Gilbert 9th as Forato claims the win! MXGP of Great Britain – EMX250 Race 1 – Results
Just 4 British riders qualified through to the main EMX250 races of the MXGP of Great Britain, and as expected it was Buildbase Honda’s Josh Gilbert who was the lead UK rider in Moto 1, picking himself up from a fall to finish in a great 9th position.
Taylor Hammal from our feature Pro Motocross team Rob Hooper Racing put in a heroic ride coming from well outside the top 30 to finish a fantastic 18th. Michael Ellis came close to scoring EMX points coming 21st.
Alexander Brown rounded out the Brits with a 24th.
The Italian Alberto Forato dominated the race ahead of the hard-charging Spaniard Ruben Ferandez, and Frenchman Stephen Rubini.
