Suzuki heads to Argentina without Ben Townley
Team Suzuki World MXGP today fly out of Amsterdam for the long trip to Neuquen, Argentina for the fourth round of the 2016 FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship and will travel without Ben Townley.

The 31 year old is still physically weak from the virus he suffered prior to the Grand Prix of Europe over Easter weekend and decided together with team management to convalesce and miss the Argentine and Mexican rounds in the 10 days.

‰ÛÏBen was sick before Valkenswaard and since then has still been very tired and is sleeping a lot,‰Û

Kevin Strijbos will be the only Team Suzuki rider under the MX1 tent this weekend
Kevin Strijbos will therefore make his first appearance around the fast and undulating curves of the volcanic earth-based layout just outside of Villa La Angostura alone. The Belgian missed the inaugural Grand Prix at the site in 2015 due to injury but now heads into a new challenge fit and building confidence after some promising speed at Valkenswaard.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªve done some riding with the same bike we raced at Valkenswaard as the other bikes were crated and sent to Argentina, so we‰Ûªve done quite a few laps and I‰Ûªm happy,‰Û
