Give it to him Italian internationals Of Motocross There are very strong signals ahead of the season, which starts on March 10th. After Riola Sardo it’s time to Mantua which he crowned on Sunday 11 February Tim Gajser in the category MXGP. The Slovenian wanted revenge: a year ago, again at the Italian Championships, it was fractured his right femur, thus compromising the season. Also Liam Everts he wants to take his revenge and he demonstrated it in MX2. A gauntlet thrown and accepted by the world champion Andrea Adamo. Good too Ferruccio Zanchinew Honda rider.


In Sardinia, a week ago, Gajser dominated the scene by scoring a brace. In Mantua, Tim did not repeat himself, but he still scored more points than anyone else. The Slovenian from Honda, a five-time world champion in his career, triumphed in the first heat, ahead of his teammate Ruben Fernandez. Third position for Romain Febvre, who won the Kawasaki derby with Jeremy Seewer. In the top 5 a third HRC, that of Alberto Forato. In race 2, however, the roles were reversed: the Kawasaki leading and the Honda chasing. Victory for Febvre, while the star performer Gajser was satisfied with second place after a furious comeback from the rear. Third was Akashi’s other bike, ridden by Seewer, while Fernandez preceded Alvin Ostlund. The sum of the placings between Riola Sardo and Mantua allowed the Slovenian to conquer the Italian Internationals. A loud and clear message, addressed to the reigning world champion Jorge Prado who at the last moment withdrew from the Lombardy race.


The cadet category also provided more than one idea. Absent in Sardinia, Liam Everts excelled on the Mantua track, providing a great performance. In race 1 the Belgian from KTM, son of an artist, clearly dominated. Behind him were Zanchi, who did well aboard the Honda, and Oriol Olivier. In the second heat, however, Liam had to settle for second place due to a technical problem. The victory went to Adamo, who thus redeemed the fourth place of the first outing. A back and forth between the reigning champion and one of his most anticipated challengers. Third the surprising Valerio Lata (GasGas). Everts won the Mantua stage thanks to 47 points, but the Internazionali in MX2 bear the signature of Simon Langenfelder, the most constant considering the four Italian races.
