It was quite a weekend in the world of motocross. Big races in Unadilla, New York, and Matterley Basin in the UK. This first photo feature concentrates on the World MX GP in Matterley Basin.
In World MX GP, 35,000 people in the UK were on hand. In MX1, it was the indomitable Italian Tony Cairoli winning both motos. In MX2, ‘hometown’ racer Tommy Searle swept both motos.
Here’s what Tommy had to say after winning MX2: “Today has been amazing. It is always hard to do it at home. Everyone is here for you but there is pressure with that because you don’t want to let them down. I gave everything I had today and was fortunate to have two good starts.”
And here’s what Tony Cairoli had to say afterwards “I like to race in England. I have a lot of fans and they cheer like crazy all the time, so for me it is nice to come here.Ã‚Â And also the tracks they work really well, and they are always fun to ride on. It’s amazing that it’s my 51st GP so I’m pretty happy about that.”
