Kawasaki riders are on the charge all across the planet. Be it Europe or the United States, men on the distinctive green Kawasaki motorcycles are churning up a storm.
Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Tommy Searle dominated the MX2 class at the Grand Prix of Sweden at the weekend, sounding alarm bells for series leader Jeffrey Herlings.
The British rider went 2-1 for the win as Herlings crashed in the second race of the day and could only manage 1-7 results.
The win came hot on the heels of Searle's victory at the Belgian GP two weeks earlier.
Herlings ended the weekend's GP in second place with another Kawasaki rider, Frenchman Dylan Ferrandis, finishing third overall.
"I was comfortable in front in race one," said Searle afterwards.
"But my goggles steamed up and I was making mistakes and I decided to stop and get new goggles, but it took me some time to get my rhythm back and I just missed out on the win in race one."
Meanwhile, in the United States, Blake Baggett has cemented his hold on the top spot in the 250cc class with another solid result, this time at round five of the series at Budd's Creek, Maryland, just south of Washington D.C.
Baggett and his Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki KX250F took over the series lead at the previous round at Mount Morris, Pennsylvania, and then the Californian went 2-1 at Budd's Creek to extend his championship lead to 13 points over New York's Justin Barcia.
There is still a long way to go in both the American and world championship competitions, but Baggett and Searle certainly have momentum on their side.
The next round of the world championships is set for Kegums, in Latvia, on July 15 and the next round of the US series is due at Red Bud, Buchanan, Michigan, this weekend.
