Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP
Eighteen rounds, sixteen countries and many trophies. The 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship is in the rear-view mirror and the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP squad can look back on the campaign with a smile. It was truly a year to remember for all in the ‘blue’ corner.
Jeremy Seewer was simply brilliant on his YZ450FM. Amassing three overall victories, five moto wins and a whopping nine podium finishes is a brilliant record. Gathering pace from the halfway point of the term, he entered many Grands Prix as the clear favourite and thrived in such a position. Yet another silver medal in the championship standings was the reward (the fifth of his career and his third with Yamaha) and, crucially, he enters the off-season with some valuable momentum. Combine that with the all-new YZ450FM and the popular Swiss star is going to be a force to be reckoned with when the new season begins.
It’s known what Seewer is capable but his teammate, Maxime Renaux, was more of a question mark before the campaign roared into life. Racing in the premier class for the very first time, an almighty challenge that many have struggled with, he thrived aboard the YZ450FM and was an immediate contender. Claiming pole position in his first event was just brilliant and then he climbed onto the podium at the very next race – his progress was rapid. Sadly, an injury at the halfway mark stopped him from grabbing a championship medal. One would think that it will not be too long before he takes gold, silver or bronze though…
The third rider beneath the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP tent, Glenn Coldenhoff, also took a leap forward over the last six months. Looking comfortable in ‘blue’ from the very start of the season, he charged to six podiums and one Grand Prix victory over the eighteen-round campaign. That sole win was a poignant moment, as it occurred at the Grand Prix of Finland when Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP swept all three steps of the premier-class podium. Such a memory will live on forever.
Seven pole positions, twenty-two podium finishes, five overall victories and fourteen moto wins. Those are the incredible numbers that the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP trio amassed during the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship. In addition to that, Yamaha took first in the manufacturer standings too! It was an incredible term, but there’s more work to do and the same three stars will be back for more when gates drop on the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship.
