Englishman Max Anstie has MX in his blood - he is the son of former FIM 500cc World Title Contender Marvyn Anstie. After a highly touted Amateur career where he was successful in both Europe and the US, Anstie opted to race full time in the US on the professional level starting in 2009.

After some solid performances in the States, Anstie headed back to Europe full time in 2011 to contest the MX2 World Title with the CLS Kawasaki team. He continued to develop as a rider over the next few seasons and scored 3rd Overall in the MX2 World Championship in 2015.

Anstie made the switch over to Husqvarna in 2016 and finished off his MX2 Career with a 4th Overall for the season. He graduated to the MXGP Class in 2017 and joined the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing IceOne program. Anstie enjoyed a successful rookie 450 campaign in '17 that included multiple podium overall finishes as well as a 3rd Place at the MX of Nations on his home ground in the UK.

2018 should be an exciting year for Anstie as he becomes an MXGP Sophomore and surely have his eye on the top step of the podium.
