MX 1 – Belgian Suzuki racer Clement Desalle won today’s Latvian Motocross Grand Prix with moto finishes of 1/2. World MX1 Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli finished second overall today, with a fourth in the first moto, and the win in the second moto. Former World MX Champion Steve Ramon rode to third overall via consistent 3/3 finishes.
Tony, from Italy, and racing for Red Bull KTM, leads Clement in the championship points chase by 61 points, as the world championship series heads next weekend to Sweden for Round 10.
From Grand Prix winner Clement Desalle, courtesy of Suzuki: “I was close to winning here last year so I am glad I could do it this time. To take the GP is really good, but I wanted to win that second moto as well – but Antonio was too fast. I concentrated on my lines and did not want to make any mistakes. The first moto win was good, and I saw Bobryshev getting tired towards the end, so I pushed hard and knew that I was taking seconds on him each lap. No crashes, my shoulder feels very strong and a lot of points – it was a good weekend.”
MX 2 – Jeffrey Herlings, only 15 years of age, and from the Netherlands racing for KTM, won the MX2 Grand Prix with moto finishes of 3/1. Second overall, and now a ‘seasoned veteran’ at age 16, German rider Ken Roczen finished second overall on the day. World MX2 Champion Marvin Musquin, from France, finished fourth overall, but maintains a healthy lead in the 250 point standings.
KTM has a quote from young Mr. Herlings regarding his second MX GP win: “I’m really satisfied with my weekend. I’ve had my ups and downs this season. I started really good in the first five rounds then I had three bad rounds so it felt awesome to be back on top again. This was my second GP win. In the first heat I was in the lead after two corners and then I got passed by Marvin and Ken (Roczen) and I finished third. Then I took the hole shot in the second and I had a long fight with Steven (Frossard) but I fought hard and I was able to win the moto and the GP.”
News is out the Ken Roczen will race AMA Supercross in 2011 if the expected rule change is put into effect, allowing younger riders to race professionally in the USA.
