MX2 2022 - Matterley Basin - Round 01
MXGP of Great Britain: this weekend took the first Grand Prix of the 2022 Motocross World Championship in Matterley Basin.
Simon Langenfelder claims historic overall victory in MX2 division.
Simon Langenfelder: "I did not expect this! I came into the weekend with the goal of doing my best. I did not think about positions or anything. I felt so good in the qualifying race and then I had two really good starts today. The second moto was tough, fighting with the other riders, but I just tried to do my best and go forward. I am so happy to go home with the red plate."
Tom Vialle: “Not a bad result to start the season but I was a bit disappointed with the crash at the end of the second moto while trying for the win. If we consider that I’ve only been riding a month and a half and we are fine-tuning the new racebike then this was a good day. It was nice to be at the front and it was a bit of a surprise to have that good rhythm. A good GP for the confidence. Mantova next week and a track where we race a lot. We know it well and we will be ready.”
Mattia Guadagnini: "It was not the best weekend! I did not get a good start in either moto today. I was fighting for ninth in moto one and had a big crash, then I crashed again. I had a really bad start in the second race and went off the track in the second turn. I was feeling better though and got to eighth. This is not what I was expecting at the first round, but it is only round one and we are going home healthy."
