Getting back to top form following his difficult start to the 2014 series due to injury, Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Tyla Rattray achieved a season’s best result of fourth overall in the MXGP class at the FIM Motocross World Championship GP of Great Britain.
Getting well with the fast flowing, jump filled Matterley Basin circuit, Rattray ended his weekend on a high with a fourth place result in race two. Knowing that with a strong start he could run up front in the highly competitive MXGP class, Rattray sought to better his race one result of eighth. Rounding lap one in fifth, the Husqvarna rider worked his way up to third. Battling with championship leader Antonio Cairoli, Rattray eventually slipped back to fourth where he then stayed for the remainder of the race.

The FIM Motocross World Championship continues with round nine at Saint Jean d’Angely, France on June 01.

Tyla Rattray: “I’m delighted with how this weekend has gone. The hard work is beginning to pay off and I’m getting back into the sharp end of the results. Race two was fantastic. I got a good jump off the start and was inside the top five almost immediately. From there I chipped away and got up to third. I had a nice battle with Antonio Cairoli and then Jeremy Van Horebeek to finish fourth. This result is the confidence boost I needed. The MXGP of France is next weekend and I’ll keep pushing to improve. With a top five result secured my next goal is to get onto the podium. I’d like to say a big thanks to my team for their effort in getting me back to where I belong.”
