Salom wins penultimate CEV Buckler round

Salom wins penultimate CEV Buckler round

Spaniard wins in Valencia to keep championship challenge alive.

Runner-up in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2008, Luis Salom tasted victory in another championship this past weekend, winning the penultimate round of the CEV Buckler Spanish Championship. The Spaniard overcame some familiar faces to World Championship fans in Sunday´s 125GP event, held at Valencia.

After a furious final lap, Salom edged out fellow countrymen Efren Vazquez and Adrian Martin as the podium places were decided, with former 125cc World Championship rider Pere Tutusaus just missing out on the rostrum.

Salom´s victory reduces the championship advantage held by Vazquez to just nine points, with Alberto Moncayo´s fifth place in Valencia ruling him out of the title running.

The final round of the CEV Buckler takes place on November 16th in Jerez, where the 2008 series winner will be decided.
