AUSTRALIA, QUEENSLAND. Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki’s Kyle Peters is preparing to head back to where his Australian Motocross career began when the ninth round of the 2017 Motul MX Nationals takes place at Toowoomba in Queensland this Sunday.
In 2016, Peters headed to Australia for a one-off race that truly paid off – recording his first ever Motul MX Nationals race win and concluding the outing in second overall in the premier MX1 category at Toowoomba. This weekend the Suzuki mounted rider will be aiming to replicate his previous performance.
Peters has spent the last two weeks travelling around the country training on numerous tracks in preparation for this weekend and shared that he’s got only one goal in round nine, and that’s to capture that elusive podium.
“Toowoomba is really special for me, it’s where everything here in Australia sort of started so I’ve been waiting for this round all season,” Peters shared.
“For me, this is the first round of the year where I’ve been to the track before, I’ve had success there and I’m feeling really prepared for Sunday. The goal is to do what I did there last year, in fact, better my result.
“I am yet to do what I came here to do, and it’s really important for me to finish the year off strong. I’m heading to Toowoomba to win and to ride the way I know I can.”
Round nine of the 2017 MX Nationals will take place at Toowoomba in Queensland this Sunday, August 13. Visit the official series website at www.mxnationals.com.au for further information.
