#CzechGP: DOMINIQUE AEGERTER EYES A RESTART AS THE SEASON TO HEAD INTO THE SECOND PART

#DA77: EYES A RESTART AS THE SEASON TO HEAD INTO THE SECOND PART

Despite his trip to the endurance classic race in Suzuka last weekend, the ambitious athlete from Rohrbach arrives well-rested for the opening round of the second part of the season this weekend in the Czech Republic.

This weekend’s round ten of the season at the magnificent Brno track in South Moravia also can look back on a long tradition in the world championship’s calendar. Swiss Moto2™ star Dominique Aegerter is coming from a short vacation time for him but feeling freshly recharged his batteries and more important, also improving in terms of his health conditions following a long-time injury to his right pelvic. Therefore, the 27-year-old from the canton of Bern and his crew want to turn the spit in the second half of the season. The base for this goal should be done this weekend at the hilly Automotodrom Brno.

#77 Dominique AEGERTER (Kiefer Racing), World Championship position 16 (24 points):

"After my Suzuka adventure, I’m looking forward to return to my real team. At the same time, I’m glad that the series will continue after the summer break because over the duration of the last weeks I’ve noticed very clearly that my condition regarding to the pelvic injury suffered last April is getting better every day. So, this means I’m full of energy, even though the break was very short for me. Brno, however, is a more difficult place for me. Due to its width and the many fast changes of direction, I have always been a bit harder for me at this track. Nevertheless, I’m heading with a good feeling and fresh in my mind into the weekend. The start of the second half of the championship should also be a restart for what is a that much mixed year so far for us."
