Thor Race Report

Thor Race report: Desalle maintains 3rd in championship standings after solid Matterly Basin MXGP.

Welcomed sunny skies and summer temperatures adorned the Matterly Basin circuit in Wincester, UK for round 9 of the FIM MXGP series. Thor’s Clement Desalle narrowly missed the overall while tying on points for third however a front wheel slip out cost the KRT rider dearly as he occupied 3rd place in the second moto. Desalle remounted and fought back to 4th spot matching his 4th place in moto 1 for 4th overall.   Team-mate Julien Lieber rebounded from an horrific crash in timed practice on Saturday. The rookie showed his resilience with 8th in the first moto yet another crash left him scoreless in moto 2.
Russian rocket, Evegeny Bobryshev, once again posted 2 consistent top 10 results, showing good speed on the fast Matterly Basin circuit. His 10-9 score for 7th overall was a testament to the hard work put in over the last few weeks.
With no time to rest on their laurels, riders and teams head to St Jean d’Angely on 9-10 June as the championship hits the halfway mark.
