2015 MXGP CALENDAR

All of the old familiar faces are back in the final MXGP calendar for 2015 as Valkenswaard and Uddevalla come back in for Russia and Finland. The second Argentinian GP was always going to be a probable no-go and makes room for the US GP @ Glen Helen. There are several date switches to accomodate the amendments, but teams and riders will be in a rush to get back from Glen Helen - the Nations is just one week later at Ernee. WMX starts as planned with two overseas trips, but they are spared the sand at Assen as the last round is switched to Loket, scene of this year's finale. The Vets take over the role of support class at the Dutch race. Click "More" for the full calendar.

US GP @ GLEN HELEN | 08.10.2014
US GP @ GLEN HELEN

It took exactly a week following the confirmation that Ryan Villopoto will contest the MXGP world series in 2015 for Youthstream president Giuseppe Luongo to confirm that Glen Helen will run the US GP in 2015 and 2016 prior to hosting the Motocross des Nations in 2017. Next year's GP will be on September 20. And, unlike the 2010/2011 events in Socal which were effectively a European GP plus KTM on US soil, it can be taken as read that the US subsiduaries of the Japanese Big Four have confirmed their willingness to compete.

VIVE LA FRANCE ! | 28.09.2014
VIVE LA FRANCE !

France have won the Motocross des Nations with a dominant Gautier Paulin, supported perfectly by Dylan Ferrandis and Steven Frossard. Tommy Searle topped MX2 but the event was gut-wrenching for the Brits; they were holding onto second overall in the team stakes in a battle royal with Belgium until Shaun Simpson's KTM broke a chain, leaving the door open for USA to salvage the podium at the death.

NAIL-BITER

NAIL-BITER<br />
   ... but Brits cruise to third !!!!

It was a nail-biting qualification at Kegums today as Belgium, USA and Australia all went into the Open race uncertain of a direct transfer to the main programme tomorrow. Victory for Kevin Strijbos eventually put Belgium on pole, while Australia were sweating to the finish with Matt Moss on the borderline, but USA, desperate for a finish after Jeremy Martin had crashed out of MX2, jaws dropped as Eli Tomac went down with Arnaud Tonus at turn one. By lap four he had dragged the States back into contention, but they have only eighth place pick of gate tomorrow. The British trio of Shaun Simpson, Tommy Searle and Dean Wilson rode securely all day to earn third pick and the team contest is clearly between our boys, Belgium, France and USA.

DUEL OF THE CENTURY
.... Tixier defeats Herlings in the Mexican desert

DUEL OF THE CENTURY<br />
 .... Tixier defeats Herlings in the Mexican desert<br />

It was the title decider of all time ! After seeing his points advantage slashed to just five points after race one Jeffrey Herlings could have been forgiven for waving the white flag, but when the defending champion saw Jordi Tixier getting back off the ground from a first lap mid-air collision with Aleksandr Tonkov, the Bullit saw red, forgot his seven week old broken thigh and passed four riders in a lap to secure 7th, with Tixier just one ahead. And he defied medical science to stay there for 30 minutes - right up until Tixier finally annexed the third place he needed for the title with an equally stunning ride. Hail King Jordi, but respect for the toppled monarch !

JEFFREY HERLINGS ON HIS WAY
... to the showdown in Leon ! | 10.09.2014
JEFFREY HERLINGS ON HIS WAY<br />
  ... to the showdown in Leon !

Even mechanic Rami Fält was awaiting the call from Jeffrey Herlings to say he was on his way to Mexico this weekend, but 20 minutes ago the Dutch still teenager - he'll be 20 on Friday - had not been given medical clearance. So Leon on Sunday will now be the showdown everyone has been waiting for between the Bullit and Jordi Tixier. Leading by 23 points, the defending champion needs 27 points - a 7th and an 8th - if the Frenchie wins both motos, less depending on the result. Only Herlings can wrap it in moto one - he needs to head his rival across the line by one place in the top four, by two places if lower-placed. Let's go !

NO FAVOURS FOR TIXIER
... Romain Febvre wins in Brazil | 07.09.2014
NO FAVOURS FOR TIXIER<br />
  ... Romain Febvre wins in Brazil

Romain Febvre gave Husqvarna its first GP win under KTM ownership after two dramatic motos at Trindade in which Jordi Tixier was made to fight for every point and, after a 5-4 day, still trails Jeffrey Herlings by 23 points going into the Mexican showdown at Leon next weekend. The defending world champion can thus control his own destiny; if he can score 27 points or more in Leon, then even a double win will not help Tixier. What a climax to the GP campaign !

HERLINGS OUT OF BRAZIL

HERLINGS OUT OF BRAZIL<br />
   UPDATED

Jeffrey Herlings will not be in Brazil, but even team staff on the road were in the dark this morning ! Jordi Tixier was at Guarulhos Airport in Sao Paulo this morning: "I don't know. Nobody told me anything. I'll wait and see if he's at the gate on Sunday."" Herlings mechanic Rami Falt was on the hopper to Goiania. What you doing this weekend, Rami ? "Who knows ?" If Tixier, 57 points back, can win the two remaining GPs this weekend in Brazil and next weekend in Mexico, then Herlings will need to podium in Leon; but four tenths would have clinched it if he rode both and the likelihood of that happening had been growing by the day. But KTM confirmed at dinnertime that he will not there and the word in the street now is that the Dutch teenager has an infection in his leg ... and might not even make Mexico ! The suspense grows.


JEFFREY HERLINGS IN BRAZIL ? | 28.08.2014
JEFFREY HERLINGS IN BRAZIL ?

Jeffrey Herlings' flights are booked for Mexico, but could the MX2 world champion already be on the plane to Brazil next week ? "The reha is progressing well, the doctors are amazed at the speed of Jeffrey's recovery and his plane ticket is booked for the final GP in Mexico," admitted KTM sports chief Pit Beirer this week. "Nothing is yet planned for Brazil, but I cannot rule it out." Read on ...

MAX WINS AT LAST | 03.08.2014
MAX WINS AT LAST

After a season of appalling mechanical misfortune Max Anstie has finally won his first GP at Lommel. He repeated his runaway win from Saturday qualification in the first moto, and second to Jordi Tixier in race two clinched the overall honours for Mighty Max and Steve Dixon's BikeIt Cosworth Yamaha team. Jeffrey Herlings was watching as the Frenchman's 3-1 day has narrowed the gap on series leader to 57 points with two GPs remaining.
