Buying a new bike can be an extremely exciting time, which then leads to us to think with our hearts rather than our heads.

An expert explains what you should watch out before completing a purchase in this new video from the 24MX Garage. Remember to save the link, as this will probably become useful time and time again in the future.

The JWR Report: MXoN

JWR Yamaha Racing were present in the pits at the 2019 Motocross of Nations this past weekend. It was a very eventful weekend, as Anton Gole represented Team Sweden and Vsevolod Brylyakov led Team Russia into action. The event was run in front of the 74,000 fans at the Assen TT Circuit in The Netherlands.

Vsevolod Brylyakov was extremely quick on the rugged sand circuit, but poor luck beset him and his Russian teammates. The riders consequently failed to qualify for the main races and had to watch from the sidelines on Sunday afternoon. Anton Gole had better luck, as a fifteenth in the Open qualifying heat helped Sweden transfer to the main races in eleventh. When Gole lined up for his first race on Sunday – a race that included MX2 and Open riders – conditions had deteriorated significantly. He still showed good speed en route to a twenty-third.

Anton Gole was having another incredible ride in the last race, as he was running in eighteenth in the mixed classification. The power-sapping conditions caused him to run out of fuel with just over a lap to go though and therefore he did not quite reach the chequered flag. Gole still secured eleventh in the individual Open classification and helped Team Sweden claim fourteenth in the final classification. Both of his finishes were counted in their final points haul.

The 2019 Motocross of Nations marked the end of an exciting term for the JWR Yamaha Racing squad. The Swedish team tackled the full FIM Motocross World Championship for the first time and plan to make more progress in 2020. The plans that the team have in place will be announced in due course.

The JWR Report: China

Buy a ProWorks Stand like JWR Yamaha Racing. Click here.

The 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship concluded over the weekend. The eighteenth and last round of the campaign was run on a purpose-built layout in Shanghai, China, that featured a sandy surface, which played to the strengths of JWR Yamaha Racing rider Kevin Strijbos. Strijbos was the sole representative for the JWR outfit on Chinese soil.

Qualifying was a positive exercise for Strijbos, who secured ninth and yet another top-ten ranking. The first points-paying moto on Sunday was then a turbulent affair. A fall early on in the moto left him with a painful shoulder and no choice but to pull out prematurely. In an effort to stay safe and not cause further damage, the decision was made to miss moto two and watch the spectacular Grand Prix of China from the sidelines. It was a crushing end to a consistent run of top-twelve finishes.

Kevin Strijbos will now focus on recovering ahead of the Motocross of Nations in two weeks, where he will represent Team Belgium in the power-sapping sand of Assen. Vsevolod Brylyakov will ride for Team Russia and Anton Gole will be on Team Sweden.

Kevin Strijbos: “I had a huge crash in the first moto and hurt my shoulder, so I did not start the second moto. I will stay positive, because in two weeks there will be the ‘Nations in Assen and we go all in with Team Belgium!”

Top Tips: Enduro Racing

Each discipline is unique – that is not breaking news though! There is a reason why most Grand Prix riders cannot just jump into a round of Monster Energy Supercross and immediately shine. It is a completely different ball game! The same goes for those in enduro – they are masters at their particular discipline and would struggle when chucked into a different environment. If you want to put effort into enduro though, how can you make sure that everything is perfect and you are set-up well? Following the steps outlined in this ’24MX Garage’ video is the first step! Learn how to set your bike up correctly below.
