Clement Desalle Consolidates MXGP Series Third
Belgian Clement Desalle faces a tough road ahead with Jeffery Herlings and Tony Cairoli at the top of their game.
Clement Desalle narrowly missed the podium in the British round of the FIM World MXGP Motocross Championship but consolidated his third place in the series.

The Belgian maintained a lonely fourth place throughout the opening moto at Matterley Basin in Hampshire but was looking safe in third place in race two until an incident as the front wheel slid out cost him two places on the sixth lap of fourteen.

In a solid recovery he maintained good lap times to the close to regain fourth place but just run out of time to take back the third place which would have given him an overall podium. However he has consolidated further his third place in the series standings with a twenty-three point advantage over fourth.

A pair of 4th places saw Desalle tie on points with Romain Febvre but placed 4th on count back.
"I‰Ûªm frustrated to miss another podium!" Desalle said. "In the first race I finished fourth; that was my place as I didn‰Ûªt found any solution in some sections of the track to go faster and keep the pace with the guys in front of me.

"My second start was better; I was second for a time until Herlings passed me. It‰Ûªs always tough to keep him behind but I stayed third and kept focusing on my lines. But then I crashed when my front wheel slid out in a corner and I lost two positions. I didn‰Ûªt want to give up and I came back behind Febvre and Gajser; I passed Gajser but I ran out of time to try to pass Febvre and get the podium result.‰Û
