St. Jean d’Angely

The last ‘big’ race here at St. Jean was the ‘biggest’ – The FIM Motocross of Nations. In September, Team USA of Supercross and Motocross Champion Ryan Villopoto, former Supercross and MX Champion Ryan Dungey, and Blake Baggett, managed by the legendary Roger De Coster, won the prestigious Chamberlain Trophy. Here you can revisit that 2011 Motocross of Nations won by Team USA at St. Jean. But today belongs to KTM’s World Wrecking Crew – Tony Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings

MX2 Grand Prix – Jeffrey Herlings, racing for the mighty KTM Red Bull team, won today’s MX 2 event with moto finishes of first and second. Second overall, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Tommy Searle. And those two lead the point standings as well, Herlings on top with 270, and Searle second with 248.

MX1 Grand Prix – What can you say about five time World Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli? He’s been ‘on top of his game’ for a number of years now, and always seems to be able to do just what needs to be done. So what did he do today? He won both motos! It’s Tony’s 46th career MX GP win. “Home” riders Christophe Pourcel and Gautier Paulin rounded out the podium, making it a good day for French riders as well.

Today was Tony Cairoli’s 46th career MX GP win

 

World MX 1 Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli from Italy commented after his 46th career Grand Prix victory: I’m really happy about this victory, plus, I beat Pourcel at his home GP. I gave him back what he did to me in Fermo. The same thing happened in 2007. At the end of the race we hugged each other and we said that the next time we are going to make a deal to make our own fans happy!

Red Bull KTM teammate Jeffrey Herlings said: My first race was quite easy after I took the hole-shot, but I had a bad start in the second moto and was back in tenth, and I had to work my way back to second.
