ended up over training so I’ve been trying to play catch up since’.
