Ramon scores Swedish Podium

Published July 6th, 2010

The 10th round of the FIM MX World championship has seen another positive podium result for Team Rockstar Teka Suzuki’s Steve Ramon. ‘The Bomb’ used his super smooth riding technique to notch up a 4-3 score in front of an enthusiastic Scandinavian crowd.

With sunny skies and warm conditions for Saturday’s qualification Race, Ramon qualified 3rd giving him a good inside gate pick for the Sunday program. A change of weather, with morning rain, altered the track conditions making the Uddevalla circuit rough and slick. Ramon got a decent start in moto 1 but made a mistake on the first lap, losing two positions as he rounded the in 5th. He quickly settled into his rhythm and went after David Philippaerts who was closing in on Clement Desalle. With the race coming to an end Ramon put in a last minute charge to catch the Italian but ran out of time and crossed the finish line in 4th.

Another mistake on the opening lap left Ramon with some work to do. Choosing some good racing lines he put in really quick lap times and closed down Russian Evgeny Bobryshev and fellow Suzuki team-mate Desalle. The three riders came together in a scrap for second place with the Russian getting the short end of the stick. Ramon tried his best to make a pass stick on Desalle but had to settle for third as he hounded Desalle to the checkered flag.

“I enjoy this track and have been on the podium every time over the last four years. It was really exciting racing today and Clement and I had a good battle in the second moto. My arm is still not 100% but is improving all the time so I will be looking forward to my home GP in three weeks time.” commented Ramon.
