Assomotor Honda have decided to draft in Dutch rider, Nick Kouwenberg for the MXGP of Assen taking place this weekend.
Valentin Guillod is currently out injured but he is expected to be back for the last round of the series in France. It means Kouwenberg has the opportunity to race his home GP this weekend after racing some EMX250 rounds earlier in the year.
Honda announced the news on their social media page:
“We’re looking forward to welcoming back Nick Kouwenberg, who will be racing as part of Team Assomotor at MXGP Assen in place of the injured Valentin Guillod (who should be back to action the following weekend in France)”.
