"GOOD" FRIDAY :( | 18.04.2014
"GOOD" FRIDAY :(

The difficulties facing the YS crew as they prepare for this weekend's Bulgarian GP are immense. Even though it has hardly rained for 24 hours, the lack of sun and dampness in the atmosphere means that the Sevlievo track has hardly dried. Earth-moving equipment is being foiled by the slightest incline and even a bulldozer on tracks failed to get up the take-off side of the tabletop where a Monster bridge was waiting to be pulled upright. The combination eventually got up the landing slope .... but torrential rain is forecast for this afternoon and, with five classes listed, a drastically curtailed Saturday programme is on the cards.

RED PLATE FOR NAT KANE | 13.04.2014
RED PLATE FOR NAT KANE

A hardpack track littered with pebbles was a real challenge to the world elite as the GPs finally hit Europe with round 4 of 18 at Arco in northern Italy. Jeffrey Herlings showed guts and restraint to return to racing with the MX2 win which left the world champion ten back from series leader Arnaud Tonus with second moto winner Glenn Coldenhoff only six back from the Swiss ace. Clement Desalle headed a Belgian 1-2-3 podium in MXGP after first moto winner Gautier Paulin's Kawasaki ground to a halt. HM Plant KTM fielded the top Brit in each class with Shaun Simpson 7th in MXGP, Mel Pocock 12th in the second MX2 moto ... but the star of the team was Nat Kane, the new holder of the WMX red plate !

SWISS RUN RIOT | 12.04.2014
SWISS RUN RIOT

The Swiss ran riot in MX2 qualifying @ Arco with three men in the first seven ... and the winner ! But it was Euro champ Valentin Guillod who outran the lot rather than red plate holder Arnaud Tonus, who was 4th. Jeremy Seewer completed the Alpine joy in 7th. Jeffrey Herlings was 3rd behind Romain Febvre, Max Anstie, still on the 2013 Dixon Yam after trying the 2014 in practice, was 6th and Mel Pocock 9th. Steven Frossard headed MX1 from Toni Cairoli with Jake Nicholls 6th, but Shaun Simpson was 20th after an off on lap one.

ARNAUD TONUS NEW LEADER | 30.03.2014
ARNAUD TONUS NEW LEADER

Arnaud Tonus is the new MX2 red plate holder. The ex-Maxxis champion took his first GP win with a 1-2 scorecard to move into a two point lead from second moto winner Glenn Coldenhoff. Max Antie cvompleted the podium to advance to seventh in the table. Toni Cairoli was in a class of his own in MXGP and already has a 30 point series lead.

HOFF, MAX OR ARNAUD ? | 29.03.2014
HOFF, MAX OR ARNAUD ?

Dylan Ferrandis was the quick boy in the morning, but when it came to racing in MX2 Glenn Coldenhoff, Max Anstie and Arnaud Tonus were the boys. The Hoff made it past fast-starting Aleksandr Tonkov and Jose Butron first, but Max Anstie, having chosen to race the 2013 carb motor, and Arnaud Tonus were seconds a lap faster at the end. Was the Hoff sandbagging ? Tomorrow we will know. Mel Pocock was 13th, Kevin Strijbos and Clement Desalle made it a perfect day for Suzuki with 1-2 in MXGP, Shaun Simpson was 6th, passed on the last lap by Toni Cairoli as the champion made to many mistakes trying to make the difference, and Jake Nicholls was 10th. And will it rain tomorrow ?

THE CHASE IS ON | 29.03.2014
THE CHASE IS ON

Jeffrey Herlings is not in Brazil, and the chase for the MX2 red plate is on. Only previous GP winnewr in the field is 2013 Matterley winner Glen Coldenhoff, but everyone was a second a half down on Dylan Ferrandis in free training at Beto Carrero this morning. Mel Pocock and Max Anstie were playing it cool for 12th and 13th time. MXGP followed championship form with Toni Cairoli tops in front of Gautier Paulin and Jeremy Van Horebeek with Shaun Simpson fourth and Jake Nicholls 7th. Incidentally MXGP has a full grid of 30 !

TOMMY SEARLE HOME AFTER SUCCESSFUL OPERATION

Tommy Searle of Team CLS Kawasaki Monster Energy is back home after a successful operation on his broken wrist in Thailand; he will be replaced by Dutchman Herjan Brakke in Brazil on March 30/31. Tommy is expected to be out of action for six weeks, so he should be back on track for the British GP at Matterley Basin on May 24/25.

KTM DOUBLE UP IN THAILAND | 09.03.2014
KTM DOUBLE UP IN THAILAND

KTM world domination was reestablished in Thailand as Toni Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings destroyed the opposition on a rough, tough Sri Racha track to each score a double victory and leave Asia with the red plate. Max Anstie led the second moto for half the race to podium alongside Herlings and Glenn Coldenhoff, while Clement Desalle and Jeremy Van Horebeek went 2-3 behind Cairoli each time. But Livi Lancelot was THE heroine as she grabbed a point in the second MX2 moto as the boys dropped like flies.


SHAUN SIMPSON TOP BRIT IN THAILAND QUALI | 08.03.2014
SHAUN SIMPSON TOP BRIT IN THAILAND QUALI

Dylan Ferrandis handed out another defeat to Jeffrey Herlings in MX2 qualification at Sri Racha, but the Dutch teenager had been on another planet in training and raced to second in the 20+2 race despite losing a goggle lens on lap three. Max Anstie, who blew another motor in timed training, was 5th. But top Brit on the day was Shaun Simpson, a magnificent fourth to Cairoli, Desalle and Van Horebeek in MXGP with Tommy Searle 5th. Jake Nicholls goes to the gate 13th, Mel Pocock 16th in MX2.

KARRO HOLESHOT TRIBUTE | 05.03.2014
KARRO HOLESHOT TRIBUTE

We're a few days down the road from the GP opener in Qatar, but it's never too late to celebrate Matiss Karro's holeshot on the Wilvo Forkrent KTM 350 against all of the factory big guns. A clear run undoubtedly helped the Latvian - only Gautier Paulin of the factory boys is still fully committed in the photo above - but take a look at the shot below and you will see that the ever-observant Toni Cairoli has already seen where the danger lies; that's what makes him a champ !
