With Argentina proving hard work for the young Italian, Michele Cervellin is determined to get his championship assault back on track this weekend as he prepares for the fourth leg of MXGP in Leon; Mexico.

With Mexico being the last of the flyways, this will be the last leg of unfamiliar ground until the Russian GP for the young Italian. Despite this, Cervellin is completely undeterred by a taking on a new track and adapting to a new climate again this weekend. Knowing that his strength is being able push harder than his competition in the second half of the race, Cervellin’s aim this weekend is to improve his start. This way he will prevent making so much work for himself, fighting back through the pack.

Unfortunately following his crash in Argentina, Notsuka will not be joining his teammate this weekend in Mexico. Notuska is still undergoing medical examination but hopefully we will be able to give more information on this during the weekend.

MX2 free practice starts at 10:45am local time on Saturday 1st April.

I have seen a few pictures of the track in Mexico and I have seen a video of the race last year. From what I can see the track looks nice but again this is all new for me so I am just going to go there with an open mind and do my best. I wasn't so happy with my result in Argentina so my aim is to get in the top five/six which will be better for sure.

Michele rode reasonably well in Mexico but made hard work for himself. He has been back in Italy working on his strategy for the race. A good start is critical and we run at a high altitude in Mexico which means that everyone will be slightly down on power. Hopefully he can get a good start an we will see him top five/six again, which he is more than capable of.
Chihiro had a big bang in Argentina and he is under observation with his medical team which we will hopefully have more info on by the weekend.
