Jeremy Seewer and the Suzuki World MX2 team head back to Europe after a successful trip to Mexico, where the red-plated #91 Suzuki RM-Z250 rider extended his points at the top of the MX2 World Championship.
Held at the high altitude track in Leon, which is 1800m above sea-level, Seewer got out of the gate well in the first race, controlling it from start to finish for his second race win of his career. The second race didn’t quite go as well with him battling back from a top-10 place to finish fourth, tying him on points with overall winner Thomas Covington.
However, his 43 points saw him extend his lead to eight points over Pauls Jonass as the series heads back to Europe for the next few months.
He said, "I did everything that I said I wanted to do. I just let it happen and the results came out well. I had a really good start in the first moto, we knew that I could do that after yesterday so I was pleased with that. Then I just put in some fast laps and felt good on my bike, I made a gap, and then took the win comfortably. It was nice to take a win in normal conditions, after my first victory which was in the mud in Indonesia.
"The second moto, I had the same start in mind but it didn’t quite work out as well. I was pretty confident to get it done but sometimes it just doesn’t work out right. Still, I was in a decent spot, it was just hard to see the track and finding lines to pass. It's nice to extend the points lead but a little disappointed that I didn’t win the GP. That would have been nice to come away with but keeping the red plate is the important thing, especially as we now head to Europe like this."
