Jeffrey Herlings Voted Best Rider Sponsored by Athena of the MXGP of Trentino

PIETRAMURATA (Italy) 25 October 2021 – This season MXGP and Athena are bringing a very exciting competition to the FIM Motocross World Championship!

Throughout the year fans have the opportunity to vote for the ‘Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena’ in the MXGP category, with the votes tallied at every Grand Prix. A rider of the GP is chosen during each event in 2021 and the rider who receives the most points by the end of the season will walk away with the ultimate prize and be presented with the special award for ‘Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena’!

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, with voting closing after the second MXGP race of the day. The comments are then counted and the rider with the most votes is chosen as the best rider of that GP. 

During the MXGP of Trentino, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings was voted as the Best Rider of the Grand Prix as he topped the podium for the eighth time this season and became the most successful rider at the Pietramurata venue to win five Grand Prix’s. The Bullet received 73% of the fan’s votes, while Team HRC’s Tim Gajser placed second with 14%, while Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Glenn Coldenhoff was third.

Tim Gajser leads the competition with seven points, ahead of Jeffrey Herlings and Antonio Cairoli. But let’s see if anybody else can join the party as the ‘Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena’ will continue at the MXGP of Trentino this Wednesday!
