Jeremy Van Horebeek took victory last weekend in the MX Elite race on Sunday during the second round of the 2016 Internazionali d'Italia Motocross at the Lamezia Terme track in Calabria.

Van Horebeek took a strong start in the Elite race to lead Evgeny Bobryshev on the hardpack section of the tack, and kept the speed high in the tight but sandy turns. Pushing away from the rest of the pack, the two riders maintained a brisk and relentless competition until Bobryshev's late mistake in a corner caused him to slip and lose contact with the Belgian Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team rider.

"The track was pretty small with some jumps and some sandy corners, so the speed was high." Van Horebeek commented. "I felt good all day long without taking any risks and got second in the MX1 with some really good starts both motos.

"In the second moto it was a great battle with Bobryshev, and I am really happy to win yesterday. It gives me a good feeling for the start in Qatar in less than 20 days.

"I'm also really looking forward to do next week's race in Italy for the final preparation."

2015 World Champion Romain Febvre did not start the main event after an unfortunate opening lap crash in the MX1 race sent the French rider to the hospital for stitches in his elbow.

"Romain crashed right after the start and ended up with a cut in his elbow." Team manager Massimo Rispanti explained. "He got some stitches but it seems to be nothing serious.

"It was a positive weekend, and Jeremy was riding good and showing good speed. The YZ450FMs were running very well on this track."
