GMR Motorex KTM racers Mitchell Evans and Egan Mastin selected for 2012 Australian FIM World Motocross Championship Team
GMR Motorex KTM racers Mitchell Evans and Egan Mastin have just received the call from Motorcycling Australia to attend the FIM World Junior Motocross Championships in Sevlievo, Bulgaria on 26 August.
Evans will be a member of the Australian contingent in the 85cc class while Mastin has been selected for the 125cc category.
2012 will be Evans’ third year as a representative of the MA contingent, while for Mastin this will be his debut on the international stage and as a representative of MA.
In 2011 Evans was reportedly the youngest racer to make the finals on board his KTM85SX on the 40 gate grid at the prestigious event with a 6th in 2010 in the 65cc a career highlight. Evans is looking to consolidate on his previous experience and recent win at the Queensland Motocross Championships.
Mastin, the 2011 Australian 85cc Junior Motocross Champion and current points leader at the NSW Championships on both the 125-150cc and 250F classes will be on board a KTM125cc in Bulgaria with an aim to continue his recent success on the larger capacity bike.
GMR Motorex KTM Team Manager Glenn Macdonald said “I am extremely proud of the boy’s selection. Mitch and Egan both have an incredible resume of results and it proves they can perform under pressure at the highest level. This will be an extremely tough expedition for the boys against the world’s best and we are certainly looking forward to supporting both boys in Bulgaria.”
Macdonald added “There is a lot of pressure in terms of preparation of our riders but all of our associated sponsors will be doing all we can to ensure we are well prepared for what will be a tough competition.”
GMR Motorex KTM racers have had great success at the FIM World Junior Motocross Championships having supported race team members Jay Wilson (1st 2009 85cc), Dylan Long (3rd 2009 85cc), Mann (9th 2010 85cc) and Reece Rayner (11th 2011 65cc) previously.
Everyone at GMR Motorex KTM, KTM Australia and our associated sponsors wish Mitch and Egan the very best of luck.
