Liam Everts: “On Saturday I struggled a bit with the set-up, but after some small adjustments we were able to find a great set-up for Sunday. I am very satisfied with the weekend and happy about the two top 10 results. Now it’s full focus on my home race in Lommel next weekend.“

The 23-year-old Briton Conrad Mewse, who made his debut for DIGA Procross KTM Racing in the MXGP class this weekend, looks back on a difficult MXGP in the Czech Republic. On both Saturday and Sunday, Conrad Mewse struggled with the power of the bike and the hard track, and was therefore unable to deliver his usual pace.

Conrad Mewse: “Places 27 and 24 were not what I wanted for my debut, but having only tested once on a hard track before, it was the best I could do. I am looking forward to going to the deep sand of Lommel next week.“

The next race for DIGA Procross KTM Racing will take place on 24 July in Lommel, Belgium.
