Clement Desalle wins GP of Qatar

Clement Desalle started off the year with an opening round win a the first ever MXGP held in Qatar. He now holds the red plate entering round 2.

"It is a good feeling to start the season with the red plate but it doesn't mean so much because the year is very long. I have always said that when I have fun on my bike, then the results go well and that's really important. I didn't make many mistakes today and my starts were much better than we saw in the pre-season races; that was a good point. I had some difficult moments last season and also coming back from some injuries, but I feel good on the bike now and wasn't pushing too hard. I want to say a big thanks to my team because they made a big job in the last few weeks. It was tough to start the championship a month earlier than usual." - Clement Desalle
