Calvin Vlaanderen has spent the days after Sevlievo trying to recover from the big crash he had in the first MX2 moto at Sevlievo last Sunday, which ruled him out for the second race, too. The good news for the 22-year-old from Cape Town is the absence of muscle tear in his right leg ‰ÛÒ meaning that, despite still being in pain, Calvin has not been diagnosed with any major injury. Todd Waters will try to further improve his race day performance while aiming at getting closer to the top-ten.
"I have been doing my best to get back to near full fitness after the crash in Sevlievo, and I must say I feel a little better," Vlaanderen said. "It has been a relief to know that I have no major injury but surely some effects of the tumble and the moments afterwards will still be there. Nevertheless, we are motivated to do well in Turkey and hopefully it‰Ûªll be a track that suits my style and my Honda!"
Todd Waters is still searching for speed following a broken collarbone. The Australian has spent the last few days getting aclimated with Turkey.
"We have spent a few days in Turkey and now we are ready to race at this new racetrack," Waters enthused. "It will be nice to be getting to grips with it at the same time as everybody else, so we‰Ûªll see how it goes. We made some improvements last time out in Bulgaria, even though there‰Ûªs still a lot to do, but I want to get better and be further up in the timesheets to end the season the best possible way," Waters concluded.
