The European MX season is finally underway with championships in Holland, Germany, Estonia and France. We are pleased to announce that many of our FXR athletes took part in all of the events over the weekend. Here is a look at some of the highlights.
WZ Racing’s Latvian rider Thomas Sileika was third in the first heat of the German Championship ADAC MX Master. He is fourth in the standings after the first round. (If you look at the second place finisher, that is Mikael Pichon’s son on a factory Suzuki)
As quoted by Thomas after the race. “3-10 for 4th overall this weekend at the first round of ADAC. Really proud of everyone and myself. Don’t know how many riders there should be on the gate if they all had to go through what I had the last 2 months with injuries and limited bike time, but from now on we move forward and build from here. Thanks @wzracing @fxrmoto @ethenitaly @splitdesigns #safe#rigensi and the rest behind me!”
TMV backed rider, young Eric Schwella got some points in his first race in the German ADAC Junior Championship.
New Zealand’s Dylan Walsh had his first race in Europe at the Dutch Master in Harfsen. He is ready to go for the European Championship that starts in Trentino, Italy next weekend.
Indrek Magi, third overall in Estonia. Indrek will be competing at the European championship in Italy this coming weekend.
Ander Valentin was using the French championship as a warm up for the MXGP in Italy this weekend. He finished sixth overall in France.
