Jeremy Seewer, David Luongo discuss drama from the MXGP qualifying heat in France.
Drama unfolded in the MXGP qualification heat at today’s Grand Prix of France. Rain poured in the moments prior to the qualifying heats and, concerned about their safety as well as the fact that they would not be racing for points, the top riders elected to skip the race. Maxime Renaux, Ben Watson and Brian Bogers were the only factory riders who leapt onto the race track for the qualifying heat. Henry Jacobi eventually claimed pole position.
