MONSTER YAMAHA

Monster Energy and Yamaha will be back together next year after the energy drinks giant signed a three-year deal with the Japanese factory to revive a partnership which ran previously from 2008 to 2012. The factory Yamas will retain their current graphics for the remainder of this season, but MXGP leader Romain Febvre and teammate Jeremy Van Horebeek will already wear Monster helmets this weekend at Assen.

RED PLATE FOR WAYNE BANKS

RED PLATE FOR WAYNE BANKS<br />
 ... and factory SX450F for Shaun Simpson

Wayne Banks, champion mechanic 2014 with Jordi Tixier and now spannering for MX2 GP leader Pauls Jonass, was actually bolting a red plate to the bike for the first time today ! Jonass is left alone to defend the Red Bull KTM colours at Mantova as none of the MXGP team was ready for a return to racing while Davy Pootjes Thursday try-out after removing the plaster from his wrist proved unsuccessful. But there will still be two factory Toomers at the gate in Lombardy as, having tested the bike for three days midweek, Shaun Simpson will make his GP debut on a 2016 factory SX450F tomorrow !

"HEAH, CAN I GET A PHOTO WITH YOU TWO GUYS ?" | 03.08.2015
"HEAH, CAN I GET A PHOTO WITH YOU TWO GUYS ?"


What would you have paid to get a photo with Shaun and Max this weekend after they rocked the world at Lommel ? Even a US spectator who had flown in for the weekend got in on the act :D

HRC SIGN UP TIM GAJSER UNTIL 2020 | 01.08.2015
HRC SIGN UP TIM GAJSER UNTIL 2020

Tim Gajser is poised to be the HRC icon of the 21st Century. Still only 18 the Slovenian was already on the HRC payroll until the end of next year, but a new five year contract, signed this dinnertime, ensures that he will stay red until at least the end of 2020. Already before the season-ending injury for Jeffrey Herlings, the ambitious teenager had admitted: "I want to win the MX2 world title next year and go directly MXGP." That first aim could already happen this year for the effective series leader, defend the title in 2016 and then directly into the factory HRC MXGP squad. Looks like HRC already have their replacement for Gautier Paulin in 2017 !

KIARA FONTANESI IL QUARTO | 26.07.2015
KIARA FONTANESI IL QUARTO

Kiara Fontanesi sensationally clinched her fourth WMX world title at Loket this morning. It all seemed over yesterday evening as two crashes restricted the Italian to a first moto third and doubled Livia Lancelot's series lead to four, but the French girl was in tears this morning. Her race bike played up on the sighting lap and attempts to go to the gate with her spare were quite correctly thwarted by FIM officials; a change of bike after the sighting lap is specifically prohibited by the rules and Livia was turned around at the gate. A nervous Fontanesi rasn third for most of the moto before a late pass on Amandine Verstappen to follow home two moto winner Nancy van de Ven for the title.

BRAD RIDING SHOTGUN | 25.07.2015
BRAD RIDING SHOTGUN

Just over an hour and a half before the action swings into top gear at Loket weith Matt Moffat launching his assault on the EMX300 title. With four motos to run - two this weekend in Czecho and two next weekend at Lommel - the 24 year old from Darlington is just 33 points off effective series leader Marco Maddii, and the North-Eastern crew have brought Brad Anderson with them as spoiler. "I haven't raced a two-stroke for years, but I'm looking forward to this; perhaps I'l race the series next year." Matthew meanwhile is focused on gold: "It's still possible, and I think we'll have a full grid next weekend. I've really enjoyed racing the two-stroke this year, so much fun to ride. Thanks to Daivd Edwards at Husqvarna UK for making it possible." Downside for Brits - fast qualifier Lewis Gregory will not race as he is still having difficulty to breathe, and Ryan "Chubby" Hammond got grounded by the ACU after a minor concussion last weekend at the Fat Cat GT Cup ... where the ACU let him race the second moto after an all-clear following a CTI at the local hospital. With ACU efficiency they managed to text Chubby an hour before he got to Loket on Thursday !

SHORT BACK & SIDES | 14.07.2015
SHORT BACK & SIDES

A couple of years ago the FIM ruled that girls with long hair must tie up their hair so that it doesn't hang out of the back of their helmet to ensure that it couldn't get entangled in the drive chain or brake disc. In Latvia at the weekend Thomas Covington was looking very PC with a new short back and sides frizza; apparantly the US teenager had already been given two warnings by MXGP FIM Race Director Ingo Partsch and been told that he would not be allowed to start if he didn't mend his ways. No stress with the Austrian, who was only doing his job to enforce the rules, but what a sad state when faceless insurance nerds are once more dictating to our once glorious sport. Back to school or what ?

RYAN VILLOPOTO CALLS IT A DAY | 09.07.2015
RYAN VILLOPOTO CALLS IT A DAY

It's the decision which the MX world has been awaiting for weeks, and it is now official. Multi-US champion Ryan Villopoto has ended his career as a result of injuries sustained in the GP of Trentino at Arco in April; in addition to the coccyx injury, it has been discovered on further investigation that the 27 year sustained other traumas to his lower back which are still in the process of healing. Commenting on his career RV2 said: "I am grateful for having had the opportunity to do something I have loved since I was a kid and make it into my livelihood. I am grateful for the support of my family for all the years they spent hauling my bikes and me around to races, interrupting their lives in the process. I am grateful for the support of my many sponsors through the years, first and foremost Kawasaki, which has been my bike of choice since my Team Green days. They have been with me through ups and downs, serious injuries and great successes. Kawasaki is a brand that is synonymous with my racing career. I am grateful to have had the chance to race with the very best in world, my competitors in Supercross and Motocross as well as on MXGP. I am grateful to know that our competitiveness helped to continue the growth of our sport." A replacement @ KRT is awaited in Latvia; now I wonder who just happens to be free ?

FOUR IN A ROW FOR ROMAIN FEBVRE | 05.07.2015
FOUR IN A ROW FOR ROMAIN FEBVRE

Romain Febvre made it four straight MXGP wins at Uddevalla to extend his series points lead over as brave Toni Cairoli to 39 as the HRC challenge wilted. In a roiugh tough GP Shaun Simpson took a first moto third behind the Yamnaha duo of Febvre and Jeremy Van Horebeek, but Tommy Searle's comeback was blighted by a fall in race one which left him needing two stitches in the forearm.

SPLIT STEVES | 04.07.2015
SPLIT STEVES

Just four days after coming within a lap of winning the Blaxhall Maxxis Steven Frossard and Steve Turner's Wilvo Forkrent KTM team have gone their separate ways. Steve Turner commented: "Despite repeated attempts to find solutions I felt that there was no possibility to continue and the decision was mutual." The results posted by Frossard, who started the season on an SX350F at his own request, did not improve when he switched to a 450, and the final straw came at Blaxhall when he inexcusably surrendered a 13 second lead in the last three laps to Shaun Simpson to lose the overall. Frossard was on site at Uddevalla but did not ride; he is expected to race for KRT in Latvia.
