The first event in the Race Calendar for the SX-season 18/19 proved to be quite a challenging start for the FOX youngster, Carl Ostermann. In a competitive line-up, and after two taxing, energy-sapping classification rounds (Moto 1: 4th; Moto 2: 3rd), the 13-year-old managed to secure a solid fourth place in the overall placing. “Carlos” did the best he could, however, at times his performance still too passive.
Carl on Sunday before the trip back:
I’m not really satisfied with the result. To be on top in this series, you always have to push yourself to the limit. But it was my first race of the season and I just need to get myself into a routine to be back into full race-mode.
Carl was a little rusty for the SX Academy opener. Two good starts got him a solid finish, but that’s not enough. Time to go back to the drawing board until the next race!
