2003 WORLD MOTOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP      2003 MX DES NATIONS

  • STEFAN EVERTS WINS MXGP CHAMPIONSHIP
    30 year old Begian officially becomes the greatest ever world motocross rider with 7 titles and 69 GP wins.
    " ... I have been dreaming of the seventh world title for some years and to finally do it is unbelievable ... It has been a long road to this point and the record will take some days to sink in. This achievement is wonderful for my family and friends ... This is something I have been working for since I started GPs in 1989 - to be seven times world champion, to win more than anybody else. Even now it is only just starting to sink in, but in a few more days I guess I will finally realise that my dream has come true..."
  • JOEL SMETS WINS 650 CLASS CHAMPIONSHIP
    " ... I was confused about my goal at the start of the season because we did not know if we would be competitive on the 450 and the 650 was labelled as some ‘second division’ title. Now I am so happy the Championship has been won. In the first half of the year I thought I had the ability to beat with Stefan and Mickael but the combination of the rider and the bike turned out not to be on the same level and that is a compliment to Stefan and Yamaha ..... I am sad to be leaving KTM at the end of the year. We have won and lost together and that’s the sport .."
