Lommel, Belgium hosted the 15th round of the 2018 world motocross championship with the deep sand combined with the high temperatures providing a real challenge for all the competitors. However despite these conditions, the Honda riders in MXGP, MX2 and EMX250 classes acquitted themselves really well and now head to Switzerland with renewed confidence as the season enters its final quarter.
Mathys Boisrame kept his lead of the EMX250 championship despite a difficult weekend in the deep sand. The Assomotor rider showed good speed throughout the weekend, qualifying in third place in his group and leading a good portion of the first race before the track took its revenge. Eventually the young French rider was able to salvage six-eight results which means he still holds onto the red plate with just three rounds of the EMX250 series remaining. Freek van der Vlist returned to action after his injury at the MXGP of Germany and put in his best results of the season, something that will hopefully continue as the season heads to the Frauenfeld track in Switzerland.
