Monster Yamaha’s Ben Watson grabbed a solid eleventh overall after some decent battles at the tricky Teutschenthal MXGP circuit.

After getting his first ever MXGP class overall win at the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations one week ago, Watson came into the German Grand Prix confident and keen to keep his momentum high.

The tall Brit showed good speed as he got off to a good start and put in some consistently fast laps to finish thirteenth in the first race, and a tenth in the second moto giving him eleventh overall for the weekend.


“A pretty positive day,’ said Watson.

“I didn’t feel like I was ‘wow,’ but I was solid and consistent and definitely making progress. I know I need to change ASAP when it comes to qualifying because where I need to start, I am too far out on the gate, making it difficult to get a good start.

“I kind of finished where I gated, it was a little bit ‘follow the leader’ in both races, but still a solid result and I am pleased with that.”
