GP of Italy. The ninth stage 2015

Aleksandr Tonkov has taken his first ever Grand Prix moto win in round nine of the World MX2 Series in Maggiora, Italy. In the muddy circumstances he was leading the first moto from start to finish and won the race with an advantage of nine seconds over Jordi Tixier. In the second moto he made a mistake in the second lap and dropped all the way back to twelfth position. After this set back it took him some time to come back in his rhythm but he did everything he could to come back as far as possible. Aleksandr charged back to eight place and with these results he just missed the overall podium and had to be satisfied with fourth position.

Aleksandr had a nice rhythm going in the free practice session on Saturday. On the legendary track he managed to set the fastest time and this gave him a good feeling in the rest of the day. In the qualifying heat he took a decent start and came out of the first lap in seventh place. He was riding in this position for a few laps but during the race he won two positions and finished the race in fifth position. 

The track circumstances were completely different on Sunday morning. Due to a lot of rain the track was really muddy and slippery. Because the track was just to bad to ride on, Aleksandr and the team decided to skip the warm up to safe the bike for the races.

On his new Husqvarna Factory FC250 he took the holeshot in the first moto. In the first few laps he got a lot of pressure from Jordi Tixier and Tim Gajser but when he found the right rhythm he started to pull away and made a gap over himself and Tixier. Aleksandr kept focused till the end of the race and managed to win the moto with an advantage of around ten seconds over Jordi Tixier. For Aleksandr this is his first ever GP moto victory in his career.

In the second moto he took a good start as well and he came out of the first lap in fifth position. Unfortunately he made a mistake in the second corner and dropped all the way back to twelfth position. It took him a few laps to find his rhythm back but he kept fighting and managed to work himself back up to eight place. With these results he just missed the overall podium and had to be satisfied with fourth position. 

After nine rounds he sits in fourth position in the championship and is only three points behind the second place rider. Next weekend the series continues in Teutschenthal, Germany.
