Suzuki MX1 Ready for Dutch Sand
Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MX1 will see Clement Desalle wearing the red plate as FIM MX1 Motocross World Championship leader when the series reconvenes this coming weekend at Valkenswaard for the Grand Prix of the Netherlands.
Round two of 15 means the Belgian team will make the short trip to the venue close to Eindhoven with Desalle looking for his second victory in a row and the team searching their first triumph in the dark shallow sand since 2008.
The Bulgarian Grand Prix winner two weeks ago has unfinished business at the technical course on his works RM-Z450; having fallen in the opening stages of the 2010 edition and suffering a dislocation of his shoulder. It was one of only four occasions in his maiden term with Suzuki that he failed to make the podium.
“You know, last year was last year; this weekend is a whole new event even if it is the same track,” the 21 year old said. “I am feeling good and felt comfortable in the sand at Mons last weekend. I was a bit sick for a few days but I have been following my usual programme of training this week. I hate the question about having a goal for a particular race or weekend. For me the goal is always the same and that’s to do my best, whether that means a win, podium or somewhere else; then that is what I will take.”
