Conrad Mewse has recently had a wrist operation which rules him out of action for the foreseeable future.
The Hitachi KTM fuelled by Milwaukee team announced recently in a press release that they’d look to have a replacement rider for the MX2 World Championship in Portugal. “Bas Vaessen – and may be joined in the Team with a replacement rider from the MXGP series at Agueda onwards until Conrad can return”, the team stated.
Youthstream have released the entry lists for the MX2 World Championship taking place in Portugal this weekend and it lists Alexander Brown riding with the Hitachi KTM fuelled by Milwaukee team.
The young Scottish rider is tipped by many as the next big thing from the UK not already in the GP paddock so he’ll be hoping to learn a lot during his time in the MX2 World Championship until Conrad Mewse is back with the team.
We are still awaiting official confirming from the team but we will bring the news to you.
