Antonio Cairoli, riding for the Red Bull Yamaha team, swept both motos of the first ever Turkish Grand Prix of Motocross, and with the double moto victory, the likeable and friendly Italian moved into the points lead for the 2009 World Motocross Championship!
American Zach Osborne won his first ever MX2 Motocross Grand Prix today with finishes of 3/1. MX2 Series points leader Gautier Paulin finished second overall with finishes of 1/7.
The 2009 MX2 World Motocross Series points leader Gautier Paulin said after the Turkish Grand Prix: I was really happy about the first race and taking the win for the first time in Turkey. A bad start in the second race left me with a lot of work to do on a track that is not so easy to pass on. I was expecting to win the overall today, but I still leave here with the red plate and now we move to the sand in Valkenswaard where it will be a very different ball game. I’ll spend a lot of time practicing in the sand for the next two weeks and am looking forward to the next GP.
