Waters Looking Forward to Returning to European Soil
27-year-old Waters 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.
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."

Fresh from the second place in Semarang that helped him move up to fourth in the standings, Tim now hopes to bring his Honda CRF450RW even closer to the championship‰Ûªs top-three.
The 1.586km (0.98mile) hard-pack track located in the north-western part of the country ‰ÛÒ close to the border with Germany and is among Tim Gajser‰Ûªs favourites.

The Slovenian rider was on the podium in the two editions of the Czech round he contested in the MXGP class, with a second place in 2016 that was followed by a first-moto win and a third overall last year.

Fresh from the second place in Semarang that helped him move up to fourth in the standings, Tim now hopes to bring his Honda CRF450RW even closer to the championship‰Ûªs top-three.

"We had some time to relax and work hard ahead of the MXGP of Czech Republic and I‰Ûªm ready to get started again." Gasjer stated. " I like the track: it‰Ûªs quite hard-pack with some stones, so I‰Ûªll be looking for a strong result there aboard my CRF.

"This time around I expect a lot of my home fans to come supporting me as it‰Ûªs not too far from Slovenia, so I‰Ûªm even more excited for the weekend."

Calvin came very close to winning the Dutch Masters of Motocross last weekend after scoring the overall victory in the last of four events for the national series
Calvin Vlaanderen is a man on a mission, after what was a remarkable and memorable Indonesian trip for the 22-year-old rider from Cape Town, who is looking as comfortable as ever aboard the all-new Honda CRF250RW.

Calvin came very close to winning the Dutch Masters of Motocross last weekend after scoring the overall victory in the last of four events for the national series, and he is now ready to keep his podium streak alive heading into the last third of the season.

"I‰Ûªm looking forward to racing at Loket," Vlaanderen commented. "I have enjoyed my time in Indonesia a lot but I‰Ûªm happy to be back in Europe and be racing closer to where I live.

"We raced last weekend in the Dutch championship and, even if I didn‰Ûªt get the title, I still got a great result which surely helps in adding some more confidence heading into this new round of MX2. I‰Ûªm really feeling great on my CRF and we have shown we can be on the podium at very different tracks, so the target stays the same: race hard and finish as high as we can."
