Max Anstie has already proved he can beat the best in the world with a stunning double win at the MX of Nations at the end of 2017. And last week he took two second places behind world champ Tony Cairoli in Sicily – on the track Cairoli has been using for years as his winter testing ground.
This weekend Anstie takes on Jeffrey Herlings, Tommy Searle, Gautier Paulin, Nathan Watson, Graeme Irwin, Jake Nicholls, Brad Anderson, Evgeny Bobryshev, Jordi Tixier and more at the Hawkstone Park International where he crashed while leading last year, and still finished on the podium. Can he beat them all in 2018?
Check out his video of his pre-season training.
