New forces coming thanks to the new collaboration between Yamaha Wilvo team and talented Arnaud Tonus (Alpha Torched), back to MXGP after two seasons in the United States. The Swiss obtains a satisfactory seventh place in his debut race, in race 2 he is involved in a compromising race contact.
In MX2, the synergy between the Italian team TM Racing and Samuele Bernardini (Mr Jump Jackpot) continues, he achieves a deserved fifth place in Race1. The rider falls in race2, without consequences, during an overtaking.
In the suggestive night setting in Losail International Circuit (Qatar), also JM RacingHusqvarna lines up the whole MX2 team with Suomy Alpha. It is Kjer Olsen, the new arrival, to collect two fourth places in both races.
