Get the riders thoughts following the MXGP of The Netherlands below.
Romain Febvre: “The second race was so much better. I pulled the FOX Holeshot and rode my own race. I was feeling good, the track was heavy but I could make the difference. It’s a shame for the first race that I could not win because I got a stone stuck in the rear brake but anyway, win number 6 so I am really happy about it.”
Jorge Prado: “I didn’t get the best start in the second race and it took the first lap to get my position. I came into the weekend sick and I felt a bit worse this morning but this track today was really tough plus the sun came out to make it even harder. I gave my all, second overall, my points lead in the Championship look good and next round is in Turkiye which I am really excited to race go and race there!”
Jeremy Seewer: “It’s never easy to keep the local hero (Glenn Coldenhoff) behind in the second race on his home GP but I did it. We had quite a lot of fights this season for the third place on the podium and I had the better of him this time luckily. I struggled yesterday and we had to change the bike overnight and I felt a bit nervous but I’m thankful to the team that we could turn it around as I felt better today and had a good flow. To do a podium in the sand is always special for me and I’m super happy. Now off to Turkiye.”
Liam Everts: “I lost it for a moment at the end of the race (the GP win) as I went a bit too defensive but I managed to get Jago (Geerts) back. The move was on the limit but it was for the overall which I had no clue about. I’m super happy and big thanks to the team”
Lucas Coenen:”I crashed in the first race in a corner and costed me a lot of energy so it got me really hungry for the second race. I rode very well in that second one as I passed Liam (Everts) quite quickly and I made a good gap and I control my race so it was good.”
Simon Längenfelder: “For sure I know that I can ride on sand for a long time now but unfortunately in that second race I could not find my flow and I tried to push but made a mistake. The track was really difficult so congrats to the other guys as they did a great job. Sometimes it cannot go always perfect but we’re ready to bounce back for the next few races.”
Lotte Van Drunen: “I knew already from yesterday that I was the fastest. Yesterday in race one I had a bad start but today I took the Holeshot and it made it a lot easier for me. It’s amazing to do it in front of my home crowd, and to win with a 1-1 makes it even more special ad I’ll remember this one.”
Andrea Bonacorsi : “I never give up and I feel comfortable in the sand. I felt a bit tired in the first race and didn’t want to make too many mistakes on this track but we managed to go 2-2 and first overall so I’m really happy and I want to thank all my team and sponsors. I also want to wish the best recovery to my teammate Ivano (Van Erp) who had a crash yesterday. It was a pity because I thought it was possible to go 1-2 on the podium but best of luck to him and thank you everyone.”
