Team HRC’s Mitch Evans has threatened to ‘come out swinging’ for MXGP 2021 and says that he knows exactly what he needs to do in his second year with the team.

Evans sustained q left wrist injury in Spain at the end of last season and has had a difficult recovery but has another two months to prepare before the first race in Russia.

‘After re-signing with Team HRC last year, I am really hoping I can showcase my abilities in 2021. I’ve had a difficult recovery from the wrist injury but I know what I can achieve and I think I showed glimpses of that in 2020, so now I am just trying to get myself into a position where I can do it consistently in the MXGP class in 2021,” said the Australian.

“Of course, it won’t be easy as the class is filled with great riders, but I know what I am capable of and I know what it takes to achieve a title as I’m alongside the current world champ under the Team HRC awning.

“Russia is a couple of months away and I’ll be utilising that time as effectively as possible to come out swinging in round one.”
