Lierop, Netherlands

Native Dutch rider, and sand specialist Marc de Reuver, riding for Honda, won the MX1 overall of the Benelux Grand Prix in Lierop, Holland today, with moto finishes of 1/3. Second overall went to Team Suzuki’s Ken de Dycker, with an eighth in the first moto, and the win in the second moto.

The MX1 World Motocross Championship boils down to the season finale next weekend between leader David Philippaerts of Italy, and Steve Ramon of Belgium. Philippaerts leads Ramon by 14 points with one round remaining. And Ken de Dycker still has an outside chance at the championship – he is 25 points behind Philippaerts, and 11 points behind Ramon. However, Philippaerts, who is from Italy, looks to be in good position to claim his first Motocross World Championship in front of an enthusiastic home crowd next weekend at the Faenza circuit!

South African Tyla Rattray made a strong statement today in his bid to become 2008 MX2 World Motocross Champion – a double moto sweep in the sand of Holland, which gives him the Grand Prix victory as well. He can clinch the championship next weekend at the Italian Grand Prix by scoring at least 17 points, even if second place rider in the points standings rider Tommy Searle wins both motos.

However, Searle still has a chance at the championship. He finished second in both motos today behind his KTM team-mate Rattray, for second overall. He is 33 points behind Rattray with the one round remaining. Each event has a maximum of 50 points possible.

The final round of the 2008 World Motocross Championships are next weekend in Faenza, Italy, to determine who will be the MX1 and MX2 World Motocross Champions! Supercross.com will be on hand with coverage starting Saturday morning.

The 2008 FIM Women’s World Championship Series ended today, and Livia Lancelot claimed the first ever Women’s World title by also claiming the overall win!
