Injured factory MXGP riders Clement Desalle and Max Nagl are both bidding to be fit to race at the Czech GP at Loket next weekend. Nagl is this week having his first rides back on his factory Husqvarna, three weeks after breaking his ankle at the German GP at Teutschenthal. Nagl, who was the red plate holder prior to his crash, is still fourth in the series but is now 97 points behind series leader Romain Febvre.

Desalle is already doing fitness training following the knee he hurt at the French GP. "My knee is improving but not perfect yet. I hope to be back in Loket after a test beginning of next week on the bike," said the factory Suzuki rider. Despite no-scores in the past five rounds, the Belgian is currently sixth in the series but is 166 points off the lead
