Romain Febvre (Monster Energy Kawasaki) is assured of fourth in the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship but the former MXGP world champ – fresh from a top-three finish last time out – is aiming to sign off with another podium at Sunday’s MXGP of Garda Trentino.
“I was able to recover pretty well physically since Sunday,” said the Frenchman, “but not completely and I still have some pain in my back! It was not an easy day but I rode a good first moto – I had a bad start as my rear wheel slipped on the metal plate but I had good speed to come back from last to fifth.
“My second start was much better. I was third, passed to second and had a nice battle with Tim [Gajser]. I just couldn’t find the spot to pass him but I am on the box and that’s good, even if I would prefer to be on another step. Now I have three days to recover again and then try to get another podium.”
