Tommy Searle overcomes misfortune

160510_1108

Tommy Searle defied a series of unfortunate incidents to post a ninth placed finish for Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki in the second moto of the Latvian round of the FIM World MXGP Motocross Championship.

The English rider went to the start of the qualification race at the rugged Kegums track full of anticipation after posting the second fastest time in each of the practice sessions, but within yards of the start two other riders collided and one of the machines bounced into his path. The inevitable poor starting place meant that he had no chance of a good start in either GP moto, but he battled valiantly to finish ninth in moto two after damage to the bike had eliminated him from tenth place in race one. He is now eleventh in the championship standings.

Clement Desalle of the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team was even more unfortunate as the errors of other put him out of contention on the opening lap of each GP moto after a solid ninth place in qualification. A number of neighbouring riders at the gate anticipated the start in the opening GP moto and the Belgian inevitably flinched also in the tense atmosphere of the start. His front wheel was stuck in the gate for several seconds, and once free he faced a long hard chase to finish eighteenth. In race two another rider crashed into him on the opening lap; he fortunately avoided serious injury but was forced to retire from the race and is now thirteenth in the championship standings.
