In the EMX250 class Team Honda RedMoto Assomotor’s Stephan Rubini began the weekend with a strong showing in race one, progressing through the pack from ninth in the early stages to finish in fourth position and still holding the red plate.

A poor start in race two meant the Frenchman had his work cutout, but  crashes spoiled his chances of a podium finish. 

Buildbase Honda Racing’s Josh Gilbert finished the day in 13th overall after a tough day’s racing at the Belgian circuit.

We came into this weekend’s event missing all of our riders in the Honda 114 Motorsports team due to injury, but positively had high hopes for our EMX250 championship leader - red plate holder Stephen Rubini. Also for EMX250 was Buildbase Honda Racing’s Josh Gilbert, then RedMoto Assomotor’s MX2 riders Mathys Boisrame and Brent van Doninck.

Rubini had a solid first race battling his way from ninth on lap one to finish in fourth position and still holding the red plate. Race two didn’t go the Frenchman’s way with crashes spoiling his chances of a podium finish. Josh Gilbert pushed very hard in race one to climb his way up from 20th on lap one to finish the race in a credible 10th overall. He wasn’t able to make the same progress through the pack in race two, finishing in 16th.
