The rain-affected Agueda track in Portugal, ended up producing an excellent weekend of racing, with Tim Gajser making a welcome return to the podium after Mathys Boisrame had won both of his EMX250 motos.
Calvin Vlaanderen led the Honda charge in the MX2 class, with an impressive sixth place in the second race after another good start on his CRF250RW. Bas Vaessen put his 114 Motorsports Honda inside the top 10 in the first moto, with Martin Racing’s Michele Cervellin just behind in 11th after a good battle between the two riders. Unfortunately the Vamo Racing pair of Marshal Weltin and Micha-Boy de Waal both had to pull out of a moto, but de Waal was able to score his first points of the season in the second race when he came home in 18th.
The riders now have a weekend off before making the journey to Russia where the action will take place on the Monday and Tuesday, in order to coincide with the May 1st Russian National Holiday.
