Team Raceline Pirelli Suzuki's Hamish Dobbyn Collects Points Despite Injury

2010 Australian National Motocross Championship (Round Five) Newcastle (NSW) 30 May 2010
Team Raceline Pirelli Suzuki rider Hamish Dobbyn showed great determination at the Australian National Motocross Championship in Newcastle, finishing sixth overall despite suffering a hand injury during practice.
At one of the toughest tracks of the season thus far, Dobbyn showed great pace in the first moto, leading at stages and ultimately finishing second.
In the second moto, Dobbyn again ran up front, collecting fourth place. However in the final moto, he succumbed to the injury and was unable to finish.
Despite the limitation imposed by his injury, Dobbyn retained his sixth place overall in the U19 Championship.
The next round of the Australian National Motocross Championship will be held at Wodonga on June 27.

"Hamish showed a lot of heart today. After breaking his knuckle in the second lap of practice he still managed to qualify fourth.
"Hamish had two fantastic starts today, andhe managed to lead for the majority of the first moto and battle for the top positions in the second moto before the pain got too much mid way through moto three and he had to pull out.
"We have a few weeks until the next round so there is plenty of time for Hamish to recover; we'll come out swinging at Wodonga."
