A new deal of the week on 24MX!

There was a lot to celebrate at the Grand Prix of Lombardia today, although there was a bittersweet ending to the day when a few riders returned to the Italian paddock. A handful of fans, if they can even be called that, entered team areas and stole some rather valuable items. Max Anstie and Jeremy Van Horebeek have made their issues public on social media. A quote from the former is below.

"HELMET STOLEN TODAY! Steady day today. P10 in quali race, felt a bit rusty after my crash last week, but looking forward to it tomorrow. On another note someone bloody stole my helmet!!!! I only have two and I'm gonna be wearing one of them, so if anyone sees my helmet floating about tomorrow go and get it back for me… I'll give a shirt to anyone who brings my helmet back."

Jeremy Van Horebeek had exactly the same issue after, coincidentally, finishing one spot ahead of Max Anstie in the premier-class qualifying heat. Van Horebeek posted the following message on social media.

"I feel sad to say it, but really I'm sick of the Italian people right now! Luckily not all Italians are like that. Every GP in Italy they steal my stuff! Today my helmet from Argentina was stolen while I was trying to give my all in quali heat… I would like to say if this is the only reason why you come to a MXGP race pleas stay f*cking home! I hope if you ever wear the helmet karma will do its job! Not only the helmet was stolen, also a full gear for the GP of Italy, so really feel bad about it, but it's always the same here! I'm sick of it!"

Another thing that Jeremy Van Horebeek and Max Anstie have in common is that they both battled health issues entering the Grand Prix of Lombardia. Van Horebeek crashed at the previous round in Italy and had to have surgery on his shoulder, which was kept a secret until today. Anstie fell in moto two at the Dutch Masters a week ago and hurt his elbow, but did not sustain any significant damage.
