MX PRESTIGE ITALIAN CHAMPIONSHIP Round4
Another excellent performance for Cas Valk and Alexis Fueri who strengthened their positions in the Championship standings.
Arco di Trento – 17/18.06.2023
The fourth seasonal appointment with the MX Italian Championship took place at the track of Arco di Trento. The excellent track conditions and the beautiful sunny day were the ingredients for the perfect performance of the Fantic Factory Mx riders. Cas Valk and Alexis Fueri showed one more time their excellent physical conditions that took them to reach a solid result.
Riders were divided into two groups for the time practice. Alexis Fueri set the third best time and Cas Valk the second one, so they had the chance to start from a solid position at the starting gate.
Fueri pulled away at the start of the first moto and was second after the first corner but managed to move to the front in first place after the second lap. Alexis held the position for most of the moto but halfway through the race was overtaken by a rival and qualified second. Despite a tough start of the race for Cas Valk, the rider rode a storming session and lap after lap increased his race pace till ending up with the fourth place.
In the second moto both Fantic riders were the authors of an excellent performance. Both of them moved at the front and thanks to a solid race pace Valk reached the first place at the first corner and no rival could get closer to the race winner. Excellent performance for Fueri as well, in fact the rider took the second place but had to let it go in the penultimate round and qualified third.
Cas Valk was second overall and Alexis Fueri third. In the Championship standings Fueri is still holding the lead and strengthened the gap over Valk, who is holding the second place.
The Fantic Factory Mx Team will get back to action at the end of July for the EMX appointment scheduled in Lommel. During the long break, the team will keep working hard and training for the important upcoming events.
Marco Maddii: “It’s been a great weekend for our riders. Both Cas and Valk did well and achieved a great result. Fueri is firmly holding the leadership in the Championship standings while Valk is second and both strengthened the gap over rivals. We still have two races to go before the end of the Championship, but these results help, especially Valk who won the second moto and Alexis who was the protagonist of two excellent races”.
