 TONKOV, HONDA GARIBOLDI

In front of 40,000 spectators on the scenic track of Teutschenthal in Germany, the russian Aleksandr TONKOV took a strong top 10 finish with two consistent motos and despite the green grid in his rear brake in the first race when he was battling for 6th position. The young russian of the Honda Gariboldi-ESTA team confirmed that he will be among the contenders for a podium next season in the MX2-GP.

 

Teutschenthal was the last GP for Max ANSTIE on the Honda CRF and the british had his head already pointed at the MXoN next week in Lommel, scoring only a modest 17th place in Germany which does not reflect his potential.

 

“Unfortunately I touched the green grid which delimits the track after four laps when I was battling for the 6th place in the first moto and I had to race without the rear brake, but I’m quite happy and my speed is there. Next year with a good winter I will improve again.” commented the russian Aleksandr Tonkov.

 

“It’s the last GP of the year and I want to say that it has been a positive season for all of us with a top 7 finish in the MX2 class and discovering more and more the Honda CRF. We have many news and surprises for next season and our partnership with Honda Europe will strengthen for the coming years but, we will announce everything in a press conference on the Saturday in Lommel for the MXoN.” commented Team Manager Giacomo Gariboldi.
