Livia Lancelot wins home GP

Weather forecast did not look friendly for today, but when we arrived to the track, sun was everywhere and only a few clouds. Until noon the weather stayed the same, but in afternoon everything changed. Strong wind complicated the situation and it started to rain.

Race 1

Rockstar Bud Racing Kawasaki rider Livia Lancelot wasn´t as good in qualifying as Chiara Fontanesi yesterday, but she hit back today in Race. Right in first corner was number 114 as first and anything changed until the end of Race one. Livia made a good leading, but in the middle of Race 1 she made a little mistake and lost a few secs. Finally she was very surely and fast on this track and she finished on first place.

Chiara Fontanesi, who is riding with red plate now, had not a good start. She was in big crush in the middle and it was taking her time to get to the front positions. In the sekond part of first race she was third. Between Chiara and Livia was suprisingly riding home Justine Charroux. Also Chiara need some time to pass her. Justine was in finish line on third place in first race finally.

Big and long fight of the Race one showed to spectators Natalie Kane, Britt Van Der Wekken and Anne Borchers. Every of this girl wanted to be the best, but only one could do it. At the head of this group was riding Natalie Kane and she stayed there to the finish. Britt vd Wekken closed top five of the WMX riders and Anne Borchers obtained in the end sixth place.

Marianne Veenstra and Virginie Germond was taking places each other for all the time. Virginie had not too much forces in the end as Marianne and Germond finished eight. First top ten of the best women closed Mégane Pernet, home rider on Yamaha and Italian Francesca Nocera.

The start of race two we could Compaq to first. Absolutely in the front was home Livia Lancelot. Chiara Fontanesi was again in the middle. She had good luck and she pushed very hard too in the first lap and Chiara went to the second lap just behind Livia Lancelot. Livia was too fast for every rider today and she was making safety gap. In the end of Race two was Livia faster than Chiara at finish for half a minute.

Very steady fights were for the third place. Three candidates were riding together during the whole Race two. In this group of braves was again Britt Van Der Wekken from Netherlands and Natalie Kane. Natalie was leading in front of Wekken, but breakup came in the last corner. Britt attacked Natalie and she was successful. Finally Britt vd Wekken finished third and Natalie immediately behind Britt´s rear wheel.

Marianne Veenstra on KTM was following these two and she obtained in second race nice fifth place. Then after 20 seconds were coming to finish the other riders. They were scattered throughout track. In the sixth place came home Justine Charroux on Yamaha. Between Justine and her compatitor Mégane Perned, finished tenth, were three riders. Virginie Germond at seventh place.
