– Twelve riders will sadly miss the Grand Prix of Switzerland. There is some good news, however, as Tommy Searle and Davy Pootjes will finally return to racing! An abundance of injury updates have been chucked into this MX Vice feature.

–  Rain has battered Frauenfeld-Gachnang ahead of the Swiss Grand Prix, so conditions are rather sloppy currently. Is that expected to change? That information, as well as some other pre-race thoughts, is available in the MX Vice pre-race report.

– We are in the regular time zone, CET, this weekend, so we are an hour ahead of the United Kingdom. Nine hours separate us from California, but we are only six ahead of Florida. We are also seven hours behind of those in Sydney.
