160530_109

Nicolas Dercourt of Bud Racing Monster Energy Kawasaki finished seventh in the fifth round of the FIM European EMX250 Motocross Championship at Talavera de la Reina in Spain.

The French youngster had earnt a good gate pick with eighth place in qualification, but he had to battle his way through from twenty-second to eighth in the first race after colliding with two other riders at the start. After moving forward impressively to fourth in the second moto he was forced to discard his goggles a couple of laps from the end of the race, the inevitable difficulties with vision costing him two places. He is now tenth in the series standings.

Teammate Darian Sanayei found it difficult to settle into as good rhythm during qualification and the resultant unfavourable choice of start gate made it good starts difficult for the two points-scoring races. Making the best of the situation the young American powered through from eleventh to seventh before a fall cost him ten positions and he could only manage thirteenth at the finish. A better start in race two saw him quickly advance from sixth to second but another crash cost three places and he finished the race fourth. He retains third place in the series standings.

Hunter Lawrence of Monster Energy CLS Junior Team Green had qualified well in fourth position but crashed early in the first points-scoring race after starting second and the race went from bad to worse as he was hit by two other riders in separate incidents. As a result he needed medical treatment on his knee but bravely returned to action next day for race two, only to encounter yet more misfortune. Initially outside the top ten after a delay when two other riders crashed in his path he chased through to finish fifth, frustratingly just a couple of seconds short of second place. Despite the misfortune the Australian teenager retains second place in the standings at the halfway stage of the series.
