Thomas Kjer Olsen hasn’t had a great year so far, (out of 18 potential moto scores so far in 2020, he has two 4ths, tw 3rds and one second), but the win at Mantova #1 will brighten his outlook for the remaining 9 races.

Tom Vialle had a bad second moto, but his first moto win made the day bearable.

Ben Watson got his first ever 250 GP podium at Mantova #1.

Isak Gifting got a fill-in ride for the GasGas 250 team after their original riders were injured. He finished an impressive 10th overall in his first GP.
