Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP 2021
Ben Watson enters Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP as a product of the Yamaha family, having raced and enjoyed success with Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2 across the last three seasons. Watson, the strongest rider that Britain has to offer currently, won two of the last four MX2 Grands Prix in the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship. Watson claimed six podium finishes during his last year in MX2 too, taking his career total to eight. The potential is clear for all to see.
Watson will spend the winter getting accustomed to the YZ450FM, before making his debut in the premier class in the 2021 FIM World Championship. Jumping into the premier class could be daunting for some, but a lot of guys (like Glenn Coldenhoff and Jeremy Seewer) have experienced immediate success on the bigger bike and Watson has looked forward to the challenge for a very long time.
Glenn Coldenhoff is arguably one of the brightest stars in motocross at the moment, having dominated at the last two editions of the Motocross of Nations. Coldenhoff is jumping from strength-to-strength, despite being in the latter stages of his career now, and recently won the Latvian Grand Prix. That pushed his career total to five. The 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship is where he had the most success, as he claimed two overall wins and eventually finished third in the final standings (just behind Jeremy Seewer).
Coldenhoff will pilot a YZ450FM for the first time in the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship and start preparing with Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP as soon as he has recovered from a back injury that was sustained in October. Coldenhoff has his sights set on fighting for a maiden world title with the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team.
Jeremy Seewer continues to record an impressive list of statistics with each year that passes, as he grabbed his fourth silver medal at the end of the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship. It was truly a season of milestones, despite the fact that he had the same ranking as the previous term, as he picked up his maiden overall win in the premier division and scored three moto victories across the year as well. Additionally, he made six trips up onto the overall podium.
Seewer will continue to chase a world title with the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team next year, a goal that is certainly within reach. Consistency is one of his greatest strengths – he has not missed a Grand Prix since becoming a professional in 2014. Seewer has lined up at 128 Grands Prix in succession! The 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship will mark his fourth year on the YZ450FM.
