GYTR Yamaha’s Wilson Todd continues to shine at Broadford
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
26 April 2015: Broadford, Victoria
GYTR Yamaha rider Wilson Todd has claimed his second overall round win and continues to hold on to the MXD red plate, after a successful outing at Broadford today.
On one of the toughest tracks on the 2015 MX Nationals calendar Todd took the day in his stride, doing exactly what needed to be done in order to maintain his Pirelli MXD championship lead.
In moto one, the holeshot was taken by Raceline Pirelli Suzuki’s newest addition Jesse Madden, with Todd following closely behind. However, two laps was all that was required for Todd to claim the race lead, eventually crossing the line first ahead of Madden, and Yamaha mounted Jonte Reynders.
GYTR’s Mitch Evans who made his return to racing today after injury, made an early exit from the competition, crashing out of race one and failing to return to the track.
In moto two, Madden’s Suzuki machine was once again first into turn one, this time ahead of KTM’s Wade Carter and Kaleb Barham (KTM).
By the time the chequered flag flew on race two, Carter secured the second moto race win ahead of Jayden Rykers (KTM) and Todd who claimed third.
Thankfully third was all Todd required from the final moto in order to secure the round overall – the GYTR Yamaha rider finishing on the top step of the podium, ahead of Carter and Madden respectively.

“The aim of today was to stay consistent and just build on the points championship every round,” he said.
“Race wins are important but taking overalls is what I’m here for and I’m just continuing to work on the championship.
“We have a three week break now so I’m just going to put in some more laps, plenty of training and see what we can do at Murray Bridge.”
