In only his third GP back in action Husqvarna Motorcycles’ Nathan Watson has ended the MXGP of the Czech Republic with two 10th place finishes for a career best 10th overall.
Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl will not compete in this weekend’s MXGP of the Czech Republic, round 13 of the 2015 FIM Motocross World Championship.
Working determinedly in recent weeks in order to make a return to MXGP racing following his left ankle injury and subsequent surgery during the GP of Germany, the decision not to compete at Locket was taken following a practice session earlier this week. Although able to ride, discomfort from his ankle after riding and a subsequent medical check-up determined that Max will have to wait a little longer before he can return to racing.
Max Nagl: “This is really disappointing. But as much as I want to return to racing for myself and for the team, it’s not something I can do before I am fully ready. Despite doing all I can I am not ready yet, my leg needs more time to heal. I rode earlier this week but pain in my ankle showed me that I am not ready. It is really frustrating but I have to listen to my body and return when I know I am ok to do so.”
For Husqvarna’s MXGP class riders the GP of Latvia proved to be a tough one.With Max Nagl not competing as he works towards his return to racing at round 13 of the MXGP series in the Czech Republic, it was left to Australian’s Todd Waters to lead the way. Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna factory Racing’s Todd Waters placed in 12th overall. 10th in moto two for Waters was the best results from the Aussie.
With round 11 of the series heading north to Sweden, the tough and technical Uddevalla circuit marked yet another strong showing for the Swedish Husqvarna brand with Todd Waters placing fifth overall in the highly competitive MXGP class.
