EMX150 – Honda 150 European Championship

Emil Weckman has retained the EMX150 title. The all-Dunlop Honda championship for juniors was dominated by the Finn who won eight of the ten races this season.

Tyre Choice

The riders used Dunlop Geomax MX11 sand tyre on the rear with the Geomax MX 3S on the front.

Eddy Seel, Dunlop MX Race Coordinator:

“Clement did a great job in conditions that can only be described as extreme. I’m really pleased that Kawasaki has finally achieved the result that we knew they were capable of. Looking to the future, I’m certain that we are going to see huge success for Emil Weckman. It is good for Dunlop to be able to be part of the development of such great young talent.”
