Off track:

I want to give props to Marek and Sean for professionally working over the motorcycles so I could tend to the pit, manage hospitality, engage with fans, and perform the custodial busy work – if a broom is in my hand that means the plan is working perfectly.

Jorgen and Tyler delegated social jobs off to myself and their mechanics to get all the good content, which we strategised to keep them focused on riding.

We had a couple moto influencers and micro celebs set up shop with us thanks to The Collective Experience, and it brought more folks into the Bolt pit for photos and fun.

I cannot overstate how RIGHT the vibe was in our pit. Special thanks to Luc and Tarvo for providing food for the team, which kept spirits high.

On track:

Holy cannoli was I impressed. The track was absolutely cannibalised by the time 250 group C took to it, and the guys persevered through the gigantic ruts in practice and Q1. Dirt Wurx prepped the course up before the 250 groups went out, and though it wasn’t perfect when we started circulating, the track was fast and solid.

Jorgen set a burner for P22, and Tyler iced it for P34 – putting both men in the show. I was doing cartwheels the whole way back to the trailer and we had a big celebration when we all got back. They did everything just right.

I was so jubilant when I saw it before us, my long play bearing fruit! Bringing these guys into the states in October, the adversity they overcame in AX, the team building and bonding, learning American style race craft, all of it. I took a chance and bet on myself to be able to develop these guys into being SX weapons.

In the night show Jorgen and Tyler were both in the same heat, and JMT had a great pick and a phenomenal drive going into the first corner but got pinballed off the track. Tyler got pinched out of the gate and the both of them took the opportunity to get more laps in on the treacherous track. The LCQ went about the same, but I think we all felt that the goal of making the night show was achieved and we needed to walk before we run.

I believe both these riders are main event capable. This is a first for the team.

MXGP World Championship

Hawkstone International in the books for Gabriel SS24 KTM

In the MX2 class Cas qualified 3rd and had a good feeling on the sandy circuit. In moto 1 he had a good start but struggled to pass on the one lined track and by the time he got to third position the leaders had pulled away. Shortly into moto 2 there was a red flag with a full restart. Cas again restarted in second behind current MX2 world champion Adrea Adamo to where he would finish the 25 minute + 1 lap race. As well as securing 2nd on the podium these results qualified Cas to line up for the superfinal. The MX2 riders were let off the gate first shortly followed by the MX1 riders. Cas started in second and throughout the moto was picked off gradually by the faster 450 machines. He finished a very respectable 12th in the combined results, and the second MX2 machine. Up next for Cas is Lierop International this Sunday 3rd March.

Coming into the weekend Josh was carrying a slight lower back issue but was able to compete and got stronger as the day went on. He qualified 17th which he was not happy with but didn’t let it affect him ahead of the races. In moto 1 he had an unusually bad start but got up to 11th place just behind Adam Sterry and despite getting close was not able to make the pass. In moto 2 he had another good jump but had more bad luck when he got caught up with another rider and had a first turn crash. Coming from dead last he came through the pack to finish 10th. Heading into the superfinal Josh rode his best all day and finished the superfinal 7th in the combined results, 6th MX1 machine and top British rider for which he received the Vaughan Semmens Memorial Trophy for. This was Josh’s last preseason race to get the final touches sorted before his season officially starts in Argentina for the MXGP series on the 9th/10th March.

Team Manager Shaun Simpson, said: “Hawkstone is always a great pre-season race and this year certainly didn’t disappoint! Probably one of the biggest crowds I’ve seen at Hawkstone in the last 20 years. It’s a great test for the riders and was nice for us to showcase our new paddock setup for our British fans and sponsors. Both Josh and Cas steadily got better as the day went on, the mechanics done a fantastic job with the tight schedule and it was nice for Cas to get his first podium of the season. We are gathering some momentum now and are looking forward to Lierop this weekend for Cas and Argentina in two weeks to start the MXGP championship with Josh.”

This Sunday (March 3) the Dutch motocross season will start at the Herselse Bossen circuit in Lierop. The field of racers is getting stronger and stronger and it promises to be a really high-level race.

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.
