Todd Waters to Make MXGP Return at MXGP of Lombardia This Weekend
HRC Honda's Todd Waters will make his retun to racing at this weekends MXGP of Lombardia in Italy, after being sidelined for a month recovering from a collarbone operation.

Waters recently had a successful two-day test in the Netherlands to get some more track-time ahead of his official return to action, after getting back on the bike for the first time only last week. With no pain or discomfort in his collarbone, the Australian rider is now ready for some MXGP action.

"I‰Ûªm feeling good heading into the weekend. I‰Ûªve had a good couple of days of testing with the team, we made some big improvements with the bike and that brought some fresh confidence," Waters explained.

After breaking his collarbone during the first moto of the Latvian MXGP at Kegums back on May 13th, he now feels fit enough to go the distance of a GP weekend.

"I‰Ûªm getting more confident every lap after the injury: it‰Ûªs only a month after the operation so it‰Ûªs still very fresh, but it‰Ûªs in the past now so I‰Ûªm ready for some action this weekend," Waters added.

With the Italian MXGP being HRC's home round he is also looking forward to performing in front of the teams home crowd.

"I love going to Italy: I‰Ûªve heard it‰Ûªs going to be hot so I‰Ûªm going to enjoy that side as well. Overall I‰Ûªm pretty excited after missing the last few rounds so I can‰Ûªt wait to get back racing the GPs," He concluded.

HRC General Manager - MXGP - Marcus Pereira de Freitas is happy to have Waters back and head into the home round with a full team with Waters re-joining team mates Tim Gajser and Calvin Vlaanderen.

"We are happy to welcome Todd back after his shortened debut in Latvia: last week he jumped back on his Honda bike for the first time and since then he has ridden almost every day, showing no discomfort or pain. We did a test with him in the last two days and it all went well, so he‰Ûªs ready to go," Pereira de Freitas said.

The MXGP of Lombardia, round ten of the 2018 Motocross World Championship, will begin this Saturday with qualifying and racing on Sunday.
