Todd Waters has continued his inspired 2022 off-road campaign with a stunning fourth outright and second in the E2 class result at the Australian Four-Day Enduro (A4DE) in Erica, VIC.
It was Waters’ first-ever experience at not only the four-day, but also the enduro racing format, and he proved his ability to continue adapting and excelling at whatever he points his wheels to.
Waters was able to set himself up early by keeping the E2 class leader in his sights on the opening day, but a couple of crashes in the cold, greasy conditions the racers encountered on day two saw him drop more than a minute behind.
However, Waters was able to turn the tables on day three as he charged through the varied, challenging special tests to the class win and third outright.
Day four was Waters’ day as the current ProMX MX1 red plate-holder put the rest of the field to the sword during the grass-track finale, claiming the day’s class and outright honours after the 15-minute moto had been completed.
Waters strong finish saw him consolidate his P2 result in the E2 class and narrowly miss out on a third outright by a scant nine seconds after four hard days of racing.
The Queenslander’s focus now turns to the fourth round of the 2022 ProMX Championship in Gillman, South Australia, on May 29.
Todd Waters: “Coming into my first Australian Four-Day Enduro was pretty daunting and I was nervous, but once I got my head around the enduro formats, the servicing and everything else, it felt a lot more comfortable. A couple of crashes on the second day probably cost me an outright podium position, which was disappointing, but at the same time, I’m proud to have come through the A4DE with a second-place result in the E2 class, take the class win on day three and win the outright on day four.”
