Rodriguez proved what he was capable of achieving today on his CRF250RW in the MX2 qualifier of the MXGP of Portugal.
Settling into the MXPG format and having spent more time on the bike, Rodriguez had a solid qualifying race today in Agueda. Getting a good gate, he was able to make up ground quickly into the top 10. He had an intense battle with Watson and eventually crossed the line in eighth place.
Cervellin couldn’t find his rhythm today on the golden terrain. He struggled off the start and then ended up mid pack with little room to make up any ground, coming in 13th.
The first MX2 race starts tomorrow at 13h15
