2013 FIM World Motocross – Round 12 – Finland – Qualifying Races

Published July 13th, 2013

MX GP! Hyvinkaa, Finland!

Can anyone stop Red Bull KTM’s dynamic duo, and defending World Champions of Jeffery Herlings and Tony Cairoli as the series heads to the sand of Finland?

The answer is ‘yes’, at least for today’s Qualifying Races. Today in Qualifying, for the MXGP class it’s Rockstar World Suzuki rider from Belgium Clement Desalle on top. And in the MX2, the Qualifying Race was won by Glenn Coldenhoff from the Netherlands. World MXGP champion Tony Cairoli finished in second position, and MX2 World Champion Jeffrey Herlings finished ninth – the victim of a crash and a crushed exhaust pipe.

Tomorrow is the Grand Prix.
