Albie Wilkie Extends Championship Lead With Overall Victory At Loket

Posted:

Albie Wilkie took his fourth race win and his third consecutive overall Grand Prix victory in the Honda 150 European Championship in the Czech Republic with a dominant ride.

He took the early lead with a great start on his CRF150R and then never looked back, delivering a succession of fastest laps to steam away from the pack in a class of his own. Combined with his second place finish in yesterday‰Ûªs race, he takes the overall victory in the Honda 150 European Championship at the MXGP of the Czech Republic.

In a reversal of Saturday‰Ûªs race, this time it was championship rival Jere Haavisto who had the comeback to make after he crashed on the first corner and found himself in 14th. Fighting back through the pack, he minimised the points-damage of Wilkie‰Ûªs win by finishing an impressive second, just ahead of Albin Larsen who took his fourth top-three of the season to finish third overall.

‰ÛÏThe first race didn‰Ûªt go to plan as I had a bad start." Wilkie refelected. "I managed to put myself through to second but couldn‰Ûªt overtake Jere which was a bit of a downer, but today turned the complete opposite way.

"We managed to get out front and get ahead which was part of the plan for this weekend. I think it helped jumping the big step-down after the finish line ‰ÛÒ it was a bit of a tricky one but I just opened the throttle and wished for the best!

"It‰Ûªs really tight between Jere and I, so I just have to keep confident in Lommel. Now I‰Ûªve got the red plate I just have to stay strong and hopefully win the series.‰Û
