Price crowned King of the Desert after winning Day 2 at Finke

2 years ago

The price was indeed right for HSE Motorex KTM’s Toby Price as he raced to the finish line for first place and a $10,000 cheque as the winner of the 2012 Tatts Finke Desert Race.

From Singleton in NSW, Price took his second victory in the Finke Desert Race in only three attempts – having won in his first year at the event in 2010.

Very modest in victory, Price said the win meant everything to him, but also stated that his injured teammate “Grabbo (Ben Grabham) is still the best”. He also thanked Grabham for his assistance with today’s win.

“I felt good over the two days,” said Price. “I had a couple of little mistakes on the way down to Finke but I held a little in reserve and felt good for Day 2 after an ice bath recovery session overnight.”

Price did Day 1 of the event in a time of 1 hour 57 minutes and 55 seconds and came home today in a time of 1 hour 59 minutes and 7 seconds for a total time of 3 hours 57 minutes and 3 seconds.

“I look forward to racing next year’s event and completing with four-time Finke Champion, Ben Grabham, for victory in 2013,” finishes Price.

Second overall was local Alice Springs rider David Walsh aboard his #11 Honda CRF450R. His total time for the event was 4 hours 5 minutes and 52 seconds.

In third place was NSW rider Todd Smith on the #4 Honda CRF450R who placed second in the 2010 event. Smith’s total time was 4 hours 11 minutes and 25 seconds.
