Fresh of the back of the German MXGP, the FIM world championship heads straight to Ernée this weekend for the MXGP of France.
Gajser has some fond memories of Ernée as this is where he debuted racing the CRF450R, in the 2015 MX of Nations. Following his crash in Germany last weekend, he has been resting up at home this week. The Slovenian will be hoping to come back stronger from his run of bad luck he has experienced over the last two GP’s.
Ernée is a purpose built hard pack motocross track in the small village of Ernée in Northern France. It is famous for its steep drop offs and hill climbs. It is also extremely popular with spectators as they can view the whole track from the opposing hill. It was used in the 2005 and 2015 Motocross of Nations.
The weather is expected to be extremely warm over the weekend, with highs reaching nearly 30 degrees. There is a small chance of rain on the Sunday which could potentially make the race a little more challenging.
The MXGP qualifying race starts at on Saturday 27th May local time.
