Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP’s Jeremy Seewer clinched his seventh podium win at the 19th and final round of the FIM Motocross World Championship in Matterley Basin, Great Britain.
The Swiss rider secured the MXGP Championship bronze medal a week ago. He continued to display stellar performance and enjoyed the last round of 2023, going 2-4 for second overall. Meanwhile, Glenn Coldenhoff ended his 2023 season fourth overall in both the Grand Prix and Championship Classification.
Thanks to the efforts of the entire Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team, Seewer, Coldenhoff, and Maxime Renaux, as well as Gebben van Venrooy Yamaha’s Calvin Vlaanderen, Yamaha successfully defended the coveted MXGP Manufacturers World Title.
“Today was a good day. It was solid. I am happy I had two solid motos. I had a fall yesterday, which upset a cut on my elbow from a fall I had last weekend and just hit the ground quite hard, so I thought it would be very tough for me today. It was not easy today.
I just wanted to survive, and I ended up doing really well. It was a pity I lost third place at the end of Race Two, but it didn’t matter overall. I am happy to finish this year strong, and now looking forward to ‘The Nations’,” said Seewer.
“I definitely have some positives to take away from today. We have been working really hard on the starts lately, and then today, I took two holeshots. Race One was tough. I had the guys pushing me from behind all too long, and then I made two silly mistakes myself, which cost me.
I was not very happy with that. In Race Two, I was just off the pace. I don’t want to make excuses, but my back hurts a lot from hitting that big quad every lap. It’s a shame I didn’t finish on the podium, but overall, fourth is solid. Although, I did want to get a medal, and fourth is so close yet so far. Still, a lot of positives to build on for next year. Now, I’m looking forward to ending the season strong at the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations,” adds Coldenhoff.
