114 Honda's Mitch Evan's had a tough weekend at the MXGP of Latvia.

The Australian rider placed ninth in Race 1 but unfortunately crashed out of Race 2.

He’ll regroup for the next stop on the GP tour, the Saxonian town of Teutschenthal, Eastern Germany in one week’s time.

“It was a tough day today. I had a decent start in race one from a pretty poor gate choice and made my way forward into ninth place. After my qualifying race crash I didn’t really gel with the track and struggled to find my flow but I was quite happy with race one. I didn’t get a great start in race two and was battling through the pack and then had a pretty big crash again. Then after the crash I was riding in fear of crashing again. It was a tough race and a tough weekend. I’ll rest up this week and come back swinging in Teutschenthal.”
