Max Nagl is back racing

Max Nagl has been away from the MXGP tracks since the GP Italy in Fermo in September 2011 when he decided to undergo a back surgery. His comeback was supposed to be in the beginning of the 2012 season, but there were some complications in his recovery, which prevented him to be on his bike when they had planned.
The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Max Nagl took part in the fifth round of the ADAC MX Masters this weekend to start getting ready for his comeback to the FIM Motocross World Championship and he went out with the overall victory. It was not an easy race for the German rider, but Nagl had really good starts, a good rhythm on his KTM and he was able to keep the lead until the end of the heats even having his compatriot Marcus Schiffer making pressure from behind.
At the end of the day Max Nagl said: “I did not expect to win this weekend, I thought I would have been really tired by the end of the race, but I had good starts and I could slow down a little bit the rhythm towards the end in order to control the heats. I am really happy for this comeback to the races. It has been fantastic, but it has not been easy due to the rain and mud. I am now tired and I have a headache, but I’m happy!”
