Brent van Doninck scores an eighth position in the MXGP of Trentino

Brent van Doninck of JM Racing Honda has scored an eighth position at round four of the world championship MXGP in Arco di Trento, Italy. Van Doninck managed to finish in this position after a strong ride in the second moto. In the first moto he had a crash at the start and wasn’t able to make it back into the points.

Van Doninck was struggling to find his rhythm on the track in free practice and time practice. He wasn’t worried about this because this is never been his strongest point. In the qualifying heat he almost took the holeshot and was in the leading group. Van Doninck needed a few laps to get his rhythm but was riding strong and managed to finish the race in sixth position.

The first moto started with a set back for Van Doninck because he crashed in the first corner after the start and lost a lot of time. He started a charge through the field but wasn’t able to make it back into the points and finished in 23rd position.

Van Doninck was motivated to do well in the second moto. He took a good start and was riding a really strong race. He finished in eighth position and took some decent points for the championship.

With a DNF-8 in the motos, van Doninck finished in thirteenth position overall. This is his position in the World Championship as well.

Joel Rizzi was riding his first race for the team in Trentino. During the weekend it went better and better. After a 21st position in the qualifying heat he finished in nineteenth place in the first moto and crossed the finish line in fourteenth place in the second moto.

The JM Racing Honda team will now prepare themselves for the Grand Prix of Portugal, which will be held in the weekend of 29 and 30 April.
