CHARLIER ON THE GAS AT ST. JEAN D'ANGELY

The flying french Christophe CHARLIER returned from his hand injury to the Grand Prix of France to post an extraordinary 6th place in the first moto and, in the second moto after crashing with the american Osborne in the first lap was cruising from the 34th place at the very back of the field to take the 11th and passing fast riders like Frossard and Herlings and signing the fastest laps of the race !!! An impressive performance that showed the real potential of the 18 years old from Ajaccio, and finally when his hand will be completly right could start pointing to the podium of each race! The finn Harri KULLAS, posted also another top performance for his first season in the world championship finishing 8th and 11th despite struggling to get rid of a light concussion due to the crash with the Redbull arch in the last GP. Kullas made two great starts and could manage to finish once more in the top 10 and also back in the top 10 of the GP-MX2 standings with the same point of english Nicholls.

The next GP will be run in two weeks time on the superb german track of Teutschental and we really look forward to see what our teenagers will be able to show there !

KULLAS ON THE GAS AT ST. JEAN D'ANGELY


Christophe Charlier, Yamaha Monster Energy Gariboldi, 9th:

“I’m happy to come back from my hand injury in this way. I was fifht for a long time in the first moto but than we had many lapped riders in front and because of this I lost my advantage on Roelants who passed me in the last lap. In the second moto I started well, I was passing in 5th position before the end of the first lap but Osborne crashed on me and I had to start last and 10 seconds behind the last rider and I was really very far behind but I just concentrated on taking as many riders as I could and passed Frossard and Herlings to reach the 11th. My first home GP was fun and all the crowd cheered me on every lap which felt special.”


Harri Kullas, Yamaha Monster Energy Gariboldi, 11th:

“I’m really happy about this weekend because I left the USA with a small concussion after tha bridge fell on me and I was tired all week and couldn’t concentrate on Saturday but all came good today. I had a decent night’s sleep and a better feeling on the bike. I had two good starts in the top ten and I was riding smart and doing my best without taking many risks. Finally I was 11th overall which was good in these conditions. Now I have time to rest to be 100% fit in Germany.”


UN’ALTRA GRANDE PRESTAZIONE PER I TEENAGERS CHARLIER E KULLAS NEL CAMPIONATO MONDIALE MX2 IN FRANCIA !


Il corso volante al rientro dopo l’infortunio alla mano che lo aveva costretto a fermarsi per due GP, nel Gran Premio di Francia ha impressionato per la ritrovata velocità con il 6° posto in gara 1 dove solo i doppiati all’ultimo giro gli hanno fatto perdere la 5a posizione a favore del belga Roelants. In gara 2 invece nonostante il la caduta causata da un contatto con un irruento Osborne al primo giro quando era in 5a posizione, Charlier ripartiva in fondo al gruppo staccato 10 secondi dall’ultimo concorrente e con una rimonta furiosa si riportava dalla 34a posizione fino all’11a, passando e lasciando sul posto piloti come Frossard e Herlings e segnando in tutta la manche tra i più veloci giri in pista ! Un pilota finalmente ritrovato dopo un inizio di stagione costellato da piccoli infortuni che gli hanno impedito di battersi ad armi pari con i vari Roczen, Herlings e Frossard ! Il finlandese Harri Kullas porta a casa un altro super risultato con l’8° e l’11° posto nonostante il leggero trauma cranico subito solamente una settimana fa in USA e non ancora riassorbito. Una volta ancora nei top 10 di questo mondiale 2010 il finlandese si conferma la rivelazione di questa stagione !
