Australian Mitch Evans rebounded from a race one mechanical at Valkenswaard’s third round of the 2019 MX2 World Championship last weekend, which saw him forced to make pit stop while running in P13.

The Team Honda 114 Motorsports rider, who had to make pit stop in race one at Matterley Basin’s second round one week earlier, returned to circuit to finish in 37th.

Not to be set-back by the unfortunate circumstances, Evans put on a charge around the challenging Dutch circuit, crossing the line in P10 during race two, granting him 15th overall.

“Tough day in the office riding with a lot of pain from yesterday’s crash,” Evans stated. “Moto one I made my way up to 13th before having to make a pit stop due to a mechanical, but happy with my 10th place in moto two. Keeping a smile on my face and enjoying every day, good or bad!”

Earning a podium on debut in the world championship, Evans currently sits 10th in the points rankings. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Thomas Kjer Olsen leads to series following a stellar start to the year.
