MXlarge: Stefan, congratulation on your new baby. How did it all go?
Everts: It is kind of a funny date to be born; she was born on the first of the first 2011. We went to a New Years Eve party and around 3am we went home and Kelly didn’t feel well, around 3am we went to the hospital and then at 4.50 Mylee was born. She was nearly 4kg and was 55cm long. Kelly and Mylee are doing great. I had to make a trip to America for the Supercross and I really had trouble leaving, I had already fallen in love with my girl, she is so beautiful.
MXlarge: What about America, what is your opinion of how Ken Roczen is riding?
Everts: I had planned to go the first two Supercross races, but I just went to the first one, I didn’t want to miss that. I think Ken just needs to relax a little, he is riding really excited and he needs to calm down. He can do it, without the big crowd and atmosphere is really fast. In the first round he had that crash in practice and that didn’t help, he just needs experience. He will still do the West Coast races we planned, we don’t like changing plans. As far as the Supercross races after Bulgaria, we will look at that later.
MXlarge: What about the Mantova Starcross, I heard from one of your mechanic’s that you won’t be going. What will be the plan of the team for the pre-season?
Everts: Mantova we won’t do, our first races will be the opening two rounds of the Italian Championship. We want to go there because those tracks will be the perfect preparation for the season. We don’t want to start too early, because it seems like we always start a little too early in the year and this time we will begin in the early part of March. We will for sure to do the first two rounds and then see, Jeffrey Herlings will do the Dutch Championship races.
MXlarge: It’s a pity you won’t do Mantova, but with it clashing with Valence it seems like most teams won’t be there.
Everts: The weekend of Mantova we have our photo shoot and other things in Spain. I feel sorry for Mantova, it’s a good race and they always have a good crowd and put on a really good race, but it’s too early and then the Italian Championship rounds start. Every year its three weeks too soon and we don’t want to start too early this year.
