Teutschenthal – Talkessel Circuit
It’s the German Grand Prix of Motocross! And the MX1 win belongs to the World Motocross Championship points leader – Mr. Tony Cairoli!
Max Nagl is the ‘hometown’ favorite here in Germany, and he rode strong after an early season wrist injury – he finished second overall today. And Suzuki’s Ken de Dycker has regained his form as well, finishing third overall.
Supercross.com will have Tony Cairoli’s own words about the race coming tomorrow in his column.
In MX2, another ‘hometown’ favorite has got to be Ken Roczen. Surprisingly, it’s been reported that Ken is only 15 years old! And his first MX2 Motocross Grand Prix was a few days after he turned 15 years of age – the GP of Portugal earlier this season. Ken won the MX2 Motocross Grand Prix of Germany today! He is the youngest winner ever of a Motocross Grand Prix! And Marvin Musquin maintains his championship points lead as the series head to it’s next event – the Latvian Grand Prix of Motocross – next weekend!
Ken Roczen said “I don’t know what to say; this is amazing for me. After my first two GPs I saw that the podium was possible. I always do my best and I hoped for a podium here, with a bit of luck, but didn’t expect the win. Musquin was going fast but I thought I could pass him. Towards the end I knew that second place would give the overall so I rode safe. All the attention has come quickly and it isn’t always easy to give people what they want but I try to do what I can!”
