This weekend was exciting and diﬃcult in Estonia but also on abroad. If in Estonia it was windy, cool and rainy then Indonesia was the air also very humid but the temperature was 20 celsius degrees higher 🔥. The circumstances made motocross tracks technical on both sides and our riders had to put in a lot of eﬀort here and there. This time debuted in Indonesia in MXGP class Andero Lusbo and of course Tanel Leok was there and in Estonia Henry Vesilind was back on track but also Kadri Ehamäe and Jörgen-Matthias Talviku raced.
❌ Andero Lusbo: “MXGP of Indonesia is behind me. It was pretty diﬃcult weekend. The heat and humidity was rough what sucked the energy supplies out of me. The ﬁrst race went pretty okey and I managed to keep the tempo more or less until the end and ﬁnished in 14th place. The second race was more diﬃcult, my strength was fading and I tried to push hard until the end again and ﬁnished 13th position. Positions 14 and 13 gave me overall 14th place.
Next weekend is already MXGP of Asia in Semarang. I will try harder and hopefully it will be easier to race in this heat then. Thank you for all supporters!”
❌ Jörgen-Matthias Talviku: ”The Estonian round on my home track just didn’t go as smoothly as I expected. The rain only did good and the track was awesome. Qualifying race was muddy and I was 3rd which was good. The ﬁrst start I got away as 2nd and I wanted to take the lead but then I made a mistake and crashed. I improved my position a couple of places and ﬁnished 5th but the moto overall was horrible and it wasn’t anything like my usual riding style. Between two motos were also sprints where I was 4th. In the second moto I got a holeshot and I hoped that I can show some speed and how I am actually capable to ride but already in the ﬁrst lap I crashed really hard. I made a mistake in the wave section after the table top when a fellow racer jumped in front of me and I couldn’t react. We touched and I ﬂew oﬀ the bike on high speed. My ﬁngers got twisted and I hurt a little my back and neck but it could’ve been worse. My bike took a proper hit and was so damaged that it wasn’t possible to ride until the end. I will try to forget this horrible day and keep training. Now I need to heal myself a little so that I could push hard next weekend in the Junior Championship. Big thanks to my fans, supporters and team!”
❌ Tanel Leok: “First Indonesian GP is done and dusted. My positions were 13th and 9th. It was a very tough GP. The ﬁrst race was so diﬃcult to make myself push hard and make a proper eﬀort. I felt one moment that I don’t have the speed nor energy and I tried to save myself for the second moto. It felt a smart decision afterwards. I was glad that I managed to push myself forward the second Moto and didn’t just give up although it was very diﬃcult and it was even uncomfortable to ride when you hold yourself back and still get tired. Thank you all sponsors and fans who keep supporting and cheering to us!”
❌ Henry Vesilind: “After a half year long break I am back on the bike and done some practice so we decided to take part of the Estonian round. During qualifying race the track was pretty masculine and I rode carefully. First start didn’t come out as planned, I crashed. With couple of laps I even managed to rise a few places but then I crashed again and my bike got stuck in the mud and I was dealing with this for 2 minutes and then I rode safely until the ﬁnish. In the second start someone crashed in the front what I didn’t see had happened and crashed into him and my hand got stuck unfortunately between the other guys wheel and I hurt the same injured shoulder so I came oﬀ and DNF. I will give couple days rest to the shoulder and then I can start chasing some speed again.”
❌ Kadri Ehamäe: “I raced in MX hobby class together with men in Pärnu. In the morning the track was slippery and muddy. In the qualifying race I was 4th even to my own surprise. In the ﬁrst moto I managed to miss the start and in the second lap I crashed in a deep rut. I had to make passes and I ﬁnally ﬁnished 6th. I was not happy with my riding because the speed wasn’t what I am capable and I know I could have done better but I haven’t rode such deep ruts much, I felt stiﬀ and was afraid to take jumps and corners easy.
The second start I was somewhere in the middle, the track was bumpy and I didn’t realize to set suspension accordingly and therefore the rear fork was kicking and that cut down in conﬁdence. The whole race I was 6th and in the last lap I managed to take the 5th place. It was positive from the second moto to still ﬁnd some strength to attack in the end. Overall 5th place among 12 men which was pretty good result I think! I know what are my weaknesses and what I need to keep working on still. Thank you for all the helpers, sponsors and the team!”
