Strijbos docked 10 spots during qualifying!
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!
