Hard work and a strong team behind the scenes has seen Altherm JCR Yamaha do the double, with
Kirk Gibbs crowned the Fox New Zealand Motocross Championship‰Ûªs MX1 winner and Maximus Purvis
taking out the MX2 title.
Well-deserved celebrations ensued last night after the final round of four wrapped up yesterday, with
two of the team‰Ûªs riders on top of their podiums at Taupo‰Ûªs Digger McEwen Motocross Park.
Altherm JCR Yamaha‰Ûªs Team Manager Josh Coppins is a very happy man and believes it has been
close to a decade since a team in New Zealand won both the MX1 and MX2 titles in a season.
‰ÛÏTeams have done the double before, for example, last year another manufacturer won the 125cc and
MX2 title but a double MX1 and MX2, I‰Ûªm not sure when that was last done. I would say over 10 years
