EUROPE. Calvin Vlaanderen had a bumpy start to the MXGP of Latvia following a first turn-incident in today’s (13 May 2018) qualifying race for the MX2 class; the crash forced the Team HRC rider to a strenuous recovery, as Calvin did his utmost to salvage the best possible gate pick for tomorrow’s opening moto at Kegums.

After two strong finishes to free and timed practice – he was third in both sessions – Vlaanderen did not enjoy a competitive start to the race and, as the pack reached turn one, he found himself stuck on the inside line with a few other opponents and ended up dropping the bike in the sand.

Vlaanderen managed to jump back aboard his Honda CRF250RW machine and, by the end of lap six, he was already up to 17th place. Calvin’s charge, however, did not stop there: as the MX2 field approached the penultimate lap, he made his way back into the top-ten and eventually finished the moto in tenth position.

The two, seventh-round MX2 races will get underway tomorrow at 13:15 and 16:10 local time (GMT +3), after the morning’s warm-up scheduled at 10:25.
