Kawasaki Racing team rider Ivo Monticelli had a mixed bag of results at Orlyonok this weekend, at the opening MXGP round in Russia.

After grabbing a decent tenth in timed qualifying, the Italian had a huge off on one of the hills in the first MXGP moto of the day getting stuck underneath his Kawasaki, causing him to sit out the second moto.

Taking to social media to show the results of the crash yesterday, confirming he has no serious injuries just a bit battered and bruised, and will be lining up for Matterley Basin in two weeks’ time.
