“The engine is unbelievable good!”
Seems that the canny Steve Dixon as yet again come up trumps with another possible rising star of world motocross, new Russian kid on the block Vsevolod “Seva” Brylyakov showed he’s enjoying his time with one of the most experienced team set ups in the MXGP paddock. This weekend he moved a step closer to where he wants to be in MX2 and finished third overall in Mexico.
A win without issues for any rider is probably unlikely due to the dominance of Jeffrey Herlings, but after tasting the podium once I expect Seva to be amongst the front runners for the rest of the year – lets hope we see this form at Canada Heights this weekend.

Vsevolod Brylyakov: “I feel amazing with this first podium in my career; it’s just great that it happens now! In the first moto I got a good start and was consistent; I was following Seewer and finally passed him and pulled away. It was good to score a second place in the first moto, but it also made me nervous for the second one! I had another good start but then it was a nightmare as I crashed and thought that I had lost any chance to be on the podium. But I just tried again to do my best, rode smoothly and when I saw that Jonass also crashed I thought there was maybe a chance for me to finally get this podium. I continued to push, caught a few guys and my mechanics helped me on the board to know what was happening. I can’t believe that I got this podium; my thanks to Steve Dixon, Monster Energy, Kawasaki, my teammate Tommy Searle, all our sponsors and Cosworth who did a great job – the engine is unbelievable good!”
