After a two weeks break, we get the 11th round of the FIM Motocross World Championship at Ottobiano Italy, on the renewed ” Ottobiano International circuit”. In the qualifying race on Saturday Ken ended 21th, in the races on sunday he rode his 24MX Honda to a 17th and 19th place, he ended 20th in the GP. Cairoli won the Italian GP in front of Herlings and Anstie.

Under a very bright sun and tempatures higher as 37 degrees, Keeno came out the start of the first race in 20th position. Our 24MX Honda rider had to found the right rythme in the Italian sand, so he climbed to a 17th position after a few laps. The sandy circuit was very dangerous due all the bumps, so Keeno made a little mistake and lost a few places and fell back in 20th position. Despite the extremely heat Keeno came back to a great 17th position. Cairoli won the race in front of Herlings and Paulin.

In the second race he had a good start, after few laps Ken was in 14th position. In the third lap he crashed and fell back to last position. Keeno could ride his 24MX Honda back to a 15th place, but in the last laps he had some problems with his goggles and ended the race in 19th. Cairoli won before Herlings and Anstie.

Ken de Dycker: ” This was not the weekend i hoped had, i struggled all the weekend and my riding was bad. After the Russian GP I bruised my ribs on training so i wasn’t able to train or test with the 24MX Honda. We struggled with the suspension settings so my riding was bad. I know i can much better than this on a sandtrack. The week for the GP of Portugal we gonna use for testing and training.”
