Mantova MXoN results: B-final – Finland through as Meara impresses!

There was no luck of the Irish in this years B-final but Jason Meara rode fantastic to bring home a superb second behind MXGP rider Miro Sihvonen.

Stuart Edmonds was holding a nice position at the start of the moto but had two crashes, in the end he was catching the riders ahead of him but couldn’t make anymore moves so came home in ninth but rode very well after two crashes. Both Meara and Edmonds can hold their heads high as they give everything they could and in what is only Meara’s second time at the event it should help him for the future. 

Jake Sheridan racing the event for the first time went down at the first corner but battled through to get back into the top twenty. 

Finland can thank their MX2 rider, Emil Weckman finishing the race in eighth after Jere Haavisto had problems and that is why it’s important to have three strong riders. Finland and Poland actually tied on 9 points each but as Haavisto beat Barczewski, it sees them progress.
