"It‰Ûªs good to be back racing and it‰Ûªs good to back at the GPs with everyone, even though there is a few restrictions. I‰Ûªm just glad to be here racing really because the surgeon told me when I first had my operation that I would be out for six months so to be on the line in four months, I‰Ûªm pretty happy with it," Evans said.
"Unfortunately I got caught up in the first turn pile ups in both motos, and fought my way back to 19th and 18th so it wasn‰Ûªt great but I‰Ûªm treating it as a building process and I need to regroup for Wednesday and work on my starts in order to make my life a bit easier. Still, the first race is done and I‰Ûªm sure I‰Ûªll feel better and better as the season progresses."
With the next round on Wednesday, the riders don‰Ûªt have much time to prepare themselves again, but both are confident that they can ride even better when they return on August 12th in what should be another hot day at the sandy circuit. Evans will be hoping to show more improvement but both are excited to finally be back racing the world motocross championship once again.
