MX 1 – Belgian Suzuki racer Clement Desalle won today’s Latvian Motocross Grand Prix with moto finishes of 1/2. World MX1 Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli finished second overall today, with a fourth in the first moto, and the win in the second moto. Former World MX Champion Steve Ramon rode to third overall via consistent 3/3 finishes.

Tony, from Italy, and racing for Red Bull KTM, leads Clement in the championship points chase by 61 points, as the world championship series heads next weekend to Sweden for Round 10.

From Grand Prix winner Clement Desalle, courtesy of Suzuki: “I was close to winning here last year so I am glad I could do it this time. To take the GP is really good, but I wanted to win that second moto as well – but Antonio was too fast. I concentrated on my lines and did not want to make any mistakes. The first moto win was good, and I saw Bobryshev getting tired towards the end, so I pushed hard and knew that I was taking seconds on him each lap. No crashes, my shoulder feels very strong and a lot of points – it was a good weekend.”

MX 2 – Jeffrey Herlings, only 15 years of age, and from the Netherlands racing for KTM, won the MX2 Grand Prix with moto finishes of 3/1. Second overall, and now a ‘seasoned veteran’ at age 16, German rider Ken Roczen finished second overall on the day. World MX2 Champion Marvin Musquin, from France, finished fourth overall, but maintains a healthy lead in the 250 point standings.

KTM has a quote from young Mr. Herlings regarding his second MX GP win: “I’m really satisfied with my weekend. I’ve had my ups and downs this season. I started really good in the first five rounds then I had three bad rounds so it felt awesome to be back on top again. This was my second GP win. In the first heat I was in the lead after two corners and then I got passed by Marvin and Ken (Roczen) and I finished third. Then I took the hole shot in the second and I had a long fight with Steven (Frossard) but I fought hard and I was able to win the moto and the GP.”

News is out the Ken Roczen will race AMA Supercross in 2011 if the expected rule change is put into effect, allowing younger riders to race professionally in the USA.

450 Moto 1 – Andrew Short is the leader on the first lap! Andrew’s lead is short-lived though … he falls on second lap. Supercross Champion, and current 450 Motocross points leader Ryan Dungey takes over the lead! Then, Josh Grant comes charging by Ryan and he takes over the lead!

It’s Josh Grant leading, Ryan Dungey second, Brett Metcalfe is third …. followed by Thomas Hahn, Kyle Cunningham, Ben Townley, and Kyle Chisholm. Short is in 9th. Chad Reed is in 11th, Mike Alessi 12th. The top guys are running lap times in the 2 minute 11 second range.

It was hot earlier in the day, but as this moto starts, the temp is just right, it is a high overcast, with a few drops of rain.

As the moto goes on, the running order on the beautiful prepared Thunder Valley Motocross track – Josh Grant, Ryan Dungey, Thomas Hahn, Brett Metcalfe, K Cunningham, Townley, Chisholm, Reardon, Short in ninth, then Kyle Regal and Reed and Alessi 11th and 12th.

12 laps in, Christophe Pourcel is out front and looking smooth … pulling ever-so-slowly away from team-mate Dean Wilson. Third is Canard, fourth is now Tyla Rattray, then Wharton, Tickle, Davalos, Tomac, Cole Seely, Max Anstie .. and Jake Weimer has moved up to 11th. Barcia is 17th.

Second is team-mate Dean Wilson, then Trey Canard, Tyla Rattray, Broc Tickle, Blake Wharton, Eli Tomac, Martin Davalos, Cole Seely, and Jake Weimer comes all the way up to 10th. Then Alex Martin, Max Anstie, and Vince Friese. Barcia gets 16th position.

The running order on the third lap is: Andrew Short first, Ryan Dungey second, Ben Townley, Kyle Regal, Brett Metcalfe, Thomas Hahn, Mike Alessi, Kyle Chisholm, Chad Reed and Matt Moss. Josh Grant is 30th.

On lap four, Ryan Dungey moves swiftly past Short and into first position. Now running Dungey, Short, Townley, Regal, Metcalfe, Hahn, Alessi, Chisholm, Reed. Grant is up to 18th!

At the eight lap mark – Dungey out front, now Townley into second, then Short, Metcalfe, Alessi, Regal, Chisholm, Reed, Brayton, Dan Reardon, and Josh Grant up to 11th!



On lap 11 – Dungey leading Townley by almost 15 seconds. Short third. Metcalfe fourth. Then Alessi, Regal, Reed, Chisholm, Brayton, Reardon, and Josh Grant.



Another 16 lap race, and … it’s Ryan Dungey with the win! And the overall victory! He extends his 450 Motocross series points leader as well!



Top ten in this moto – Dungey, Townley, Short, Metcalfe, Alessi, Regal, Reed, Chisholm, Brayton, Grant 10th!

Regarding the point standings, Dungey has a nice point lead over the new second position racer – Brett Metcalfe. And look at the battle in points between Short, Grant, and Townley!

Ben Townley commented it’s the first time he’s been on the podium in AMA Motocross since 2007.

Ryan Dungey said he’s really enjoying racing in the 450 class. He also talked about next week’s race at Red Bud – great dirt, great elevation changes, great crowd, always fun.

