Kevin Strijbos crossed the qualifying race in fifteenth during round thirteen of the MXGP World Championship.
However, when he crossed the line, he was informed that he jumped on a waved yellow which means he’s been docked 10 spots.
As the Belgian finished fifteenth, he’s now got the twenty-third gate pick which is the last gate pick.
Strijbos will be hoping to still get a good jump for the main races tomorrow even from the last gate pick.
The Belgian posted the news on social media:
Was feeling good today on the bike. Results in quali race didnt show it maybe but speed was not to bad, just need to pick it up a bit. Was 15th and after the race they informed me i had jumped on waved yellow so they dropped me 10spots wich is resulting in 23th place, so last gate pick. Looking forward to race tomorrow. @acerbismotorsport @getdatait @suomyhelmets @denicol_lubricants @formaboots @ride100percent @shotbybavo with the sweet shots, as always! 👌🏼👍🏼
