Signing off on their 2015 racing season by representing their respective national teams, Husqvarna Motorcycles’ factory backed MXGP racers Max Nagl and Todd Waters officially brought their 2015 seasons to an end at the FIM Motocross of Nations at Ernee, France.
Husqvarna Motorcycles’ participation in the 2015 FIM World Motocross Championship drew to a close over the weekend as the historical hills of Glen Helen Raceway played host to the final round of the MXGP series.
A championship that during the first nine rounds delivered so much for Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl, the season closing GP of USA frustratingly ended with little reward for the German. Forced to retire from the opening moto, a crash damaged bike then forced Nagl out of the second moto.
Despite challenging track conditions Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl delivered a strong performance at the MXGP of Leon, climbing up to fifth position in the championship standings with one race remaining.
In only his second event back racing following injury Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl rounded out the GP of The Netherlands with a highly positive sixth overall MXGP class result.
Around the short, challenging and sandy track built inside the historical circuit of Assen, Nagl delivered two strong performances on his FC 450. With the circuit’s grandstands packed with spectators the German stormed out of the gate in the first MXGP moto to claim the holeshot and lead the race during the opening laps.
