But with Max Nagl, Gautier Paulin, Kevin Strijbos, Clement Desalle, Pauls Jonass, Jeremy Van Hoorbeek, Jeremy Sewer, Max Anstie, Tommy Searle, Glenn Coldenhoff, Evgeny Bobryshev, Jordi Tixier
and former MX1 World champion, Tim Gasjer
and Romain Febvre
all lining up, it is sure to be one heck of an opening round, with all riders knowing this could be their year.
The MX2 class sees a new breed of racers coming through in what is also likely to be a wide-open championship.
For us Aussies, all attention at the opening round will be on our sole representative at the event Mitch Evans. As mentioned above, Jed Beaton will miss the opening round due to an injury sustained last weekend.
