Former Grand Prix rider, Matiss Karro spent the 2017 season racing in Brazil. Unfortunately, his time in Brazil could have been better as he picked up an injury whilst over there too. However, he’s back in Europe for the 2018 season after almost giving up and retiring from the sport.

The talented Latvian rider has inked a deal with the Pfeil Kawasaki team in Germany, Karro will contest the ADAC MX Masters Championship that gets underway this weekend. He will also contest some races in Latvia too.

If his speed is good then his plan is also to contest a few MXGP World Championship rounds as a wildcard which would be good to see as he definitely has good speed if he can keep fit.

Matiss Karro: “It was good experience Brazil. I wanted to run away from Europe to start something new in racing and get away from injuries, but there I also got injured. It was different racing over there and I understood that I would like to stay in Europe. This year I have set myself different goals.

I want to enjoy every moment on bike every practise, race start lap and I want to look after myself better and then the results will come. This year I returned really late after injury so I have to build up again

I was ready to stop racing but then there is one Estonian friend Peter, who was the sponsor for me who helped me start my GP career and now h’s  called me begging of this year and he believes me and helped me to set my head to race again. I want to say BIG THANKS to him”, Karro exclusively told
