Jonas Moutin Dominates in Germany at Round Two of the 2024 Junior e-Motocross Series

Jonas Moutin has emerged victorious in Teutschenthal at round two of the 2024 Junior e-Motocross Series after securing a commanding race win on Saturday. The KTM SX-E 5 mounted French youngster put in an impressive ride in front of a packed crowd at the MXGP of Germany.

Just two weeks on from the season opener, the 2024 Junior e-Motocross Series headed to the valley of Teutschenthal, Germany, one of the most iconic circuits on the MXGP calendar, for round two. The action kicked off with a timed practice session, followed by the first of the weekend’s two scheduled seven-minute-plus-one-lap races. With a full start gate made up of passionate young riders of 12 different nationalities, it made for some exciting racing. As he did in France, Lucas Bos went fastest in timed practice, ahead of fellow Frenchmen Mathis Negre and Jonas Moutin.

Race one saw plenty of exciting battles as the youngsters took on the fan-favourite MXGP circuit. Fuelled by his race win at round one, it was Jonas Moutin who came out on top on his KTM SX-E 5 for the second time this season after battling with Alexander Bihimann in the early stages of the race. GASGAS MC-E 5 mounted Bihimann ultimately secured second place ahead of Vitus Horseborg, despite the Danish rider piling on the pressure in the final few laps.

Unfortunately, following the first race, a meeting was held with Infront Moto Racing, organisers of the FIM MXGP World Championship, and it was decided that the second race would be cancelled due to track conditions following heavy rain on Saturday.

Racing in front of the packed hillsides of fans in Teutchenthal, the Junior e-Motocross Series provided no shortage of entertainment for fans at the MXGP of Germany. The series showcases not only the skill of the future generation of motocross stars, but also the remarkable capability of their electric machines. The 2024 Junior e-Motocross Series heads to Loket, Czech Republic for more action at round three on July 20-21.

Jonas Moutin: “I’m really happy to have got my first overall win! At round one I won one of the races, but not overall, so it’s really exciting to have done that this weekend. Thanks to everyone who helped me get here and I can’t wait for the next round.”

Victory at Home for Lucas Bos at Opening Round of 2024 Junior e-Motocross Series in France

Lucas Bos has secured the overall win on home soil at the opening round of the 2024 Junior e-Motocross series after winning race one and finishing as runner-up in race two. Competing on a KTM SX-E 5, the young French rider put in a commanding performance all weekend on the hillsides of St Jean d’Angely at the MXGP of France.

The technical St Jean d’Angely circuit in France hosted the 2024 Junior e-Motocross season opener, where a near full gate of riders took to the line. Beginning with a timed practice session on Saturday morning followed by the first of two seven-minute-plus-one-lap races, eager young riders from twelve different countries took on the iconic MXGP track. It was France’s Lucas Bos who topped the timesheets for the first time over the weekend on his KTM SX-E 5, ahead of Mathis Negre and Ryan Gabriel.

The first race of the series provided no shortage of entertainment, with some impressive battles happening throughout. Keeping his momentum from timed practice, Lucas Bos took the lead on lap two and maintained it for the rest of the race to secure his first victory. Just behind Bos, a three-way battle for second place was ongoing between Ryan Gabriel, Alexander Bihimann, and Vitus Horseborg. Ultimately, it was Austria’s Gabriel who clinched second place on the final lap aboard his Husqvarna EE 5, with Alexander Bihimann rounding out the top three on his GASGAS MC-E 5.

Race two saw a new victor emerge as Jonas Moutin took the win over Lucas Bos, also on home soil. The French pair traded places for the duration of the race, but it was Jonas, on his KTM SX-E 5, who took the lead on the final lap, leaving Lucas in second. Denmark’s Vitus Horsebog had an excellent start, going into lap one in fourth, which he managed to one-up by the finish line, going third-fastest in race two just five seconds behind Moutin.

The Junior e-Motocross series drew plenty of spectators, with the fan-favourite track suiting the enthusiastic young riders and demonstrating the impressive capability of their machines. After a thrilling opening round, the 2024 Junior e-Motocross series continues in two weeks’ time at the MXGP of Germany in Teutschenthal on June 2-3.

Lucas Bos: “I’m really happy to have won overall, especially after winning yesterday. I loved racing in the championship last year so to win now is amazing. Thank you to my family and my sponsors for helping me get here, I can’t wait for the next races.”
