Rider: Max Anstie
Team: Gariboldi Factory Honda
Machine: Honda CRF250F (#119)
Born: April 25, 1993 in Winchester, England
Son of former FIM 500cc World GP contender, Marvyn Anstie, Max Anstie is originally from England but has been in America for the past two seasons to pursue his dream of becoming an AMA Supercross/Motocross champion. In 2009 Max turned 16 and decided to go pro on the AMA Motocross Championship series in the Lites class. He finished ninth-place in both motos at Washougal, his best finish of the season.
In the 2010 Supercross season opener at Anaheim Anstie had a top-10 finish in his SX Lites debut ride. He followed this by coming in seventh at Round 2 in Anaheim. In one of the final races of the season he finished ninth, and overall he took ninth in the championship.
During the outdoor series Anstie experienced a rocky season. The 17-year-old from England took his highest finish of the season at Freestone in ninth, but otherwise his results were less than ideal. In 2011 Anstie will be back in Europe where he plans to contest the FIM World MX2 Motocross Championship. He will be riding aboard the Pro Circuit Monster Energy CLS Kawasaki team, and it remains unclear if he will be participating in any rounds of the West Coast Lites Supercross Championship.
Max Anstie is the son of 500cc World GP contender Marvyn Anstie. Max is currently having an impressive season in the West Coast Region of Supercross.
