    Troy Lee Designs Honda's Ben Townley is back in Florida preparing for the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship where the popular Kiwi will make his long awaited return to racing in the U.S. A series of injuries forced him to take some substantial time off to properly heal, and by all accounts he is ready for the fight, even rocking a mohawk and war paint. Ok, maybe just the mohawk, but he's all business with Hangtown just ten days away. We'll catch up with Ben tonight for an..

  • About

    New to the AMA East Supercross Lites Series and AMA Motocross Lites Series in 2006, Ben Townley suffered from a string of bad luck due to injury and was unable to compete on behalf of Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/ Kawasaki. In 2006, Townley was ready to make his debut with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki. However, due to an injury he sustained, he was unable to compete in any of the AMA East Supercross Lites races. Unfortunately, his bad luck carried over into the Motocross Lites Series and Townley was only able to compete in races at Red Bud and Glen Helen. At Glen Helen he showed the fans and his competitors that he was healthy and ready to fight by finishing third overall for the day. Ben moved up to the premier MX1 class in FIM competition in Europe, where he finished third overall in the point standings. He captured first overall at the GP's in England, France, Italy and Spain. He also had an impressive second place overall finish at Motocross of Nations, helping Team New Zealand claim fourth place. In 2004, he won nine of the 16 GP' s, 21 of 32 motos and six GP doubles. Ben claimed the FIM MX2 World Championship, and was the Dutch MX2 Champion. Townley earned two MX2 podiums by taking second at Loket (Czech Republic) and third at Gaildorf (Germany). He finished 11th overall in the MX2 World Championship. In 2002, Townley earned his first MX2 GP podium finish. He also went on to win a total of five podiums taking first at Uddevalla (Sweden), second at Moscow (Russia), Valkenswaard (Netherlands), and Castiglione del Lago (Italy) and third at Sevlievo (Bulgaria). He also finished sixth overall in the MX2 World Championship. In 2202, his debut season in the FIM MX2 World Championship, Townley finished 33rd overall. The highlight of the season came at the GP of Belgium where he placed tenth.

    Making it's first appearance of the year was the #101 TLD Honda and it's rider, Ben Townley. While Ben never had any intention of racing AMA Supercross this season, he took a break in the New Zealand action that he's been dominating to come up and get a feel for his new team. The TLD guys, led by David Pingree, will support Townley for the entire National Motocross season in his bid to get a 'privateer' machine on the podium for series points. All we can say is: Take it easy in your preparation Ben, we'd hate to see your season compromised by a training injury.
