20-year-old Ben Townley won his first motocross world title (and NZ’s second) with a double victory in the MX2 class at the Grand Prix of Ireland. “On the last lap of the first race, my mechanic, Craig Behl showed me a pit board that said, ‘Your dreams have come true’, and I just went cold,” said Townley in the NZ Herald. Townley’s NZ team-mate and best friend, Josh Coppins, came third in the MX1 class. Coppins is the reigning British champion.
