Jeremy Seewer took the overall victory at the Italian Grand Prix at the weekend, taking a win and a second placed finish from the two motos onboard his RM-Z250.
An impressive start in the opening race allowed Seewer to get away at the front, and he took a commanding win. Tougher conditions and blistering heat in race two made it harder for the young Swiss, but second place was enough to give him the overall win and keep his championship ambitions going in the right direction.
He said, "I am really happy to win the GP. I was feeling so good on the bike, we didn’t change anything on the RM-Z250 all weekend and I was one of the fastest and I’m pretty happy with how everything went.
"The first race I just tried to get out front early and make a gap so I didn’t have to push too hard, and that’s what I was able to make happen. The second moto was really tough though; I tried to follow Pauls Jonass but a berm broke and I just made a mistake and once you stop here in this heat, your whole body starts to overheat.
"I still pushed and I came back to try and pass Thomas Covington for second. When I tried the first time we collided and we both went down. We both got up ok and it took me a few more laps to finally get around him but I managed it. "I’m super happy with the overall and now we try to do it all over again in Portugal next weekend."
