Team HRC has arrived in Loket, Czech Republic, the venue hosting the fourteenth round of the 2018 MXGP World Championship.
Returning to Europe from two successful back-to-back events in Indonesia, the Milan-based squad now targets more strong results with its riders Tim Gajser, Calvin Vlaanderen (MX2) and Todd Waters.
Waters is fully recovered from the stomach bug that affected his performance during the Southeast Asia trip; the 27-year-old Australian will try to aim at the top-ten in his quest to return to former MXGP racing form at a track he knows from previous experiences.
"I can‰Ûªt wait to get back to action as I finally feel good after the stomach bug I got in Indonesia, which continued to affect me even after I returned to the Netherlands." Waters explained. "I went to see a doctor and after some tests, he prescribed me some antibiotics, and now I‰Ûªm as good as new!
"I raced in Czech Republic before; during my first experience in MXGP, and I really enjoyed the track and its layout. It‰Ûªs a good track to ride and even better to race on, so I‰Ûªm looking forward to that."
