GP Bits: MXGP of Sweden | Round 16

The Swedish fans don't mind a little rock climbing to get the best seats.

The big news of the weekend was Jorge Prado taking the MX2 Championship for the second year in a row.

His season was pretty amazing and while he went 1 - 4 for third overall in the Swedish GP, going 1 - 1 at 12 of the races this year so far proves his domination in the MX2 class.

When a Spaniard wins, the bullfighters come out.

Nothing is safe from victory customization.

More champ stamps.

Pirelli went all out with gold painted tires.

Burn out in the dirt?

That's more like it.

Team Prado was on one.

Standing Construct KTM rider Glenn Condenhoff is putting on a late-season charge. With 1 - 2 moto scores, he gets his second overall victory in a row. Ramping things up for the MXoN?

Rockstar Husky rider Pauls Jonass throws down some style.

He's had an up and down season but landed on the box for the second time this year with a third overall in Sweden.

"Can I get something to clean up the dirt?"

"Perfect, thanks"

With the MXGP Championship wrapped up, Honda HRC's Tim Gajser could ride without pressure. He put together a solid 3 - 1 score for second overall.

Fox is helping Tiga keep score.

We're going to take a look at his bike again.

Sure, they are decals, but gold leaf decals are still rad.

Custom championship cans.

We've seen his bike before, but this time around we noticed the carbon guard between the shift pedal and the cases.

Golden sprocket?

Teamwork makes the dream work.

Monster Energy Yamaha's Jeremy Seewer had another good ride over the weekend landing in 4th overall.

Jeremy Van Horbeek rounded out the top five and showed some Swedish love with his jersey number, as usual.

JWR Yamaha's Kevin Strijbos hasn't had the best MXGP season, missing a handful of races this year. But, the Belgian races on a Swedish team that went all out for their home races.

How many yellow crosses can one bike have?

And crowns and the cityscape of Stockholm?

More details, and you can tell it is the end of the season looking at those fork lugs and hub.

Jeffrey Herlings was back on the track. He retired from the first moto but got 4th in the second.

Will he dominate the MXoN again?

Nice helmet graphic and custom nose cover.

Tom Vialle won his first MX2 overall victory with 2 - 2 moto scores.

The young Frenchman has shown flashes of speed that should make the rest of the field nervous for next year's championship.

Honda HRC MX2 rider Calvin Vlaanderen got his first moto win of the year in moto 2, putting him ahead of Prado for second overall.

TKO (Thomas Kjer-Olsen) had an OK weekend with 6th overall, but he didn't ride this one out.

Another Champion was crowned in Sweden. Roan Van De Moosdijk secured the EMX250 Championship which is the feeder class for the MX2 and MXGP world series.

Still a big deal to be European 250 Champ.

You can almost hear that bike wide open.

Sweden, out!
