Petar Petrov fourth in the world

160510_1109

Petar Petrov of the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team moved to fourth place in the FIM World MX2 Motocross Championship standings after narrowly missing the podium at Kegums in Latvia.

After qualifying seventh the Bulgarian’s hopes of success were dealt a blow on race day as he was involved in a crash at the first corner of the opening moto and had to defiantly battle his way through the pack, passing rival after rival to eventually finish sixth. A more fortunate start in race two saw Petar react quickly to ride inside a heap of crashed riders and nearly secure the holeshot; fifth on the opening lap, he advanced to fourth place on lap five and finished in that position to secure fourth overall in the GP and move up to the same position in the series standings.

Teammate Dylan Ferrandis returned to race action after a seven week injury absence to impress with his resilience. Despite his lack of race practice the Frenchman swept to fifth place in qualification and added a sensible ride to fifth in the opening GP moto. An unfortunate incident at the start of race two left him trailing the pack in the early laps but a determined drive through the pack once again earnt him a top six moto finish and secured fifth overall in the GP. Despite missing four of the first six GPs through injury Dylan holds fifteenth in the standings a third of the way through the series.

Vsevolod Brylyakov of Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki once again showed the speed which had taken him onto the podium two weeks previously in Mexico, but the Russian’s results sheet was spoilt by a series of crashes after he had posted fourth fastest time in the timed practice. Several collisions pushed him back to nineteenth in qualification and a heavy crash in the opening GP moto cost him a lap and put him out of the points-scoring positions after an early advance to twelfth. Race two followed a similar pattern, but he fought back to secure a tenth placed finish. He is now eighth in the championship standings.
