ALL CHANGE. ... AMENDED ..... AND MORE | 26.10.2017
ALL CHANGE. ... AMENDED ..... AND MORE

Booking sites were on fire last night after the FIM issued the latest version of Youthstream's 2018 GP calendar. There were no less than eleven amendments compared with the provisional calendar presented back in the summer, and those were not on the ball for rooms, flights or rentaracers could face spiraling prices and inconvenient travel. Some of the amendments - the switch of Sweden and Switzerland, back-to-back weekends in Indonesia, no US or Mexican GP - were known and merely needed confirming and their inclusion has meant Italy in June and Assen in September each being pulled forward a week, while Red Sand does the same to make room for Valkenswaard, the Dutch running a week before Easter to free the April date for Agueda. Most surprising amendment is Russia on May 1; yes, the GP will run on a Tuesday Bank Holiday with quali the day before. Keep the Red Flag flying and all that ! Anyway, the GP aces have just eleven free weekends between March and October. Note to Brussels: Russia will again host European championship racing, Turkey NOT !

AND MORE !!! Five days later Valkenswaard is now on March 18 and Red Sand back on the 25th !

STANK DAWG | 19.10.2017
STANK DAWG

No doubt what is the highlight of the weekend's Red Bull Straight Rhythm as Ryan Villopoto and Chad Reed have had their arm twisted to take on Ronnie Mac in the TWO-STROKE class, but Ronnie is not the only joker in the pack ! Ask any right-thinking folks who have attended a US National where he competes and they will confirm that Gared Steinke is THE MAN ! "Stank Dawg" races a smoker ... and makes the points ... against the 250Fs to the delight of any true MX fan and he has laid down the gauntlet this week with a joker post on Instagram, reminding them that HE is "the only one who actively races a 2-stroke; you guys are burnt out more than my roach". Completing the eight rider line-up are Mike Brown, Ryan Sipes, Ryan Morais and Jon Ames.

ROCKSTAR | 05.10.2017
ROCKSTAR

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

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"

SEASON OVER FOR CLEMENT DESALLE | 16.09.2017
SEASON OVER FOR CLEMENT DESALLE

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
BRIAN BOGERS TO HRC

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 THIRD MAN

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.

ABOUT TURN IN LOMMEL | 28.07.2017
ABOUT TURN IN LOMMEL

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 QUITS GPs

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.
