Mathys Boisrame To Fill In For Jeffrey Herlings

Posted:

Former European Champion and MX2 Grand Prix podium finisher, Mathys Boisrame, will step into Red Bull KTM colours for the first and second rounds of the imminent 2022 FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship in the UK and Italy.

The Frenchman completed several testing days with the defending MXGP World Champions and will now fill in, in the absence of #1 Jeffrey Herlings as the 2021 title winner continues to recover from surgery on his left heel.

Boisrame will take a place under the awning and next to countryman Tom Vialle for the re-arranged British Grand Prix at Matterley Basin this Saturday and Sunday and the Grand Prix of Lombardia at Mantova the following weekend. The 23-year-old made his debut in the MXGP category in the final five rounds of 2021 and posted four top ten moto results. Boisrame won the 2018 EMX250 European crown and contested two and a half seasons in MX2 where he graduated to the front of the pack.

Joel Smets, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager, said “When they postponed the British Grand Prix another week this gave us and Mathys a little more time to do some riding and further testing and it became clear that we could bring him into the team already for the first round. Jeffrey is unique: it’s impossible to find another rider like him but we can appreciate Mathys’ speed and his determination. He has already shown that he can run fast and strong at Grand Prix level. It’s a good chance for him and some important track miles for us.”
