NEWS: MXGP OF VANTAA (FIN)

LUCAS COENEN CHARGES FORWARD IN FINLAND
NESTAAN HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING TACKLE ROUND FOURTEEN OF MXGP.
The Grand Prix of Finland, round fourteen of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship, was the most recent item on the Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing team’s agenda. Vantaa, a sandy track that is smaller than most on the schedule, hosted the fixture that provided Lucas Coenen with an opportunity to add to the momentum that was gained a week ago.

Coenen, the sole representative for Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing in Finland, had to work rather hard today, as a crash in the qualification heat meant that he had the twenty-second gate pick. That was a challenge, of course, but he fared well and progressed from eleventh to fifth in moto one. ’96’ was even more impressive in the second moto; he stormed to third place with a move at the very end. Unfortunately, 5-3 scores meant that he missed out on a trophy by two measly points. Fourth was where he was classified at the end of the Grand Prix. The thirty-six points that he secured in Finland helped him climb into seventh in the championship standings.

Lucas Coenen: “I am happy with how I rebounded after the setback in the qualification heat – we made the best out of the situation. I made good progress in moto one and was so close to second at the end of moto two. Everything is going in a good direction now. We will take this momentum into the final part of the season.”

A furious triple header is sat in the rear-view mirror now. The Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing team is set to take advantage of a small break in the calendar, before travelling back to Northern Europe for the Grand Prix of Sweden on August 13.
