THE BOY DONE GOOD ! | 03.08.2014

Steven Clarke is the 2014 EMX2 champ after a nerve-tingling decider in which the boy from the Black Country saw out Brian Bogers on the most wins tie-break with a second guty ride through the pack to 6th: "I said before the first round that consistency would win it, and this weekend fitness played a role too. I didn't know I'd won til I saw dad doing cartwheels down the track at the finish. I had Ben Watson on my rear wheel all round the last lap; all I knew was that I needed every point I could get."

HIGH NOON | 02.08.2014

There will be a midday showdown tomorrow in the EMX2 series with Steven Clarke still leading by seven points after the Saturday evening moto in the unrelenting Lommel sand. Things looked bleak early on for the Brit as he dropped as low as eighth with the team-riding Dutch controlling the race from the front, but the Dutch all wilted as fitness started to play a role at 15 minutes, Calvin Vlaanderen and Adam Sterry pusdhed Bogers back to third and Clarkey advanced to fifth behind Brett Van Doninck. The points before the High Noon showdown is Clarke 222, Bogers 215 with Sterry on 196 out of it of the title but possibly set to play a vital role tomorrow.


Kiara - or is that Chiara (the girl herself prefers "K") ? - Fontanesi wrapped up her third consecutive WMX world title at Loket this morning after two turbulent races at the series finale. Compatriot Francesca Nocera held up series rival Meghan Rutledge long enough in the Saturday afternoon moto to leave the 20 year old needing just third in the final moto, and that is exactly what she got as Livia Lancelot ran out winner ahead of Rutledge. Once again Nat Kane, still not fully recovered from her June smack on the head, could not race and sole Brit Gabi Hamlet was a shadow of her usual self after a big crash in quali and didn't start race two.

.... Toni Cairoli to race MX2 ! | 12.07.2014
  ....  Toni Cairoli to race MX2 !

Team Italia dropped a bombshell on Saturday evening in Finland when manager Thomas Traversini announced: "Toni Cairoli has volunteered to race the MX2 class at the Nations in September." The seven times world champion expanded: "I have won the MX1 class on the 350 for the last four motos at the Nations, but we want to win the team classification. I didn't race a 250F for five years, but I am the lightest member of the team and it will be easier for me to switch from a 350 than for my teammates to switch from a 450. We will only have a week and a half to set up the bike, but I am confident I can be competitive." TC's 450 teammates at Kegums will be David Philippaerts and Davide Guarneri.


Six overseas GPs, plus the return of Russia ! The 2015 GP season will see several dramatic changes with no GP in New Zealand, Bulgaria or Sweden, but two new ones in Argentina and a Dutch GP at the road race shrine of Assen. The list at the moment is strictly "provisional" as Youthstream are contractually committed to presenting a provisional calendar for the following year before July 1, but the direction is clear. The WMX girls have the chance to get hot and sticky with two overseas races in Qatar and Thailand at the start of the year. Click "More" to see the full list of 18 events.


Jeffrey Herlings will race at least one US National in August. KTM racing boss Pit Beirer confirmed the news over the weekend at Teutschenthal: "It is Jeffrey's dream to race there sometime and we promised him that we would make everything available for him to do so. He initially wanted to race Millville, but we didn't want him flying hectically backwards and forwards between two GPs (Ed: Millville is on July 19, the free weekend between Hyvinkää and Loket) but the cancellation of the Ukraininan GP gives him almost all of August free ... and Jeffrey would be out riding flat-out every day anyway on the practice track. It is not a condition that he has already clinched the world title at Lommel on August 3." There are three US Nationals in August - Unadilla on the 9th, Crawfordsville/Indiana on the 16th and Tooele/Utah on the 23rd.

TONUS ON HIS WAY HOME | 21.06.2014

Arnaud Tonus is on his way home this evening after crashing out of the German GP during free practice. The Swiss ace needed morphine after dislocating a shoulder when he cross-rutted before a step-up, and, in his absence, Jeffrey Herlings has the possibility to move 105 points clear in the MX2 world series tomorrow to make his hopes of clinching the title at Lommel on the first weekend of August a distinct possibility ! The Dutch teenager and Kevin Strijbos won the qualification races at Teutschenthal.

SALUTE, O SHOW | 17.06.2014

There is usually a show element to Italian GPs, particularly @ Maggiora, and 1986 Nations hero Johnny O'Mara was present at the weekend as the track winds up to hosting the world team contest again in 2016: "It's only the second time I've been back since. That race 28 years asgo was just one of those days you never forget; it was probably the best race of my career." The O Show was in the US "dream team" alongside David Bailey and Rick Johnson as they whitewashed the opposition, Johnny being the ultimate US hero when he passed current 500 world champion David Thorpe on his 125, though the crowing Yanks did ignore the fact that DT had no brakes !


Ben Watson made it the second holeshot of the day for Hitachi KTM when he led away the first EMX2 moto @ Maggiora, but Sulivan Jaulin, who had lapped even faster than Herlings in the morning quali, needed less than half a lap to nip past and run away with the moto. Ben stayed a clear second, Adam Sterry moved forward decisively to third before being pushed back to fifth late on, and Steven Clarke had to work hard to defend his red plate; away midpack and caught up on lap one, he came round first time outside the top 20 but worked forward methodically to ninth at the finish. And, the rain holding off, there was dust !
