2015 MXGP Of Latvia | Race Highlights

Round twelve of the FIM Motocross World Championship was a test of versatility today with temperamental weather and fickle track conditions playing a huge part in the overall results. The day was a battle against the elements but as it turns out it may have been the combination of rain, sunshine and great soil in Kegums that encouraged the blooming of Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe’s Glenn Coldenhoff and Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki’s Max Anstie.

A new generation of future legends is starting to emerge. Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe’s Glenn Coldenhoff hit a huge milestone today in Kegums when he claimed his first two Fox Holeshots of the season and his first race win, which he combined with a second place finish for his first ever MXGP overall. Amazingly, the kid known asThe Hoff is the first MXGP round winner for Suzuki this year despite the brand tenting two of the most distinguished riders in MXGP, Kevin Strijbos and Clement Desalle.

This weekend was a testament to Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki rider Max Anstie’s ability to ride sand. Anstie grew up racing in the renowned sand of The Netherlands and has always claimed he is one of the best sand riders in the world although he openly admitted that had Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings been on the line this weekend, it wouldn’t have been easy to achieve what he did, “Jeffrey is an amazing rider, he is not the world champion for nothing,” the Brit said. At the end of the day, Herlings was not on the line this weekend and it was Anstie who stepped up to the plate and creamed everyone in all three races, qualifying and both main events for his first overall grand prix win of the season.
