Cervellin shapes up for Teutschental2017-05-17 13:07
The eighth round of MXGP will take place this weekend in Teutschenthal Germany, where Michele Cervellin will be riding the CRF250RW for team HRC MX2.
Having struggled in the last few rounds with a niggling hand injury, Cervellin heads into Germany this weekend with his championship goal back in focus. He has been training again in the last few weeks which should improve his performance. He has been unable to execute any training to its’ full extent since the Mexican GP.
The hard pack track should suit the Italian, who has performed well in previous rounds with similar terrain.
MX2 qualifying starts at 16h15 on Saturday 20th May.

I feel my hand is over the worst now and this week I have taken part in an Italian championship and got back into some normal training, which is good. Teutschental is a hard pack track which I like and reminds me alot of Italian tracks. I think it is one of the best tracks on the calendar. I am going to try to do my best but I will be doing alot better than I did in Latvia hopefully.

Cervellin appears to be over the worst of his hand injury now and competed in a race over the weekend which pulled in a good result. He has been able to do some training so we expect him to be back where he should be this weekend, mixing with the top six to get his championship focus back on track.
