Dan Thornhill has secured a wildcard entry for the French MXGP World Championship taking place this weekend around the Villars sous Ecot circuit. Thornhill will contest the final GP of the year for the Cab Screens Husqvarna Motocross Team.
Thornhill will join other Brits in the form of Max Anstie, Tommy Searle, Shaun Simpson and Ryan Houghton behind the MXGP start gate this weekend.
Dan Thornhill: “The opportunity arose with the team to do the final GP. I had mixed thoughts at first but then realised not everyone gets an opportunity like this and if you never try you’ll never know. It’s a massive step and one hell of a challenge but the Cab Screens Huqvarna team have given me the chance and I just want to go there and take every bit of experience possible. The track looks cool and pretty natural which I like and regarding expectations.. I have none, just to go there and kick the ass out of this experience and see where we end up! A massive thanks to everyone involved in helping me to here!
