Steven Clarke returned to the FIM Motocross World Championship this year, after signing a deal with the Carglass Honda outfit to contest EMX250 series. Clarke has not fared too well in the series, which he has won before, though, as he has just two top-five finishes to his name. A moto win in Russia is a bright spot for the British star.
With no races to contest this weekend, Clarke has elected to try and prove himself in the premier division. Clarke, with support from Carglass Honda, will contest the MXGP class at the Grand Prix of Germany as a wildcard. "I'm excited to announce I will be racing the MXGP of Germany this weekend in the MXGP class," Clarke said in a statement. "It's a good chance to see how I go against some of the best riders in the world on a track that I believe suites me perfectly. No expectations, purely for fun and the drive to compete at a higher level. Bring on the clay."
