Mitch Evans Gaining Confidence With MXGP of Patagonia-Argentina Top Ten

Posted:

Mitch Evans made a welcome return to the MXGP top ten after 15-months of injury struggles.

Mitch Evans has continued to improve taking eighth overall at the MXGP of Patagonia-Argentina.

The Australia’s speed was good in both races at the third round of the 2022 MXGP World Championship and showed that his ceiling is consistently rising every time he gets on the track. With a tenth and an eighth, he is once again back competing in the top ten once again.

Now, the target is to maintain that pace for the whole moto, but this is understandable, given he missed over 15-months of MXGP action with a serious wrist injury.

“I love riding this track and it feels good to make more positive progress throughout the weekend,” Evans said. “I am really pleased with my speed and it felt good to be up there inside the top 10, battling with the top guys. Now, I need to work on getting my race fitness up to the level where I can do that for the whole race, but this is really encouraging for me and it gives me more motivation for the next round in Portugal which is another track I like.”

Marcus Pereira de Freitas, HRC General Manager – MXGP, is also boyed by Evans’s performance. “Mitch also made huge strides, running just outside the top five for the majority of the race, and his eighth overall shows his continued progression back from his long-term injury. We now have a weekend off, but we’re all excited to head to the next round in Agueda, Portugal,” Pereira de Freitas said.

Next up for Evans is the MXGP of Portugal, which is taking place on April 2-3 in Agueda.
