Jeremy Seewer put his Suzuki RM-Z250 on the podium once again after his two-three moto scores at the MXGP of France, in Ernee. He grabbed good starts and put pressure on the leaders in both his motos and leaves the hillside track with third overall.

Team mate Hunter Lawrence also backed up his second overall in Germany with a fourth overall here, which could have been even better had his gear shifter not snapped off in one of the deep ruts that littered the track. Still, he brought the bike home safely for fifth place, which he then backed up with a solid fourth in the second moto. Bas Vaessen also put in his best moto score of the season with a 10th place in the second moto, after a rock destroyed his chain in the first one when he was running in a good position.

Seewer had this to say about his third-place performance: “Two good races for the championship, I did what I had to do more or less. I would have loved to have got a couple more points, especially in that first moto when I struggled a little with some mistakes that cost me the ability to pass Pauls Jonass. Then I had to fight with Benoit Paturel the rest of the race because of that. I didn’t feel perfect, but I had good starts on my RM-Z250 and that was important on this track. I was really going for the holeshot in that second moto but Paturel came in hot in that first turn so I had to slow a bit or we both would have crashed. I got into third quickly and then it was just a drag race to the finish, we pulled away so far from the rest of the field. All three of us gave all we had and there really just wasn’t a spot on the track to make a pass as we were all so evenly matched. The season is still long, we lost a few points but we won’t give up and keep fighting until the end.”
