HRC’s Calvin Vlaanderen’s second place overall was fantastic result for the young Dutch-South African.

Mixed fortunes struck our other MX2 campaigners as the brutal sand of Lommel took its toll on Team Honda RedMoto Assomotor’s Brent van Doninck and Mathys Boisrame, whilst  Honda 114 Motorsports replacement rider Koen Gouwenberg also struggled to come to terms with the infamous Lommel track.

Calvin Vlaanderen 10

It was a pretty good day today, although I was definitely disappointed after my first moto when I finished seventh. I had a small crash which dropped me down a few spots and that was frustrating. In the second moto I actually had some fun on the track, even with the tough conditions. My plan is to always have fun and the first moto I really didn’t enjoy it, but in race two things went a lot better. I flowed around the track with a good rhythm and even though I finished second, I didn’t expect to be on the podium. Only when they wrote on my pitboard near the end did I realise and obviously I’m really happy to finish second and have my best overall of the season.

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.

In the MX2 class Mathys Boisrame’s first race saw a crash spoil his changes of progressing from his 9th position in the early stages. And race two was a similar outcome giving the Frenchman 15th overall. His teammate Brent van Doninck suffered an unfortunate crash on the second lap of timed practice and was taken to hospital for scans, but couldn’t compete today in Lommel due to the FIM ruling regarding a knock out.

Good news and congratulations go to HRC’s MX2 rider Calvin Vlaanderen who battled hard throughout the day and his efforts paid off with a second place on the podium.
