TEA & BISCUITS | 09.10.2015

Mail of the week from the FIM was to announce that Vito Ippolito and his buddies just had their first board meeting in the new FIM HQ, the boss declaring that it had been well worth spending mega bucks of your licence fees because "the efficient concept of the new building will help the staff to work more effectively and enable the FIM to make substantial savings. It also offers the possibility of hosting meetings with all the FIM stakeholders." Architect Antoine Robert-Grandpierre - wonder how much hew coined ? - reckoned "the idea was to design a pleasant and appropriate working environment to promote interaction and communication with openness, with clear views to the outside world. The circular building, imposing in terms of its general form, includes a continuous and open façade. This concept is also followed through inside, with the central spiral staircase at the heart of the building benefiting from an abundance of natural light that reflects an extended notion of the hallway where people can exchange ideas. From the inside of the building the concept is clearly one of transparency, but still with some level of privacy. The final part of the concept was to have this building sit in a park. The resulting trees and grass will give a green feeling around the building by next spring." Circular buildings always were space effective of course, wasting 21% externally, not to mention the "courtyard" wastage in the middle ... but if that, multiplied by horrendously high ground costs in Geneva, lets staff natter in the corridor, it's obviously worth it. I wonder when they'll be calling in Greg Atkins to make better use of the surrounding land than planting some poxy trees ? :P

.... broken shoulder blade for Max Anstie | 26.09.2015
   .... broken shoulder blade for Max Anstie

Britain are looking at 20th place in the Nations tomorrow after Max Anstie broke his shoulder blade when Pascal Rauchenecker, unable to avoid the Brit, jumped on his back as Max tried to bump start his KX250F downhill after stalling in a hilltop turn. Initial fears of a broken arm too were dismissed at the local hospital, but the Brit was almost lucky not to suffer more in a truly horrific incident. Already in the MXGP qualifier Shaun Simpson had lost third on the final lap when an errant Czech lapper jumped across him and the Scot went for a check on his left hand after wobbling home 12th, while Dean Wilson ensured the two Scots made the main programme with a 5th in the Open class: "I nearly got jumped on too. But at least we're still in the race. We can't win the Nations, but Shaun and me can go for individual gold in our classes." Ireland made the main event in 15th despite a first lap shock when Martin Barr went down, and France won all three motos, making the US and Belgium look sick. The crowd went wild, surprise, surprise !


Tim Gajser is the 2015 MX2 world champion. 167 years after the USA annexed California from Mexico the Slovenian teenager sank to his knees after being greeted by team and fans and hammered the Slovenian flag into the Glen Helen dirt. Does that mean he claims the Golden State for his tiny homeland, a country which wassn't even on the map 25 years ago ! LOL Well done, Tim .... or Tom Gasser as the announcer called him all weekend PMSL


Romain Febvre is the 2015 MXGP world champion. The class rookie claimed the title in style by running down Evgeny Bobryshev for the second moto win, and, with Gautier Paulin 4th behind Glen Coldenhoff and Shaun Simpson, that put him Le Petit Prince 100 points ahead with two GPs remaining and the most moto wins to split any potential tie. Shaun Simpson won his second GP of the month !

MAXIMUM MAX | 23.08.2015

Max Anstie remains unbeaten bar the Loket crash moto through the last two months after another two wins on race day at the GP of Lombardia. The 50 point maximum has hauled the Brit from 7th to 3rd in the table, but hzer still desperately needs somewone else to start taking points off Pauls Jonass and Tim Gajser after the teenagers shared 2-3 motos. With three GPs remaining the Latvian leads the Slovenian by 4 with Max a further 34 back. Oh, those 25 points cast away at Loket ..... :(

.... Tixier out | 23.08.2015
 .... Tixier out

Max Anstie continues his winning ways at Mantova. With his 15th victory in 16 races as he stormed past Jeremy Seewer and Valentin Guillod to win qualification - his only defeat came when he crashed out of the lead at Loket - the Brit again raised the barrier as the list of MX2 GP title candidates was reduced from six to five when Jordi Tixier dislocated two bones in his right wrist and was already on his way back to France in the evening as he frantically sought a surgeon to operate. Anstie: "There are no tactics. I'm 46 back. All I can do is keep putting in my laps and hope I can carry on winning !"

Britain wins FOUR out of five in Lommel | 01.08.2015
  Britain wins FOUR out of five in Lommel

Brits sensationally raced to four winds out of five today at Lommel ! Brad Anderson swept the 300 from out of nowhere, Jack Bintcliffe devastated the other kids in the 150s, Max Anstie led MX2 all the way and Shaun Simpson, the sole rider leaping the big quad but outrageously fast through the sandy bumps, swept from outside the top ten to pass all the other big names in MXGP. A typically shocking first lap cost Conrad Mewse the honours in the Euro 125s, but he too was on it from 31st to fifth. Britain ... kings of sand !!!

CLASS ACT | 26.07.2015

Romain Febvre is simply in a class of his own at present. Two more overwhelming victories at Loket have taken the MXGP rookie 81 clear of Gautier Paulin with Evgeny Bobryshev, effectively third, now 108 back. Mac Anstie was on a mission in MX2 again until he crashed out of the moto 2 lead, having already dominated the opener: "My hand came off the bars. I was too winded to carry on and the bike was bent, but it's still on. We've got three sand GPs coming up !" Max is still 7th in points, 62 off effective joint points leaders Tim Gajser & Valentin Guillod.

HERLINGS IS DONE | 25.07.2015

"When we're lucky it's 'only' a dislocated hip. It's either that or a broken femur." That was the sad news which KTM sports chief Pit Beirer reported after Jeffrey Herlings was rushed to hospital following an accident in the MX2 qualifier. The Dutch rider went down at turn one with, amongst others, Tim Gajser and Valentin Guillod, and was on a desperation surge back through the pack when he crashed out of 13th off the jump onto the start straight. An unsighted Jordi Tixier, a fourth lap faller, could not miss him and landed with full force on Herlings' legs. Cool runaway winner Max Anstie is now effectively just 65 points off the series lead with six GPs to run .... and Tim Gajser can't take his right foot off the footrest following his second race crash in Kegums a fortnight ago !

FRENCH FROLICS | 21.07.2015

It is now odds on that the MXGP title will be headed to France with the news this evening that Toni Cairoli will sit out the Czech GP at Loket this weekend and will not return to racing until given the medical all-clear: "It hasn't been any fun to race with an injury and not be able to fight for victory, although I always tried my best. I very much regret that I have to stop but unfortunately injuries are part of our sport and this is something we cannot do anything about. I will do everything I can to recover as soon as possible, and to be back on the bike and on the race track." Max Nagl will return at Loket but the German is already 97 points back from Romain Febvre, and the MXGP rookie's closest rival is now fellow Frenchie Gautier Paulin, 66 back with 6 to go.
