Hunter Lawrence has finished an impressive sixth overall in his return to racing at the MXGP of Czech Republic, round fourteen of the FIM Motocross World Championship.

The Team Honda 114 Motorsports rider looked like his early-season self around the famed Loket circuit with his five-six moto finishes. After taking a couple of rounds off to recover properly from his injuries, Lawrence showed good speed in both races and with slightly luckier starts, he could easily have been challenging for a podium spot.

"It was a good comeback weekend overall really," Lawrence enthused. "In the first moto I got a decent start around 10th which made the race a lot easier. I passed as many people as I could early on and then found myself behind Jonass for pretty much the remainder of the moto. I battled with him for most of it but in the end had to settle for fifth place as it was just too difficult to make a pass stick on this track.

"In the second race, another rider completely cut across the track on the start straight, turning the opposite direction to the corner which put me right against the berm and ruined my good jump. I think was outside the top 20 and had to come back through the pack, which I did manage to do, all the way to sixth. I‰Ûªm happy with that though as it is something to build on and even though there was a bit of fatigue towards the end of the races I think that is pretty normal for my first race back. I‰Ûªm definitely looking forward to improving for the next couple of races," Lawrence conclude.

Lawrence will be back in action at the 15th round of the FIM Motocross World Championship which will take place in Lommel on August the 5th for the Fiat Professional MXGP of Belgium.
