After recently confirming Jeremy Seewer would stay on the factory Suzuki MX2 team for his last year in the class in 2017, team boss Stefan Everts has now signed up the World No2 for 2018 and 2019 on Suzuki’s MXGP team.
Swiss rider Seewer, who turns 23 next year, will have to move up to the MXGP class due to the age limit. He’s had his best ever season this year, with 10 podiums in 18 rounds. Not missing one GP outing, Seewer put the crown on his season finishing runner-up to Jeffrey Herlings in the MX2 series.
Since Everts took over the team, he has been working closely together with the riders and assisting them in every way he can. “For me it actually was a pleasure to know and work with Stefan for my first year now. And I knew, I would decide about my future after working together with him. It all worked out great this season, we want to go in the same direction, I feel good in the team so it was clear for me that I wanted to stay with them and that my future was with Suzuki,” said Seewer.
