Back to home turf for HRC MX2 – Michele Cervellin

Scritto mercoledì 12 aprile 2017 alle 09:44.

This weekend will be the first of the two home races for Michele Cervellin and his CRF250RW as the FIM world championship heads to Arco; Italy.

This will be a welcome return to familiar ground for Cervellin after his first taste of competing in the MXGP fly aways has come with a whole host of new challenges and mixed results. After improving on his starts in Mexico, the Italian will be looking to break into the top six who all run at a similar pace in the highly competitive MX2 class.

With rain forecast over the weekend this could prove to make the hard-packed track, a little muddy for the first day of racing. The first MX2 qualifying race starts at 16h25 local time on Saturday 15th April.


Michele Cervellin  747

Non vedo l’ora di tornare in Europa in questo fine settimana. La pista che conosco bene ed è davvero vicino a casa mia, quindi sono un local qui. Ho corso in Europa lo scorso anno così mi sento più a mio agio a tornare alle piste che conosco, il che significa che si spera di fare meglio sia per me che per la squadra. I primi GP mi hanno isegnato molto, posso a frutto nelle mie gare in Europa.

I am looking forward to heading back into Europe this weekend. The track I know well and it is really close to my home so its a local one for me. I raced in Europe last year so I feel more comfortable coming back to tracks that I know which means I will hopefully do better for myself and the team. The first few rounds I have learnt a lot which I can put into my racing in Europe.

Ovviamente, stiamo solo facendo correre Cervellin in MX2 in questo round. Lo scorso fine settimana ha raccolto un piccolo infortunio in una gara italiana, ma spero che questo non sarà per lui un handicap nel fine settimana. Questo è un terreno di casa per Cervellin così ora è tornato su un terreno familiare e siamo alla ricerca di un top five/six risultato, lui conosce la pista molto bene. Non v’è alcun motivo per cui non possiamo aspettarci di essere lassù nei risultati.

Obviously, we are only running Cervellin in MX2 at this round. Last weekend he picked up a small injury in an Italian race but hopefully this won’t be handicap him too much this weekend. This is home soil for Cervellin so now he is back on familiar ground we are looking for a top five/six result as he knows the track very well. There is no reason why we can’t expect to be up there in results.
