Hunter Lawrence is set to skip rounds twelve and thirteen of the FIM Motocross World Championship, it seems, after struggling in recent weeks. Lawrence will spend the month riding and testing in the USA, in an attempt to reach his former level, then return to the Grand Prix paddock at Loket at the end of July.
An official comment has not yet been made available, but confirmation from Honda or Livia Lancelot is expected later today. It is already quite clear in the paddock at Pangkal Pinang, however, as the two bikes that were shipped to Indonesia for Hunter Lawrence have not been built. They are just sat in crates and will remain untouched.
There have been rumours that Hunter Lawrence will compete in the remaining rounds of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, but our source stated that this is not the case. More on this story will be added to this post later today. Stay tuned to MX Vice for more from the Grand Prix of Indonesia!
