UFO INTERCEPTOR II (a)
MAX, TOMMY & DEANO | 15.08.2017
MAX, TOMMY & DEANO

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.

JULIEN LIEBER TO KRT

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."

USGP 2017 AT JACKSONVILLE | 19.07.2017
USGP 2017 AT JACKSONVILLE

It's only two months since the US GP on 2/3 September was "confirmed" for Gainesville but this morning, six weeks prior to the event, YS sent out a mail to say the GP will be now be an hour and a half down the road at WW Motocross Park, Jacksonville. The new facility, opened in 2013, is rated as the best practice track in Florida; apparantly the switch from Gainesville came because US promotor Davy Coombs could not reach agreement with Gainesville after an existing contract ran out on June 30.

2018 START IN THE ANDES | 27.06.2017
2018 START IN THE ANDES

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
GAJSER BOWS OUT

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.

COMRADE ANDO | 27.05.2017
COMRADE ANDO

Brad Anderson is off to Russia after all ! A number of interested parties have chipped in to cover the costs and Ando's passport went off to the Russian Embassy yesterday. Arrangements have been made for the Verde KTM to be transported by road with another crew, and indeed the entire series top four will now be going; Jacky Martens confirmed this morning that he has made the crate envisaged for injured son Yentel available to Erik Willems and Kenny van Dueren, so there should now be almost a dozen regulars, plus presumably a couple of Ruskies on 250 smokers.

ANDO LIGHTS THE FIRE | 20.05.2017
ANDO LIGHTS THE FIRE

Brad Anderson was the first man to light the fires at Teutschenthal this weekend when her romped to victory in the Euro 300 opener aboard the Verde KTM smoker ! Coming up 36 Ando was on it like a youngster half his age to head home champion Mike Kras by 20 seconds in the only race with a full gate ;-) Top men in the GP classes were Toni Cairoli and Benoit Paturel; the top four in MX2 all showed nerves to hit the deck, HRC didn't have a man at the chequered flag in MXGP as Evgeny Bobryshev went to hospital with a broken collarbone while Tim Gajser banged himself up but walked away. But what about Jeffrey Herlings ? Fastest qualifier, sat in 5th for 15 minutes and swept to second at will. Thr Bullet is on it again !

EIGHTY FOUR ! | 08.05.2017
EIGHTY FOUR !

Jeffrey Herlings is still openly insistent that the MXGP title is a step too far after his injury worries during the overseas tour, but the glint in the corner of his eye betrays the fact that he knows that nothing is impossible after previous points leader Tim Gajser picked up more than a few bruises courtesy of Jose Butron and the savage Kegums ruts. The Bullet, 110 down before the weekend, is, with twelve GPs still on the schedule, just 46 points behind third-placed Gautier Paulin and 84 - yes, 84 ! - shy of new points leader Toni Cairoli ! Wonder what price Ladbrookes are offering now ?

THE BULLET FIRES AGAIN | 22.04.2017
THE BULLET FIRES AGAIN

The Elsendorper Bullet shot back to form this morning. Still static on the bike just a week ago in Trentino Jeffrey Herlings was moving around the bike again at the Eurocircuit, where he has never lost a moto, this morning, setting one fastest lap after another to top Free Training. Fans will see this afternoon if he can stay top man when the opposition take off when the serious business of qualification takes place this afternoon, but the Valkenswaard GP should certainly be worth a visit later today and tomorrow ... and not only for the GP boys as Mike Kras took the GL12 SX250 smoker to pole in EMX250 while Brad Anderson is also prominent on the Verde 2-stroke against the noisy four-bangers.

THE ENTERTAINER | 20.03.2017
THE ENTERTAINER

Crowd favourite at Villa La Angostura was undoubtedly Darian Sanayei. The American was loving the jump-infested track in the Andes and the enthusiastic Argentinian crowd responded to every trick the US boy pulled on his way to fifth overall. But for a fall it could even have been a podium ... but that cannot be far away for Steve Dixon's new boy. Enjoy !
