Third Podium in a Row for Clement Desalle in Turkey

Posted:

Clement Desalle sits comfortably in third place in the MXGP standings with a 28 point lead over Honda's Tim Gasjer.
Clement Desalle raced onto the podium of the FIM World MXGP Motocross Championship for the third consecutive weekend with third place at Afyon in Turkey.

The Belgian quickly settled into fourth place in the opening GP moto and, adapting ever more to the extremely fast track, he maintained his lap times to retain his position to the finish.

In race two the Kawasaki rider took the holeshot award, the team's second success in three weeks, and, although quickly demoted by the championship leader, he again found a good rhythm to set fast consistent lap times and secure the overall podium with third place in the moto.

The 29-year-old goes to the final two GPs with a twenty-eight point margin over his closest rival Tim Gajser for third place in the final championship standings.
Desalle raced onto the podium for the third round in a row.
"I‰Ûªm really happy with my third podium in a row," Desalle enthused. "I didn‰Ûªt feel so good yesterday because this new track was so fast and we were on the limit but the track developed really well through the weekend; today it was really technical and I felt better every time I rode. The team has been working really hard on small details to get us ever closer to the win but it is not easy against Herlings. It was a good feeling for the team to get another holeshot award today after my teammate also got one in Switzerland."

Desalle will be back in action for the Grand Prix of the Netherlands taking place at Assen for the fourth year in a row.
In race two the Desalle took the holeshot award.
