Everts continues to win

1 of 1

Stefan Everts has continued his unbeaten run in this year’s world MX championship with two more wins at the British Grand Prix in Matterly Basin.

The Belgian rider admitted this was his toughest event so far after having to come back from a crash in the second race.

He crashed on the fifth lap but nine laps later he was back in the lead and kept it to the flag.

“I hit a rock with my frame, the back wheel came out of the rut and I slid out. Josh passed me immediately but I was aggressive and got him back quickly. I was chasing Tanel but I was having a hard time around the first part of the track because it was so fast and the roosts coming up from all the dust made it difficult to see the lines.

“I made my way through one by one and then pushed quite hard to have a small gap after a few laps. I managed to bring my Yamaha to the chequered flag first and again I am very happy. After the small crash it made a good show for the fans and I was pleased with how I could still take the race.”
