Federico Tuani comes close to scoring points in Trentino Europe

Federico Tuani of the AIT Racing team came close to score points in the fourth round of the MX2 World Championship in Arco di Trento. Tuani finished twenty-first in the first moto and rode inside the top fifteen for a long time in the second moto until his chain broke and he was forced to retire.

Tuani did not get off to a good start in the first heat, but the riding went well and he also managed to set good lap times. In the end he fell just short of scoring a point and finished twenty-first.

After a good start in the second heat, he was riding in thirteenth position in the beginning. He managed to stay in the top fifteen until the middle of the race, but then fatigue started to set in. Tuani persevered but eventually had to leave the race due to a broken chain.

In qualifying for the EMX250 class, Xavier Cazal was unable to find his rhythm. He tried several times to put a fast lap together but despite his efforts he could not get further than a twenty-first time. This meant that he was a reserve for the heats. Unfortunately he was not allowed to participate in the first heat, but this was the case in the second heat. Cazal managed to cross the finish line in twenty-sixth place in the second moto.

There was also a large turnout in the EMX125 class. Venicslav Toshev managed to set a twenty-seventh time in his group, which was not enough for qualification. Despite this disappointment, Toshev stays positive and he will again strive to achieve a good result in Markelo this Sunday.

This Sunday, several riders from the AIT Racing team will compete in the final of the Dutch Masters of Motocross in Markelo.
