Video: First look – Maxime Renaux on the 450cc
Maxime Renaux made a big decision to move up to the MXGP World Championship in 2022 after clinching the MX2 world title this year in what was an amazing year for the French talent.
“For sure, I would say that the easiest way and the more secure way would be stay in MX2 because I know I can win and fight for the title, it was the easy way, let’s say. My real objective is become a World champion in MXGP so I need to make that step and I need to already start to get into the class and see what I can do to prepare for the future. My long term goal is definitely to be world champion in MXGP. For me this was the best choice to step up with a world title, with confidence and a great team waiting for me. Everything was set together to really make a good and smart move. This is what we did signing for two years and I don’t have any pressure, I can just have two years to enjoy and build, that’s what we’ll try to do in those two years in order to try and get to the front”, Renaux told GateDrop.com.
