With his injuries now healed up Mitch Evans’s race fitness is also on the improve.

Mitch Evans continues to improve after returning from injury with another top ten performance at the MXGP Of Sumbawa

Evans carded a top-three off the start in race one but periodically surrendered places through the early laps to rivals who have been racing at the sharp end all summer but still looked secure in seventh after twenty minutes before the heat started to take its toll and his lap-times, in common with most of the field, increased significantly and he was pushed back to ninth at the finish.

A solid opening lap to race two found the Australian eighth and he found a consistent rhythm to take over his eventual seventh on the eleventh of seventeen laps for eighth overall on the day.

The solid scoreline sees him move up to eighteenth in the series standings despite missing the opening four rounds and further significant advances are on the cards in coming weeks with just thirty-one points to twelfth.

“My start was really good in moto one but I just struggled a little in the heat towards the end. I had a better feeling physically in race two and could make a couple of good passes for seventh. We keep making steps every week so that’s good,” Evans said.

Evans will be back in action next weekend as MXGP will remain in Indonesia this week for the Grand Prix of Lombok.
