With the 2019 series starting at the picturesque Neuquen track, Kjer-Olsen showed impressive speed throughout the weekend. Kicking off the GP with an imposing victory in the MX2 Qualifying Race, he then entered the all-important final motos full of confidence and looking to produce equally impressive performances.

Battling his way forward from a seventh-place start to claim an eventual second-place result in the opening moto, Thomas then went on to collect another runner-up result during the second and final MX2 moto after moving from third into the runner-up spot on lap five. Following his strong start to the championship the FC 250 powered rider sits second in the 2019 FIM MX2 World Championship’s provisional standings.

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will return to action at the second round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship in the United Kingdom on March 23/24.

Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “I’m quite happy to start this season with a second-place overall result here in Argentina. As a racer I’m always looking for race wins, but it is really good to start the season on the podium. In the first moto I spun out of the gate and gave myself some work to do. I managed to get up to second on lap 10, so I was pleased with that. The second moto went well. I moved from third to second and spent the whole race there. It’s going to be a long year with plenty of racing to be done, so I am happy to head back to Europe second in the championship. The plan now is to get back to work. I want to make the most of this short break in the series and continue working before the next round at Matterley Basin.”
