Suzuki’s Clement Desalle had a solid showing in the third round of the Motocross World Championship, which took place on Sunday in the Patagonian region of Argentina.

Desalle topped the podium in Race One, with Antonio Cairoli (KTM) taking second, 10.650 seconds back, and Max Nagl (Husqvarna) finishing third, 11.673 seconds adrift. 

The results of Race Two saw the same riders climb the rostrum, though the order was shuffled. Nagl took the win, Cairoli claimed another second (2.273 seconds back), and Desalle finished third (3.673 seconds adrift). 

American Ryan Villopoto finished one spot shy of the podium in both races.
