Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP
Louis Vosters and the Wilvo crew have come a long way in the last five years, a relatively short amount of time. After entering the premier MXGP division with Shaun Simpson and Arnaud Tonus, Vosters stood atop the Grand Prix podium as the winning team manager in just his second attempt. A burning desire to succeed was fuelled by that and eventually, at the conclusion of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship, the squad transformed into Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP.
The 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship was a turbulent one for the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP squad, but one that laid the foundation for future success underneath the ‘blue’ awning. There were struggles along the way, like illnesses and teething problems, but those ultimately made the highs so much sweeter. Jeremy Seewer and Glenn Coldenhoff return for the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship, a campaign that appears to be rather promising for the duo, and will be joined by a current world champion, Maxime Renaux.
Illness is what Jeremy Seewer will recall when reflecting on the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship. The health problems meant that he faced an uphill climb through the first half of the season, but moments like those made his character and drive much more prominent. Seewer proved that he would do everything in his power to reach the top and overcome obstacles, something that he did at the Grand Prix of Garda in October. Seewer added to his tally of Grand Prix wins with a phenomenal ride and served notice that he is going to be a force to be reckoned with in 2022 – he rebounded to end up fourth in the points.
The same sentiment could be applied to his YZ450FM teammate, Glenn Coldenhoff, who had some podium success in his first season in ‘blue’ surroundings. Coldenhoff led laps at different points throughout the year and stood on the box at Maggiora and Pietramurata. Coldenhoff made himself a part of the Yamaha family and will continue to build on the base that he established in the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship. The end result that he secured in the standings was seventh – the future is bright and rather blue for #259! Watch this space.
Maxime Renaux is a very exciting addition to the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team for the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship. The Vosters-run outfit always has an eye on the future, thus nurturing the raw talent that Renaux possesses is a priority in the immediate future. The world title that he managed to secure just last season serves as proof of how far he can go in the premier category – we cannot wait to watch his career progress. Renaux already has six Grand Prix victories to his name, to accompany that title.
Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP are excited to tackle the highs and lows of motocross with the trio, starting with the Grand Prix of Great Britain in February. Join us on what will be an exciting journey!
