Max Nagl makes a welcome return to the MXGP grid for his home Grand Prix in Teutschenthal, Germany this weekend.
Nagl hasn’t featured for Team HRC since a crash in testing in April, but will climb aboard his Honda CRF450RW once more in front of his home fans.
Unfortunately as one rider returns, another is cruelly ruled out, as a season full of misfortune for Evgeny Bobryshev continued in Italy last weekend where he suffered fractures of his left tibia and fibula in a racing accident whilst in fifth position.
Teutschenthal has been ever-present on the Motocross Grand Prix calendar since its first appearance in 1966. The dirt-based venue has stood the test of time and continues to attract big crowds at a track featuring steep hills mixed with tight and twisty sections.
The weather forecast should be clear, with temperatures hovering around the low 20 degrees Celsius creating ideal racing conditions.
