Revo Kawasaki’s Dylan Walsh came within a single point of taking the MX1 class overall at MXGB Canada Heights and is now only four behind series leader Tommy Searle.

Still sore after his whopping crash last weekend, Walsh qualified third but didn’t manage to pull one of his trademark fast starts in the opening moto.

However, he pulled through from an initial seventh and was sitting in second in the closing stages when a collision with defending champion Tommy Searle dropped him back to fifth.

Second time out and the 23-year-old Kiwi made no mistakes out of the gate, nailing the holeshot and leading for the full race distance to end the day in second overall and reduce the deficit to the series leader to just four points.

“Today’s been much better. I made the wrong tyre choice for the first moto and got a bad start but I worked my way up to second before Tommy and I came together. For the second moto we went with a scoop, I holeshot it and didn’t look back,” said Walsh.

“I’d like to thank Mark, Sam and Josh for the work they’ve done on the bike. It’s night and day different – it’s wicked! I’ve got that monkey off my back and feel so confident. It should have been an overall win for me but I’ll take that win in the second race and we’ll carry this momentum into the next round at Foxhill.”
