Team Honda RedMoto Assomotor’s Stephen Rubini began the weekend 11 points adrift of the EMX250 European Championship lead in the EMX250 class.

He had a challenging start to the weekend with a small crash in race one and mounting a mammoth fightback from eighth on lap 11 to third place at the finish.

Another average start in race two meant that Rubini had it all to do as he threw his CRF250R up to second place at the finish, giving him the overall win – only six points adrift of the championship title.

It as the last round of the European Championship this weekend and I was really motivated o try to win the championship. I had a pretty good free an timed practice - then in the first race I had a pretty good Strat and tried to push towards the front, but then made a stupid mistake and had a small crash. I got back on the bike I gave everything I had. I was a really crazy race with the scary moments and I eventually finished in third place.

In race two on Sunday I also used very hard. I had a good start and made my way through to second place which meant that I won the GP overall. Of course I’m disappointed to not win the title for myself and Honda, but happy to win the last round and I will come back stronger for sure.

In the EMX250 class it was great to see Team Honda RedMoto Assomotor’s Stephen Rubini win the overall - a win we know that both he and the bike are always capable of. Unfortunately, his crash at the previous round in Lommel cost him the overall EMX250 Championship by just six points.
