The final pre-season international of the European off-season took place at the historic circuit of LaCapelle Marival in France over the weekend. The results didn’t stray too much from what is considered normal, except for one or two surprises, but what did the riders actually have to say following the event? Social-media content from the top-ten finishers in MX1 and MX2 can be perused below. It’s a convenient stop!

Another podium at Lacapelle to end up a decent pre-season???. (2-5) in the motos for 3rd overall and some really good racing. I‘m happy with the improvements we made in the last couple of weeks and can‘t wait for the start of the gp-season in two weeks time!?

?? ??Lacapelle Marival, France 2020?? My day started with positive vibes in Free Practice (P9) and in Time Qualify (P12) ??Race 1- Great start, and fight all race with fast guys from GP and EMX. I finished P5, which was mega!! I hold my position from start to finish. I think i surprised myself a little, and others ? ??Race 2- Even better start, i was P3, but two stupid mistakes costed some places after lap 1, and P8 it was. I dropped back one more position and ended this race in 9th! My speed was there and were able to fight with the boys all race! Overall 7th in MX2, and really happy about that ? ??Superfinal (with MX1)- The goal was just enjoy my day and learn from the best! Started off with TOP15 in start and ended P22 (8th in MX2). So great way to end my day in Lacapelle. Positive vibes only! ? At the end i’am really happy about my two International races. The level was high, and everything has been great for me! Now off to Belgium, to be as ready as possible, for EMX Valkenswaard. It was a good journey in Spain and in France and i want to thank all the people, who were involved. Thank you Harri, Lisett, Harry, Milky, Priit, Mehis and Karl for helping me out, it was great time with u ?? Also huge respect to all my sponsors and fans! #TeamJMT261 #MRALaudoitus #JanElmProject #MortenGroup #Maleko @karlikoogid #Kenomer #Keps #Marmorest #Est-TransKaubaveod #OÜHellar&Pojad #SampoEhituse #PärnuMotoclub #Trimtex @crosticmx @vulframsportswear @365jp_supplements @pevolmoto @polarmefo #TerviseParadiis #Freetime #LinnamehePuhkekeskus #FinForce #ElenoraInvest #UuedaPuhkekeskus #TervisetaastajaOÜ #RaidoKiisk #MartinArumäe #HarriKullas #HarryKullas #Duell #Akelaks #TeamJMT261Club25 #AfterSki #KultuurKapital

?alšie prípravné preteky vo Francúzsku- Lacapelle Marival mám za sebou. V prvej jazde som bol po štarte na 10 mieste ale v prvom kole som mal kontakt s iným jazdcom a spadol som, z posledného miesta to sta?ilo iba na 16 miesto ke?že sa jazdili krátke jazdy, v druhej jazde po dobrom štarte 7 miesto. V superfinále s mx1 celkovo 18 miesto- 7 miesto v mx2 . . Another pre-season race is behind me. First moto had a crash in first lap with another rider, so went from last to 16th. Second moto better start and finished 7th. Superfinal with mx1 18 overall- 7th mx2. . . ?: @jm.musoles . . @jdgunnexktmracingteam @jirijankovsky @ktm_official @wp_suspension @univok_ktm @aci_moto @bomotoroil @flyracingusa @ride100percent @alpinestars @goldfren_brakepads @brisktabor @brnocircuit_official @mikametals #MRP @multi_air_official @nuetech.nitromousse.tubliss @bomotoroil @mxgp #mxslovakia @brnocircuit_official @mikametals #czchain #gunnex @p.n.a73 #masek #sorex @gaerneofficial @yamibrace
