Today was Tanel Leok's 500th GP race of his professional racing career. His first race was at the MXGP of the Netherlands back in 2001. What a beast!

The track is very treacherous by the way. It shows it's run later in the year opposing to previous seasons, it's much dryer and harder underneath as usual. The waves keep making casualties year after year.

About the Belgians today: * Great response from Geerts in the second race, but he needs to stop crashing asap. 2nd moto at Matterley, 2nd moto at Valkenswaard and today again, twice. I'm afraid his luck will run out eventually. I believe he could've ... more »

Actually that's one of his favourite tracks. He got his first overall podium of his career there in 2018, and stood on the podium last season as well. He just messed up. I think he was trying to attack Vialle too soon and was riding a little over his ... more »

Not bad. He was in 10th position about 3 corners before the finishline, but he collided with Gwerder so both crashed. I think it's a good preparation for next season. A lot of riders made mistakes by the way, Kay de Wolf lost 4-5 positions about 3 times, ... more »

Excellent ride from Benistant, who not only wins the first race but also takes over the championship lead from Bøgh Damm, who DNF-ed. I guess his injury isn't healed completely yet. 1. Thibault Benistant Yamaha 2. Isak Gifting KTM 3. Tim Edberg Yamaha ... more »
