For the 7th round of the World Championship held in Agueda, Portugal, the british Max ANSTIE of the Honda Gariboldi-Esta team on his performant CRF250R showed that he has the speed and the ability to stay regularly with the top 3 of the MX2 championship riding an impressive second moto where he started 7th and could pass all riders in front of him and finish 3rd behind Herlings and Searle for an overall 4th of the Grand Prix, his best so far this season. Anstie is now a solid fifth in the championship overall and is closing the gap with fourth Joel Roelants.
Another convincing performance by the strong british Max ANSTIE in the Grand Prix of Brazil under testing conditions due to the heavy rain falled all night on the circuit. Anstie with a 4th and a 7th place in the two motos was able to take the 6th overall of the GP and consolidated his 5th place in the World Championship MX2 after five events.
In the fourth round of the Motocross World Championship in Guadalajara, Mexico, the british Max ANSTIE faced a rough weekend of racing, with dust problems on the saturday which have prevented the majority of the riders to race in the qualifying heat and with some engine settings due to the altitude which couldn’t allow a perfect tuning of his CRF for the races on the Sunday. However Anstie could finish 8th and 9th of the two motos where he tried to avoid mistakes and bring home as many points as possible with twelve Grand Prix still to be raced this season.
