HRC's Mitch Evans continued his improvement with a top ten overall at the MXGP of Kegums in what is his rookie MXGP campaign.

Over the seven days, the Australian has shown improvement with each race and can now head into the break knowing that he can battle with the top 10, despite being limited on bike time due to his recovery from the shoulder injury.

A first moto finish of twelfth was a nice progression from Wednesday, especially as he moved through the field, but it got even better in race two when he was able to move all the way up to 9th place after starting outside the top 15. This was also good enough for 10th overall which was a nice way to end his time in Latvia.

The series now has a little break before the sixth round of the series where Gajser and Evans will both be looking to show their speed once again in this 2020 MXGP world championship.

"I had the goal to be better each moto this week so I‰Ûªm happy to finish off with a top 10 finish in race two, which gave me 10th overall for the day," Evans said.

"I felt a lot better today, and like I‰Ûªve said previously, the more bike time I get, the better I‰Ûªll do. Really happy with how it all went today, I felt a lot better on the CRF450RW and although I didn‰Ûªt get the greatest of starts, my riding was spot on so I‰Ûªm looking forward to getting in a bit more bike time in this break and then coming out swinging for the next rounds of the championship where I‰Ûªll be aiming for some top five‰Ûªs.

Evans will be back in action at the MXGP of Turkey on September 6th.
