After running out of fuel at the entrance to the pits, Buildbase Honda racer Nicolas Aubin began to push…
Being a front-running French motocross star on his home turf, there were no shortage of helpers and while this outside assistance from other riders this was not to be Nico`s downfall, he did carve his way through the pits in (perhaps) a more direct route than he would have normally used!
Due to the slight deviation through the pits, the event officials took a negative view at the end of the race and decided to demote Aubin to 13th place.
Nico – “Of course this is disappointing, but I race to win, so, for me coming second was also disappointing”.
D.T – “I don`t want to dwell on ‘what if`s’. We are over it and focussing on the next event. As far as I am concerned, this was still a great effort from the whole team and a fantastic training exercise”.
