Romain Febvre and Thomas Convington Win In Mexico

Posted:

Overnight storms made the conditions extremely tough and technical at the circuit of Leon in Mexico for the penultimate round of the FIM Motocross World Championship.

The saturated dirt, which is a mix of clay and soil, became very thick and sticky, which kept the riders on their toes as they were faced with the challenge of riding fast but smart.

Consistency wasn‰Ûªt a problem for Yamaha Factory Racing Yamalube‰Ûªs Romain Febvre who waxed everyone to record a perfect fifty point score, his fourth this season.

It was business as usual for Yamaha Factory Racing Yamalube‰Ûªs Romain Febvre who upped his stats to fourteen race wins, twelve consecutive podiums, of which seven have been grand prix overalls.

The 2015 FIM Motocross World Champion made it look far too easy today when he won the first race with an even bigger gap than the one Ryan Villopoto pulled in the Qualifying Race in Thailand.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs never easy but this one was really good, I enjoyed the track. This morning it was really muddy but the second race the track was perfect and I had a lot of fun.‰Û

Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team‰Ûªs Thomas Covington was the break out star in MX2 after hitting two milestones with his first ever race win and MX2 grand prix overall.

What better way to head into your home grand prix than as the most recent round winner? Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team‰Ûªs Thomas Covington hit a couple of milestones today and proved just how versatile he is with a solid ride in race one for fourth, which he followed up with his first ever race win in race two and overall victory.

‰ÛÏI am beyond stoked. I didn‰Ûªt even know I had the overall win until I walked up to the podium and I had to ask where I should stand. It is an amazing feeling.‰Û
