MORE PODIUM SUCCESS BRINGS MAX NAGL CLOSER TO THE TOP OF THE MXGP STANDINGS

Wrapping up round five of the Motocross World Championship in Mexico with two third place moto finishes as well as third in the GP’s overall classification, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl has moved into the top five of the MXGP championship standings.

Capitalising on the hard work put in by his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team in readying his FC 450 for the high altitude Mexican GP, Nagl stormed out of the gate to grab the holeshot in both MXGP motos.

Holding on to fourth for the most part of the opening race the German made a late charge that allowed him to pass Evgeny Bobryshev for an eventual third position at the chequered flag. Finding himself in third early on in moto two, Nagl went on to round out the GP of Mexico with another third place finish.

For Nagl’s MXGP teammate Christophe Charlier a fall during Saturday’s qualifying race almost meant the end of his Mexican GP. Managing to put the crash behind him the Frenchman came back strong on Sunday to collect 13th a 12th place results from the two MXGP motos.

In the MX2 category it was another GP of mixed fortunes for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Anstie. Running second in the opening moto the Brit was forced to retire due to a mechanical issue. Anstie then powered his FC 250 to another strong start in the second moto, going on to finish as runner-up.

Injuring his hand during the qualifying race, Thomas Covington had to endure another GP racing in pain. Fighting hard in both MX2 motos the American wrapped up his participation in the Mexican GP with 12th and 14th place results.

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will now head back to Europe for round six of the FIM Motocross World Championship in Latvia on April 30, May 1.
