Michael Leib has been representing the USA and Dirt Bike Magazine in Europe quite well. The long time Dirt Bike test rider has been riding a Rockstar Bud Kawasaki in the MX2 class for several rounds of the FIM world champsionship and despite a string and injuries and mechanical troubles, he’s finlly making the Euros take notice. A ninth place overall in the Swedish GP was his best result so far.
   “So far since I came to Europe I have scored points in every race that I finished, so my goal here was to finish top ten in both races,’ said Michael afterward. ‘I had to take off my goggles already on the second lap of the first moto, which made it hard work with all this mud flying, but I still managed to move forward from 18th to 13th. That gave me confidence for the second race and I finally got a great start, the first one so far this season. I was riding really tight during the first few laps but finally got comfortable and I enjoyed that race a lot, making some great passes to finish the race 7th. It makes such a difference when you have a good start and with fighting with the top guys of the class, I feel more confident. I can’t wait for my next race at the Rockstar Elite French championship round next week. My mechanic Jeremy and the whole team are working so hard, and during the second race I could show how good our Rockstar Bud Racing Kawasaki is.”
