The young Spanish rider, who is only 16 years old, achieved Pole Position and her first podium in the third round of the Women’s Motocross World Championship.
Daniela Guillén (#255) and her team, WMX Spain, have much to celebrate thanks to a great performance by the Spanish rider. At just 16 years of age, the young rider has shown that she is on a par with the great international stars of women’s Motocross, achieving the first World Championship podium of her career with two third places in the two races in which she competed. Guillén rides a KTM motorbike equipped with Galfer brake products.
In the same women’s category, Dutch rider Lynn Valk (#172) took an excellent second place in the first race, although she had to retire from the second race due to an accident. Lynn Valk is now second in the overall WMX standings, 12 points behind the leader.
In addition, Germany’s Larissa Papenmeier (#423) finished fourth on her Yamaha, while Norway’s Martine Hughes (#511) came sixth on her Honda 114 Motorsport.
In the MX2 class, Italian rider Andrea Adamo (#80) finished fifth with two solid rounds, while Swedish rider Isak Gifting (#517), with the Hitachi KTM team, finished seventh. Young Liam Everts (#72), son of Motocross legend Stefan Everts, made it into the top ten, with a ninth place finish.
In the premier MXGP class, Belgian rider Jeremy Van Horebeek (#89) finished ninth on his Beta motorbike equipped with “Disc Wave®” RWS front (ø270 mm) and RW rear (ø240 mm) brake discs, together with Racing G1396R sintered brake pads.
The next round of the Motocross World Championship will be held in Arroyomolinos (Madrid, Spain) from 28 to 29 May, where Galfer will have a prominent presence.
