HARRI KULLAS IN LOKET

For the 12th Round of the FIM World Championship the circus was moving this time toward the Czeck Republic on the thought circuit of Loket and under extreme meteo conditions which brought heavy rain for most of the weekend. The finnish rider Harri KULLAS again finished a Top 10 of the GP despite some misfortune during both races. In race 1 after a good start in 7th position, Kullas followed the pace for most of the race keeping his place but at 3 laps from the end he started experiencing some problems with his fork and has to slow down a bit loosing positions and finishing a good 10th anyway. In race 2, Kullas just before the start was stung by a bee and took the start with some pain and had to race a bit limited and after a start in 14th position he could pass some rider in front of him and finish 11th. French rider Christophe CHARLIER had a great first race when he finished 7th after a good start in the front pack and keeping the pace of the leaders almost all the race and just got tired in the last laps when he was passed by Paulin Gautier. In the second race after a great start in 3rd position, he crashed in first lap and was forced to retire. A pity for a lost result which could have been the best of the season so far for Charlier.

Now, in two weks time, the trip to Brasil for the 13th round of the World Championship.

CHRISTOPHE CHARLIER IN LOKET

Harri Kullas, Yamaha Monster Energy Gariboldi, 10th:

“It was a hard track and I’m not so strong on this type of terrain yet but I know I can be in the top ten every moto. The first race went well until the last lap when I made a mistake not jumping the double and lost a position, which was frustrating. I made too many errors. I hit some soft mud out of the gate in the second race and this dragged me back a bit. I was fourteenth on the first lap and rode back to eleventh. I was lapped at the end so I know my speed was not the best! I will train more now and see what happens in Brazil.”


Christophe Charlier, Yamaha Monster Energy Gariboldi, 15th:

“I’m happy with the first moto, I started well and had a good rhythm. Gautier just passed me at the end but I thought it was a good ride. I was third at the beginning of the second moto but slid out on the jump and was lucky that no-one hit me. I hurt my hip a little bit and could not finish but I hope for more good starts in Brazil.”


ANCORA UN TOP 10 PER HARRI KULLAS NEL GP DI LOKET MX2 !

Per il 12° round del Campionato Mondiale Motocross MX2 il circus si spostava in Repubblica Ceca sull’impegnativo tracciato duro di Loket che per l’occasione si trasformava in una vera palude per le acque torrenziali che affliggevano il paese nei giorni precedenti la gara. Il pilota finlandese del Team Yamaha Gariboldi Monster Energy, Harri KULLAS ancora una volta coglieva un prestigioso piazzamento rientrando nella Top 10 di giornata nonostante una serie di eventi sfortunati che segnavano le sue gare. In gara 1 partito nei primi sette, Kullas teneva il passo per tutta la gara del gruppo di testa e solamente a tre giri dal termine un problema alla forcella lo costringeva ad abbassare il ritmo e a perdere qualche posizione per finire comunque ottimo 10°. In gara 2 il finlandese veniva punto al collo prima della partenza da un’ape che lo costringeva a partire stringendo i denti in 14a posizione e a risalire con fatica fino alla 11a posizione finale. Il francese Christophe CHARLIER indovinava in gara 1 un’ottima partenza e si univa al gruppo di testa precedendo il suo compagno di squadra. Per tutta la gara Charlier teneva la 6a posizione e solo all’ultimo giro lasciava il passo al connazionale Gautier Paulin. In gara 2 il francese partiva in 3a posizione e nel primo giro uno schizzo del concorrente che lo precedeva gli toglieva la visuale per qualche istante e la caduta spettacolare era inevitabile e fortunatamente senza conseguente per il pilota che era però costretto al ritiro.

Tra due settimane tappa in Brasile per la 13a prova del Campionato Mondiale 2010.
