TKO nr. 4 i Bulgarien

Men en flot 3. plads i første heat og en flot opkørsel til 5. pladsen – var det en god weekend for Thomas Kjer Olsen.

Thomas fortæller fra teamet:

 

Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It was a tough GP and I did my best for a good overall result. In the opening moto I got off to a good start and quickly placed myself inside the top-five. The pace on the first two laps was really high. I got into fourth behind Thomas [Covington] and was able to make the move into third. It was a good race and a great result. In the second moto Thomas crashed in front of me right after the start and there was no way to avoid him. Restarting the race, I knew I had to work hard and this is what I did. I made a lot of passes and managed to place myself in fifth position at the line. I’m quite happy with these results. My speed was good and I really tried my best after the fall in moto two.”
