Dylan Ferrandis second in Germany

160510_1112

Just one week after his return to racing Dylan Ferrandis of the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team finished second in the German round of the FIM World MX2 Motocross Championship.

The French 21 years old had only limited opportunities to practice during the week before the race as he inevitably felt some pain in the shoulder following his comeback race in Latvia so he sensibly took it relatively easy during qualification at the Teutschenthal track near Halle to earn fifth choice of gate for the two GP races. He showed the power of the KX250F-SR to holeshot the opening moto and lead for six laps before crossing the finishing line a clear second to the current series leader. Another good start in race two saw Dylan hold second place for eleven laps and lead for two laps before easing his pace in the closing stages to ensure a safe third place finish. The combination of the two moto results gave him second overall in the GP and he has moved back to within twelve points of the series top ten despite missing four of the seven GPs to date due to his injury.

Vsevolod Brylyakov of Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki showed good speed in the practice sessions to post the eighth fastest time, but a blameless crash in the qualifying race left him with fifteenth choice of gate for the GP motos. Initially eleventh in the opening moto the Russian advanced to ninth by the finish and followed this up with a strong ride from thirteenth to eighth in race two for seventh overall in the GP. He now holds eighth place in the championship standings.

Petar Petrov of the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team suffered a thumb injury during the timed practice session on Saturday and he raced in great pain for the remainder of the weekend. Nevertheless he raced bravely from nineteenth to thirteenth in the opening GP moto and from twenty-third to eleventh in race two to maintain his championship challenge; despite dropping two places in the championship standings he is only three points from fourth and should be ready to regain lost ground next weekend in Italy.
