The Beursfoon KTM team team had a successful outing at the Open Dutch Championship event at Rosmalen, going home with three podium finishes. Kay de Wolf won the 85cc big wheel class in front of teammate Scott Smulders, and Raff de Wolf finished third in the 85cc small wheel class. Milan and Sem Beijer also had good outings in the 65cc and 85cc classes respectively.
Milan started the day off by qualifying seventh in his class. A lesser start in race one forced him into a comeback ride. He rode well to finish sixth. A better start in race two ironically yielded him seventh, for sixth overall.
Raff de Wolf qualified third in the 85cc small wheel class. A few crashes in the first race kept him down to fifth, but in the second race he finished a strong third. He is second in the championship standings.
The 85cc big wheel class had a huge entry, and qualifying was split into two groups. Kay de Wolf claimed pole in his group, with Scott Smulders second. Sem Beijer posted the 8th fastest time. Kay and Scott surged to the lead in the first race, and after an initial tussle finished in that order. Sem was fourth initially, but a crash dropped him to 14th. He recovered to finish 8th.
Kay de Wolf rode a carbon copy of his first race in the second outing. After a clean holeshot, there was no stopping him, and he won easily, increasing his championship lead.
Scott grabbed an early second spot, but lost it temporarily when held up by backmarkers. He quickly recovered, though, claiming 2-2 for the day. Sem was tenth initially, but advanced to 8th, demonstrating increasing confidence.
Kay de Wolf and Scott Smulders are strong in first and second places in the championship standings respectively. The team will continue the series next week at Westerbork.
