Determined to get his 2023 MXGP campaign back on track, Seewer showcased his true potential as he battled fiercely with MXGP title contenders Jeffrey Herlings and Jorge Prado in Race One. The '91' rider skillfully powered his YZ450FM to an incredible holeshot and led the first 13 laps but was shuffled back to third before regaining a position from Herlings, who went over the 'bars on lap-15.
The challenging Teutschenthal circuit, notorious for its rough and rutted terrain, made overtaking difficult. Seewer finished second, just 2 seconds behind championship leader Prado, while Coldenhoff pushed hard from outside the top five to secure a hard-fought fourth place.
Feeling confident after a strong showing in Race One, Coldenhoff returned even stronger in Race Two. He pulled an incredible holeshot and flawlessly led the first 15 laps of the 18-lap race. Despite a valiant effort, the Dutchman made a costly mistake with three laps to go and ultimately finished second, which was enough to secure second overall.
Simultaneously, Seewer showcased his immense speed and determination as he charged from last position to an impressive fifth-place finish after falling at turn two. The Swiss rider had to switch from his race bike to his spare bike after the sighting lap due to an extremely rare rear shock issue, making his performance even more remarkable.
After a strong showing at the German Grand Prix, Seewer and Coldenhoff remain fifth and sixth in the Championship Standings and now look forward to the next round of the FIM Motocross World Championship, which will take place in Samota-Sumbawa, Indonesia, on June 24th and 25th.
