Liam Everts: “I am very happy to be back on the MXGP grid. The start of the weekend was a bit difficult, but I felt more comfortable from session to session. During the races I noticed that I haven’t been on the bike for a few weeks and accordingly I’m very happy with 14th and 13th place.“
The next race for DIGA Procross KTM Racing will take place on April 24 in Kegums, Latvia.
