Romain Febvre dominates the MXGP Qualifying Race in Trentino – Round 4


Kawasaki Racing Team MXGP’s Romain Febvre sits on pole for tomorrow’s fourth round of the FIM World MXGP Motocross Championship at Pietramurata in the Trentino region of northern Italy after a dominant performance in Qualifying.

The Frenchman was in no mood for hanging around after posting second-fastest time in practice and powered ahead out of the gate at the start of the twenty-minute-plus-two lap Qualifying race to pull a clear holeshot and immediately move relentlessly ever further ahead of his chasers. He already led by seven seconds on lap four, increasing his advantage to thirteen seconds at half-distance with a series of record laps to coast home an overwhelming victor.

 “The times in practice this morning were really close so we knew we needed the holeshot. We worked a lot on my starts this week and it paid off as we took a double-holeshot with me in front and Jeremy right behind me. I could quickly make a gap and control the race. We took some good points back in the championship and now we have to do it again in both GP motos tomorrow.”

Febvre now retakes the third place in the standings 1 points over Jeffrey Herlings. And he is 41 points behind Jorge Prado.
