Michele Cervellin made a welcome return to form today on his CRF250RW with a top 10 overall in Switzerland.

Michele’s riding was reflective of the form he displayed early in the season. When others tire at the end of the race, the Italian puts down faster lap times in a final push for a better position. As a result, in the first race he took a well-deserved eighth place. In the second race, Michele didn’t get such a good start but didn’t give up pushing for positions and finished just outside the top 10.

For Taiki, this weekend has been a big learning curve. The young Japanese wasn’t put off by the strength of the MX2 class and even without any previous experience in the class he went out and gave it his all.

Taiki will return for another race with HRC in Sweden next weekend for round 16 of the FIM world motocross championship.

Today was a little bit better than last weekend. It shows that now I have started training again I have seen a better result. It is not the top result but I knew I rode well and I really liked the track. I felt like I worked with the bike well today. I finished 10th overall. I know it is possible to me to do better. The second moto start was not as good and It showed as I came in 12th whereas in the first race I came in eighth.

This weekend was a tough weekend for me. There were many riders and they are all a lot faster in MXGP then they are in Japan so I had a good experience and have learnt many things from this weekend which I will take into Sweden next week.

Michele rode quite well today, somewhere near where we have got him targeted. He kept a good rhythm and that was encouraging he just needs to push forward and keep this momentum up. For Koga, I think his eyes were opened well and truly today on his introduction to MX2. It was good to see that he is a fighter and you can see why he is leading the Japanese championship. Not a bad ride from him, not good results but we didn’t expect that from him in the first place. It is a big learning curve for him to take back to Honda in Japan.