250 Moto 2 – It’s Trey Canard with the hole-shot! At the end of one lap, it’s Trey Canard in first, Blake Wharton second, Dean Wilson third, followed by Tyla Rattray, Christophe Pourcel, Vince Friese, Jake Weimer, Eli Tomac, Justin Barcia, and Matt Lemoine tenth.

On the eighth lap, it’s Canard leading Christophe Pourcel by just a few bike lengths. Dean Wilson is about 5 seconds behind those two. Then Wharton, Rattray, Barcia, Tickle, Tomac, Davalos, Friese, Seely.

It’s starting to get very cloudy, and very windy … but it’s great motocross!



Christophe Pourcel, after 16 laps, has won this race, and the overall victory, and, extends his 2010 250 MX points lead!



Second in this moto goes to Trey Canard, then Dean Wilson, Tyla Rattray, Blake Wharton, Broc Tickle, Justin Barcia, Martin Davalos, Eli Tomac, and Darryn Durham.

Look at the 250 point standings – Pourcel has a commanding lead, but those top three are all part of the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Racing Team (Pourcel, Wilson, Rattray).

Christophe Pourcel commented that is was a great day for him. He got good starts, he won both motos – all good!

Moto 1 – Ashley Fiolek, the defending National Motocross Champion, with the early lead. But she’s involved in a crash! It’s Jessica Patterson now leading … S Price is second, then S Whitmore, A Pearson, V Golden, S Kaneshiro, J Strong, A Boham, P Cyrus, and tenth is Tatum Sik.

Jessica Patterson is leading by almost 30 seconds, and wins this first moto. S Price second. J Strong third, then T Geiger with a nice ride for fourth, and Fiolek comes all the way back to fifth. Then Whitmore, Balbi, Pearson, V Golden, T Sik, Kaneshiro and Cook. Shout out to J Ives – 16th!

Moto 2 – as the ladies lined up for their second moto – the wind, rain, and lighting started up big-time. Especially the wind. The start of the race was delayed, hoping the weather would improve. But at 5:42pm, they are lined up at the gate and taking off! Well …. it looks like maybe they are going to take off – it is not only extremely windy, and potentially dangerous with lightning, it has started to rain incredibly hard. Really hard!

At 5:50pm, in a pouring rain storm, thunder, lightning and wind – the girls take off for their second race!

The leader – number 2 on her Yamaha – Jessica Patterson! Second is S Price, then M Balbi, A Boham, P Cyrus, …. Fiolek is 27th.

Lightning and rain are making for some problems getting our electronics working 100% here : )

Jessica Patterson did sweep both motos, and win the overall. Defending Women’s National Motocross Champion Ashley Fiolek finished second overall.

Jessica Patterson said she’s really thankful for her opportunities and team this year, and that things couldn’t be better. Being on her new team and all the positive people around her inspire her and improve her confidence.

Guglielmino Promoted to SVP, Programming & Global X. as X Games Franchise moves from ESPN content to programming

Scott Guglielmino, a 17-year ESPN veteran, who has played a vital role in ESPN’s company wide efforts on the 2010 FIFA World Cup, has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Programming and Global X. In his new position, Guglielmino, who previously has worked on the X Games, will be responsible for all aspects of the Global X franchise and will continue to oversee the company’s U.S. soccer strategy. He had been a vice president, programming & acquisitions, since 2004.

Under the new structure, the X Games franchise returns to its programming roots and becomes part of ESPN’s programming arm. The X Games had been managed by ESPN Enterprises since 2007.

“The X Games launched in 1994 out of the Programming department, and since then have become synonymous with innovation and forward thinking at our company and throughout the sports world. So many people in every corner of ESPN have nurtured this franchise over the years, and we have collectively established a preeminent brand in the action sports arena. I am looking forward to this exciting, new challenge and happy for the opportunity to work with the talented team in place to move the franchise forward” said Guglielmino.

Reporting to Guglielmino will be Chris Stiepock and Rick Alessandri from Global X Events and Development and Brian Kweder from Programming.

Biography: Guglielmino originally started at ESPN in 1993 as a freelance statistics coordinator for College GameDay, and in November was hired as a full-time screener. Through the past 17 years, he has been promoted to planner, senior planner, director and vice president.

Guglielmino directed the return of NASCAR to ESPN and ABC in 2007 across ESPN’s multimedia assets, including television, Internet, radio, print, broadband and wireless. His areas of responsibility include daily interaction with all entities: event and studio production, customer marketing and sales, affiliate sales and marketing, consumer marketing, research, legal, communications and finance.

Since 1998, he was a major contributor in the decision to televise the highly successful FIFA Women’s World Cup in 1999, and he will continue to oversee network plans for the FIFA World Cup and FIFA Women’s World Cup tournaments, as ESPN and ABC Sports have maintained rights for these properties through 2014.

Guglielmino played a key role in ESPN’s 2005 acquisition of the Monday Night Football franchise and coordinated the company’s negotiation preparation for both ESPN and ABC Sports.

Guglielmino also has overseen brand extension efforts for ESPN’s Winter and Summer X Games, which have enabled ESPN to establish the leading global action sports brand, and has been involved in ESPN Content Development, formerly ESPN Original Entertainment.

Guglielmino graduated in 1992 from the University of Connecticut with a bachelor’s degree in communications science. A native and resident of Cheshire, Conn., Guglielmino continues to lend his expertise to the Parks & Recreation department in his hometown, where he helped create a local skate park.
