Pauls Jonass sixth in MXGP of Great Britain

The second round of the World Championship MXGP was held in Matterley Basin in Great Britain. In the MXGP division, Pauls Jonass put together a super-consistent day at Matterley Basin. In the opening moto the Latvian enjoyed a great start, which put him in contention for a strong result. Battling hard throughout the race he placed sixth at the flag.

With rain falling as the gate dropped for race two, Pauls again started inside the top-10 before working his way forwards. Undeterred by the slick conditions, the Latvian moved into sixth on lap nine but then found the leading riders just out of reach. Ending the race with another sixth-place finish gave Jonass sixth overall on the day and he maintains eighth position in the championship standings.

Brian Bogers returned to MXGP action at round two of the FIM Motocross World Championship. Fully healed after his lingering arm injury, the Dutchman scored solid points in both motos with his 13-17 result placing him 16th overall.

Pauls Jonass: “It’s always fun to race at Matterley and even with some rain it was fun again this year. After Russia it’s nice to back racing, we had some mixed results there but overall, I was happy with my speed. It was the same today – I felt good, and my speed was there. Starts are always important and in the first moto I got a good one, in the second race I got boxed in off the gate, which wasn’t so good. I was able to get up the inside of turn one and get back some places pretty quickly and from there just kept pushing. The track was getting slippery in places, but I had a good moto. Two sixth place results are good, now I’m looking forward to Italy next weekend.”


Brian Bogers: “It’s great to be back in the MXGP paddock and with my Standing Construct team. It was frustrating to miss round one but I’m really happy to be healthy and racing again. It was a pretty solid day. I just need a few more gate drops to get my race rhythm back but overall today was a great starting point. My bike is great, I just need to work a little on my starts and then we can push for better results.”

Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing now looks forward to lining up next weekend at the MXGP of Italy on July 4, round three of the FIM Motocross World Championship.
