More Grand Prix trophies as Red Bull KTM push through the rain in France

More water, mud and challenging circumstances in 2024 MXGP but Red Bull KTM Factory Racing emerged from the Grand Prix of France with podium appearances in both MXGP and MX2 classes thanks to Jeffrey Herlings and Andrea Adamo both classifying 3rd at St Jean D’Angely.

  • MXGP silverware for the second week in succession for Jeffrey Herlings as the Dutchman goes 6-1 in France to classify 2nd but is then bumped to 3rd overall due to rider penalizations affecting the second moto standings
  • Andrea Adamo takes his third MX2 podium finish of the season and his second in a row to rise to 5th in the world championship standings
  • Liam Everts keeps consistent with a top five overall result and maintains a solid point haul to guard his 2024 title options
  • 11th place and more holeshot glory for Sacha Coenen while Gyan Doensen takes 4th for the fifth round of the 2024 EMX125 European Championship with the KTM 125 SX. Cas Valk was 3rd in the fourth outing of the year for EMX250
  • After trips to Portugal, Spain and France in consecutive weekends, MXGP now breaks before heading into another triple header in Germany, Latvia and Italy starting the first weekend of June
MXGP again ran the gauntlet with changeable weather conditions at the popular hard-packed St Jean D’Angely circuit in western France for round seven of the campaign and the third weekend of action on the bounce. The venue is one of the principal sites for Grand Prix racing in the country and has twice hosted the prestigious Motocross of Nations this century. The slick and stony course welcomed a typically large and boisterous crowd but the instability of the climate – summed up by sunshine and then thundery showers through practice and qualification on Saturday – soaked the track and made it muddy, rutty and hard to judge.
Liam Everts used his sensitive feeling with the terrain to capture 2nd place in the MX2 RAM Qualification with teammate Andrea Adamo in 5th and Sacha Coenen towards the rear of the gate after a couple of errors across the difficult soil counted against him. Everts was later judged to have jumped while yellow flags were waving and was bumped to 4th. Jeffrey Herlings was 10th in the MXGP affair on Saturday.
