Treacherous conditions get the better of Hunter Lawrence in Indonesia

Posted:

Suzuki World's Hunter Lawrence didn't have much luck at the second round of the FIM MX2 Motocross World Championship at Pangkal Pinang, Indonesia, with the Australian Rookie coming out worse ware for two treacherously difficult races.

Lawrence had a good start to proceedings when he followed eventual winner and team-mate Jeremy Seewer in the opening lap after he came from the middle of the gate to sweep into second place round the first corner. Unfortunately, the young Australian‰Ûªs day wouldn‰Ûªt go exactly to plan in terms of results, but at certain times of the race, he was easily the fastest rider out on the track.
Like many others Hunter Lawrence fell foul of the treacherously difficult conditions
Lawrence wasn‰Ûªt able to quite make it happen with his finishes but still had a positive outlook on his performance: ‰ÛÏSpeed is good, but I‰Ûªm not happy with the results although really, anything could have happened in those conditions," Lawrence said.

"The first moto I got a great start, fourth around the first turn but then I had a couple of crashes and the second one I got the bike stuck in a big bog-hole and I couldn‰Ûªt get the bike out. They needed like four-or-five guys to get my bike out so I ended up outside the top 20.

"The second moto I again got a good start, right behind Jeremy, so a good day for the Suzukis off the start line. I then again had a couple of crashes before they red-flagged the race, so not great. Just happy to be coming home in one piece as it was like a minefield out there.‰Û
