Team Suzuki World MXGP and MX2 kicked-off the 2016 season with strong podium results at the weekend’s Hawkstone International Motocross in the UK.

RM-Z450-mounted MXGP team riders Kevin Strijbos and Ben Townley were joined by MX2 riders Jeremy Seewer and Bas Vaessen aboard the RM-Z250 for the season-opening international at the former GP venue in Shropshire that saw a strong entry of international riders. It was also the first time that the teams raced under the leadership of new General Manager Stefan Everts.

Said Everts: “Under tough track conditions our riders and machines showed good potential. We had a real baptism of fire, but I’m happy about it. We made some progress and we know what we can work on for the next races. Overall it was a good weekend for the team.”

Strijbos had some difficulties feeling comfortable on his bike in the first two motos, but improved to claim a podium position in the Superfinal; a mix of the top MXGP and MX2 class riders. He said: “I didn’t feel as good on the bike compared to training over the past weeks, but we made changes for the Superfinal and I could finally show what my real potential is.

I felt like you could see the progression I have made. We now understand where we can improve, so it’s only up from here on,” added the Belgian who was fourth overall in the MX1 class with a fifth and fourth place; and third in the Superfinal.
