‘MY BACKYARD’ WITH TODD WATERS
For a guy from North Queensland who never intentionally set out to become a professional dirt bike rider, Todd Waters has achieved a heck of a lot in the motorcycle industry. From winning his first Australian Junior Motocross Championship at 12 years old to claiming the 2019 Australian MX1 Championship, and becoming only the third Aussie in history to represent Team Australia at both the MXoN and ISDE, Waters’ list of accolades is long and well-decorated.
Nowadays, Todd’s focus is on his family and his businesses – as co-owner of Raceline (with Jason Waters), he heads up Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia’s domestic motocross and supercross program, and is focused on the development of his young team rider, Rhys Budd.
Ahead of the 2024 season, Transmoto and VW Amarok and Vans caught up with Todd at his hometown on the Gold Coast, Queensland, to learn more about his history as a racer, his transition into business ownership, and goals for the 2024 season as a race team owner. This is My Backyard with Todd Waters.
