Dylan Ferrandis of the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team finished fifth in the tenth round of the FIM World MX2 Motocross Championship at St Jean D’Angely in western France.
For his last appearance in a French Grand Prix as he will race next season in the US, Dylan was expecting some great results even if St Jean is not one of his favourites track. On Saturday he dominate both practice sessions, and charged to second place in the qualification race but suffered misfortune at the hectic start of both GP motos. Last in the first corner, he was twice forced to race through from the back of the pack to finish sixth and seventh. These two scores gave him fifth overall in the GP and the Frenchman is now seventh in the series point standings.
Dylan Ferrandis: “I’m disappointed with the results, I had two very bad starts as I was last in the first corner. I couldn’t get good starts on this ground, and then I had to fight for the entire thirty-five minutes to come back in the top eight. I had no fun riding on this track, and everything seems to go wrong at the moment as I’m still waiting for my knee braces and equipment as the airplane company lost my luggage from Spain. Now we have two weeks to recover before Matterley; let’s hope that they will do a good track preparation.”
