Bax/Stupelis start the season with a win in Eersel
The sidecar combination of Bax/Stupelis kicked the season off in grand style with a victory at Eersel on Sunday. The event had three motos, of which the Bax combination won one, and took two second places to ensure overall victory.
“For us as a combination it was the first outing in the sand, and we had to get used to it initially. Despite this, I think we rode well, and our level rose steadily throughout the day. We’re feeling good as a combo, and in the coming weeks we’ll improve even more,” Etienne Bax said.
The next important race is on Sunday 4 March at Lochem, which will be the first round of the Open Dutch Championship series. The world championship series kicks off three weeks later at Oss.
