After a difficult start to his Italian GP qualification race, Team HRC’s Calvin Vlaanderen stormed through the field to fight his way back to sixth place, giving him a good chance of putting his Honda CRF250RW on the podium once again.
The famous Imola motor racing circuit is the hosting this 2019 MXGP of Italy and the man-made track produced a really intense MX2 qualification race, with close racing throughout the field. After one lap Vlaanderen has moved his way up to 14th place and the Honda rider continued to progress through the pack, picking off another eight competitors as he finished in sixth place.
This should set him up nicely for tomorrow where he knows two good starts will give him the platform he needs to challenge for the podium spots once again as he looks to back up the second overall he got at the last round in Belgium. Vlaanderen starts Sunday with a warm up session at 10:25am, which is then followed by the two main races at 12:15 and 15:10.
