Jeremy Seewer’s early season struggles explained

Jeremy Seewer didn’t have the start of season many would have expected but the past two MXGP rounds at Oss and Loket have gone much better. The Factory Yamaha rider got back on the podium at Loket going 5-2 in the moto’s to secure third overall.

Despite a difficult start to the season the Factory Yamaha rider has worked his way up to fifth in the championship standings and has explained his struggles at the start of the season. The Swiss rider tested positive for COVID-19 in the off-season and was just about able to race in Russia!

“The start to my season wasn’t at all what I expected, just before we started, I was in good shape and stuff but I tested positive for COVID, so it was tight for Russia to make it and that explains my results. But I am happy to be back, I started to feel better already but last weekend was just a bit off, in the start of the second race, luckily, I wasn’t hurt as a few riders ran me over which is fine. I’m really happy to be back on the podium, especially that second race, good start and made a key pass on Jorge, I just used his small mistake to catch him and rode to second without a problem. Lommel is like a home GP for us all, as most of the GP riders live around there, so I’m looking forward to that, it always gets rough and it’s exciting to race there”, Seewer said in the press conference after the Czech GP.
