9th ROUND FIM MOTOCROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MX2 – UDDEVALLA – SWEDEN

MIXED FORTUNES IN THE GRAND PRIX OF SWEDEN FOR HONDA GARIBOLDI ESTA RIDERS

TONKOV, HONDA GARIBOLDI

 

 

For the 9th round of the Motocross World Championship in Uddevalla, Sweden, riders found once more a track flooded by the heavy rain fallen on the circuit and again very difficult conditions to race.

 

The russian Aleksandr TONKOV was back again in good form after his injury and showed top speed with the 4th best laptime in the Pre-Qualifying on the Saturday. On the Sunday Tonkov finish a very good 7th in the first moto coming from mid pack and passing many riders in front of him and showing that he has found the speed of the first GP’s when he impressed many for his start of the season. In the second moto Tonkov was again in the top ten but was hampered by another rider who crashed on him and after a few laps he was forced to retire. The russian will be for sure one of the contenders for the top places for the second half of the season.

 

The strong british Max ANSTIE had an unlucky moto one where he crashed in the muddy track and finish a good 13th in the second race coming back from the last positions. With a bit of luck Anstie will be again in the top five of the championship.
