Sixth and DNF for Bengtsson in Valence mud – 24MX Pressrelease

International Motocross Valence

Sunday, February 15, 2015 — The Valence International Motocross was hit hard by continuous rain today, resulting in very wet, ludicrous conditions. 24MX Honda Racing’s Filip Bengtsson registered an excellent sixth place in the opening moto. However the reigning Swedish champion was unlucky in the second moto and was forced to give up with mud blinding his vision. Due to the bad state of the track the traditional super final was cancelled.

After cancellation last year the organizing MC Valence were not exactly spoiled by weather conditions this weekend. On Saturday the hard-pack track was slippery but at least riders were able to get a good feel for the track. Bengtsson improved with each session and charged his 24MX Honda CRF450R to 11th place.

After starting in seventh “Fillibang” was on for a strong result in the first moto. In spite of the slippery surface Filip managed to climb up to a remarkable fifth. Only near the end of the 25 minutes plus two laps sprint Paulin relegated him to sixth.

Fired up for the second race, Bengtsson had a good jump from the gate. Touching with another rider and being cut off in the flooded straight zone just before the first corner unfortunately turned his start into a disaster. Even without goggles Bengtsson tried to salvage has much has he could. The 23-year old Swede started catching riders left and right but the mud hurting his eyes got the better off him.

Filip Bengtsson: “Although we came here to gain some extra race experience on hard pack it turned out a differently! Still it’s been very useful and productive. During the week and the race weekend we’ve continued working on our settings. Working with Kayaba-Technical Touch we made some more headway with the setup of the suspension this weekend as well. The riding actually went better and better. Obviously the first moto was pretty good for me. Sixth is a nice result in a strong field like this. I also felt good in the second race but I had so much mud in my eyes that I had to stop. In fact I should have pulled in right after the start, still I felt so good that I wanted to continue racing. It was a shame really because I found a good rhythm but my eyes hurt like hell!”
