Febvre wins MXGP qualifier in Ottobiano!
It was a surprising result in MXGP in Ottobiano with Romain Febvre passing early race leader Jeremy Seewer to take his first qualifying win since 2015!
Tony Cairoli suffered a terrible start and then went down early as pole man Tim Gajser hit the deck around turn one leaving a rare win up for grabs for the rest of the field.
Cairoli and Gajser were at one point battling for 16th but Cairoli charged on reaching eighth at the flag – passing both Van Horebeek and Searle in the last turn! Cairoli wasn’t happy so expect a much more focused defending world champ tomorrow!
