Not the best weekend for the 4 FXR riders that were in Denmark for the weekend but #444 Kenneth Kaalund Andersen was able to take the holeshot in both races.

EMX Germany | Braceras battles hard in Germany
After the strong performance in Kegums, David Braceras Martinez was heading into Germany feeling confident on his CreyMert KTM. However, unfortunately, the young Spaniard couldn’t pick up any points in Teutschenthal. The victory went to the Italian Mattia Guadagnini.
Braceras took a crash in qualifying but despite the crash he was still able to qualify directly for the main races which was positive. In the first moto, the 15-year-old took a bad start as he was buried down the pecking order. It’s the kind of track you don’t want to get a bad start because it’s very one lined and extremely hard to pass. The best Braceras could do was twenty-eighth which meant he couldn’t add to his points tally.
Thankfully Braceras took a much better start in the second moto as he was inside the points in eighteenth on the second lap. Things went wrong on the third lap though as he suffered from another crash at a track where it was easy to do so. He lost around twenty positions but fought hard to come back to twenty-seventh.
After a busy schedule with many races, the CreyMert KTM team have a free weekend. Kevin Horgmo will be back in action in the EMX250 Championship at Matterley Basin on the 2nd and 3rd June. The EMX125 series resumes a week later in France.
Our Swedish Husqvarna Bloms MX rider Leopold Ambjørnsen, did really good during his qualifiers easing into 8th fastest but ended up with a huge get-off during the first heat. Check out the video footage here
