At Ottobiano, Team SM Action Yamaha gained the first podium of the year with Maxime Renaux. The conditions were tough, due to the rain and the snow that dropped in the past days.
Since Timed Practice already, we could see that the French felt comfortable with the deep ruts of the track. He signed the fastest lap with the time of 1:54.489 and he started the race in the first three places. For five laps he was second, but a lapped rider got into the way and Vlaanderen overtook him with only two laps to go. When there is only one round till the end of the Championship, Maxime is 5th in the General Standing with only 13 points of gap from the podium.
Positive race for Michele Cervellin too. In MX2 race, Michele was 5th after the first lap, just behind Ben Watson. Both battled for the whole race, and during the last lap the English passed him at the downhill corner just before the finish line. At Mantua, where the last round of the Championship will take place, the “Fiamme Oro” rider will try to keep the third place of the podium, and maybe he will also try to catch up those 25 points of gap from Mikkel Haarup, who is currently in second place.
Hard races for Michael Mantovani and Andrea Adamo. Mantovani started well in MX2 race, but at the third lap he made a mistake and he moved to the back of the group. He finished 30th and he did not qualify for the “Supercampione”. Unlike the weekend at Riola Sardo, Andrea Adamo this time did not feel good with the track surface. He was 25th after the first lap, he managed to move up to the 20th but during the last lap Larranaga overtook him and excluded him from the “Supercampione” race.
