HERLINGS HURT AGAIN | 05.07.2015
HERLINGS HURT AGAIN

Jeffrey Herlings defied his broken collarbone, rib and back injury from Teutschenthal to win the first moto at Uddevalla, but the Dutch youngster got no further than the exit from turn one in race before slithering to the ground. A full medical report is still awaited but the initial diasgnosis is a dislocated little finger and a deep cut in his left hand. Tim Gajser completed his hat-trick of GP victories and is now just 78 down with seven GPs to go asnd his fellow podium placemen from Switzerland, Valentin Guillod and Jeremy Seewer asre 88 and 112 back respectively.

TIXIER STAYS GREEN IN 2016/2017 | 04.07.2015
TIXIER STAYS GREEN IN 2016/2017

Jordi Tixier will stay Green throughout 2016/2017 after signing to join the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team for his first two seasons of MXGP racing. Age-capped out of MX2 as he turns 23 in November, the 2014 world champion is one of the keys as KRT rebuilds after being devastated by injury this summer. "This season Kawasaki offered me a good opportunity to join the team, and it's a great pleasure for me to stay involved with the brand for my move to the MXGP class. I know that I will have the full support from the factory and I’m sure we’ll do a great job together; for sure it is the best option for me amongst all the offers that I received." An annoucement on the other new rider at KRT is not expected before the end of September; wonder who that could be ? ;-)

NANNY STATE | 04.07.2015
NANNY STATE

The UK nanny state, fronted by overzealous doctors and jobsworth insurers, struck in Sweden today when the ACU withdrew permission for Charlie Hamlet to contest EMX2 qualification after being knocked out last weekend at the Blaxhall Maxxis. "It would have been nice if they'd let us know before the early hours of Thursday morning," fumed Charlie's dad Andy. "When do they think you set off to get to Sweden on a Friday ?" While one can understand the concern for the welfare of the competitors, a 12 day blanket riding ban would appear to way over the top, particularly as Hamlet was never examined by the event CMO, and an ACU official in Sweden did admit that there is no precise ruling on the duration of a "Med Stop" but back in the day a 24 hour time-out was considered sufficient. Charlie was examined and given the all-clear at Uddevalla by both the Chief Medical Officer and the Italian federation doctor, but the Brit was still precluded from competing as the necessary ACU paperwork had been withdrawn and all attempts to have that decision rescinded came to nought as Rugby office staff had gone home for the weekend.

MAX NAGL IN HOSPITAL | 20.06.2015
MAX NAGL IN HOSPITAL

In the latest twist in the 2016 MXGP dramas the series, only just entering its second half, has been blown wide open as red plate holder Max Nagl went down at turn four in qualification of his home GP at Teutschenthal today and has been taken to hospital for further medical investigation on his left foot and ankle. David Philippaerts was unable to avoid the stricken Husky and has a injured shoulder, Toni Cairoli gritted his teeth to finish 11th with Romain Febvre second to Evgeny Bobryshev and Shaun Simpson 6th. MX2 leader Jeffrey Herlings and Max Anstie had to storm back through the pack for 10th & 6th from separate first lap dramas with the win going to Tim Gajser.

SHAUN SIMPSON 3RD IN MAGGIORA QUALI | 13.06.2015
SHAUN SIMPSON 3RD IN MAGGIORA QUALI

Shaun Simpson stormed to a stunning third place behind series leader Max Nagl and the retro Yam of Jeremy Van Horebeek in quali at Maggiora this afternoon as the rain held off all day. Clement Desalle withdrew after timed training as his knee was simply not up to it, while Toni Cairoli walked away from a big first lap get-off after holeshotting but may have an arm injury. MX2 was an all-the-way win for Jeffrey Herlings as Max Anstie exited fifth two laps from the end. Ten minutes after quali ended it started to rain; tomorrow could be a whole different ball game !

LE RETOUR DE VILLARS | 29.05.2015
LE RETOUR DE VILLARS

This weekend sees the return of top grade action to Villars-sous-Ecot. The track in the shadow of the Besancon-Mulhouse autoroute A36 initially witnessed GP racing on the same weekend Dave Thorpe made his world debut in 1982 and was the scene of one of the most enthralling Nations of all time six years later when Jean-Michel Bayle beat Jeff Ward for 125 honours, but Ron Lechien led the US to their 8th straight team victory. A supermoto facility, which doubles as MXGP paddock, has replaced part of the 80s track, but the interesting half remains, and the weather shoulds stay fine as Toni Cairoli and Valentin Guillod, the latter in what is virtually a "home" GP, aim for hat-tricks. Stay tuned.

MANTOVA FOR BRAZIL | 22.05.2015
MANTOVA FOR BRAZIL

It is now official that the Brazilian GP in August, finally cancelled a fortnight ago, will be replaced by a third GP in Italy with the schedule moved back one week to August 22/23. The replacement GP will be called the GP of Lombardia and will take place at Mantova. The switch of date cause a headache for ACU Events as they will now need to reschedule the Maxxis round at Fat Cat, but reserve dates were already pencilled in pre-season for this eventuality.

FACTORY KAWI FOR PETAR PETROV

Just one week before the British GP Petar Petrov has sensationally quit the Hitachi Revo KTM team to join thre Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team for the remainder of the season as stand-in for the injured Dylan Ferrandis. Jean Jacques Luisetti, the 20 year old Bulgarian's new boss, claimed: "We had to make a fast decision as we want to deliver our partners and sponsors three riders at the start gate for the next GP." It will be Petar's second term in an official team as he rode for Rockstar Suzuki in 2013, but it will be the first time that he has full factory material at his disposal.

ADAM STERRY STILL LEADS

ADAM STERRY STILL LEADS<br />
   but only just :(

Adam Sterry retained his the series lead in the Euro MX2 series this evening at Talavera with 11th place after all of the Brits had shocking start. Maxime Desprey took his third moto win of the series but stays third on points, still 15 back from the Wilvo Forkrent teamster, but Adam only leads on most wins countback from Nick Kouwenberg, the consistent Dutchman who has finished top four in every moto to date. Toni Cairoli topped MXGP quali for the first time this year after holeshotting on his 450 debut, but Jeffrey Herlings needed until the final lap to pass Thomas Covington to maintain his 100% record in MX2 quali.

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.
