Mackrel IN for Hawkstone International
James Mackrel has secured a last minute entry to contest Hawkstone International on the 9th of February. The Irish rider has contested the event the past two years but this will be his first time racing the MX1 class.
There’s a superb entry list for Hawkstone International this year which will see Mackrel race with some of the world’s best Motocross riders – Herlings, Coldenhoff, Bobryshev, Simpson, Searle Lieber, Covington and Vlaanderen to name just a few.
It will be a great opportunity for Mackrel to learn from the MXGP riders as he prepares for the 2020 season.
“I have done this event the past two years and I enjoy it every time I go, the decision is always easy to add it to the racing calendar. I don’t really have any expectations, I never do when I go. It’s just good to get a race under my belt before the start of the season. It’s awesome getting to ride with those top boys but I don’t really see it any differently from any other race, a race is a race and I’ll just go out and ride the way I know I can and hopefully the results will be good”, Mackrel told GateDrop.com.
