Maxxis helps guide Mattia Guadagnini to World Championship glory

18 July 2019

Maxxis has helped guide Mattia Guadagnini to world championship glory, with the young Italian rider sealing the Junior 125 World Motocross Championship at Trentino.

Racing for the Maddii Racing team, Guadagnini, riding on the MaxxCross MX-ST tyres for both races, was determined to win the second and final race of the 125cc class. He managed to have a perfect start, claiming the FOX holeshot and taking the lead. However, half way through the race, Guyon succeeded in overtaking Guadagnini. Fortunately, after a few meters the Italian bounced back, seizing the opportunity of an error made by the Frenchman and taking the lead once again - which he kept until the chequered flag to take the overall victory and with it the 2019 World Championship.

Mattia Guadagnini said, "I’m really happy with this weekend; it’s unbelievable to be the best 125cc rider in the world. My next EMX race is in Lommel, Belgium, and I hope to claim that title too. Thanks to the MX-ST, I had the immense traction and precise handling I needed to be the first across the line and to ultimately win the World Champion title."

Maxxis International UK’s Managing Director, Derek McMartin, said, "Mattia and the Maddii Racing team have done a brilliant job this season, and we're proud to have played a part in their success with the new MX-ST. 2019 is the tyre's first year of competition so to wrap up a championship so early is great news for everyone involved, and really highlights the tyre's performance potential."

The new MX-ST was comprehensively tested and developed by Maxxis in partnership with seven-time AMA Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath. It boasts a new, unique tread block design for improved grip and cornering performance, which also extends tyre life. The tyre's lightweight, pliable carcass design also delivers greater stability, comfort, and improves feel. It also delivers greater impact absorption and confidence over jumps.

Buyers of the new MX-ST before July 26 will also be able to enter a prize to draw to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Imola for the MXGP of Italy on August 18.
