<![CDATA[Rockstar Energy Suzuki Sweep Podium]]> http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/rockstar-energy-suzuki-sweep-podium

Team Suzuki Press Office – February 9.

Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Kevin Strijbos, Clement Desalle and Glenn Coldenhoff swept the podium in their first International race of the season at the Hawkstone Park International Motocross in the UK on Sunday.

The 2015 Factory RM-Zs dominated practice, qualifying and all three races; World MXGP number three Strijbos winning the two main races, plus the Superfinal as Desalle raced-to runner-up slot in each. MXGP class rookie Coldenhoff also impressed with a 4-3-5 result in his first international debut aboard the Factory RM-Z450 after moving-up from the MX2 class.

The Suzuki International Europe-supported rider was the fastest rider out of the gate in both motos - taking the holeshot - and he continued to lead for several laps until arm-pump forced him to slow, but fourth and third positions rewarded him third overall on the podium in his first-ever international outing on the powerful Suzuki RM-Z450.

Kevin Strijbos:

“I went to the race without expecting too much as I had been a bit sick the last week and didn’t ride much in the sand after I got back from training in the US. It was always a bit difficult in the beginning of the races, but I gained momentum as the races went on and this turned out good. I’m stoked for the team to have such a good start to the season and I’m looking forward to the next races!”

Clement Desalle:

“It was a good day; a bit cold in the morning but good in the afternoon. I’m not such a big fan of the start on the concrete at Hawkstone, but still did ok in the race with three second-places. Strijbos was pretty-strong in the sand here, but I didn’t lose too-much time there either. The racing was good - and there were no crashes - so it’s been a good training race!”

Glenn Coldenhoff:

“I got good starts in the races, but went-in a bit-too aggressive. The consequences were that I almost immediately got arm-pump, that didn’t really go away in any of the heats. I had to slow down, but still had a good finish. In the Superfinal I had a bad start when someone took my line, but like (Shaun) Simpson I rode through the pack and put-in great effort in the last two laps and managed to pass him. So all-in-all, I’m quite happy with the result!”

<![CDATA[Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Hangtown MX Race Report]]> http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/rockstar-energy-husqvarna-hangtown-mx-race-report
In previous years Anderson has been more comfortable racing on Supercross tracks than he was outdoors. This was in large part to his size. Being bigger than almost everyone else in the 250 class poses an immediate disadvantage on the mx tracks with large, horsepower robbing uphills and deep, foot peg dragging ruts. For the first time, Jason was extremely eager to go outside and play his hand on the bigger bike. It was pretty clear after one round that his starts will be better on the 450 which isn't necessarily a surprise, but he appeared more comfortable throughout the entire day. JA was also one of very few riders to hit the massive Fly 150 jump in both motos. At the end of the day he finished 3rd overall in his debut. A stellar start to his 2015 MX campaign.

Jason Anderson: "My weekend was good. Had a good first moto with a 3rd then the 2nd moto I felt pretty good but my arms got tired a little bit. Still got the podium though which was really cool. My first outdoor on the 450 so I'm pretty happy about that. This is one of the roughest tracks of the year but you just gotta go out there and get through it and be on the box."

Christophe Pourcel had a commendable return to racing and should hold his head high going into round 2 with a lot to build off of. Pourcel dabbled a bit in the 450 class in US motocross a few years ago, but this marks his first real opportunity for success in the premiere class after signing just a few short weeks ago with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing. Christophe was probably the biggest question mark entering the series. As expected, he posted some fast qualifying times in practice but the real mystery was how well he'd do when the gate dropped. In the first moto he motored on to a very solid 5th place finish. His second outing did not go as well but it was good enough to secure 8th overall. After nearly a year completely away from racing, that is quite a good start considering the level of competition he's joining. The near future looks bright for CP and the team.

Christophe Pourcel: "Today was ok, it was my first race back so it's tough after not being out there for so long. My speed was there for a top 5. Top 10 is the goal for Bobby [Hewitt] and myself for the first few races. We got that today but we're still trying to get me more comfortable with the team and the bike. I think after few races we will have a pretty good setup. I got bad starts this weekend and rode a little tight in the second moto so it could have been a lot better but I don't wanna just go out and crash in the first race either.  Everything is new but the team has been amazing and really nice working with me so we will get everything worked out. I can only get better now and keep working on my fitness which is much better already than it was last year. I just need to fix some things, rebound next weekend and try to be in the top 5."

Zach Osborne's first moto was kind of wash. One he would like to go back and do again. However; his second moto was one of the more impressive rides of the weekend. The track appeared to have more lines and options than a rider could ever hope for but passing did not seem to be a common occurrence. For the majority of the day in the 250 class it was like a freight train as everyone just played follow the leader. It was evident that the fast lines were simply too much of an advantage over the alternate ones. In Zach's second time out, he managed to solve the problem and actually move forward. He started quite a ways back but consistently picked off position after position all the way up to 5th. If he had one more lap, it would not have been shocking for him to move into a podium position as he was all over the two guys in front of him.

