2020 FIM Motocross World Championship - RND #10 - GP Of Città Di Mantova (MN)

GP of the City of Mantua: Fredriksen made the “bis” and went again on the podium of the EMX250 class, and now he is 4th in the General Classification. A crash at the beginning of Race 2 vanished the podium for Renaux, who finished 4th overall. Jacobi just touched the “top 10” in the MXGP.

“Tazio Nuvolari” circuit, in Mantua, is still a good place for Team SM Action Yamaha, as race by race keeps getting more successes in the World Championship classes and in the European Championship too.

The GP of the City of Mantua, which was the 10th round of the FIM Motocross World Championship, took place in the middle of the week just after two days of rest, and the riders of the EMX250 Championship participated too for the 6th round of the season.

After that good result gained in the previous GP, the Norwegian Hakon Fredriksen #427 attacked the difficult sand of the track at the first chance already, as he was the fastest one in his Free Practice group. In the following Timed Practice, Hakon repeated the performance and he conquered the 2nd gate for the starting of the race.

In both races Fredriksen was determined to continue the positive moment and after both starts he positioned in the “top 5”. In Race 1 he started in 4th place but after a few laps he gained one position and he kept it until the checkered flag. In Race 2 he was 2nd after the start and without making any mistakes he kept that position until the finish line. In the overall he ended in 2nd place, so he gained the second podium of his career and also the 2nd one in a row. He jumped from the 8th to the 4th place in the General Classification, so he entered the “Top 5”. With four rounds left and those performances, the “top 3” is for sure possible for him.

In the MX2, Maxime Renaux #959’s Sunday morning started with the 3rd fastest lap time in Free Practice and the 8th in Timed Practice. In Race 1 the French’s start was almost perfect, as his Yamaha #959 jumped out of turn 1 in 3rd place. In a few laps time Maxime managed to move up to the 2nd place and due to the crashes of the riders ahead of him he took the lead during lap 3. Renaux rode his bike with authority until the last lap, when he was overtaken, so he finished in 2nd place. In Race 2 the French did not have good luck, as he was involved in a group crash after the starting straight. Maxime restarted in second-to-last place but he then made a furious recovery that moved him to the 7th final position. Unluckily, that placement was not enough for him to jump onto the podium so he just kissed it once again, as he had the same amount of points as the rider in 3rd place but he finished 4th. In the General Classification, though, he reinforced his 3rd place.

In the MXGP, the German Henry Jacobi #29 was not fast in Free Practice (23rd place) but he strongly improved in Timed Practice and he finished 16th. In Race 1 the German had a good start and he was 11th after lap 1. His performance through the race was smooth and concrete, and even though he had a contact with another rider towards the end of the race, Henry conquered a satisfying 13th place. In Race 2 Henry repeated himself: good start and regular conduction of the race. He finished 12th and he then finished 11th in the overall. He is still in 15th place in the General Classification of the Championship.
The GP of Europe, 11th round of the FIM Motocross World Championship, will take place in the next 3rd and 4th of October to complete the three-in-a-row rounds that were scheduled at the “Tazio Nuvolari” circuit of Mantua. In this occasion, there will be once again a round of the EMX250 Championship.

Maxime Renaux #959: “It was a good weekend after all, even though I’m disappointed because I missed the podium. After the 2nd place in Race 1, I then had some bad luck in Race 2, as I crashed at the start of the race. However, my race pace was good and I will make up for it from the GP of Europe already next Sunday.
