Another double victory in the German 65cc Championship
The second round of the German Youth Motocross Championship 65cc took place at MC Genthin on the sand track in Ferchland. We travelled to this beautiful track as championship leaders. My goal was clearly to extend my lead. I was already able to put in some fast laps in free practice and set the best time in the strong field of riders.
It was a similar picture in qualifying, as I was already able to set a fast lap on lap two and take the lead. I was able to beat my own time again towards the end of the session and thus secure pole position again, just like at the opening event in Göggingen. Before the first race, the track was perfectly prepared by MC Genthin, much to the delight of all the kids in the 65cc class! I got out of the gate very well at the start. I entered the first corner in parallel with Jamiro Peters and Peters initially took the lead.
On the first lap, I was able to overtake in the wave section and immediately pull away from the field by a few metres. I increased my lead from lap to lap and eventually won the first race by 31 seconds ahead of Jamiro Peters and the Polish guest rider Tymon Tomtala.
The start of the second race didn’t go perfectly, I reacted well but made a slight swerve and lost a few metres. Nevertheless, I was able to line up in fourth place after the first corner. I was able to push my Husqvarna up to third place on the first lap and overtake Tymon Tomtala from Poland at the start of lap two.
As the second lap progressed, I chased down the leader Jamiro Peters, who was able to take the holeshot again. I didn’t hesitate for long and attacked on the second lap and overtook him.
With very strong lap times on the already rutted track, I was able to extend my lead very quickly and confidently won the second race as well. Over a minute later, Tymon Tomtala from Poland crossed the finish line in second place, followed by John Kranhold in third.
We were therefore able to extend our lead in the German Youth Motocross Championship 65cc with another win on the day. Tymon Tomtala and John Kranhold completed the podium in Genthin. Tizian Bolliger from Switzerland finished fourth ahead of Jamiro Peters, who rounded off the top five in Genthin.
We will continue our journey next weekend at the third round of the DM65 in Reutlingen.
