Throwback Thursday Video: 1998 Everts v Tortelli
It’s back to the future for MXGP in 2015 when the French round of the series takes place at the legendary Villars Sous Ecot.
Back in 1998 Stefan Everts and Sebastian Tortelli and the rest battled for race victory in the 250cc class of the World Championship. This was the year Everts and Tortelli fought to the end in an epic title tussle with Tortelli claiming the World Championship in a nerve-jangling final moto after Everts crashed under the pressure.
At the time these two were the best two riders in the world with nothing to chose between them and now, 17 years later, Villopoto and Cairoli will go head to head at the same circuit in a championship that is catching the imagination of the public just like the battle between Everts and Tortelli did in 1998.
