Everts happy with Team Suzuki World MXGP podiums in France

Posted:

Team Suzuki World MXGP and MX2 team riders Kevin Strijbos and Jeremy Seewer raced to podium positions at Valence International Motocross in France last weekend.

Track conditions were tough following poor weather during the last few weeks, but Strijbos put the RM-Z450 into third place in the MX1 class and Seewer his RM-Z250 to a second place overall in MX2.

Strijbos, however, didn‰Ûªt feel as confident in his riding as he did during qualifying. "I‰Ûªm not so pleased with myself," the Belgian said. "There were some good things today but also some bad things and I feel like the bad things had the upper-hand. But it was a good weekend overall and I‰Ûªm happy to walk away injury-free from the pre-season races and I‰Ûªm looking forward to the start of the GP season.‰Û

Suzuki World MX General Manager Stefan Everts was positive about Strijbos‰Ûª day. "I have seen some good things today, but his riding in training was even better. We need to try and get that same level at the races for him. I know he is good, he rides some of the fastest laps, but he needs to complete the task,‰Û
