Hunter Lawrence Looking to Carry U.S Form Into Assen
After jetting back quickly from America, the Belgium-based Suzuki World MXGP team will head just over the border to the Netherlands and the road-racing circuit of Assen, which has been transformed once again into a motocross facility for this weekend‰Ûªs race.

The team will consist of just Kevin Strijbos, Jeremy Seewer and Hunter Lawrence for the penultimate round of the series after injuries to Arminas Jasikonis and Bas Vaessen rule them out of the competition.

Aussie Rookie, Lawrence is riding a wave of confidence right now and although he hasn‰Ûªt ridden the track before, he is hoping that he can replicate his USGP results back in Europe.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve heard a lot of things about Assen, having not actually raced there before. I know they build the track in the MotoGP circuit which I think is pretty cool with that big bank of spectators.

"I look forward to the sand, I enjoy the sand, just like in America which wasn‰Ûªt too deep, but was still soft and sandy. It‰Ûªll be nice to get back to Europe and try and continue on from my results last weekend at this new track.‰Û

Despite suffering a dislocated hip in the first moto of the USGP, Jasikonis was able to travel back with the team from America and was upgraded to business class in an effort to make the long-distance travel as comfortable as possible. Since back in Belgium, he has seen Dr Alex Demurie and received a promising initial prognosis.

‰ÛÏI will be able to start full movement in about six weeks, I can start cycling and getting back to full fitness. For now, I will be doing physiotherapy to keep my leg moving, so as not to lose any of the muscle mass. I was really lucky because I didn‰Ûªt do any major damage, the leg just popped out and they were able to put it back in. There was no damage to the bone or any nerves. Actually, right now, my ribs are hurting me a lot more. If I turn on my side in my sleep, it is like being stabbed with knife. Even though I will miss these last two races, I think it has been a great year for me with the Suzuki World MXGP team.‰Û
