The latest round of the Motul MX National’s saw Pirelli riders feature on the podium in three key classes of the series. The tricky conditions again showed the versatility and race winning performance of the Scorpion MX32.

Todd Waters (Wilsons Cool Air Motul Suzuki) lead the way for the Pirelli riders at this round, taking the Moto 1 win after placing 2nd in the GoPro Superpole. Waters chose the Scorpion MX32 front 80/100-21 in combination with the 110/90-19 rear Scorpion MX 32 to achieve this result. A 3rd place in the second race meant he ended up 2nd overall for the round after count-back. Kade Mosig (National Pump Monster Energy Kawasaki) finished a strong 4th for the round, taking 4th in both MX1 races.

Don Nicholas – Product Manager Moto Link International –“ With 2 rounds of the Motul MX Nationals  to go we have Pirelli riders well placed MX1, MX2 and MXD. Toowoomba and  Coolum are quite different tracks, with the new Scorpion MX32 Pro sure to feature at Toowoomba and the Scorpion MX Soft 410 a favourite race winning tyre at Coolum.
