On Sunday the talented KTM Diga Junior Racing rider saw his moto cut shart after a rock got stuck in the front sprocket. While Emil didn’t add to his points tally last weekend he’s still holding down fourth in the EMX125 standings. EMX250 rider Damian Kojs failed to qualify in Latvia.
This weekend the KTM Diga Junior Racing squad will head to Teutschenthal, Germany to contest the fourth round of the EMX125 championship. Avrie Berry will line up for the third round of the WMX world championship.
Dirk Saelen team manager KTM Diga Junior Racing: “It’s hard to wrap your head around what happened to us. Hopefully we had all the bad luck for the rest of theyear in one go. This is a serious blow for Emil and the whole team. As a team we have special bond with Latvia so to come all this way and to end the weekend the way we did is particularly sour. Luckily there’s no time to ponder because Germany is up next and we’ll give out our best like always!”.
