Clement Desalle wins round 5 of Belgian Motocross Championship

Published September 8th, 2009

Belgian MX Championship – Orp-le-Grand – Round five

An overall victory in the Belgian MX Championship, his third consecutive, could be a major step towards a first ever Belgian title for Clément Desalle. The 20-year old MX sensation won one heat and took third and second spot in the two others. Clément leads the Belgian Championship standings with 337 points, De Dycker is currently second with 319 points. Coppins is third with 272 points.

Clément Desalle: “I couldn’t find my bearings in the first heat. After-wards, things got better. I was able to control the second race. Unfortunately I was held up by a lapped rider in the third heat. That was a real bummer, that definitely corrupted my result. This cost me the heat win, I’m sure I could have beaten De Dycker in the end! Nevertheless, I had a good day. I took some extra points on De Dycker, but I’m definitely not slowing down. I really want to bring home the title in Pierreux!”.
