Glen Helen Raceway

Weather definitely played a factor today for the first US MX Grand Prix since 1999. It was extremely hot! Regardless, the top racers in both MX1 and MX2 classes won today, and extended their series points lead as well – current World Champions Antonio Cairoli in MX1, and Marvin Musquin in MX2.

MX1 – No one in the world is on Tony Cairoli’s level right now. The reigning MX1 World Champion won the first moto, racing almost the last 20 minutes without a shifter – his bike stuck in third gear. In the second moto, he came from behind to finish in third position, which was won by Ben Townley.

The first MX1 race was the most exciting race of the day – World Motocross Champion Antonio Cairoli from Italy won a great battle with Mike Alessi, who ultimately would finish second in the moto and second overall on the day. Tony was leading much of the race, but slowed briefly, and Mike Alessi went into the lead momentarily. Tony was motioning to his pit area when he came by that something was wrong with the bike – and if you look at one of the photos of Tony below – you’ll see his shifter came off! He still passed Mike Alessi back, rode the final laps of the race entirely in third gear – and won! Belgium’s Clement Desalle finished third overall. Results below.

MX2 – Marvin Musquin, the defending World MX 2 Champ from France, raced to the victory in the 250cc class, sweeping both motos. No one was close. Second overall was American Zach Osborne with finishes of 4/2. And third overall was Steven Frossard racing a Kawasaki – he had finishes of 2/4.

Notes: This GP was probably a seminal moment in motocross history. The promoter of the race & Glen Helen track owner Dr. Bud Feldkamp praised Youthstream, the company that organizes the World Motocross Championships. In turn, Giuseppe Luongo, President of Youthstream, praised Dr. Feldkamp and his entire staff of their preparation to organize a Grand Prix race in the USA in a short 60 day time period.

In addition to Glen Helen hosting Grand Prix events for a number of years in the future, they will host the prestigious Motocross of Nations in just a few years. Mr. Luongo commented like it’s likely next year’s World Motocross Championship will start in Australia in May, and return for multiple events in the USA in September.

Next weekend’s MX Grand Prix race will be in France.
