MX2 2022 - Mantova - Round 02
MXGP of Lombardia: this weekend took the second Grand Prix of the 2022 Motocross World Championship in Mantua (ITA).
Andrea Adamo impresses at round two of 2022 with the first podium in MX2. Tom Vialle places 2nd in the first MX2 moto in Italy but crashes in moto two and is out of the points.
Simon Langenfelder: "I did not have the best gate pick, especially for this track, but I had a good first corner in the first moto and was around tenth. I made some passes and got up to seventh, which I was happy with. My start in the second moto was a little bit worse. I made passes and then crashed around the halfway mark, but I was already feeling unbelievably good. I caught the riders ahead of me and finished second. It was an unbelievable feeling – I was so happy! I think that we made the best out of a bad weekend.”
Mattia Guadagnini: "It was not the best weekend for me. I just could not make it work today. I did not have the best start in the first moto, but I was around fifth and then I crashed. I made some passes and finished eleventh. My start was really bad in the second moto – I was not riding too bad in that one though. I finished ninth. I know that I am a lot better than this. I am sure that we will be at the front soon."
Tom Vialle: “A strange weekend. It started well with P2 on Saturday so I had a good place in the gate. The first moto was OK. 2nd again was good but I wasn’t that happy with my riding. We changed the bike a bit for the second moto and I felt better. I was leading but the jump take-off had been watered and it was still early in the race. It was a huge crash! I was very lucky. I’m thankful for that. We have Argentina next and a bit of time now to train and to continue to improve.”
Jeremy Sydow: “Unfortunately, the results don't quite reflect my weekend. Nevertheless, I felt more comfortable on the bike from lap to lap, which my lap times also prove. We'll take the positives from the weekend and now focus on the next race in Argentina”.
