More To Come From Suzuki World Mxgp After Qatar

Kevin Strijbos – (11-12) for 11th

It’s been a whirlwind February for the Suzuki World MXGP team, with the launch of the new RM-Z450WS at the beginning of the month at the headquarters in Lommel, Belgium and then ending it here in Qatar at the first round of the 2017 World Championships.

In between were trips to Hawkstone Park in England and Lacapelle in France and while things have been hectic, positive steps have been taken throughout this period.

Kevin Strijbos put in good times in practice and timed practice and showed speed all throughout the weekend, he just wasn’t able to do it at the front of the field after bad starts dashed any hopes for a top-five position. His 11-12 results were only good enough for 11th overall and although he obviously wanted to be higher, the fact that the tricky Qatar track was so difficult to pass on meant that higher finishes just weren’t realistic unless you got good starts.

The Belgian rider had this to say about his two races: “First race I got a good start but ran wide and Anstie also ran wide and went off the track. I just about saved it but lost a lot of positions. My riding though, I just couldn’t push, I didn’t have any energy or anything. I don’t know what was wrong. It was better in the second moto as again I got a good jump off the metal mesh but then they moved past me when we got on the soil and I couldn’t make it up.
