Breakthrough performance for Hunter Lawrence
Australian MX2 rider Hunter Lawrence has risen to the tough conditions of Valkenswaard for a breakthrough performance at the MXGP of Europe notching up his best result since joining the Suzuki World MX2 team.

Lawrence was pleased how the motos went after his performance on Saturday and is happy to have finally showed what he is capable of, with a career best fifth in moto two.

‰ÛÏIt was a good day," Lawrence enthused. "First moto I got a decent start, around 10-15 but then I made a mistake as I was going over a bump, letting off the gas and allowing the bike to stall. It took me a little time to start the bike again by which time I‰Ûªd dropped down outside the top 20. I then put on a charge which got me up to 10th position, so I was pretty happy with how I was riding and made me look forward to race two.

‰ÛÏThen in the second moto I got another good start on board my RM-Z250, which was running great all day. I moved up from around 10th and just put my head down, rode my own race, got my lines sorted and was really trying to play with the track and link some sections together.

"I ended up passing some good riders to finish fifth and I was really happy with how I was riding and how the Suzuki World MX2 team progressed throughout the weekend. From Saturday to Sunday it was a nice improvement and I hope to keep this level up for the upcoming GPs. This sixth overall was my best ever finish, combined with my best moto result so I have a lot of positives to takeaway and I‰Ûªm excited to head to Latvia for the next round.‰Û
