Anthony Rodriguez had his first official FIM world championship race today alongside team mate Michele Cervellin in Ottobiano for round 11 of #mxgp.
The DNF in qualifying yesterday was costly for Rodriguez. Having last gate pick left him in the unfortunate position of not being able to get a good start today. Despite this, the Venezuelan took it in his stride, relaxing more into the #mxgp race format and battled on until the end finishing 16th in both races. It has been an educational weekend for Rodriguez and he now looks ahead to Portugal.
For Cervellin this was a big race today for him in front of his home crowd. Although he didn’t have such a good run in the first race as a result of a poor start, the second race he gated well and was running in fourth position with huge support from the crowd. Usually the Italian’s strength is to push harder at the end of the race but instead, within the last 10 minutes he found himself lagging in energy losing the position but still secured 11th overall.
