Mirsky Racing Team ready for the Monsoon Cup
[Source: Mirsky Racing Team] Despite a troubling amount of injuries plaguing the Mirsky Racing Team this season, the young team has bounced back to full fitness, and with the Monsoon Cup drawing ever closer, the young Australians are looking better than ever.
The team has returned to their Yacht Club's home town of Perth, who will be playing host to a number of the top teams in contention for the World Championship title next week in the Sunseeker Australia Cup.
"Our training has been going well" said the team's skipper, Torvar Mirsky "but the Aus Cup is going to be a great chance to measure ourselves against the others before the Monsoon Cup."
MRT is the closest team to Adam Minoprio and his BlackMatch Racing team, trailing by only 12 points. With the two youngest teams in hot contention for the title, the fight in Malaysia is set to be a fierce one. Minoprio's team has a lead that allows them some breathing room, but MRT have been working closely with Greg Kerr, the team's physiotherapist, and recent coaching improvements have allowed them to reflect upon and improve on their mistakes, so you could see a new team in Malaysia.
