The MX2 class produced some tough battles on the challenging hard-packed Imola circuit.

It was HRC’s Calvin Vlaanderen who took his CR250RW to fifth overall going 8 – 3 in race one and two respectively, another solid ride from the Dutch South-African.

Frenchman, Mathys Boisrame of Team Honda RedMoto Assomotor showed heart promise and speed in race one, but a small crash in race two hampered his changes of a higher overall finish. Mathys Boisrame went 5 – 15 to finish in 9th overall.

It wasn’t my best day today. I got a decent start in the first moto but got stuck behind a crashed rider in the second turn and that put me outside the top 20. I think I came from around 22nd to 8th which took a lot of effort on this hot day and I was quite tired after the race with all the energy I expended passing those guys. The second race went a lot better and I was around fourth, quickly passed into third and then I rode there the rest of the race. Unfortunately I crashed in the last two last laps but I was still able to finish third. So I went eight-three for fifth overall which is solid, but not what I’m after as I hope to be on the podium.

Great to see the return of the Honda 114 Motorsports Mitch Evans and Zach Pichon. Difficult conditions to return to with the heat and the challenging track - both suffering a little bit with confidence, but that’ll come back soon and we’re all looking forward to Sweden next week on a more conventional track.

Unfortunately, Brent van Doninck had to skip the second race due to injury and our best performer would have been Mathys Boisrame in race one, but it was shame that dropped out of a strong position.

So we’ll regroup and come back fighting in Sweden in a week’s time.
