MAX ANSTIE, GP OF BENELUX, HONDA GARIBOLDI

 

 

First deserved podium of the season for Team Honda Gariboldi-Esta‘s Max Anstie and his CRF250R in Lierop in Round 14 of the MX2 World Championship in front of 22,000 spectators !

 

The strong british rider Max ANSTIE showed how fast he can be in these testing conditions in deep sand finishing a fantastic 3rd in both motos of the Grand Prix onboard of his performant CRF250R and passing all the top riders except for the extraordinary dutch rider Jeffrey Herlings and belgian Van Horebeek. With all the pieces of the puzzle coming together Anstie justified his nomination for a place at the MXoN in Lommel for Team England.

 

The russian Aleksandr TONKOV finished 11th overall with a brave ride after crashing in the warm up of the sunday morning and starting in both motos physically limited. Tonkov will also take part at the MXoN in Lommel for Team Russia with his CRF250R.

 

“it took us too many GP’s to get here today but this was the goal of the team since the beginning of the season: we wanted to take the CRF250R on the Podium and today the bike is there ! Max did a great job and we always believed he could do it, we just needed a bit of luck and everything going in the right directions. We knew when we started the season that we had to develop a new bike and when you do this you can meet with some problems as it happened to all the bikes we see in front now in the championship, it’s a duty you have to pay to be up there next year. We have always worked as hard as possible for Max and Aleksandr to give them a top bike to ride and today we can say that we reached the goal. I have to thank so much all the staff of the Martin Racing Technology for this fantastic podium, they worked so hard with us all along the season and they really deserved to see the bike up there. We also had a great cooperation with Technical Touch for our Kayaba suspensions they did a marvellous job and you could see the results on tracks like Lierop. I wish to thank all our partners and sponsors and I can grant them that we will work harder to get these kind of results weekly next season.” commented Team Owner manager Giacomo Gariboldi.
