Anstie in for Hawkstone Park

HIMX have signed up the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MXGP team for the forthcoming Be Wiser Hawkstone International on the 5th February 2017. Third in the world in 2016, Max Nagl will lead the team which also consists of Gautier Paulin and top Brit Max Anstie.

Max Nagl finished third place in the 2016 World MX GP standings and will be eager to have a strong start to the 2017 campaign. His new team-mate Gautier Paulin was forced to miss five rounds of the Championship this year due to injury but was strong at the end of the season and helped France take another win in the MX of Nations in Italy at the end of September.

Stepping up to the main MX1 class this year on the Husqvarna 450 will be likeable and popular Brit, Max Anstie. Max had a fantastic year in 2016 in the MX2 class finishing in fourth place overall.

Max Anstie – “I am really looking forward to racing at the Be Wiser International at Hawkstone Park again. I love riding at home and it is a fantastic track. I’m feeling good so far with testing and have done a bit of riding on the 450. Things are positive and I can’t wait to get going with the season now.”
