Mitch Evans has been hard at work as he prepares to make his his debut with Team HRC at the MXGP opener at Matterley Basin, in the UK on March 1st for round one of the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship.

Joining an extremely competitive MXGP class, Evans who moves up from the MX2 world championship which he rode in 2019, has delared he is ready to go. Despite being just 21 years old, many experts believe that Evans is much more suited to the more powerful 450cc machines, which is something he proved when he won his first outing on the larger capacity bike at Sugo for the Japanese national championship. Now though, the Australian youngster wants to show that as quickly as possible in the MXGP class as he hopes to settle into this 2020 campaign

"It was a dream come true to sign with Team HRC at the end of last year, and even though I‰Ûªll be riding in a new class on a brand new bike, I feel ready to show everyone what I am capable of," Evans said.

"I know it won‰Ûªt be easy because the MXGP class is filled with top riders, but with the help of everyone in the team I believe I am ready to go out there and get some good results. My off season has gone well and when I jumped on this brand new Honda CRF450RW, I felt good right away.

"Each time I get on the machine I feel like I am improving and when I‰Ûªm riding with Tim, I have the perfect gauge to see just how well I am doing. He has been a great team mate so far but I know the results are down to me and that‰Ûªs what I am concentrating on when the season begins at the MXGP of Great Britain on March 1st."

HRC General Manager - MXGP, Marcus Pereira de Freitas, is happy with how Evans has fit into the team.

"Mitch has fitted into the team quickly, and has adapted well to riding a 450cc machine after riding in the MX2 class last year," he said. "He has good fitness and has shown a lot of promise in the testing sessions that we‰Ûªve had so we are all excited to see what he can do in a race environment. It won‰Ûªt be easy for either rider but everyone in Team HRC is fully committed to helping him achieve his goals and we are confident that 2020 can be another good year for Honda."
