Jonass romps to Dutch double

KTM factory ace Pauls Jonass took over where Jeffrey Herlings left off with a stunning double win in the sand of Valkenswaard in Holland.

With a coupe of fast starts, he soon took to the front in both races and was unchallenged as he took the maximum 50 points haul for the weekend. He extended his title lead over Suzuki’s Jeremy Seewer to 19 points as they head to Jonass’ home GP in Latvia in two weeks.

Jonass, who admitted his bike wasn’t 100% set up right after the opening moot, said: “We made a few improvements on the bike and that helped a lot in the second moto. In the second race after 15 minutes, I started to cruise around. The track was difficult and it was easy to make mistakes.”

Seewer took second overall after battling through from mediocre starts. He took fourth place in the opener and then tailed Jonass in the second moto, and dropped 10 points further behind the KTM man.

Jonass’ charge was helped as many of the top riders had problems. Jorge Prado, winner of the last GP in Italy, had two flying starts but ended up crashing in both motos. Julien Lieber, second in the opener, went out in the opening lap of the second race. And Thomas Covington, third first tiome out, crashed early in race two and retired with a damaged bike.

Seewer said: “Twice today I came from around 15th to take second overall, I did well. Pauls is pretty strong in the moment, especially in the sand. But there are many races still to come.”

Third overall was Belgian Yamaha ace Brent Van Doninck, who took his first podium finish of the year. He said: “The first race took a lot of energy as I came from the back. Second moto I had a better start and didn’t have to use so much energy on the first few laps. I came close to Seewer at the end but was tired.”

Thomas Kjer Olsen took fourth overall despite wiping out in a crash in the first moto, and South African Calvin Vlaanderen was sixth overall from Benoit Paturel.

Brit Adam Sterry held third place in the opening race but dropped back and eventually pulled out after twisting his knee, scoring no points. He didn’t start race two. And Ben Watson, running in the top 10 in the opener, dropped back and didn’t score. Second time out he got nine points for 19th overall.

And Conrad Mewse also had bad luck, getting a poor start in the opener but taking a single point for 20th but falling from a good place in the second moto and not scoring.
