Van Horebeek Victorious in Lamezia Terme

160210_104

Jeremy Van Horebeek took victory last weekend in the MX Elite race on Sunday during the second round of the 2016 Internazionali d’Italia Motocross at the Lamezia Terme track in Calabria. 2015 World Champion Romain Febvre did not start the main event after an unfortunate opening lap crash in the MX1 race sent the French rider to the hospital for stitches in his elbow.

Van Horebeek took a strong start in the Elite race to lead Evgeny Bobryshev on the hardpack, and kept the speed high in the tight but sandy turns. Pushing away from the rest of the pack, the two riders maintained a brisk and relentless competition until Bobryshev’s late mistake in a corner caused him to slip and lose contact with the Belgian Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team rider.

Kemea Yamaha Official MX Team rider Valentin Guillod finished the Elite race fourth ahead of DP19 Yamaha Official rider David Philippaerts in seventh in the MX Elite race. In the MX1 event it was Van Horebeek in second behind Bobryshev, with Guillod and Philippaerts in fifth and sixth place, respectively.

In MX2 young Swedish DP19 Yamaha Official MX Team rider Alvin Ostlund claimed the final podium step in third and his Italian teammate Morgan Lesiardo two spots back in fifth, while in the Elite race pitting the top 20 MX1 together with the top 20 MX2 it was Ostlund nearly cracking the Top 10 in 11th and Lesiardo right behind in 13th.
