WATCH THE CONTROVERSIAL MANTOVA GRAND PRIX: 450 WINNER HAS WIN TAKEN AWAY
It’s sad when a professional racer gets his win taken away after the race is over, but according to the FIM three riders ignored waving yellow flags and raced through a section where a rider was down. All three riders claim that the flaggers were poorly positioned and never saw the flag, and Febvre said that there was no downed rider when he got there. This race recap video does not show the incident, but this will linger in the news—at least until the next GP, which is on Wednesday.
Jeremy Seewer was moved up to first place, Jorge Prado was moved down to third place. The Mantova #1 overall results were changed as far back as tenth place and the season points standings were readjusted.
