Swiss Seewer postpones Tim Gajser title

The Swiss Jeremy Seewer (Yamaha) has won his third victory of the year in Uddevalla with the GP of Sweden in the World Motocross World Championship on Sunday. It was the 15th of 18 GPs this season.

Seewer finished second in the first moto and crossed the line first in the second, taking the GP away from Tim Gajser (Honda), who himself finished fourth and second respectively. In this way, the Slovenian leader will have to exercise some patience to become world champion for the fifth time, including a fourth time in the MXGP.

Gajser has another 115 points bonus on Seewer, while a GP gives a maximum of 50 points. With the GP of Finland (August 14 in Hyvinkää), the GP of France (August 21 in St-Jean d’Angely) and the GP of Turkey (September 4 in Afyonkarahisar) there are three more GPs on the menu.

On the Belgian side, Brent van Doninck (Yamaha) was good for seventh place in the final result of the GP. Jeremy Van Horebeek (Beta) posted a thirteenth position. Van Horebeek occupies eleventh place in the World Cup standings with 254 points. van Doninck follows in thirteenth place with 206 units.
