EMX250 Podium for Kay De Wolf In Spain

Kay de Wolf of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing scored a podium finish during the EMX250 motocross European Championship round at Arroyomolino in Spain. De Wolf rode strongly, and with second – and fifth in the heats respectively, he secured the overall podium with third for the day. This is De Wolf’s second overall podium finish in the series this season.

The newly-built track at Arroyomolino offered many technical challenges with big jumps. Kay started his day on a positive note by securing the third gate during qualifying. A good start in the opening race launched him away with the leaders. He quickly moved into second position, and managed to hold onto the spot until the fall of the flag.

Another good start in the second race vaulted Kay into third position. This time he had the attentions of a group of fast riders, and he quickly lost third position. He held his own in fourth for a long while until Thibault Benistant passed him near the very end, dropping him to fifth.

De Wolf was third overall for the day. This has cemented his third position in the championship standings further and he is 21 points ahead of the fourth placed rider. The series continues next weekend at Lommel in Belgium.
