Evgeny will pilot a Munn Racing KTM powered by EBR Performance 450 for the team for the remaining rounds. 250 rider Todd krieg and Vince Friese returned this week to join the new members for some great racing at Budds Creek.
Vince Friese came out swinging in the 450 class and was able to score some points on his Munn Racing KTM placing 18th overall on the day. Friese is improving every week and is looking to make the top ten in the upcoming rounds. Evgeny Mikhaylov from Russia rode great as well. He was able to put himself in the main motos and rode great all day long. Mikhaylov will be looking to score some points at Southwick in the ever competitive 450 class.
