Sam Korneliussen –
1 ROUND – DANISH CHAMPIONSHIP – RANDERS.
It was a race I have looked forward to as it was a new class, I would race in the MX1 class. During the qualifying I had a small issue with my brake on my race bike, therefore I had to change it for my practice bike. I was able to race the 7th best time, which gave a good gate pick.
In the 1 moto I ended up being stuck behind a crash and had to come al the way from behind. I made some really good laps and was pushing. Doing lap times as the leader for the last few laps I ended the moto in 7th place.
A better start at the 2 Moto had me closer to the leaders, I ended on 5th place.
Throughout this race I was Overall 6th and 6th in the championship.
1 ROUND – ADAC MX MASTERS – FÜRSTLICH DREHNA.
A very strong field of riders had showed up for the first round. On Saturday (day one) I was riding well, unfortunately I was not able to make a lap time, which got me direct into the moto on Sunday. Yet in the last chance race I charged my way up to 12, securing a reserve spot for the Sundays racing.
On day two (Sundays) I felt really good during the warm-up and raced some good lap times. Unfortunately, I did not get a space at the gate. But in heat 2 I was able to race to a 28th place which gave 31 on the day.
