A WALK IN THE PARQUE | 13.09.2014

Competitors in the Mexican GP were presented to the Leon public today with local dignitaries including the mayor and the governeur of Guanajuato province before parading the town in 4WD pickup trucks and ending the public awareness promotion with an autograph session in a shopping centre. Latinos know how to get the message across that world MX is in town ! Incidentally, after a thorough examination by Yamaha's doctor in Leon, Jeremy Van Horebeek will start on Sunday.

JERRE IN LEON | 09.09.2014

.... but sadly probably not to race ! Jeremy Van Horebeek flew into Leon this morning local time (6 hours behind UK) but the MXGP world number two was still hobbling :( Jerre, having made sure of second in the world, had initially planned to fly back to Belgium, but had to bin that idea: "There wasn't a single seat back from Sao Paulo until the end of the week. I've got an appointment to see a specialist in Leon at four o'clock this afternoon, and we'll take it from there. Perhaps I can get a flight home from here."

NATIONS LINE-UP | 28.08.2014

Just a month to go to the 2014 Motocross des Nations and 33 nations have nominated rider trios to contest this year's event at Kegums in Latvia on September 27/28. Click "More" to see the line-ups for the thirty three nations.

ROAD TO RECOVERY | 15.08.2014

Back in January whilst preparing for the coming season in Spain Marko Kovalainen was hit in the back by his own bike, shattering his spine and left side and suffering a collapsed lung. The spinal damage was so great that he will remain paralysed but after 12 days in artificial coma and a further month in a special unit, he could be transported back to Finland for ongoing treatment and is now out and about: "Nearly 7 months after my accident I'm finally healthy enough to do some exercise. It just felt so good pump up heart rate a bit. It's still a long road to go but I can see little light at the end of a long tunnel ..." Stay strong, Marko

TARGET MEXICO | 29.07.2014

"8 days in.. 6,5 weeks to go. In front of schedule" Jeffrey Herlings has not given up hope of that third straight MX2 world title. You can see his first tentative leg exercises on the static cycle by clicking FIM chief medical officer David McManus said at the weekend: "I understand that the fracture has been pinned and that his leg is not in plaster; if he is receiving physio and electro treatment, and I would expect that he is, then it is quite possible that his leg will be strong enough by Mexico."

  ..... racing an 85 for charity !<br />

Jeffrey Herlings could have blown his third consecutive MX2 world title this morning .... racing an 85 at Everts & Friends ! KTM race chief Pit Beirer: "We do yet know the full extent of Jeffrey's injuries to date, but he has broken his left femur." Apparantly the Dutch teenager was chasing down Roan van de Moosdijk in the first heat of the kids versus champs 85cc race when he crashed hard and sustained the injuries which would appear likely to keep him out of action for the remainder of the season. He has been operated the same evening.

EURO KIDS | 12.07.2014

The Euro kids already had their first motos @ Hyvinkää. Maksim Kraev led home Nikita Kucherov to a Russian 1-2 in the 65s as Liam Everts, giving a couple of years to many of the riders, came home 23rd, while lone Brit Taylor Hammal was 9th in the 85s, won by Belgium's Jago Geerts after home hope Kim Savaste binned it. Incidentally they were lapping only ten seconds slower than Jeffrey Herlings. Jorge Prado Garcia was out on the first lap of practice; the Spanish kid fell and was hit by a following rider, damaging ligaments in his left ankle. Four Huskys, two 'Bergs, three Yams, two Suzukis and a Kawi took part but everyone that mattered in both classes was in orange. Scroll down for the gallery.


Jake Nicholls' season is effectively over after breaking the little finger of his throttle hand at the Whitby Maxxis on Sunday. The Wilvo Forkrent KTM team leader suffered the injury after a collision; he underwent an operation yesterday to piece the shattered bones back together, the procedure including the finger being wired and pinned as well as having an external fixator fitted. A further operation to remove the metalwork will be required in approximately 5-6 weeks, so he misses at least the next two rounds of the Maxxis and the rest of the GPs in Europe.

..... Husky in Scandinavia ? LOL

   ..... Husky in Scandinavia ?  LOL<br />

The MX gossip machine was put into top gear this afternoon as Stefan Everts posted a photo of himself in riding gear with an IceOne factory Husky and the comment "Husky test for GP's off scandinavian ... #comeback". Suspecting a wind-up we contacted KTM sports director Pit Beirer: "No-one has informed me, though I can tell you that Stefan and Jeffrey were testing the 2016 KTM on Monday. I can guarantee that Stefan is NOT planning a comeback." Wonder how many noticeboards already posted the hot "news".

JOEL ROELANTS | 15.06.2014

Joel Roelants underwent an operation yesterday evening at a spcialist clinic in Torino to stabilise the C7 and C8 vertebrae in his back after he was airlifted from Maggiora following an horrendous crash during MXGP timed training when he flew over the bars and was struck by his own bike. The full extent of his injuries have not yet been established but as track staff ran to his aid in the wake of the crash the 25 year old Belgian immediately indicated by gestures that he had no feeling in his legs. The thoughts of the entire MXGP circus are the amiable Belgian and his family at this difficult time.
