As the heavens opened over Orlyonok, #michelecervellin took his CRF250RW to the line for the first race of the MXGP of Russia.
The sudden change in weather had left the track in a sodden state, which dramatically changed the way the riders could attack the track. Taking it in his stride, Michele had a good start in the first race and entered the first corner in ninth and looked to make headway quickly. In attempt to avoid the pack and climb up one of the steeper hills on track, Michele went offline and ended up in the deep mud. Although he didn’t come off, he lost so much time digging his way out of the mud. He got back into the race as the track became slicker from the heavy rain Michele went down. He finished the race but on returning to the pits discovered he had lacerated his left arm in his crash.
After a visit to the medical centre, the Doctors prevented him from participating in the second to prevent further damage or possibility of infection.
Michele will need to rest his arm during the next two weeks in preparation for Round 11 on the 25th June in Ottobiano.
