5th round held in France, where will be MX of Nations this year.
Saint Jean d’Angely track is not Harri’s favorite track but he did best he could finishing 9th overall.
Saturday track was hard and dry but in the evening it rained hard.
- Qualifying heat wasn’t good for me. I got really bad start and came to 14th position. Track was also quite hard and dry, but hard raining was just good for me, so I hoped a lot of rain, laughing Harri said. Sunday in the morning track was mud but in the races it was already better.
- First race I got good start, but lost too many positions in the first lap. I found myself 13th in the beginning and could finish the race 10th position. I saw one guy in front of me, but I was too late to push for the pass, Harri said after first race.
-Second race I got bad start, but this time I made good first lap, and made some passes. Then we had battle with Joel Roelants but he did small mistake and I had breathing space.
I was riding my pace and finished the race in 9th position which I was quite satisfied.
- The weekend wasn’t easy for me, but I did my best to finish 9th overall and kept 8th position in the World Championship standings.
Next race will be in a week time in Portugal, Agueda.
