The World Championship Motocross Series has definitely changed for the better, with great racing action starting on Saturday’s now: the first moto of the Women’s World Motocross Championships, and the Qualifying heats for MX1 and MX2.

Great weather at the circuit Gorna Rositza in Bulgaria as Ken de Dycker, Marvin Musquin, and Stephanie Laier win the three main motos of Saturday.

In Motocross MX1, a familair face returned to the top of the podium – Mr. Josh Coppins, riding the Monster Yamaha YZ 450. The likeable Kiwi won his first GP in some time by finishing second in both motos.

The MX1 Series has a new points leader – Mr. Ken de Dycker of the Teka Suzuki team. Ken won the first moto today, followed that up with an eighth in the second moto, but it’s good enough to lead the points after two rounds.

Overall MX1 winner Josh Coppins: “This weekend it came together for me” explained the delighted Kiwi. “I have been training really hard and my fitness is good – this has given me the confidence to ride hard. I was not the fastest rider out there today, but my starts were great and I rode very smooth, kept out of trouble, and got the results.”

Saturday’s MX1 Motocross Qualifying winner, and current points leader Ken de Dycker said “This is not my favorite track because it is too fast and can be hard to pass. I had a decent start – for me – and found some nice lines. After that the race went well and felt easy. I have had enough of the mud so it is good to have sunny conditions like this.”

Ken de Dycker leads Coppins by one points as they head to the next round in Turkey next weekend.

In MX2, the overall winnner was Marvin Musquin with moto finishes of first and third over second place finisher Gautier Paulin’s two/two. Paulin leads Musquin by four points in the chase the MX2 Motocross World Championship crown.

MX2 Series points leader Gautier Paulin said “Many people thought I had the red plate only because the conditions were so bad in Italy and that I was lucky to win there. I really needed to prove to them that I can maintain this lead in ‘normal’ conditions, and I did that today. We are making further improvements on the bike all the time, so I am hoping my speed will increase further throughout the year.” smiled the delighted Frenchman.

In the Womens’ racing, the Grand Prix was won by defending Motocross World Champion Livia Lancelot from France.
