Following round five of the 2017 Australian MX Nationals series, Aleksandr Tonkov has returned to Russia and has been released from his contractual obligations to Carroll Motorsports Pty Ltd and the MEGA Bulk Fuels Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team.
“This is not an ideal situation however we are remaining focused and we are in good spirits coming into the second half of the motocross season,” said Team Manager, Troy Carroll.
“We will continue to compete in the 2017 MX Nationals with the most promising rookie in the field, Nathan Crawford and we will hopefully be announcing a replacement rider for Tonkov shortly,” commented Troy.
