Stephen Rubini showed up in Germany in a belligerent mood – tying on points with the current series leader, but without the coveted red plate. 

Rubini sat in second spot of most of Saturday’s race one, but wore down Roan Van De Moosdijk, passing him with three laps remaining to take to win. In Race 2 it only took two laps for Rubini to pass his race one challenger, although Van De Moosdijk didn’t give up without a fight – pushing the Frenchman all the way to the finish. Rubini finished the race 0.523 second ahead of the pack and takes a 10-point advantage in the championship.   

Buildbase Honda Racing’s Josh Gilbert had a very successful day going 6-11 respectively to finish in a well-earned 8th overall, equalling his 25-points score in France – today’s result lifting him up one place in the overall championship.

I’m really happy with my riding this weekend. I enjoyed riding here in Germany very much. The track is very technical - bumpy with lots of hard ruts. This is the kind of track I like.

I took great starts in all of the races which helped a lot. I now need to stay focused to win the championship. We have one race in the sand of Lommel and one race at the hard-packed track of Sweden. So it’s not done yet and we still need to work hard. I’ll try to keep the red plate until the end.

It’s been a fantastic weekend overall for Honda’s riders with podium results in all three categories - two of which were outright wins.

Stephen Rubini’s double race win has meant that he extends his lead to 10 points clear in the EMX250 Championship and retakes the series leader’s red-plate.
