Interview: Todd Waters talks MX in Oz

3 years ago

From the small town of Atherton in Queensland comes a guy who is not afraid to kick it and rip it on a dirt bike. Todd Waters is one heck of a fast racer and has definitely made a name for himself, not only in the Australian MX scene but in Europe and America as well. Recently the young gun sat down with his good mate, Jason Macalpine from Gypsy Tales, to have a laugh and talk about his time spent overseas racing the MXGP in Europe and even how he gave up a factory team position in Oz to go racing in the States. Todd is definitely one bloke to keep an eye on in the racing scene.
With a good mix of topics and a general laugh, this is one podcast we think you will love. Here is what Jason had to say about his podcast chat with Todd…

Todd Waters has been a close friend of mine since we were both still in school. It was always pretty obvious the direction he was going then with his racing career but nevertheless, it has been awesome to see how far he has been able to take his racing – from Australian soil to two years on the MX World Championship circuit and now to the US in 2018. In this episode of the podcast, we talked about how the plan came about to head to the US in 2018, the current state of motocross in Australia and the correct way to cut a mango. Todd’s never one to take himself too seriously, so this was a really fun podcast to do.
