THOR RACE REPORT: NAGL’S CHAMPIONSHIP HOPES DASHED AT GERMAN GP

Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl was sidelined after sustaining an ankle injury during the qualification race at the German MXGP over the weekend. It was a tough blow for the crowd favourite with over 30.000 fans turning out to cheer on the championship leader.
Team-mate Todd Waters had to fly the flag in Nagl’s absence. The likeable Australian had a rollercoaster weekend when he came together Cairoli in moto 1 and had to come from last place. A better second moto would see the Aussie challenging for a podium spot before he had to settle for 8th.

Tyla Rattray was also sidelined after he experienced back pains in Saturday’s pre-qualifying practice. The KRT rider will undergo further medical examinations this week to find the exact cause of the pain. Jordi Tixier of the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team recorded an impressive third place in the opening moto, but faced a hard race from eleventh place on lap one to sixth at the chequered flag after hitting the gate at the start.

Teammate Petar Petrov chased home Tixier to finish fourth in the first moto but the Bulgarian also hit the gate at the start of race two; the shock of the impact damaged the throttle and he had to withdraw from the race but he retains his eleventh place in the championship standings. Thomas Covington had again shown good speed through training to set the twelfth fastest lap and finish eleventh in the qualification race but he was unfortunately eliminated from the GP early in race one after suffering a hand injury.

Round 11 of the 18 round series continues in Uddevalla Sweden on the 4-5 July.
