News Friday 01st November 2012 By Agnis Skrebs
We are still searching the best model, so every season is a bit different and there is something special in each. We are experimenting a lot, and our experiments are supported by the team bosses, it makes the job easier. The basic tendency – everything becomes more professional, more serious, and resources start to flow in, which is good news for all motocross community.
This season it developed so that vigour of youth gained an advantage upon experience and tactics. Lauris was let down by the falls in Valmiera stage – if not the falls, we can only guess, how it would be. But I know for a certainty that Lauris still has his powder dry and he is still yearning for victories, so we are waiting the next season, when the curtain drops. Nothing is resolved yet.
We are stillliving in the memories of Saldus stage, where 6 participants of the World Championship took part. Commentary is unnecessary. It is a very great value, especially for young strivers of Pro class.
The aim of Maecenas prize isto popularize motocross through the prism of every one athlete. Popularizing himself the athlete implicitly popularizes motocross in general. As a platform the Supercup races were chosen. The activities took place, but not to such an extent that Maecenas had desired. May be it was not enough explained, may be 4000 euro is too little sum for to motivate the athletes to perform, may be there was just lack of time or knowledge and they were embarrassed to ask advice.
This year the teams have thought very much about their design and activities, so special moments were everywhereJ There was a possibility to win a scooter from the company Vilders, to carry off valuable equipment in Bosch sideshows, to obtain different gifts in Herbalife run, a possibility to be photographed with cheerleaders and to get Battery energy portion for all the day, in MX Ranch stage – to watch backflips of the crazy Alex and Gabi, to take part and win money prizes in Safe Grand Whip competitions, as well as take part in different activities and competitions outside the trace.
Our aim isinvariable – we want to assemble 5000 spectators in the stage and we’ll do it, it is only the issue of time. In Saldus stage we were very close to it.
We have already startedthe negotiations with the teams of neighboring countries, the time will show, if these negotiations will be crowned by some touchable result. We will work at the content of the serial for the teams of neighboring countries will have an interest to take part here. The biggest changes in the next season will concern the Pro class. They will have three runs.
This titledidn’t come easy, because the competition was very strong and the best athletes of the Baltic States took part. Unfortunately, some athletes got injuries during the season and were not able to participate in all stages; it would have made the races more interesting. This year the invested work bore good fruit and I won the serial. I could not win the title without the support of my team „MX Moduls” and all my sponsors.
I think they are good for Latvian athletes. There is enough competition and a lot of spectators. It is always a fun to participate, when there are my fans and supporters. The organization of the races is very good and the traces are well prepared. It would be more interesting, if more athletes from abroad will take part.
