Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Thomas Kjer Olsen was on a mission this weekend.

Olsen started the GP by winning the Qualifying Race and Race 1 in an impressive display. Race 2 was more of a challenge as Olsen started in 8th place and with Pauls Jonass out front he knew he needed 2nd to claim the overall a feat he accomplished.

‰ÛÏI worked my way up through the pack and I‰Ûªm pretty happy with my riding, I just stayed consistent all moto. It was so tough out there so I was trying to make no mistakes and ride smooth. I‰Ûªm so happy with how things turned out. Last year I won here in the European Championship, it is pretty crazy that I win the GP this year.‰Û
