Monster Energy Factory Yamaha Jeremy Seewer shot to a podium victory this weekend at the opening round of the FIM World Motocross Championships in Great Britain.

Grabbing a third overall and the first podium finish of his career, the swiss rider treated the fans to an edge-of-your-seat battle right off the bat, starting inside the top-three and quickly mounted an attack on Jorge Prado to take the lead on lap two. 

After a thrilling display of raw speed and talent, the ‘91’ led eleven laps of fourteen in the opening moto but finished second after crashing out of the lead when he lost the front at the bottom of a high-speed descent.

“It was a really positive day.” said Seewer. “I’ve never started the season this far up front. I’ve never started the season on the podium, so it’s pretty good. It shows I’m ready. I enjoyed the racing.”

“The track was difficult but really nice, and the sun was super low, so it was quite tricky. I’m super happy, except for the first moto when I thought I had the win in the pocket, but I lost the front and then caught some ruts, and my legs weren’t long enough to save me. I am on the podium, I’m fit and I’m happy with everything and the team around me, so it’s all positive. I’m ready for more.”
