    Despite claiming no points from the opening MXGP race, up until the moment when he got an old track side banner caught in his rear wheel, Pauls Jonass was showing impressive speed and sitting second behind MXGP series leader Tim Gajser. Making the first of two strong starts, Jonass moved into the runner-up position by the end of the opening lap before settling into the second-place spot. Spending eight consistent laps behind Gajser, after getting a little sideways over some braking bumps Jonass went off track, which ultimately ended his race.

    ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING’S MXGP ROOKIE SECURES HARD-FOUGHT RUNNER-UP RESULT AT RAIN SOAKED MANTOVA

    Battling against challenging, muddy and changeable track conditions in both motos at the fifth stop of the FIM Motocross World Championship, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pauls Jonass has claimed his first MXGP class podium with a well-deserved second place overall result.

    Working hard during the weeks leading up to the GP of Lombardia, Pauls Jonass claimed two strong starts and made light work of the heavily rutted Mantova circuit. Keeping mistakes to a minimum during the opening race, Jonass held fourth during the opening seven laps before moving into third and then, five laps later, into the runner-up spot. Holding position for the final three laps of the moto he secured his best result of the year to date.

    Again fourth early in the race, Jonass quickly moved into third in the second moto before going on to complete 14 of the 15 laps just a handful of bike lengths behind the second placed rider. Almost stepping off his FC 450 during the closing stages of the race while trying to make a pass for second, Jonass decided to settle for third. Crossing the finish line in third, he secured a career first MXGP podium with second overall.

    The GP of Lombardia was a mixed one for Jonass’ team-mate Arminas Jasikonis. A double-digit points scorer at each of the four previous GPs, Jasikonis delivered an impressive and controlled opening moto performance to claim a strong third, close behind second-placed Jonass. Frustratingly, things didn’t go as planned in the second moto. Colliding with another rider halfway down the start straight, the tall FC 450 rider had to shut-off momentarily, which saw him immediately drop to the back of the pack heading into the first corner. Falling later in the opening lap, Jasikonis would eventually place 15th for eighth overall.

    The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team now head to round six of the FIM Motocross World Championship, the MXGP of Portugal, on May 19.

  • JASIKONIS FOURTH OVERALL IN THE MXGP CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS

    Arminas Jasikonis moved into an impressive fourth overall in the MXGP championship standings following another consistent GP performance. Although not a huge fan of the slippery Trentino circuit, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider ended the event with ninth and fifth place results.

    With overtaking notoriously difficult around the slippery circuit, Jasikonis rode well in the opening moto but could move no higher than ninth, spending the entire second half of the moto just inside the top 10. Race two proved to be better for the FC 450 rider, who finished fifth to claim a well-deserved sixth overall.

    An 11th place result in today’s opening MXGP moto was the highlight of round four of the MXGP World Championship for Pauls Jonass, who finished a strong seventh in his qualifying race. Starting inside the top eight in the first moto, a mistake while trying to make a pass saw him drop back to 11th. In the second moto a poor start and a fall pushed the former MX2 World Champion back to an eventual 19th place finish.

    The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team now enjoy a five-week break from racing, returning to competition at round five of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship in Italy, the MXGP of Lombardia on May 12.

  • JASIKONIS FIFTH OVERALL IN THE NETHERLANDS

    Arminas Jasikonis improved on the sixth-place overall result he claimed at the first two rounds of the series, finishing fifth overall at the Dutch GP. Collecting two well-deserved fourth place moto results, the FC 450 powered rider collected the same number of points as the third and fourth-placed competitors but had to settle for fifth overall due to his fourth-place result in the final moto.

    Former MX2 World Champion Pauls Jonass continued to make progress following his return to competitive action. At Valkenswaard the young Latvian finished with 11th/14th place results for 11th overall at the GP. Making a strong debut at the FIM Europe EMX125 European Motocross Championship, TC 125 powered Kay de Wolf earned 5-2 results for fourth overall at the GP of The Netherlands.

    Recovering from a collarbone fracture that he sustained during round two of the MX2 World Championship in Great Britain, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Mikkel Haarup was unable to contest the GP of The Netherlands.

    The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will return to action at the fourth round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship in Italy on April 6/7.
