Round two - MXGP of The Netherlands
The Dutch Grand Prix marked the opening of the 250 European championship where Maxxis MaxxCross tyres placed themselves in the top ten of the category with two riders.
The best result came from the current EMX125 leader Liam Everts, who, waiting to take part in the second race of the championship, trained well riding his 4-stroke 250 bike, finishing in a respectable 6th place.
A good performance was also had for the reigning EMX125 champion Mattia Guadagnini, whose debut in the major class was made more demanding by the heavy race conditions. However, the Husqvarna Maddii Racing rider raced with a good progression finishing the first round 12th and the second 4th, achieving a satisfactory 9th place overall.
To satisfy the need for maximum traction and directionality, Maxxis riders relied on the Maxxcross MX-ST tyres for the front wheel and MX-SM tyres for the rear wheel, which proved to be the perfect choice for the conditions due to the sandy terrain and the rain throughout the weekend.
Round one - Success for Liam Everts and Maxxis at the MXGP of Great Britain
Just like the start of the 2019 EMX125 season, this year Maxxis tyres yet again dominated the opening round of the European 125 championship, held on the demanding British track of Matterley Basin.
The wet conditions over the weekend meant that Maxxis riders opted for the Maxxcross MX-ST both on the front and on the rear, due to its excellent grip and directional performance derived from the design of the blocks and the calibrated compound for soft terrains. Among these riders, there was Liam Everts, son of the 10 times World champion Stefan and grandson of the motocross World champion Harry, who imposed his clear superiority in both races securing a fantastic Maxxis win.
In the same class, the Maxxcross MX-ST also distinguished itself for the performance of the Fantic Motor officer Andrea Bonacorsi, who, after retiring from the first heat due to problems with the bike, redeemed himself in the next one and finished 5th.
A brilliant performance was also had for the Husqvarna Maddii Racing Italian rider Alberto Forato, who disputed two gritty races in the MX2 achieving the 6th final place; his teammate Mattia Guadagnini finished 12th and the Spanish Ruben Fernandez also made a mark, with two starts in the first five positions which underlined the special grip offered by the Maxxcross MX-ST in the mud.
