Thor Race Report

Thor Race report: Desalle secures third in MXGP championship standings after Imola podium.

The 20th and final round of the FIM MXGP world championship has delivered a bronze medal for Thor’s Clement Desalle at the famous Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Italy.

Desalle secured his 9th podium of the season with a consistent 3-3 score and rode a flawless two moto’s on the purpose built track that adorned the famous road racing and formula1 circuit.

Julien Lieber was also impressive as he completed his rookie season with a career best of 4th overall. The friendly Belgian enjoyed great starts and a steady ride to go 5-4 on the day.   A mid season injury kept Lieber from breaking into the top ten of the standings however his 11th overall in the championship is a portent of things to come.

Evgeny Bobryshev rounded off his 2018 MXGP campaign with a solid 10th overall, posting two consistent 10th place finishes. The Russian held his own in his first season with the newly formed BOS racing team and with his never say die attitude ended the season on a high.

The Motocross of Nations will see Clement Desalle represent Team Belgium in the USA on October 6-7 at picturesque Red Bud track located in Buchanan, Michigan.
