Getting comfortable with the race schedule and knowing he was capable of finishing inside the top 10, after a weak start, Rodriguez fought his way in the first race to tenth place finish.
The second race Rodriguez had a much better start, gating in fourth. The Venezuelan’s smooth riding style and a solid first race gave him his second top 10 finish of the day, for a well deserved eighth overall.
Michele Cervellin had a strong and consistent ride in the MXGP of Portugal today, even though his results are not a true reflection of this. In the first race the Italian crashed early in the race with another rider which frustrated him after a good start. He dusted himself down and salvaged a 15th place finish. Cervellin didn’t start so well in the second race but was able to make up more ground to take a ninth-place finish, behind his team mate for 11th overall.
MXGP returns on the 22nd July to the Czech Republic where Michele Cervellin will be joined by another stand in rider.
