Team HRC Carry Momentum Into Czech Republic

Posted:

The Czech Republic plays host to round 14 of the MXGP series on 26-27 July, which is held once again at the Loket track in the west of the country, near the German border.

The championship heads into the final furlong as Loket represents the start of the first of two back-to-back races that round out the season ‰ÛÒ from Czech Republic to Belgium followed by Goiania to Mexico, albeit after the summer break in the wake of the cancellation of the Ukrainian round.

Last year Evgeny Bobryshev took third overall in the MXGP of the Czech Republic for Honda with fifth and third place finishes respectively in the two races, though unfortunately Max was sidelined with the Epstein-Barr virus.

This year the fortunes are reversed as Bobby sits it out whilst in convalesce whilst Max continues to build upon his momentum of strong results since returning in Germany last month.

"The track was changed last year but I didn‰Ûªt ride it then so it‰Ûªs something new for me this time." Nagl stated. "It‰Ûªs a track I like though as it‰Ûªs still old school. It‰Ûªs very slippery but the ground is very special ‰ÛÒ it‰Ûªs the only track on the MXGP calendar where you need to have some tyre management during the race which is quite cool.

"You try to have not too much wheel spin else you have no grip for the last ten minutes so I like this.

"After Finland I was a bit disappointed with my physical condition in the race so I worked hard the week after on training and I‰Ûªm feeling good. I raced in Genk on Monday, and now I‰Ûªm already not so far from Loket training, so we‰Ûªre working hard to make it to the podium on Sunday." Nagl concluded.

Loket has been a mainstay of motocross in the region, tracing its roots back to October 1972. Since then, the hard-pack track has undergone many modifications and alterations but the result is a fantastic venue that the MXGP paddock enjoys racing at.
