2011 FIM World Motocross – Round 13 – Great Britain

Published August 21st, 2011

Round 13 of the FIM World Motocross Series – Great Britain. KTM’s Kenny Roczen sweeps both MX 2 races, and extends his series points lead. MX 1 World Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli from Italy won the overall today in MX1 over a resurgent Christophe Pourcel, and Tony inches ever so closer to another world title.

Three names stick out from today’s action at the British Grand Prix of Motocross – Ken Roczen, Tony Cairoli, and Christophe Pourcel.

MX1 – As mentioned yesterday, two riders did not compete this weekend in Britain – Belgian Clement Desalle and Russian Evgeny Bobryshev. They crashed last week in the Belgian National MX Championship series round in Balen. Clement – injured shoulder and surgery. Evgeny injured back, didn’t race as precaution against further injury. World Honda Motocross did announce that both Evgeny, and Rui Goncalves, will be back on the team for 2012.

Tony Cairoli just cannot be stopped. “TC 222″ won today’s overall victory in the MX1 class, scoring a third in the first moto, and winnning the second moto. Tony scores 45 points, extends his series points lead … and it’s possible he could claim his fifth World Motocross title at the next round in Gaildorf, Germany.

And again, just like in yesterday’s Qualifying, surpringly, (based on his 2011 performances so far), 2009 and 2010 AMA East Regional Lites Supercross Champion Christophe Pourcel, from France, finished second overall today – he won the first race, and took second behind Tony in the second race. Christophe scores 45 points as well, but the better second moto performance gives Tony the overall victory. Third overall today goes to Steven Frossard of France, with moto finishes of 2/2 (44 points).



MX2 – The talented German Ken Roczen swept both races today, extending his series points leader substantially, with only two rounds remaing in the 2011 FIM World Motocross Championships – Gaildorf, Germany and Fermo, Italy. Second in the point standings behind Ken Dutchman Jeffrey Herlings finished fourh overall today, with scores of seventh of third in the two races.

Kawasaki’s Tommy Searle, a “hometown” racer finished second overall today (2/2), and third went to France’s Gautier Paulin.
