Combining speed with impressive consistency, Kjer-Olsen wrapped up his weekend in Argentina with third in moto one and second in moto two. Enjoying great starts in what was a solid overall performance, the FC 250 powered rider heads back to Europe as runner-up in the MX2 World Championship’s provisional standings.

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will return to action at the second round of the 2018 FIM Motocross World Championship in Valkenswaard, The Netherlands on March 17/18.

Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It’s always great to start a new season with a podium result. I’ve done a good job with the team and myself this winter so I am feeling good at the moment. Things worked out quite well here in Argentina and I’m happy with my speed. My goal was to remain consistent throughout the day and I’m happy I made it happen. My starts were also good and this shows we’re in a good spot for the rest of the championship. I am really looking forward to the next GP in The Netherlands.”
