Everything in Fonta MX Racing team went well and Chiara could continue on her winning stroke. She made double in Senkvice.
Fonta MX Racing Team was celebrating in Senkvice, Slovakia again. This team rider Chiara Fontanesi is unstoppable in this season and any rider could passed her. Her weak point are starts, but this weekend everything changed. Her weak point transformed to strongest and holeshot went to her account. From start until the end she was leading and enlarging gap to second rider.
HM Plant KTM Team rider Natalie Kane had some smaller problems with her bike in qualifying race. His disatvantage was making place on start on Sunday. In addition she started fast and in first tabletop she flew on fifth place. She is one of the riders, who can endanger Chiara and she started to do that. Chiara was leading far in front, so it was pretty hard to catch her. Natalie finally decided to keep second place.
Italian rider Francesca Nocera wasn´t so good in qualification in comparision with the race. After start she make a good position and she was riding behind Kane´s back. Kane was faster than Nocera and Francesca knew that. Third place looked good for her and she defended third.
Nice ride in qualification had German rider Anne Borchers. She obtained second place,but race is completely different. For a while she was riding second, but Francesca and Kane were faster, so Anne moved on fourth place. This position she held until the end of a race one.
In good condition and well riding is in this races Suisse rider Virginie Germond. Virginie was trying to lose another rider behind her for a few laps. Finally she did it and fifth place went to her. Team Dragon moto rider Virginie lost ten secs to fourth Anne Borchers.
Justine Charroux was rider, who was attacking position of Virginie. In final she crossed finish only four seconds behind her on sixth position. Dutch rider Britt van der Wekken obtained last year third position here in Senkvice. Aim for this year was repeat it at least. Britt had bad start and it meaned for her bad result on this fast track. Britt finished on seventh place.
Britt´s compatriot Marianne Veenstra was riding on seventh position. Marianne had slower ending laps and she felt to eighth place. Selina Schittenhelm from Germany and Kimberley Braam from Netherlands were closing first top ten riders. In qualifications tenth rider Jana Antosova obtained in race only eleventh.
Who else than Chiara Fontanesi could dominate in WMX FIM World Motocross Championship rounds. Chiara had again great start and her fast ride, nice jumps over the waves and tabletops brought to her first place. Chiara was making also small show to spectators and they pushed her to the front.
Chiara Fontanesi: “I am happy with this weekend again. Finally I took the holeshot and after that went everything easier. I won both races, so again 50 points. When I will come home, I will again train hard to be better and to win more races.”
HM Plant KTM UK woman rider Natalie Kane again wanted to invade Chiara´s position. Natalie hurt herself in one of the corners and due to pain she took slower rythm. But not so slow to obtain back positions. Also in this condition she was able to made a second place.
As in the first heat, second race went on the same way. Francesca Nocera started nice on fourth position. Rider in front of her was Anne Borchers and motivated Francesca wanted to make second podium place this year. Francesca disturbed Anne all the time and finally she took Anne over and she obtained third place.
Anne Borchers revealed that she will be satisfied with top five. Her ride looked better than for top five. She was fast, well prepared on this type of track and in the end Anne with her Suzuki grabbed fourth place. In finish she did not hide her happiness.
It looks like a copy of first race, but Suisse rider Virginie Germond had again little problems with French rider Justine Charroux. Virginie is a skilled rider and her sure ride secured fifth place for her. This weekend was successful for Virginie too and she is ready to repeat it in next race.
Justine Charroux was finished on the same place and same situation as in the first race. She finished behind Virginie Germond, but for this time only 3 secs. It means, she carried home sixth place. Britt van der Wekken is next rider, who repeat first race result. Dutch Honda rider Britt did seventh position from thirty riders.
