    Background: In Geneva took place (April 19th) the second course of the Championship of Europe in Motocross (class 250ccm).

    The weather was rainy but nevertheless, the spectators came numerous. 25 drivers were at the start. The only Englishman was Stonebridge (Number 12).

    Stonebridge took the first place after the start and hold it for 3 rounds.

    After 5 rounds, the czech Cizek is situated at the first place, following by Stonebridge.

    We find Stonebridge in the 10th round in front again.

    He can ward of the attacks of the Swede Dahlen and the Czech Cizek. (Champion of Europe at present!)
    The classement of the first course is the following:
    1. Stonebridge
    2. Dahlen
    3. Cizek
    4. Rickardsson
    5. Rolf Muller.

    The second course (We have only filmed the first course:), too, was winning by Stonebridge. The second, Kmoch Czech) came almost 2 minutes later.

    Classmate after 2 courses:
    1. Brian Stonebridge (GB) on Greeves, 2 points.

    2. Jaroslav Kmoch (Czech), 8 points.

    3. Lennart Dahlen (Swede), 8 points.
