Jeremy Seewer was looking more like his usual self in France at the weekend which was great to see and finished what looked like 4-4 on the day.

However, after the second moto, he was one of the riders that got docked due to not respecting waved yellow flags. The other rider affected was Kevin Horgmo but with both riders getting docked two positions it moved Tim Gajser up to fourth which give him the overall MXGP win and not Romain Febvre.

Seewer has posted a message on social media and understandably isn’t happy with the decision considering the conditions and where the flagger was standing in behind banners. Not only that, but there were also three more riders that jumped but escaped a penalty.

The Swiss talent posted the following message on social media:

“Not sure but I think the video and picture (see at the bottom of this article) explains itself. I got dropped 2 positions by FIM because of this incident. There is NO CHANCE to see this marshal because he is behind the banners plus the big puddle before makes you nearly blind and I had to put my head down as you see on the photo”.

“Okay rules are rules and FIM told me there is zero tolerance. But why only 2 out of the 5 riders who jumped got the penalty? FIM LIVE?”

“If you let us race in those conditions you have to be ready to deal with the consequences! And decisions like this are NOT acceptable for a world championship. What is your opinion?”
