The Coenen brothers on EMX125 in Germany

Just a few weeks after their domination on the French Junior Championship, Lucas and Sacha Coenen got great results in Germany where the European Championship was back in action. Lucas claimed for the first time on a European podium, while Sacha won his first European moto in this class. Quentin Prugnières scores a fourteenth position in 250 class and continues his learning stage.

Lucas Coenen: “Difficult to get a good start from the twentieth gate, not the first time that I struggle to do a fast lap in the timed practice session. I came back fourth and third in the moto’s. I tried to make more passes in the last laps but that was not easy as there were many deep ruts on the track. Very happy with my first European podium!”

Sacha Coenen: “I had a good feeling with the track, but during my fastest lap in the timed practice session I crashed and finish third. I got a great start in race one and took the lead after two corners, but then I crashed after a few laps; I was shocked, made some other mistakes, it was not a good moto. I had a lot of fun in the second one, I enjoy the track, I won my first European race, just a shame the first moto.”

Quentin Prugnières: “Two bad starts today, always my fault. I did two strong races coming back twice fourteenth, just a shame that I missed a corner and lost some positions just four laps before the end in race one. At the second start we tangle with another rider…. The team work a lot to improve the bike for the starts, I need to work to improve my technique to get better results. Next week we race at home; I will give all!”
