MX2: Who impressed in Argentina?

The riders had the joy to ride a fantastic Argentina track, one of the best on the calendar without a doubt and it provided some great racing for the passionate Argentine fans. We take a look at the MX2 riders that impressed during the course of the weekend.

We are starting to see a far more mature Jeremy Seewer in 2016. Argentina marks his third podium in a row and he now moves into second in the World Championship standings. This is definitely the best we have seen Jeremy ride since he moved into the MX2 class. A bad start could have cost him in the first moto but starting in seventh, he was able to make some moves and end up in fourth which was a solid ride. In the second moto he started in fifth but worked his way into second and was able to hold off Tonkov to secure second in the moto.  A massive improvement from the Swiss rider, you can tell the hard work over winter is paying off and he will be motivated to stay second in the championship.

What a GP from Samuele Bernardini on the Italian TM.  Samuele isn’t blessed with natural talent but when he gets the start he isn’t scared to race at the front. Due to lack of experience at riding at the front he tends to drop back after twenty minutes or so but he keeps learning the speed every week. TM haven’t had too much success in the MX2 class but Samuele has been in great form and Argentine marks his most impressive GP ever securing fourth overall, not far away from the podium. The Italian is currently positioned seventh in the championship standings, TM might struggle keeping hold of him for the 2017 season if he keeps this kind of form up!

The change from Husqvarna to Standing Construct Yamaha seems to be doing Aleksandr Tonkov the world of good. He seems to be a lot more consistent and making less mistakes. Aleksandr has been dealing with a sickness so still isn’t 100% but he always gives it his all, a third overall in Argentina gives the Russian another impressive podium and moves him into third in the world championship. Overall, a good weekend for Tonkov, when he is 100% he could be the main guy behind Herlings in the class.

Bulgarian, Petar Petrov had terrible starts all weekend long that definitely cost him this weekend. Petar found himself buried down in eleventh and twelfth on the first lap of the moto’s – unless your Jeffrey Herlings you won’t podium in this class with starts like that. However, Petar rode well in both the moto’s to end up sixth and eighth for fifth overall.  From the positions he found himself in at the start of the races, fifth is definitely the best he could have achieved this weekend.

A shout out to Vsevolod Brylyakov who ended up sixth overall this weekend. After Valkenswaard he had some problems back home in Russia so had to fly back home and couldn’t train like he wanted. Sixth overall is an impressive ride and he will only get quicker on his Dixon Kawasaki – definitely a rider to watch out for as the season progresses.
