Supported By Super B Febvre And Tonkov On Podium At Dutch Open In Mill

Wilvo Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing has scored two podium positions in the second round of the Dutch Open Championship Series in Mill. Aleksandr Tonkov and Romain Febvre had a nice battle for second position in both motos. In the first and the second moto it was Romain who crossed the finish line in second position in front of his team mate Aleksandr.

The track in Mill was challenging. The normal sand track was changed with several wave sections in it. Both riders took their time in practice to get used to the track. When time practice started they did several fast laps and finally it was Romain who set the second fastest time in front of Aleksandr.

In the first moto both riders took a good start. Aleksandr came out of the first lap in second position with Romain in third position not far behind him. Both riders tried to follow leader Glenn Coldenhoff but in the second part of the race they had to let him go. After a mistake of Romain he charged back to the rear wheel of Aleksandr. In the final lap he was looking for a place to make a pass stick. With a nice pass he took over second place and managed to held on to this position till the chequered flag waved. Aleksandr crossed the finish line in third position.

In the second moto it was again Aleksandr who took a really good start. Again he came out of the first lap in second position and Romain came by start/finish in sixth position. During the race it was Romain who was fighting back to third position. He found the rear wheel of Aleksandr and both riders had a nice battle for second position again. In the closing stages of the race Romain managed to pass Aleksandr and finished the race in second position in front of Aleksandr.

Romain finished in second position overall and Aleksandr ended the day in third position. After two rounds Romain sits in second position in the championship and Aleksandr is in third position. Next weekend round three of the World MX2 Series will be held in Beto Carrero, Brazil.
