THE GREATER THE OBSTACLE, THE MORE THE GLORY

March 8, 2015

The new season seemed to start quietly during the first MXGP in Qatar.

After all the rumors that anticipated the first racing weekend of the year some expectations were disregarded.

But as motocross lovers know, offroad is the only plot where unexpected is always expected.

Coming from the first day of the MXGP Thailand weekend, during the qualifying races the announced Villopoto vs Cairoli battle officially started.

Although Antonio Cairoli was gripping hard with his Hexa Glovesdesigned with a special one layer high durability synthetic leather palm, Ryan Villopoto was hitting the first laps winning this Gran Prix.

For Tommy Searle a bad crush make him leave the race after the first moto while Ken De Dycker continued getting a 27th place overall and Rui Goncalves a 16th place. 

Assisting breathless at this enormous challenge we will never forget this race where once again the eight time world champion was fighting hard to the end to obtain a great 3rd position behind Clement Desalle and giving us all a new important lesson about obstacles, tenacity and glory.
