The MX2 class is full of young and motivated riders and Lucas and Sacha Coenen will join them for Lierop. These talented twins regularly impressed in the MX2 World Championship last year and Lucas won his first Grand Prix in Indonesia at the age of sixteen.

A fifth place was his share in the final standings and he certainly wants to improve on that this year. Sacha also regularly showed that he has the speed to compete at the front. Highlights were his second place in the qualifying heat in Finland and top five finishes in the Czech Republic and Sweden.

In the deep sand of Lierop, the Coenen brothers will compete against riders like Kay de Wolf, Cas Valk, Hakon Osterhagen, Max Werner, Scott Smulders, Bradley Mesters, Hakon Fredriksen, Oriol Oliver and others.

Also in the 500 class we get fireworks with the participation of Jeffrey Herlings, Jago Geerts, Pauls Jonass, Calvin Vlaanderen, Brent van Doninck and others.

The weather forecast looks good, so the Dutch MX Season Opener in Lierop has all the ingredients to see a great day of racing.

Tomorrow, Sunday April 21, the grand final of the Dutch Masters of Motocross will be held on the beautiful Markelo circuit. The champions will be crowned here and Timo Heuver and Gyan Doensen are currently doing very well in the 85 and 125 class. In the 500 class Jeffrey Herlings has the best chances to take the title, but in the 250 class it will be tight. Cas Valk is in the lead but has a lead of only four points over Rick Elzinga.

The 250 class will be a very interesting class to watch because in addition to the battle between Elzinga and Valk for the title, the fast Frenchman Thibault Benistant will also be riding in Markelo. Kay Karssemakers from the Fantic Factory MX2 team will also race in Markelo. Karssemakers is rebuilding after a winter full of injuries and is starting to get better again.

During the last Grand Prix in Trentino, Karssemakers finished in fifteenth place in both heats and is happy to compete with the men in the top five in Markelo.

The training sessions start at 8:30 am and the starting gate will drop down for the first time at 11:05 am.
