Moto win for Dylan Ferrandis in Italy


Dylan Ferrandis swept to a superb moto victory for the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team at the GP of Trentino, eighth round of the FIM World MX2 Motocross Championship.

It was only the third race back in action after injury for the 21 year old Frenchman and he showed devastating speed to take a clearcut victory in qualification and then take another holeshot aboard his KX250F-SR to lead the opening GP moto from start to finish as he inflicted the first defeat of the year on the series leader. The two riders battled wheel to wheel through the closing laps but Dylan maintained his composure to win by just over a second as the duo outdistanced the remainder of the field by more than thirty seconds. A wheelie coming out of the gate cost Dylan any chance of another holeshot, but he showed great determination to battle from outside the top ten to finish third, a placing which assured him of second overall in the GP. Despite missing half of the races so far through injury Dylan has already moved into the series top ten and can expect to make further advances in the forthcoming races.

Vsevolod Brylyakov of Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki maintained his record of scoring a top ten finish in every GP this year as he raced to seventh overall from consistent 9-8 moto finishes. Unfortunately the enthusiastic Russian had not earnt a top ten start gate pick during qualification, but he persevered through both GP motos to advance from outside the top ten on lap one for his final results. He now holds eighth place in the series standings.


Petar Petrov of the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team bravely decided to contest the GP despite the pain from a recent thumb injury and his persistence and determination paid off as he maintained his sixth place in the series standings with two tough rides from nineteenth to fourteenth in the opening race and from fourteenth to ninth in race two.
