Clément Desalle qualifies third in Bulgaria

Clément Desalle of the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team qualified third for tomorrow's Bulgarian round of the FIM World MXGP Motocross Championship at Sevlievo.

The Belgian started from gate four and maintained that position at the start of the qualifying race before quickly moving to third, a position he held to the finish. KRT teammate Julien Lieber joined Clément in the top ten to the gate for each of tomorrow's points-scoring motos after a strong ride.
Clément Desalle: "My reactions at the gate were OK, but I lost a little momentum leaving turn one when somebody touched me. I was able to get back quickly to fourth and was putting pressure on Febvre when he fell. That put me third. I was closing to Gajser in second when he clipped a haybale and it rolled into my path. That cost me contact to him, but I felt easy today and I go full of confidence into tomorrow's GP motos."
Marshall Weltin of the F&H Racing Team continued his excellent form since joining the team on Kawasaki and earnt eighth gate pick in the MX2 class of tomorrow's GP.
