Thoughts from the Russian MX2 podium – Vialle, Fernandez and Boisrame

Tom Vialle: “I had a really good day and I’m really happy with both races. This morning I couldn’t do any better than 9th position in time practice but in the races I had two good starts, leading both races, it was a good weekend and I’m really happy because I’ve been working really hard in the winter. We have been working on the bike also with KTM, so everything was good and I’m really looking forward to going to England and ride again there”.

“My goal is to win at the end of the championship, so the goal was to be consistent like I was last year and it was working pretty good today”.

Ruben Fernandez: “I’m really happy, it’s my first ever podium. I had two good races, I had good starts. In the first one I tried to battle with Tom Vialle from the first laps but I started to make a few mistakes and had to take my own pace. I tried to make no more mistakes. The second race, I managed to get into first and had a good battle with Tom, later I made two mistakes in the same corner, then I struggled with my rhythm, got passed and then on the last lap I had to go for the pass on Rene for the second place on the podium, so I took my last chance. I’m really happy about the race”.

“I can say I’m really happy. We [the team] have been putting in some work, overall the team is good, I’m really happy with the new bike”. 

Mathys Boisrame: “I’m really happy for sure to be on the podium. In the first race I made a mistake, but my riding was good. In the second race my start was not so good, the first few laps I was maybe 7th. I managed to come back, my rhythm was good and I finished second, it was a good race and a good weekend for me to start like that”

“Matterley is a good track, a lot of ruts and also a lot of bumps, I like a track like that, but we need to work a lot and keep going, but we see, there is a new race and a new day so we will work a lot and we will see. I’d like to thank my team and everyone who supports me”.
