Jeremy Seewer took a brace of second placed finishes onboard his RM-Z250 at the weekend's Swedish Grand Prix, but they were enough for the overall win, his fifth of the season.
Despite being disappointed not to take a moto win, Seewer was unlucky not to claim a race victory, missing out by just over a second in the opening moto. He was then just five hundredths of a second off the top step of the podium in race two.
He said afterwards, "In the first moto I got a decent start and made my way to third position, where I then made a small mistake. That only cost me a few seconds, but it would prove crucial in the end as I came home in second, really close to Jorge Prado in first.
"And then in the second moto I got a really good start. I made the passes happen and moved into the lead really quickly. I had my teammate, Hunter Lawrence on my back in second place, in between me and Thomas Covington who was riding really well.
"I did my best all the race, I made a few mistakes near the end and of course I’m frustrated he passed me on that last corner but he was just on another level on those last couple of laps. It was frustrating on one side but I’m really happy to have got my fifth GP win this year, which is awesome for everyone in the Suzuki World MX2 team. I’m just enjoying racing so much at the moment and I’m having a lot of fun."
