WORLD CROSS CHAMPIONSHIP
After five years absence, the French region of Belgium, the Wallonie, has hosted a Motocross Grand Prix. It’s been the new track of Bastogne to play host to the eighth round of the Motocross World Championship and to see MIVV clinching good results both in MX1 and MX2.
In the major class, Davide Guarneri has posted a very positive eighth spot in Race 2, after a brilliant start which saw him circulating in third at the very first lap. Unfortunately, the Silver Action Team’s star has experienced a problem at the front wheel of his KTM SX-F 450 in the opening race, which forced him into the pits and vanished the hopes of a good spot at the end of the day.
In MX2 Josè Butron ended both races in the top ten, which granted him the eighth spot in the Grand Prix of Belgium, despite a less then good position at the starting gate.
Josè Butron: “in Saturday’s timed practice I struggled to fine good lines, as a result of which I couldn’t pick up a good spot for the start. Notwithstanding this, I had a good start in the first moto and I came back to eighth. In the second moto I had an even better start, I was fourth on the first lap, but then I started to get tired as I had spent a lot of energy in Race 1 and couldn’t keep the rhythm of the guys at the front. I have been suffering a little bit in the final stages of the race and I ended up tenth, which meant the eighth spot overall of the GP…not bad!”.
