Finishing MXGP of Latvia with 13th in R1 and 19th in R2, Walsh keeps mind-set open on what he has achieved so far in 2019 World Championship season- having put in best performance at Matterley Basin going 10-10 and then at Lombardia finishing 5th in R2.

At half-way point in season, Dylan holds 17th Overall in MX2 with team-mate Alvin Ostland one position in front with 8 Rounds to go.

The unpredictable nature of racing World MX Championship was no more evident than at MXGP of Latvia, taking even seasoned Champions aka Jeffrey Herlings side-lined with injury, hence Walsh’s performance in debut year slots in to all-time learning curve on what real-time racing is like at highest possible level.

#53: ‘Yeah racing wasn’t great but moto one I rode well and then second race was horrible I just struggled! You have to get used to every type of track and be ready every-time for everything. But it’s good learning curve’.

Heading into MXGP of Germany at Teutschenthal this weekend, #53 remains matter of fact on what he wants to achieve- balancing need to gain solid results with consistent push to race smooth against challenging obstacles on track.

#53: ‘I actually really like this track in Germany so I can’t wait to get out there and race. I’ll just be thinking about myself and ride the best I can’.

With decision made that Dylan won’t be attending Indonesia GP’s: Rounds 11 and 12- bets are on that the Husqvarna rider will come out firing at Czech, followed by home track GP of Lommel then Imola GP, Italy post fly-aways.

For Walsh, staying positive is in-grained, part of his character- which is the reason why the NZ’der is the first Kiwi to race MX2 World Championship since BT won in 2004.
