It’s MX GP of the Benelux, in Lierop, Holland. Today, Shaun Simpson on top in MX GP class, and Jeffrey Herlings in MX2. World Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli third in season finale, riding a 450. Next up – Motocross of Nations, Germany, September 28 & 29.

Notes: Lierop is a traditional Dutch sand track. Very rough, very demanding, almost completely flat as it winds thru deep forests. Shaun Simpson surprised a lot of people today in winning his first ever MX GP class Grand Prix. He rides a Yamaha. Jeffrey Herlings did what he normally does in MX2 – sweep both motos – even with an injured shoulder. Video hi-lites below courtesy Youthstream.
