- In MX2 Thomas Kjer Olsen completed a successful GP, maintaining his position as red plate championship leader despite a challenging opening moto. Running into trouble at the start of the first MX2 race, Kjer Olsen rounded the first full lap down in 17th place – a hugely disadvantaged position due to the muddy conditions. Not rushing things, he steadily worked his way forward to hold eighth mid-race. Pushing forward a further two positions, TKO secured a deserved sixth place result.

- Pleased with his speed during the first race, the second moto saw TKO avoid first corner trouble, circulating in a strong fourth at the end of lap one. Quickly up to third, which he held until lap seven, he moved into the runner-up position on lap eight. Managing the difficult track conditions well he held on to the runner-up result and with it claimed enough points to finish second overall.

Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “That was a tough GP, especially the first moto. Considering I got caught up in the first corner, as well as needing to make a goggle change, I’m pleased that I was able to work my way back to sixth. It’s never ideal to have so much work to do in a race, but I kept my cool and worked my way forward. I’m pleased with the way I rode. The track was tough, but I kind of enjoyed it. It was tricky in places but not too difficult, having some sand in the terrain meant it wasn’t full-on mud. I felt good in the second moto. A good start helped me a lot. I moved forward a few places and ran second for most of the moto, which I’m pleased with. It’s been a positive weekend and I’m looking forward to Portugal now.”
