After showing such promise yesterday, Jeremy Seewer was unable to put everything together in the two motos at the MXGP of Trentino, losing the red plate that he worked so hard to gain in the four overseas rounds.

For Hunter Lawrence, a bike problem in the first moto ruined any chances he had of getting a top-10 overall as he then went on to get 11th in moto two, while EMX250 debutant Zach Pichon finished just inside the top-20 overall against some really experienced riders in what was a good learning experience for the young Frenchman.

A disappointed Seewer said: “I try to be positive but it’s hard to be too positive about my races today. We struggled so much with the start which is just so frustrating as that’s the most important thing, especially at a track like this. My confidence was like 200% after yesterday, I did well in all practices, then again in the qualifying race and also this morning in warm-up, I felt so amazing on the bike and I knew that if I was there from the start I was going to beat them because this is the kind of track that I’m good at. It’s just so frustrating not to be able to show what you can due to having a bad start and getting stuck behind riders from the beginning. I got up to ninth but I know I could have done so much better.
