The redemption of Romain Febvre

This story took place on June 18, just a few days before summer. The MXGP world championship had moved to Winchester, Great Britain, and Romain Febvre was living his particular duel with Tim Gajser in the best possible way, as he lead the classification and was in an optimal form to continue adding as many points as he could. However, a race would leave him out at the beginning of the weekend. That Saturday, June 18, Febvre, who had already experienced the honey of victory less than a year ago, said goodbye to his title options and paved the way for rookie Gajser.

In fact, the injury of Febvre was not so much. He was out for a month, and forced to reappear in the Czech Republic on July 22 so he missed just two big tests, but equality was such with Gajser that a minimal absentee was lethal enough. In his case, there were 4 -the races that he missed- as well as the process of recovering his pace, something that wouldn’t happen until the last two events of the championship, where he didn’t finish up, again, due to inconveniences unrelated to his piloting.

That’s why 2017 is a challenge for him. Tim Gajser has won clearly and deservedly, but Febvre was already the king before the Slovenian broke into the scene. Undoubtedly, the equality between both is maximum, and many colleagues emphasize the superiority of this two monsters compared to rest of pilots. Nor should we forget the shadow of a motocross legend like Antonio Cairoli, who finished second this last season. In any case, Febvre’s goal in 2017 is to show why he used to be the king. He wants his redemption.
