Thor Race Report

THOR RACE REPORT: MXGP of LEON – MEXICO.

A sunny and warm Leon in Mexico welcomed the 4th round of the MXGP championship. Thor’s Clement Desalle was running in podium positions before mistakes in both motos would relegate the Belgian to a 8-6 score for 7th overall on theday. He still occupies 3rd in the series standings.
 
Max Nagl had a challenging weekend and the German is still yet to find his form. A 7-8 score placed Nagl 8th overall as he could not capitalize on his usual lightening starts. Team-mate Max Anstie had a strong qualification race where he placed 3rd giving himself a great gate pic. A first moto 9th was a commendable result and while pushing for a top 10 placing in moto 2, Anstie crashed and had to settle for 13th.

KRT rider, Jordi Tixier had to sit out the Mexican GP to repair a torn groin tendon sustained at the GP of Patagonia.

With the string of overseas GP’s now complete the series returns to Europe with round 5 to be held in Trentino – Italy on the 15/16 April.
