Hunter Lawrence continues to impress abroad finishing sixth overall in the FIM European EMX250 division.

Held alongside the MXGP of Latvia, the junior riders were treated to two motos and the Aussie proved consistent once again for the Monster Energy CLS Junior Team Green.
Lawrence overcame an early crash in both motos to regather himself for a well deserved sixth overall. In the opening moto Hunter finished just three seconds behind the leader in fourth place before dropping to seventh in the second.
“It was a good and a bad weekend.” Lawrence reflected. “The riding was good, but the results didn’t really reflect how I rode.
“We’ve made some good progress since Valkenswaard. In the first moto I crashed by myself on the first lap and came back from twenty second to fourth; that was not bad even if I was not so happy with this crash. There was a crash at the start of the second moto; I don’t really know what happened but I was in it and another wheel was stuck between my rear wheel and the frame so it took a lot of time to restart in last position.
“I again came back through the pack to finish seventh; that is never easy as everyone is trying to make aggressive passes and you need to find your way. I’m now second in the standings; we’ll continue to work hard and hopefully we’ll be even stronger in Germany next weekend.”
