Wilson Todd – MXD Class

With the MX2 class being the second group of riders out on the track this morning, the 250 machines were treated surprisingly good conditions, shaking any rumours that Coolum would be under water.

When the MX2 class commenced their opening warm up session, it was JCR Yamaha’s Jay Wilson who was fastest on track, setting the bench mark for the day, that would lead him to a fairytale finish.

Hunter Lawrence – Rising Star Rookies
