MX1 – what can you say about the MX1 World Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli of Italy? He won race by over 15 seconds from second place Shaun Simpson. Tony is doing what he’s always been doing – winning. He is the perfect combination of everything required to be a five time world champion – speed, brains, and fitness. Tony’s race was 12 laps, just over 26 minutes.
Former MX 2 World Champion, and former AMA East Regional Supercross Champion Christophe Pourcel was only able to make one lap, having an unfortunate day, primarily due to a crash in the first corner.
MX2 – Red Bull KTM’s youngest rider, Jordi Tixier, from France, won his first ever race for the team and himself today. He fits right into the mold of what KTM does, nuturing young riders and helping them reach their potential (see Ken Roczen and Jeffrey Herlings). Jordi’s teammate, and current MX2 series points leader Herlings finished second in today’s qualifying race, about 20 seconds behind Jordi.
Tommy Searle was only able to complete seven laps, also having an unfortunate day, with a broken radiator after contact with Arnaud Tonus.
