Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team’s Jay Wilson will race at Wayville in South Australia for Round 3 of the 2016 Australian Supercross Championship this weekend solo, with American fill in rider Chris Alldredge remaining sidelined due to an injury sustained at Toowoomba two weeks ago.
Despite Alldredge forced to sit out this weekend’s event, SX1 Honda rider Wilson has continued to make progress throughout the two weeks since Toowoomba, and will be heading to South Australia with the goal to reward Factory Honda with impressive results.
Wilson, who prior to Round 2 was suffering from an ankle injury, shared that since then he’s had consistent bike time and additional time to heal, placing him well for a top result when bikes hit the track again this Saturday night.
“Before going to Toowoomba, I had a few issues with my ankle, but with some physio it’s all started to feel a lot better, and I’ve had a couple of great weeks on the bike,” Wilson shared.
“With Chris unable to ride, he’s actually been at the track with me every day just helping me out, which has been awesome. It makes a big difference having someone there who can see things exactly from a racers point of view, and hopefully that makes a difference to the results this weekend.
“The setting we have for the Honda has got me feeling really comfortable, so we’ve just been putting in a lot of time on the bike and getting in as many laps as we can each week.
“I’ve been a bit unlucky with injuries this year, so fingers crossed they’re all behind me now and I can finish off the last three rounds strong for the team.”
The Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team will now prepare to head to Wayville in South Australia for round three of the 2016 Australian Supercross Championship, being held this Friday, October 29.
