Max Nagl won the ADAC MX Masters series.

At the final event in Fürstlich Drehna, however, the man from Weilheim didn't stop at “just” taking the overall win.

Fürstlich Drehna – Max Nagl didn't really have to exert himself anymore, but the new champion of the ADAC MX Masters wanted to show once again that he really deserved the title, which could no longer be taken from him.

And so Nagl really pushed the pace in the very last race on the course in Fürstlich Drehna.

First he passed holeshot Jorge Zaragoza (Spain), then the Husqvarna rider from Weilheim went in pursuit of leader Adam Sterry (Great Britain).

On the eighth lap, halfway through the race, Nagl overtook his competitor.

After that, he extended the lead over his competitors.

The veteran crossed the finish line a whopping twelve seconds ahead of second, Tom Koch.

Max Nagl wins the ADAC MX Masters for the third time

"I really wanted to end the season with a race win after I concentrated on winning the title yesterday," said Nagl in an ADAC statement.

On the first day of the race weekend in Brandenburg, he secured his overall victory with second place in the first race, ahead of Frenchman Jordi Tixier (KTM), who placed first in this race.

"It took a few years now, but the championship feels all the better," said Nagl.

For him it was the third ADAC MX Masters title overall.

The last one was 14 years ago.

In 2008 Nagl won the prestigious series.

After that, the man from Weilheim was mainly active in the Motocross World Championship for around ten years, becoming vice world champion in 2009, third overall in 2016 and team world champion in 2012.

Last season, Nagl was close to winning the MX Masters and clinched numerous victories at the beginning.

A rib injury slowed him down and he finished third at the end of the five-event series.

There must be fun, too: immediately after crossing the finish line, overall winner Max Nagl was decked out with special accessories by his team.

This year the MX Masters stretched over eight events, each with three races.

Nagl dominated the action from the start.

Only twice – in Gaildorf and Jauer – did he travel home without a race win.

At the start, in Dreetz, and at the fourth event, in Tensfeld, he scored the maximum of 75 points.

Nagl won 13 of a total of 24 races. With 551 points, he clearly won the overall standings ahead of Tixier (493) and Tom Koch (444), with whom he recently took a respectable eighth place for “Team Germany” at the “Motocross of Nations”.

"I'm particularly pleased to have become champion together with the 'Krettek-Haas-Racing-Team'," said Nagl after his coup - and announced: "Despite my age, I'm not done yet and will do it again next year compete,” said the 35-year-old.

Max Nagl wins the ADAC MX Masters with a clear lead

The Husqvarna driver finished the race in Fürstlich Drehna with 69 points in second place behind Tixier (70) and ahead of Sterry (56).

Changeable weather – from sun to rain, there was a lot on offer – presented the drivers with a challenge in front of a good 8,000 spectators.

In the first race, Nagl won the start, but was not able to pull away.

When he was held up in traffic with lapped drivers four laps to go, Tixier overtook him.

Nagl didn't risk anything because second place was enough for him to win the title early.

In the second race, the man from Weilheim overtook Tixier on the sixth lap and took the lead.

But once again the German had problems lapping other drivers, so Tixier again won in front of him.

Nagl's ambition was spurred on - in the third run he then achieved the longed-for victory.

Junior driver Valentin Kees was less satisfied with his performance.

The man from Schwabniederhofen – most recently the clear winner in two classes at the MSC Reichling event – ​​had to settle for 24th place among 41 starters in the “Youngster Cup” in Fürstlich Drehna.

"A difficult weekend," was the summary of the driver from the "KTM Kosak Racing" team.

In races one (21st place) and three (22nd place) he failed to score points.

In the second race, Kees scored four points in seventeenth place.

In the overall ranking of the "Youngster Cup", the 17-year-old took twelfth place with 128 points.

Behind Paul Bloy (10th), he was the second-best driver of the "Kosak Racing" team.

Kees collected the most points over a race weekend, namely 33, at the penultimate event in Holzgerlingen.

There he finished eighth in the international field.

Once, in Tensfeld, Kees had to rest after a fall and was unable to collect any points.

Otherwise, he regularly collected points - and thus played a part in the victory of the "KTM Kosak Racing" squad in the overall team ranking of the ADAC MX Masters.
