Opening 2016 with a victory and a dominant presence at the front, Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team riders Romain Febvre and Jeremy Van Horebeek finished on the podium Sunday in Sardegna at the Internazionali d’Italia Motocross 2016 in Alghero in front of 10,000 motocross fans.

The first of three Italian Championship races in the early-season months of January and February put Yamaha Factory riders to their first competitive test of 2016. In heavy conditions these races allow team mechanics and riders to evaluate careful preparations and training ahead of the first FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship race in Qatar at the end of the month.

Under sunny skies in a difficult MX1 race on the YZ450FM Febvre and Van Horebeek finished 1-2, and later in the Elite race the duo arrived a steady second and third behind Russian rider Evgeny Bobryshev from a 40-rider combined field of top 20 riders each from MX1 and MX2.

Kemea Official Yamaha MX Team rider Valentin Guillod registered his first YZ450F results at 10th during the Elite race, with DP19 Yamaha Official MX Team’s David Philippaerts finishing ahead of the young Swiss rider in eighth. Philippaerts finished ninth in the earlier MX1 event with Guillod two spots back in 11th.

In MX2 Swedish DP19 Yamaha Official MX2 Team rider Alvin Ostlund was a solid fifth in his class, later 21st in the Elite race, while in the 125 class of talented young riders it was DP19 Yamaha Official’s Roan Van Moosdijk on a Yamaha YZ125 finishing second and showing great promise into the future.
