    I would say that’ having a lot more advertising in national and local press and even on the TV would not only help people become aware of MX VICE but would raise the profile of British MX ! I’m sure that a fair while ago MX was shown on grandstand and was quite well represented on uk television and to me this is what needs to happen again! Yes I know that the Maxxis events are shown on Sky but not everyone has access to those channels! I would like to see British MX on BBC, ITV or what ever standard channel wants to show it!

    I would like to see young guys starting out on their career get access to pro’s who are willing to help them get better and faster. The forum could be used as the point of contact for advice in all aspects of motocross from fitness , technique , how to move forward from where they are. Priceless info that some can never get access to.

    With all the channels these days why can’t British championship mx be one one ? Good point.

    You could ask each schoolboy club to pick a rider to send over a race report, results and pictures from each of their meetings. This way it would also help promote both ways 🙂

    I think that hosting an event would raise the profile of MXVice and British MX the most. Although there are many events every weekend across the country, these are generally only accessible to those already within the sport, I feel that a specially tailored festival would be greatly beneficial to boosting the profile of MX.
    In a similar way to the Olympics try and teach young people about sports and get them involved, a motocross festival could do the same by encouraging people new to the sport to come along and learn about it and how to get involved. With MXVice being the host it would raise their profile both within and outside of motocross circles.

    An idea to drive more traffic to MX Vice, and also Facebook/Twitter pages would be to after every brit champs, redbull, GP have an amateur photo comp as well on your website, Narrow it down to say 5 then then give them a week to get the votes in! They will then all go to facebook drive their mates to your website and social media sights to cast their votes!Its a great way to try make things go viral for you guys. You could also look at maybe doing a video comp once a month?

    How about links to all motocross clubs and their federations so that everyone has only one place to link up to all clubs – also
    How about a calendar with ALL race meets on, from club meets to GPs

    You could add an unsung hero award that would go out to a rider of any level who has been producing great results who remains under the radar.
    Perhaps also you could incorporate a sponsors page, where those sponsors wanting to support riders moving up could see a list of those doing well, while advertising themselves for sponsorship, therefore giving the riders and sponsors greater exposure and also aiding those who aren’t just at the very top of the sport.

    I think an interesting new fetature could be a ‘fans view’ from the maojor races – we all get to see the press releases , video interviews etc from teams, riders and organisers after the events but maybe interviews with a handful of random fans each time whether it be video, sound or written interview, may give a more honest and frank reflection on meetings as a whole – what they enjoyed, what they didnt, what could be better etc, just another way that we could get opinion on how mx can better from the paying public, instead of those involved that have to say what the ‘big wigs’ want!

    Maybe do holeshot awards, give out free stickers so everyone wears them! go around your home town and put stickers everywhere…cinema, mcdonalds..anywhere! it would be cool to have live stream on your phone when you want to watch the AMA but your away in the campa…

    you could visit skateparks around your local area handing out stickers, a lot of young riders spend their weekends either racing or at the skatepark, these kids will come home, put their stickers on their mx bikes, scooters, cars, everywhere. people here there and everywhere will see your stickers and check out your website. also, sponsoring young riders who ride with school boy clubs would promote you to the wider racing community. Having a stand at the GP with a screen of your videos and leaflets with what the site is about will directly inform the motocross enthusiasts about you.

    This is the message I posted on facebook oops it was in wrong place….

    Stephen Clutty My comment for the free tickets looking for 3 if I win…;-). Does anyone remember the old dirt bike magazines or moto x action where they had a section solely for riding tips from the pros. So the idea is have anther tab on ur site for weekly riding tips with pic and videos and I am sure you will have people login back in each week… Cheers

    I think advertising in local motocross magazines, newspaper’s or on coverage of motocross on the tv! i think this would not just help people aware of british motocross racing it would make people aware of MX VICE!

  16. meganspence97

    August 14, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    A new feature i would like to see on MX VICE, would be race reports from a different person from each race, as being from Northern Ireland we dont get to hear about the up and coming racers from the rest of GB ! and the local news that happens in races over the sea as we dont get to go to often!

  17. meganspence97

    August 14, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    I also think to get you noticed you could sponsor local races! or get people to put your sticker/logo on peoples graphics!

  18. meganspence97

    August 14, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    I think you should put videos up of the all the local races, so everyone can see what racing is like in different areas!

Impressive Second for Benistant at MXGP of Trentino as Bonacorsi Delivers Career-Best Result

Published

on

By

Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2’s Thibault Benistant returned to form at round four of the MX2 World Championship with an impressive runner-up finish at the MXGP of Trentino. Adding to the team’s success in Pietramurata, Italy, was Andrea Bonacorsi, who delivered a stunning career-best result of sixth overall in front of his home crowd. At the same time, Rick Elzinga put in a hard-charge for ninth overall.

In Race One, Benistant got off to a great start and ran third before passing Sascha Coenen on Lap 12. Continuing to ride with a high pace, the French sensation closed in on the eventual race winner, Kay de Wolf, during the final laps of the race and crossed the line just under four seconds adrift of victory.

Another strong start in Race Two saw Benistant quickly engage in a battle for a place on the podium. Holding fifth until just past the halfway point of the race, Benistant capitalised on a mistake by Mikkel Haarup and moved into fourth. From there, the 198 chased home his teammate Bonacorsi and secured fourth for second overall. As a result, he has regained third position in the MX2 Championship Standings.

Bonacorsi, spurred on by his passionate home crowd, delivered a career-best race and overall result in Pietramurata. Despite having a rider fall in front of him at turn one, the 20-year-old put in a spirited ride through the field to finish 12th in Race One.

In Race Two, ‘Bona’ emerged from the first corner in second and immediately gave chase to the early leader. After slipping to third on lap seven, he maintained his impressive pace and kept the position to the flag. Following his breakout ride, Bonacorsi maintains 12th in the championship chase, but has closed the gap to the top 10.

One week on from his impressive sixth-place finish in Sardinia, Elzinga carried that same speed and momentum into round four and placed fourth in Race One. An unfortunate crash at the start of Race Two gave the Dutchman a lot of work to do on a circuit that proved challenging to pass on. Maintaining his razor sharp focus, the 44 fought back to 13th, which was enough to maintain ninth position in the MX2 Championship Standings.

The next round of the FIM Motocross World Championship will take place in Agueda, Portugal, on the weekend of May 5th.

Thibault Benistant

 2nd MXGP of Trentino, 40-points

 3rd MX2 Championship Standings, 148-points

“It wasn’t an easy weekend for me despite being on the box. I rode well, but there is still room for improvement and to show what I am really capable of. I know my speed can be better. Of course, I’m happy to finally be on the podium for the first time this year; it’s a big step in the right direction. But I want more, so we will keep working. It’s still a long season.”

Andrea Bonacorsi

 6th MXGP of Trentino, 29-points

 12th MX2 Championship Standings, 83-points

“Today I was able to show what I can do with a good start. I know I can run up front in MX2 and I proved that I can in race two. I’m really proud of myself with sixth overall and now we’ll keep working and focus on the next race in Portugal.”

Rick Elzinga

 9th MXGP of Trentino, 26-points

 9th MX2 Championship Standings, 110-points

“I’m not a ‘hard-pack’ rider, but I tend to ride well here. I felt good on the bike all weekend and put in a really good ride in Race One after making a mistake. I really pushed and made it all the way up to fourth. So, I was happy with that. In the second one I had another good start but in turn one a few of us crashed and my bike got tangled with another rider. It took two laps to catch the pack, but I kept pushing and ended up in 13th. My speed is good, and I’m happy with my riding, so we’ll keep working ahead of Portugal.”
