STEWART BAN CONFIRMED | 30.04.2015
STEWART BAN CONFIRMED

The 16 month ban imposed on James Stewart by the FIM Disciplinary Commission has been confirmed by the International Court of Arbitration for Sport, a chamber legally binding on ALL sports worldwide. The CAS panel noted that Stewart “did not take any precautions whatsoever” to avoid the anti-doping rule violation and described the attitude of Mr James Stewart, Jr. towards the FIM Anti-doping Code (CAD) as being “one of reckless disregard”. CAS stressed that the sanction imposed by the CDI Single Judge was determined “after a rigorous examination of all material before it” and that the CDI handed down a “closely reasoned decision”. The ban ends at midnight on August 11.

THE EMPIRE HITS BACK

After a week of sand testing with new motors from Japan Gautier Paulin took a double win for HRC at Valkenswaard with Evgernyx Bobryshev fourth, but it is Max Nagl who leads the world after going 2-2. Clement Desalle got a podium on his bogey track, but Toni Cairoli has lost contact to the world leaders after being one of the big crashers in the opening moto and only managing 7th in race two at a track where he has won for five straight years. No problem in MX2 for Jeffrey Herlings as he made it six out of six at the Eurocircuit.

PAULIN WINS QUALI | 25.04.2015
PAULIN WINS QUALI

Gautier Paulin finally got a result this year when he won MXGP qualification at the Eurocircuit. The Frenchman led all the way to give HRC their second straight quali win, but the track isn't rough yet and Toni Cairoli didn't look too concerned about avoiding the compulsory press conference for the pointless Saturday win :D Shaun Simpson held down third until a late error dropped him to fifth, Max Nagl was 7th after an untypically show start, world leader Clement Desalle was 11th after eating dirt on lap one and Tommy Searle crossed the line 14th. MX2 at Valkenswaard ? Who else ?

KIMI & SAMI IN VALKENSWAARD | 24.04.2015
KIMI & SAMI IN VALKENSWAARD

Prominent visit and mutual respect this afternoon in Valkenswaard as Ferrari F1 star Kimi Räikkonen, hot of finishing 2nd last week in Bahrain, chilled out this afternoon in the relaxing surroundings of the IceOne Husqvarna awning together with ex-Liverpool FC star Sami Hyypiä, Giuseppe Luongo and his charming wife Ursula. MXGP supremo Luongo, the man who has turned MXGP into a truly global series in recent years, expressed his gratitude to the Finnish F1 champion: "We are delighted that you have shown such interest to support our sport and wish you further success." Kimi's IceOne team has even upstaged the Cairoli-Villopoto hype so far this year as Max Nagl has raced the blue-yellow rocket to three wins in the first four GPs.

TOMMY SEARLE BACK ON TRACK | 17.04.2015
TOMMY SEARLE BACK ON TRACK

Tommy Searle is back on the GP trail at Arco di Trento this weekend: "I got the all-clear at the start of the week so I flew straight down to Rome and have been out on the bike twice. I'm obviously not 100% up to speed but I've been able to carry on with my physical training on the gym so I should be OK physically, and I'm happier making my comeback here than next week in Valkenswaard or waiting three weeks for Spain; in fact getting race practice and starts with no pressure here and next week should set me up to be able to race up front at Talavera and Matterley."

HERLINGS JUMPS SHIP | 29.03.2015
HERLINGS JUMPS SHIP

Fear not, the Dutch youngster is not quitting KTM or the GP scene but he did quite literally jump ship this afternoon as teammate Pauls Jonass inadvertently clipped his rear wheel over a massive table in race one of the Argentine GP. Relatively unscatched but with broken bars he could not continue, but struck back two hours later to retain the MX2 red plate, although Dylan Ferrandis is now level on points after his maiden GP win. Max Nagl won MXGP to move second to Clement Desalle in the points after they shared the motos. Toni Cairoli completed the podium as the trio saw off Ryan Villopoto.

"THIS IS HOW MOTOCROSS SHOULD BE !"

"THIS IS HOW MOTOCROSS SHOULD BE !"<br />
   in Villa La Angostura<br />

A fabulous track and organisation, and thrills all the way. Adam Sterry pulled a massive holeshot on his GP qualification debut before going down at turn two, but the lead was already gone as Thomas Covington dived underneath the Brit and Jeffrey Herlings, out of nowhere - look where he is at turn one !!!!! - punted the American to one side to storm away for a 22 second win over teammate Pauls Jonass. Max Anstie was 7th, Sterry 18th and Ben Watson a non-starter after hearing noises on the way to the gate. Toni Cairoli put his stamp on MXGP; the champion knew he needed to make a pass stick quickly on the 450 of holeshot king Max Nagl at the horsepower course but had to stay focused for a narrow win as Ryan Villopoto surged into his wheeltracks. Shaun Simpson got 10th ahead of Nathan Watson. "This is how motocross should be", declared Dave Nicoll, and no-one was going to argue !

READY FOR THE ACTION | 28.03.2015
READY FOR THE ACTION

Half an hour after daybreak and there are already a thousand spectators waiting for the action to begin at Villa La Angostura. The queue to the track was already three miles @ 7.30am; already taking bets who's gonna miss first practice. And it's only Saturday !

ANDES ADVENTURES | 16.03.2015
ANDES ADVENTURES

Our friend Oscar Piva, local press officer for next week's Argentine GP, has sent us some photos of the work going on at Villa La Angostura ... and the track, carved out of the Andes foothills above the glorious Naheuel Huapi lake, looks magic with elevation and obstacles of every kind on a sandy surface. Who says overseas GP tracks are monotone ? Anyone expecting a heatwave can think again; annual high temperatures 2500 feet above sea level are around 70 degrees and daytime temperatures in the Argentinian autumn are currently only around 60 F with nights cooling to around 40 F, so everyone had better pack a woolly vest. Locals will ensure full 40 rider grids and it is to be hoped that the long range forecast holds as sunshine is predicted for race day, but storms for the day after !

IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY | 08.03.2015
IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY

Maiden GP win for RV2, first moto of the year for TC#222, red plate for the Panda, Thai hospital for Tommy again, 100% record for the Bullit, top six for Mel P, hottest GP since 1996, it was all happening at Nakhonchaisri today on a track which may have been lacking in character but got as rough as they come.
