Marc de Reuver wins Dutch Open MX1 at Harfsen

Published October 19th, 2010

Amsterdam – Beursfoon Suzuki rider Marc de Reuver has won the final round of the Dutch Open Championship Series at Harfsen. De Reuver started the day with a second position in time practice. In the first moto he took a start around tenth position. It didn’t took him long to work himself up to third position. Soon after he started to put the pressure on the second place rider. It took him some laps to get by him and because of this the leader in the race had made a gap over himself and de Reuver. Marc stayed calm and picked up the pace in the second part of the race. He closed the gap but ran out of time to make a pass stick. He finally finished the race in second position. In the second moto he took a poor start and at the end of the first lap he came by start/finish in 13th position. During the race he worked himself up to second position but at the time he moved into second the leader was already gone. Marc gave everything he had and in the closing stages of the race and found the rear wheel of the leader. With still one lap to go Marc was searching for a place to make a pass stick. With still two corners to go Marc passed the leader in the race and won the second moto. With a 2-1 moto score he took the overall win at Harfsen.

Mike Kras was riding his first race for the Beursfoon Suzuki Team at Harfsen. Mike was motivated to do well and set the third fastest time in time practice. In the first moto he took the holeshot and was leading the race in the first lap. In the second lap he dropped back to second. Mike held on to this position for some laps but suffered arm pump and had to lower the pace. This cost him several positions and finally he crossed the finish line in seventh position. In the second moto he took a good start as well but again he suffered arm pump and had to lower the pace. He dropped back to ninth position and in the middle of the race he lost another spot to drop back to tenth position in which he finished.
