ST PADDY'S WEEKEND | 16.03.2018

So who's brave enough to bet against Roger Magee's Hitachi KTM team ... and in particular Graeme Irwin ... this weekend at Valkenswaard. The boy from Ballymena might find The Bullet a tad too fast around the Eurocircuit, but if the leprechauns get to work, anything is possible. Tomorrow's St Paddy's Day .... though of course every self-respecting leprechaun might be plastered on Sunday after an evening on the party mile at the Markt, so let's get quali sorted first. Go, Graeme, go ! :D

SAVE THE SWISS GP | 09.02.2018

A number of self-centred individuals, the sort whose sole intent in life is to deny the rest of the population enjoyment, are trying to prevent, against the will of the local authorities, the Swiss GP in August through legal procedure. A petition has been set up to fight their evil aims; you can sign it @
every signature counts !

OATs for 2018 | 22.12.2017
OATs for 2018

No, nothing to do with porridge or nuptials, here are the MXGP/MX2 OATS for 2018; 36 riders per class who are assured a start through 20 rounds of racing round the globe unless they get hurt. No surprises from the UK with Tommy Searle (MXGP) and Daria Sanayei (MX2) for Steve Dixon's Kawasaki squad, which reverts to BikeIt as title sponsor after the loss of Monster, and Graeme Irwin (MXGP) with Conrad Mewse (MX2) at Hitachi KTM. Rolling out for continental teams are Adam Sterry (F&H Kawasaki MX2), Ben Watson (Kemea Yamaha MX2), Max Anstie (Rockstar IceOne Husky MXGP) and Shaun Simpson (Wilvo Yamaha MXGP). One name is still tbc at Assomotor, but it should be Arminas Jasikonis, indeed the only riders seeking a ride from last year's 28 in either class to go empty-handed are Evgeny Bobryshev and Damon Graulus. Of interest to note is what appears to be confirmation that Jorge Prado will join Toni Cairoli in the De Carli awning, with Glenn Coldenhoff switching to the factory tent alongside Jeffrey Herlings and Pauls Jonass. The friendly in-house battle lines at KTM are drawn :/

LE RETOUR | 19.11.2017

Supercross returned to Paris last night with a bang, packing the brand-new U Arena rugby stadium ion La Defence. It was NOT Bercy - nothing can ever replace Bercy, now just a memory - but European SX started a new era with the first successful US-style major league SX since Amsterdam in the early 80s. It was a good job for Monster, Honda and Yamaha that they sponsored the event, because they once again got wiped out by Mattighofen as Marvin Musquin for Red Bull KTM and Zach Osborne and Dean Wilson for Rockstar Husky dominated. Indeed all three US Hondas bit out, Jeremy Martin not even making the evening programme on Saturday with a wrist injury.

LONG HAUL | 29.09.2017

While hosts of the younger generation chicken out at the prospect of having to travel north for a round of the Maxxis, let's hear it for Willi Laederach, the CEO of the promoting group at the Swiss GP. Willi thought nothing of a 700 mile road trip on his Beemer to Matterley Basin to attend the 2017 Motocross des Nations ... at the age of 76 !

NUMBER 9 ! | 10.09.2017

Toni Caroli announced yesterday: "I only need a few points but I want to win this title in style !" And the Sicilian kept his word, pushing Jeffrey Herlings to the chequered flag as Tim Gajser crashed his skull out trying to keep up and Max Anstie came home a minute down in third ! The celebrations could begin. KTM could get their second title in an hour; Jeremy Seewer has to beat Paul Jonass in Moto two to keep MX2 alive !

MAX, TOMMY & DEANO | 15.08.2017

It was a no-brainer after Shaun Simpson ruled himself out of a first-choice Nations place when he got hurt at Ottobiano, and Tommy Searle's successful comeback at Frauenfeld sealed it. Tommy Gun will take the MX2 ride – he massacred the opposition last time he rode a 250 at Matterley – while Max Anstie, getting ever closer to a GP win in the prestige class, will race MXGP and Dean Wilson, hot every time he has represented Britain will ride "Open". The Scot's mechanic will fly over a week early with personalised parts such as bars and suspension and will build Deano's bike at the IceOne factory workshop. Hysterical keyboard warriors have been calling for Brad Anderson to be chosen, but the 36 year old admits himself that he is several seconds off GP pace, while the pressure of a "home" Nations would be too much to inflict on Conrad Mewse and Ben Watson at this stage of their careers. Meanwhile Simpson's recovery has progressed well and the Scot already raced Baslen today and will be in Sweden this weekend.


What a weekend for Julien Lieber @ Lommel ! His fifth MX2 GP podium of the season, nomination to join Clement Desalle and Jeremy Van Horebeek in Belgium's Nations squad at Matterley Basin ... and a factory contract for his move to MXGP with the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team ! "It was my goal this season to get a top ride for MXGP in 2018, and for sure I have achieved that ! I already have a good relationship with Clement and I'm sure we'll work closely together."

2018 START IN THE ANDES | 27.06.2017

The FIM has announced the 2018 MXGP schedule proposed by Youthstream. There will be no round in the Middle East, indeed there will only be four overseas dates amongst the 20 GPs and the opener will be at the glorious Villa La Angostura raceway in the Andes on a slightly earlier date than in the past to secure a glorious autumn spectacle for the Patagonian GP. The other long haul trips will be to Indonesia outside the rainy season, USA and Mexico with a second trip to the US in October for the Nations. Matterley is on June 2/3. Click down for the full list.

GAJSER BOWS OUT | 05.06.2017

Tim Gajser is out of the Russian GP and can wave goodbye to the MXGP world title. HRC has finally come clean and admitted that the Slovenian suffered a broken shoulderblade in his second crash at Teutschenthal three weeks ago, the full extent of the injury first becoming apparant when he had to withdraw from the French GP after qualification: "My shoulder injury is worse than we first realised, so I have to accept that I can’t race this weekend in Russia." Evgeny Bobryshev, who fractured a collarbone in Germany, is confirmed to return for his home GP.
