Team STR KTM are pleased to announce that Bryan Mackenzie will be joining the team to ride the last few rounds of the FIM Motocross World Championship this season following Nez Parker’s season ending injury, sustained at Matterley Basin. Nez snapped his LCL in his right knee as well as suffering damage to the meniscus. He had surgery last week to repair the damage and is already on the road to recovery.
Team Manager, Steve Turner, said: “Bryan filled in for the injured Cedric Melotte a few years ago at CAS Honda and turned in some impressive performances and we’ll be hoping he does the same for us. He’ll be joining Matiss Karro’s replacement Jamie Law this weekend in the deep sand of Lierop, which won’t be easy. You definitely wouldn’t choose this one for your first GP, but Bryan is experienced and up for the challenge.”
Bryan Mackenzie added, “It’s been a while since I last rode a Grand Prix because of the age ruling in MX2 but I’m pretty excited to be getting a go at it on a great team like Team STR KTM.”
Bryan Mackenzie will join forces with Jamie Law this weekend (01 and 02 September) for the GP of Benelux at Lierop in the Netherlands, the 14th round of the 16 GP season. The circuit is another of those brutal sand traps so common to the region and will be physically very demanding for the riders. However both Team STR KTM riders are up for the challenge and determined to impress with top 20 points scoring places in both Championship races on Sunday.
