Team HRC MX2 return to racing this week as the MX2 rookies Michele Cervellin and Chihiro Notsuka take their CRF250RWs to Patagonia Argentina for the first time.
Cervellin and Notsuka will both be hoping for a solid weekend after the Indonesian GP results didn’t match the standard to which they were riding at.
Feeling robbed after last weekend’s disqualification in the first race due to crashing and re-joining the track at a later stage, Cervellin is ready to charge this weekend to fight back for his championship points. He started strong in Qatar with a stunning ride earning him an early fifth place overall in the championship standings which so he will be striving to earn back this weekend.
JMX champion Notsuka’s focus is to improve from his first two GP races which have been a big learning curve for the young Japanese. He showed great promise last weekend, riding well through the sodden Indonesian mud but in the end luck was not on his side but with a new track and new opportunity, he remains focused on achieving his goal of a top 15 finish.
A popular track with the riders, the picturesque scenery surrounding the track makes it one of the more beautiful race destinations on the MXGP calendar. The track is located near Argentina-Chile border and attracts a large crowd every year.
MX2 starts with Free Practice on Saturday 18th March with MX2 races on Sunday 19th March
