For round three of the FIM Motocross World Championship, the cream of the crop head to South America this weekend for the MXGP of Brazil.
Held at one of the nation‰Ûªs largest theme parks, Beto Carrero, it‰Ûªs a typically Brazilian festival of a grand prix. The Beto Carrero track is unique in that it‰Ûªs the only event of the year based within a theme park, and the Brazilian passion for sport, in what is a significant sporting year for the nation, makes it a true spectacle.
Following impressive showings in both Qatar and Thailand, Team HRC‰Ûªs Max Nagl will be looking to build upon his current standing of 2nd overall in this year‰Ûªs championship riding the Honda CRF450RW.
The young German won the season opener in Qatar and currently lies just shy of championship leader Antonio Cairoli.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve been doing a little bit of training since Thailand and getting on the bike a bit, but I had pretty long jet lag after the race ‰ÛÒ for almost the whole week I was really tired." Nagl explained. "But now I‰Ûªm fine again and looking forward to Brazil.
Last year was already going pretty good there. It‰Ûªs a nice track with a stadium feeling and a lot of jumps that I like. This year it‰Ûªs run earlier in the year though during their rain time.
It looks pretty wet out there already, but I hope not too much as it‰Ûªs really difficult to ride if it‰Ûªs too wet. But it‰Ûªs always a fun place to go and the food is really good!‰Û
