MX-GP: Potisek replaces Frossard in Germany

Potisek earned a top ten finish at Maggiora for the Italian round of the series last month and held the red plate early in the year in the competitive French national MX1 championship; a contest in which he today remains less than thirty points from first position. He is also a beach race specialist and was runner-up in the prestigious Enduropale Le Touquet event in February.

Frossard is aiming to be back on his factory YZ450F for the British Grand Prix next month after successful surgery on his left foot last week. The Frenchman had pins inserted in the two fractured metatarsals and the procedure enabled the bones to be closely set.

Frossard, the 2011 MX1 world championship runner-up, suffered the breaks during the Grand Prix of Finland last week and now must enter a period of convalescence and rehab to be strong enough to remount his works YZ and close-out a disrupted and desperately unlucky 2013 campaign.
