Mitch Evans Happy With Improvement At 2022 MXGP of Lombardia

Posted:

Mitch Evans is slowly working his way back into form after a 15-month layoff.

Mitch Evans’ sights are set a little lower, but the MXGP of Lombardia was another positive showing from the Australian who had missed the previous 15-months due to a wrist injury.

An unfortunate crash and then mechanical problem in qualifying meant that he had an outside gate-pick and that meant he had very little chance of starting inside the top 10. Still, he wasn’t to be discouraged and he tried his hardest to get out of the gate well.

Race one went better, and as a result, he was involved in a massive battle for the 10-15 positions, eventually taking home 13th after non-stop fighting. Race two didn’t start as well, but he worked himself forward from 22nd on lap one, into 15th by the time he finished, giving him a much-improved 12th overall.

“Much improved weekend for me in Lombardia, and I’m leaving here feeling a lot more positive about the rest of the year,” Evans said. “The results still aren’t where I want them to be, but I felt like my riding was a lot better, and it was good to battle with these guys again. The first race especially was really intense and I was always fighting for my position, so that was fun and it was something I’ve missed when away from the series. Now, I have a weekend off to keep building before heading down to Argentina which is a track I have fond memories of.”

Evans now heads to Argentina in two weeks for what will be the third round of the season.
