Getting back to top form following his difficult start to
the 2014 series due to injury, Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory
Racings Tyla Rattray achieved a seasons 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 dAngely, France on June 01.
Tyla Rattray: Im delighted with how
this weekend has gone. The hard work is beginning to pay off
and Im 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 Ill keep pushing to improve. With
a top five result secured my next goal is to get onto the
podium. Id like to say a big thanks to my team for their
effort in getting me back to where I belong.
