The Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team was back in race action this weekend on Sardinia with both Cl̩ment Desalle and Romain Febvre easing back into racing mode.

Five weeks prior the opening round of the FIM MXGP World Championship several major teams were present at the race, the first opportunity of the season to ride under racing conditions; it was the first time that this race has been part of KRT‰Ûªs winter preparation and proved a useful shakedown.

Cl̩ment Desalle enjoyed a strong ride up the leaderboard to fourth in the MX1 race, setting similar lap times to the leader on the rough sandy track of Riola Sardo.

‰ÛÏIt was good to be back behind a starting gate, and it was nice to discover a nice and natural track here in Sardinia," Desalle said. "My start was decent, I was sixth and came back to fourth with a good feeling on the bike; I felt good physically and enjoyed riding the bike. The start of the superfinal was tough as I had to avoid several riders who crashed in separate incidents; now we‰Ûªll continue to work in Belgium and Spain plus one more race at Lacapelle Marival before the GPs.‰Û

Romain Febvre was content to enjoy track time as he felt the inevitable effects of arm-pump following the long winter break from racing.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs a great feeling to be back racing after such a long break!" Febvre said. "I knew coming here that I am still working on my speed but that‰Ûªs normal at this stage of the season. Physically I was OK though I suffered some arm-pump in the first race and then in the second one it was carnage at the first corner; I made a small mistake during the race but my speed was coming back all day. I know what I have to work on and since the beginning of this month I can train every day on the bike so we‰Ûªll stay here in Sardinia for a few days before heading to our final warm-up race.‰Û
