Frenchman Christophe Pourcel takes his first overall win of the championship ahead of Jeremy Martin and Marvin Musquin. The Europeans seem to be making a late charge this year as it has really been the first time this year Marvin has been up in contention.
Justin Bogle, Blake Baggett and Dean Wilson completed the top 6 with Cooper Webb having some dramas all weekend ending up in 15th. Cooper now sits in 3rd in the championship behind Baggett but with 2 rounds remaining there is still a chance for Cooper to make it a Yamaha 1-2 for the championship.

Stay tuned for more info on MXON and rider lists from more countries in coming weeks!
Jackson Strong Breaks World Record:
Aussie Metal Mulisha rider recently travelled to Holland where the stage was set at the Zwarte Cross festival for him to attempt the world record for the longest backflip off a metal ramp.
Zwarte Cross Festival is one of the largest music, camping and sports festivals of the year in Holland with over 180,000 fans pouring through the gates over the 3 days.
Jacko leaned back on his YZ250 to successfully backflip over 144.94ft and then backed it up by flipping it again!
Jacko has been filming his own feature length moto film called “Headstrong” which was put on hold for a few months after a new years’ accident involving fireworks saw him in hospital needing multiple surgeries and some time off the bike. It looks like it hasn’t slowed him down at all and it is good to see him riding solid again!
