Overnight storms made the conditions extremely tough and technical at the circuit of Leon for the 2015 MXGP of Leon, the penultimate round of the FIM Motocross World Championship. The saturated dirt became very thick and sticky, which kept the riders on their toes as they were faced with the challenge of riding fast but smart.

Consistency wasn't a problem for Yamaha Factory Racing Yamalube's Romain Febvre who waxed everyone today for a perfect fifty point score, his fourth this season. Meanwhile, Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team's Thomas Covington was the breakout star in MX2 after hitting two milestones with his first ever race win and MX2 grand prix overall.

It was business as usual for Yamaha Factory Racing Yamalube's Romain Febvre who upped his stats to fourteen race wins, twelve consecutive podiums, of which seven have been grand prix overalls. The 2015 FIM Motocross World Champion made it look far too easy when he won the first race with an even bigger gap than the one Ryan Villopoto pulled in the Qualifying Race in Thailand, 45 seconds to RV's 33."It's never easy but this one was really good, I enjoyed the track. This morning it was really muddy but the second race the track was perfect and I had a lot of fun."

What better way to head into your home grand prix than as the most recent round winner? Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team's Thomas Covington hit a couple of milestones and proved just how versatile he is with a solid ride in race one for fourth, which he followed up with his first ever race win in race two and overall victory. "I am beyond stoked. I didn't even know I had the overall win until I walked up to the podium and I had to ask where I should stand. It is an amazing feeling."
