Round 3 of the MXGP World Championship took place this weekend at the historic Maggiora circuit.
In qualifying, Wilson Todd managed to post an impressive 11th, while Hammal struggled and managed to grab 28th, stating it as “intense”. Moving into the first race, both riders missed out on a good start and had to see what they could achieve from the back of the pack. A stone through the radiator of #20 would cause issues as he lost coolant and power but was still able to salvage a 15th place finish. A small crash set Hammal back, and he would eventually finish in 28th in race one.
In race two, a first corner crash took Todd as a victim and would leave him having to make his way from dead last. On a difficult to pass track, he eventually made it to 18th to finish 18th overall. Unfortunately, an electrical issue, perhaps from a stone, hampered Hammal and he was forced to retire from the race.
The team now has a weekend off before heading to Oss next weekend.
