Double Podium for Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MX1

Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MX1's Clement Desalle raced to a double victory in a French Championship round at Lacapelle-Marival and Kevin Strijbos finished on the second step of the podium at the Belgian Championship race in Mons at the weekend.

Desalle opted for get the best possible preparation for this coming weekend's Italian GP at the second round of the French 'Elite MotoCross' Championship. He grabbed the holeshot on his RM-Z450 in the first race and kept the lead until the end in front of Sebastien Pourcel and Milko Potisek. The Belgian had a more difficult start in the Superfinal - which combined both MX1 and MX2 classes - but quickly worked his way back up to the top spot again and recorded a perfect 1-1 scorecard.

Strijbos struggled to find a good suspension balance, but managed to finish 3rd behind Ken De Dycker (KTM) and Evgeny Bobryshev (Honda) in the opening French Championship at Mons. With a better set-up found in the second heat, Strijbos found himself in second position behind a strong De Dycker with Bobryshev in third.

Clement Desalle:

"The race went well; it was a bit cold in the morning but it got really good in the afternoon, which were basically the best conditions for this track. The track was perfectly prepared and the soil is very similar to the that from the GP in Arco Di Trento next weekend. I managed to work on a few points and had a good training overall."

Kevin Strijbos:

"After the suspension troubles last weekend we decided to try out some more settings to find the best setup for the next GP. In the first heat we still didn't have the best setup, got to third but couldn't push forward to be able to fight with Bobryshev and De Dycker. We found a better set-up for the second heat which I'm pretty happy about. De Dycker created quite a gap after putting in two super-fast laps in the first couple of rounds, but after that I managed to keep a similar speed, and after Ken got caught in traffic, I even got back close to him. Overall I'm pretty happy with the work we did over the weekend and some improvements we made on the bike."
