Better starts and staying out of trouble have helped Aussie Mitch Evans to the best result of the season so far.

Mitch Evans has put in his best results of the season with an eight-six for seventh overall at the 11th round of the 2022 MXGP World Championship, the MXGP of Germany.

For Evans, an excellent fifth in the qualification race gave him the opportunity to mix it up with the top riders off the gate and he was able to take advantage of that by posting two results inside the top 10 for the first time this year.

In both races, it was pretty much the case that where you crossed the first lap, is where you finished the race but Evans was able to advance from ninth to eighth in race one.

In race two, the Australian knew a better start helped him out and he was able to achieve that, crossing the line in sixth the first time around. He was then involved in a race-long battle with riders ahead and behind, but he kept posting strong, consistent lap times and received the chequered flag in sixth. His 28-point tally was four more than his previous best and gives him a lot of confidence that things can get even better in future rounds.

“Today was my best points tally of the season, so I am very happy with how the weekend went,” Evans said. “I got my joint-highest moto finish with a sixth in race two and that was after an eighth in race one, so two results inside the top ten and not too far away from a top-five overall. I knew the starts would be important, so that helped, but it felt good to be battling the whole motos and fighting for every position. Now I have a couple of weeks to improve more and I’m feeling confident that this is going to be the start of some really good results.”

Next up for Evans is a new circuit in Samota-Sumbawa, Indonesia on 25-26 June. This gives Evans a weekend off to recover from this run of three races in three weekends, and prepare himself for what should be a totally different experience on what will be a brand-new facility, built specifically for this upcoming GP.
