Enjoying a perfect weekend at the impressive Matterley Basin track, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider Thomas Kjer-Olsen has claimed a deserved overall MX2 class victory following two controlled MX2 class moto wins in the United Kingdom. Collecting 50 points at the British GP, the FC 250 powered rider has also taken over the lead in the provisional MX2 World Championship standings following round two of the 2019 series.

After his strong runner-up result at the season opener in Argentina, Thomas Kjer-Olsen entered the British GP looking to continue his solid 2019 campaign. Winning Saturday’s qualifying moto, the young Dane then continued his winning ways by putting in two solid moto performances in the south of England.

Getting off to a great start in the opening MX2 moto, Kjer-Olsen was second at the close of the first lap. Making a pass for the lead shortly after he never looked back and claimed his first moto victory for the season in race one.

Taking the lead during the second lap of race two, Thomas went on to wrap up his weekend at the British GP with a perfect 1-1 score. In the absence of early FIM MX2 World Championship points leader Jorge Prado, Thomas Kjer-Olsen now enjoys a 16-point championship lead over his closest rival.

Making his World Championship debut aboard FC 250 machinery, Jed Beaton secured a solid 10th overall in the MX2 category. Claiming a strong ninth place result in the opening 250cc class moto, the young Aussie ended the weekend by placing 13th in the second and final race.

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will return to action at the third round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship in The Netherlands on March 30/31.

Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It’s just awesome to go 1-1 here in the UK. My weekend was really good – I won the qualifying moto and then went on the claim the overall in MX2 with two more wins. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. It’s been a long time since I got the overall win and I was happy to do it at this cool track. Matterley Basin has always been a track that I enjoy riding and this weekend I did my best to collect as many points as possible for the championship. I felt comfortable all weekend and my best moto was the last one, where the track was at its roughest. I have so much full confidence in my bike, and so much trust in all the members of my team. It was good to pay them back with this win. I also secured the red plate for the first time. Now the goal is to hold onto it and push hard during the upcoming races.”

Thomas Kjer Olsen second overall at the Grand Prix of Argentina


Enjoying a positive start to the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship, Thomas Kjer-Olsen has secured Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s best results at the season opening GP of Patagonia in Argentina, where the young Dane claimed a strong overall runner-up result in the MX2 class.

With the 2019 series starting at the picturesque Neuquen track, Kjer-Olsen showed impressive speed throughout the weekend. Kicking off the GP with an imposing victory in the MX2 Qualifying Race, he then entered the all-important final motos full of confidence and looking to produce equally impressive performances.

Battling his way forward from a seventh-place start to claim an eventual second-place result in the opening moto, Thomas then went on to collect another runner-up result during the second and final MX2 moto after moving from third into the runner-up spot on lap five. Following his strong start to the championship the FC 250 powered rider sits second in the 2019 FIM MX2 World Championship’s provisional standings.

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will return to action at the second round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship in the United Kingdom on March 23/24.

Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “I’m quite happy to start this season with a second-place overall result here in Argentina. As a racer I’m always looking for race wins, but it is really good to start the season on the podium. In the first moto I spun out of the gate and gave myself some work to do. I managed to get up to second on lap 10, so I was pleased with that. The second moto went well. I moved from third to second and spent the whole race there. It’s going to be a long year with plenty of racing to be done, so I am happy to head back to Europe second in the championship. The plan now is to get back to work. I want to make the most of this short break in the series and continue working before the next round at Matterley Basin.”
