New Zealand’s Ben Townley has shaken off his mystery virus and is back on the gas again.
The Suzuki World MXGP Team rider took part in the season-opening ADAC MX Masters in Drehna, Germany, at the weekend, topping the qualifying race on Saturday and winning the first race on Sunday.
“It was a really great weekend racing in Germany,” said the Bay of Plenty man.
“I enjoyed the track, it was fun, soft and with quite a lot of jumps. We went to Drehna with a new setting to test and right away I felt that it was a good improvement. It helped my riding a lot.”
In the second moto, Townley took the holeshot and immediately put in some good laps. However, he suffered some mechanical issues and was forced to retire.
He added: “I was happy with my riding, I thought I could go faster, but overall I’m feeling pretty good with the weekend.”
