Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP sweep Finland Created: 2022-08-15

The Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team is buoyant at the moment, thanks to the success that has been experienced in recent weeks. The ‘blue’ team had another opportunity to chase trophies earlier today – round sixteen of the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship was run at the sandy track of Hyvinkää in Finland. The event will forever hold a special place in the team’s heart.

Climbing onto the top step of the podium as a Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP rider for the first time was a sweet moment for Coldenhoff, who has delivered many podiums to the team this season. The way that he performed in moto one was very impressive; he moved from fifth to second with conviction. It turns out that was just a sign of things to come though, as he ripped a brilliant start in moto two and led every lap en route to the moto victory. Not only did 2-1 scores put him in first overall, but such a result also helped him move into third in the championship standings as well.

The Grand Prix of Finland was yet another positive day for Jeremy Seewer, who has amassed more points than anyone else across the last two months. Seewer was a strong fourth in the opening moto, after an untimely error caused him to fall from third, and then backed that up by chasing his teammate across the line in the second moto. 4-2 scores were more than enough for second overall at the Grand Prix and helped him tighten his grip on the same ranking in the championship standings. ’91’ is on track to take another silver medal when the series draws to a close.

Completing the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP sweep of the premier-class podium, Maxime Renaux enjoyed an extremely consistent day aboard his YZ450FM. Renaux was involved in a furious battle for third place in moto one and excelled, as he secured the result when the chequered flag waved. The same ranking was claimed in the second moto after another valiant effort – he climbed up from seventh on a track that most riders struggled to pass on. 3-3 scores put him in third overall on the day, alongside his teammates.

There is absolutely no time to rest for the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team, as the penultimate round of the current campaign will be run at the historic track of St. Jean d’Angely on August 21. The Grand Prix of Charente Maritime’s going to be particularly enjoyable for Maxime Renaux – it’ll be his second home race of the season.

Glenn Coldenhoff: “It was a good weekend. I have waited way too long for this. I have always believed in myself, and I know I am capable of being here and doing this. I am just really happy. This is my first win with the Yamaha as well, and it’s really nice to pay them back with this victory. They have put in big effort to help me get here, and in the last few weeks it has really paid off. Now, I am celebrating with my teammates! Does it get any better?”

Jeremy Seewer: “I am in good form at the moment. Everything is clicking, even today on this track, which was not my favourite. I’ve had three GP wins now but because this was not my type of track, I achieved my goal of two solid motos with no big mistakes. Two GPs to go, so the season is not finished. I know that I am in good form and there is still some good racing ahead at some really nice tracks, so I look forward to it.”

Maxime Renaux: “It was a really nice day for Yamaha. We made history today, with it being the first time we had three Yamaha riders on the podium in the MXGP class. Today, the result with two third-place finishes is really good. I still want to go for more. I believe I can still fight for the championship podium. Glenn just took over third, so there will be some interesting races coming up and we will all fight hard for it.”
