What a year that was! It was 2005 and Belgian legend Stefan Everts and Kiwi riders Josh Coppins and Ben Townley battled throughout for the MX1 crown.
The season eventually finished in that order and now, 11 years later, Everts and Townley are back alongside one another, only now as team boss and rider for Suzuki World MXGP. Good luck for 2016 guys!
