ROCKSTAR | 05.10.2017

Max Anstie got a Rockstar reception every lap through two motos at Matterley on Sunday .... and he truly deserved it after twice destroying the best in the world. Even The Bullet had nothing for him at the end of the final moto, Romain Febvre got the shock of his life when Max came back at him after slipping off ... and those early laps in race one on a rugged track when Max went away at THREE seconds a lap .... just amazing ! And who expected it ? Me for one ... and for the Sunday morning doubter who suggested I'd better stay off the weed ... get real ! Because Max was FOR REAL on Sunday.

NO BARRIERS | 29.09.2017

All you hear and see on the Lügenpresse every day are tales of conflict and hate, but the Motocross des Nations is one of the few arenas to build friendship. Israelis and Iranians are poised to race each other at Matterley Basin tomorrow .... and second and third in the press room this morning, sitting together as friends were lads from the Russian and Ukrainian teams. And the British weather ? YS deputy president David Luongo with a laugh and a smile: "At least it only seems to rain in the night :D"


Clement Desalle's season is over; the Belgian suffered a broken C6 vertebra without displacement when he crashed out of the first moto at Assen: "I'm disappointed as I can't finish the championship and fight for the top three in the series, but I'm also glad as my doctor confirmed to me that I will have no further trouble with my vertebrae in the future. I feel pretty lucky as it was a big crash; the sand was wet and heavy due to the rain and I went over the bars and hit the ground pretty hard; I had feeling in all my limbs and could move them, but I had a lot of pain in my back." He will be replaced by Kevin Strijbos at the Nations.

BRIAN BOGERS TO HRC | 23.08.2017

Tim Gajser's new sidekick at HRC in 2018 will be Brian Bogers !
The MXGP paddock has been left scratching its head as to the identity of the replacement for Evgeny Bobryshev since the Russian was advised his services would no longer be required next year; it was known that the HRC newcomer would be upgrading from MX2, but nobody had the 20 year old Dutch youngster on the radar. Key to the deal is HSF Logistics, the high-profile Dutch team which has been KTM's MX2 factory support team for the last two seasons but will go Red in 2018 as HRC title sponsor.

THE THIRD MAN | 12.08.2017

The US team for the Nations is finalised ! In keeping with tradition Roger De Coster presented his team prior to racing at Unadilla at midday today .. with two Husky riders ! US champion-to-be Zach Osborne will take the MX2 ride, while GP regular Thomas Covington slots in for the Open class ride aboard a 450. Honda's Cole Seely, the only US 450 regular interested in riding, will take the MX1 ride. Covington was initially slated to race the event for Puerto Rico, but Marshal Weltin will now join Justin Starling and Darian Sanayei. Thomas didn't exactly celebrate his selection in style; after an incident at turn one, he was only 11th in MX2 qualification at Frauenfeld.


Lommel gets a facelift for next week's Belgian GP ! Freddy Verherstraeten has turned the entire track round so that the field will blast past the main spectator gallery almost immediately after the start .... but in the other direction ! The start itself has been turned round by 90 degrees and pitlane resited so that the general public can see the riders leave the gate and round turn one; in recent years that view was only possible from the VIP. MXGP does need Joe Public after all ;-)


Jake Nicholls has announced his retirement from GP racing this afternoon after ten turbulent years chasing the dream around the world. Just 27, the amiable East Anglian, always up for a laugh and always with 100% engagement, dislocated his hip in April as he headed the MX1 Maxxis and he will continue to chase that elusive national title in 2018 alongside his ever-increasing involvement in the family businesses. We wish him the best of luck ... at home and in search of that elusive Maxxis. Scroll down to read Jake's own announcement.

IMOLA 2018

The 2018 MXGP finale will be held in Italy .... at Imola, the scene of the very first FIM championship GP 65 years ago. The date - 29/30 September. The Autodromo Enzo Ferrari park, right in the centre of town, also hosted the very first motocross in Italy as long ago as 1948, six years before the famous tarmac circuit was built, but has not been the scene of a motocross GP since 1965. The new circuit will be built between Paddock 2 and the Rivalli Hill.


All smiles in Russia from Arnaud Tonus and Jeremy Seewer as they took a double win for Switzerland in qualification at Orlyonok, but both boys had the forecast right as each declarted: "I just hope it doesn't rain too much tomorrow." It's been pissing it down since 5am and the ultra-fast raceway could be turned into a skating rink. Third Swiss Valentin Guillod wil not be affected; he's already on his way home with a fractured right hand from a first turn quali crash which also claimed Jeremy van Horebeek with a dislocated finger. First up this morning is EMX300 with Brad Anderson defending his 100% season after a clear win yesterday.

RUSSIAN RIVIERA | 02.06.2017

This is the Orylonok track whioch will host the next MXGP next weekend on the Russian Riviera. Bikes are in transit for four classes with around 30 expected to go to the line in MXGP, MX2 and EMX250 while even EMX300 now has 17 entries, 13 of whom scored in the Teutschenthal series opener. Sole Brits are Max Anstie, Conrad Mewse, Ben Watson and Brad Anderson.
