Thor Race Report

Thor race report:  Guadagnini wins in Italy and claims RED plate in MX2.

Thor’s MX2 rookie, Mattia Guadagnini has claimed his first MX2 overall victory at the 3rd round of the FIM MX World championship in Maggiora, Italy.  The young Italian went 1-2 with a faultless victory in moto 2 to claim the GP win in front of home crowd as he now leads the MX2 world championship in his rookie year in the class.

Antonio Cairoli was one of 3 riders to tie on points for the GP victory however the second moto result was deciding meaning Cairoli would have to accept 3rd step on the podium.  Downpours turned the hillside Maggiora circuit into a muddy technical affair however Cairoli stayed consistent and scored 2 x third place finishes.  

Fellow Factory KTM Redbull team-mate , Jorge Prado posted a well deserved 2nd place in moto 2 behind Romain Febvre.  The Spaniard hounded Febvre to the flag to take the runner up spot.  In moto 2 with the track becoming unpredictable Prado started in 5th and kept his position with two laps to go when Pauls Jonass snuck past to claim 5th spot.  In the opening moto Jonass had a strong ride and spent his last 5 laps fending off a charging Herlings in 6thplace.  Herlings would eventually get past the Latvian on the final lap. Jonass would put in a solid second moto ride as he would shadow Cairoli to come home in 4th spot claiming 6thoverall for the day.

With a week’s break riders and teams will have a changed of terrain as they head to the sandy circuit of Oss in the Netherlands on 18 July.
