Brian Bogers Voted Best Rider Sponsored by Athena at the MXGP of Flanders

MONACO (Principality of Monaco) 25 July 2022 – For the 2022 season of the FIM Motocross World Championship, we see the return of a very exciting competition, that is the Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena.

Throughout the season fans have the opportunity to cast their votes race-by-race and decide who becomes the ‘Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena’ in MXGP at the end of this year’s championship.

Votes are tallied at every Grand Prix, with the ‘Best Rider of the GP’ being chosen during each event of 2022. The rider who is voted the most times as the best rider, will walk away with the ultimate prize and be presented with the special award for ‘Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena’!

How to vote:

Every Grand Prix Sunday a dedicated post is shared on MXGP’s official Instagram page under which fans can comment who their favourite rider of the weekend is. This competition is only for MXGP riders and the voting closes at 8pm on Sunday.

The comments are then counted and the rider with the most votes is chosen as the best rider of that GP. 

At the MXGP of Flanders, the overall Grand Prix winner Brian Bogers of Standing Construct Husqvarna Factory Racing stood on the first step on the MXGP podium for the very first time in his career and was also voted by the fans as the Best Rider at the MXGP of Flanders after receiving 38.8% of the votes, compared to Tim Gajser of Team HRC who received 37% ahead of Gebben Van Venrooy Yamaha Racing’s Calvin Vlaanderen who received 11%.

After 14 rounds, Tim Gajser continues to hold a comfortable lead with nine points. The Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena will continue at the MXGP of Sweden.
