160517_108

Jordi Tixier of the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team narrowly missed the top ten on his return from injury at the GP of Trentino, eighth round of the FIM World MXGP Motocross Championship.

The Frenchman, a former MX2 world champion, was making his debut in the premier MXGP world championship class after complications with a wrist injury sustained in August last year had delayed his return to action. He quickly settled into a rhythm to post thirteenth place in timed training and repeat that position in the qualifying race. He battled just outside the top ten in the opening GP moto to again finish thirteenth and advanced to eleventh place in race two to complete a highly satisfactory comeback to racing.

Tommy Searle of Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki again showed great speed during timed practice to post second fastest time, but the Englishman continues to experience difficulties at the race starts. After qualifying twelfth he was handicapped by other riders falling in his path at the start of the opening GP moto but raced hard to advance from twenty-seventh on the opening lap to twelfth at the finish. He was eliminated from race two after a crash.
