MXGP of Lommel number 3: This weekend took fifteenth Grand Prix of the 2020 Motocross World Championship at Lommel in Belgium.
Tony Cairoli remains 2nd in the MXGP championship standings and is 74 points behind Tim Gajser with 150 left to win in the 2020 campaign. Jorge Prado was unable to compete after testing positive for COVID-19 and was in self-isolation.
Tony Cairoli: “A bad day today and the two crashes in the second moto didn’t help. We didn’t have the speed to go with the guys in front in the first moto. So, not such a satisfying week in Lommel. We need to re-group and go to Italy with the least amount of pressure, enjoy the riding and finish this season on the best way. I hope Jorge gets well soon.”
Tom Vialle grows MX2 championship lead to 74 points with three rounds remaining.
Tom Vialle: “It was a difficult day. I was feeling good with the track in the morning but in the first moto I was struggling with it at one point, especially in the waves section. I was losing time there. The second moto was the same. I couldn’t find any flow today but for the championship it was pretty good. There are only three races to go now and I like Arco. I don’t know what conditions we’ll find there but it’s hard-pack and a surface that I enjoy it a lot.”
Next Race at the Pietramurata circuit in Arco di Trento in northern Italy on November 1st, 4th and 8th.
