Yamaha Racing 2017 - Czech Republic

An intense day of #racing on the slippery and one-lined hillside circuit of Loket, #czechrepublic, saw Monster Energy #yamaha Factory Racing's #romainfebvre and #jeremyvanhorebeek make up the top seven at the thirteenth round of the #fimmotocrossworldchampionship, while Wilvo #yamaha Official MXGP's #arnaudtonus rounded out the top-eight.

Wilvo #yamaha Official MXGP's #arnaudtonus opted for the inside gate in Race 1 and utilized every ounce of power that the all-new 2018 YZ450F delivers to emerge from turn-one in fourth. He lost a spot to yesterday's qualifying heat winner Antonio Cairoli almost immediately but wasted no time in getting inventive with his lines to keep the championship points leader - Cairoli - on his toes. Meanwhile, the Monster Energy #yamaha Factory #racing riders #romainfebvre and #jeremyvanhorebeek were locked in a battle with Jordi Tixier for fifth for a couple of laps before un-doing the Kawasaki rider who made a small mistake which both YZ450FM riders capitalized on.