Zach Osborne: "The first moto was not very good today at all for the situation I'm in. I got a bad start, pumped up and fell. It was pretty much a complete disaster honestly. Really not what I was looking for considering how hard I've been training. I felt like I was on par for a podium. I turned it around in the second moto. I had a decent start, not great but I was able to work my way up to 5th right behind 4th and 3rd. I can definitely take some positives from the second moto. I got my bike setup much better than it was in the first and now I can carry a little bit of momentum from that into Glen Helen."

Zach Bell was another guy who was making passes but unfortunately they were further back in the pack. Normally a consistently good starter, he just didn't nail them down at Hangtown. Zach is still not quite 100% after his practice crash before returning at Vegas Supercross though so the good news is that he will enter round two healthy and stronger than he was this past weekend. Bell's starts will certainly be better on the very long straightaway at Glen Helen and the odds are that his overall day will improve vastly as well.

Zach Bell: "The day started off good with 5th in first practice, second practice just couldn't get a clear lap in. First Moto I got a horrible start and worked my way up to 13 and had a bad crash on the last lap. 2nd Moto got a decent start and the second turn I got cleaned out and ran over and was dead last and came back to 19th. It was a rough day but I'm still healthy so we will move on to the next!"

Next weekend the series moves to Glen Helen and the last race of the year in California. Anderson rides well at the San Bernardino track and will try to start a podium streak. Pourcel will continue to improve and look to work his way into a top 5 overall. Osborne will not be satisfied unless he gets on the podium which he is fully capable of. Bell has nowhere to go but up as he gets closer to being back to full health and starting much closer to the front of the pack.]]>

<![CDATA[Milestone First Podium for Seewer at Argentina MX2]]> http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/milestone-first-podium-for-seewer-at-argentina-mx2
The Grand Prix of Argentina throbbed and heaved with 30,000 spectators excitedly packed into the confines of the new racing circuit near Villa La Angostura and Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe’s Jeremy Seewer scored a memorable third position overall in the MX2 class for what was the third round of 18 in the 2015 FIM Motocross World Championship.

In just his second GP season, and first as a full-time professional, Seewer took the RM-Z250 to fifth position in both today’s motos to walk the final step of the podium and spray GP champagne for the first time. Team-mate Glenn Coldenhoff made good progress on his RM-Z450 in the MXGP category with 10th overall and a season-best classification of eighth in the second race.

Dark, sandy volcanic earth provided a difficult test at the freshly-built track. While the layout was quick and jumpy, the ground was a mix of shifting bumps and a solid base that meant traction varied. The course was hard to judge through the various sections but the facility was undoubtedly world championship-class and fans lined the fences and packed into the enclosures that flanked the corners for the best view.

Seewer was on the pace of the top-five in MX2 from Saturday and ran to a solid sixth position in the qualification heat. Adapting to the irregular ground but enjoying a course that provided line choice and passing opportunities, the Swiss chased Julien Lieber for most of the first moto on Sunday and equalled his best GP finish with fifth place by the time of the chequered flag. In the second race he was set for a top-four result after trailing eventual winner Dylan Ferrandis for many laps but just could not withhold the challenge from Tim Gajser in the final two circulations and again ranked fifth. The points’ tally of 32 from both sprints was enough for Seewer and the team to start celebrating. After his disappointment with illness and heat exhaustion in Thailand three weeks ago this was a positive re-entry to the upper section of the standings for ‘#91’.

Glenn Coldenhoff is almost back to full fitness after recovering from his broken toes – an injury he re-aggravated in Thailand – and drilled the RM-Z450 to a scorecard of 14-8 in only his third MXGP event. The premier class rookie needed the first moto to get in sync with the bumps and demands of the Neuquen terrain but was much more positive and reactive in the second race and benefitted from a brighter first lap nearer the head of the pack. The former MX2 Grand Prix winner circulated with Romain Febvre and then with Gautier Paulin and his eighth place was a smile-inducing forward step in his MXGP class education.

Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe will next be on international duty at Arco di Trento in northern Italy on April 18-19th for the Grand Prix of Trentino.

Jeremy Seewer:

“This is not such a big surprise to me because I have worked my whole life to be at the top of this sport. I knew at the beginning of the season that my speed is good, but I just had some bad luck in Thailand. I put that event ‘into the past’ and focused on my practice…and now I am on the podium. It is an amazing feeling to be up here for the first time. I did two solid races and two fifth positions are not normally enough for the podium, but on tracks like this it is important to be consistent and not make mistakes because a few guys had some big crashes here today.”

Glenn Coldenhoff:

“I feel quite good about today. I was actually struggling a little bit in the first moto with not such a great start. I rode to 10th place, but I was way too tight and got tired in my shoulders. I had to slow down a little bit and finished 14th. I had a good jump out of the gate in the second moto but shifted a little too early. I think it could have been a holeshot otherwise. I was really happy with my riding. The track got rougher and the speed dropped and this was better for me. The track wasn’t really sandy: It was just rough! The bottom was hard and there were a lot of ‘kickers’ on the jumps. I was consistent in the second moto and I’m happy with my eighth place.”
