What a f*** up ! Ben Watson, winner of the EMX2 opener on Saturday, staged a stunning recovery after getting pushed out at turn one - "I took the same central gate as yesterday, but the inside had dried out overnight and they pushed us out today" - to snatch 9th from Calvin Vlaanderen on the last lap. The pass took him into a two-way tie for top points over the weekend with Jorge Zaragoza. The Spanird quite rightly got the overall win on "best second race", but Eddy Herd of the FIM Europe MX Commission also handed the Kawasaki rider the red plate. The Spaniard got 37 points from 6-2 motos, while Ben went 1-9 for 37 ... and the tie decider in the championship is "most wins" - elementary, really !


Ben Watson ran the wheels off the EMX2 opposition in the opening moto @ Sevlievo to win by 11 seconds from Brian Bogers and Thomas Olsen. Steven Clarke swapped backwards and forwards for the lead for two laps before going down and, suffering massive arm pump, having to settle for fourth, while hot favourite Pauls Jonass surged from 20th to third in two laps before tightening up and going backwards to 13th, one behind Adam Sterry. James Cottrell was advancing strongly until the clutch lever broke and he eventually had to hold off James Dunn for the final point. More 250F Euro action tomorrow.

  ... track changes @ Sevlievo

After making their way through SNOW, peasoup fog and torrential rain the first arrivals @ Sevlievo were greeted with the sight of a number of track changes designed to slow down the Bulgarian expressway. Gone is the flat-out downhill sweep to the finish line where Pit Beirer was paralysed in 2003, an extra loop taking away the pace, and the double on the first uphill is going to be difficult for 250Fs after the insertion of a chicane. Sunday is forecast to be dry, but further rain could presumably see a revision of the Saturday schedule to save the track ... and the YS workers will have their wet weather gear on today as they build the infrastructure.

 Conrad Mewse @ KTM Red Bull Factory Racing

Conrad Mewse arrived on the GP scene in style in Arco; the 14 year old from the West Country will race the European 125 series this year out of the Red Bull KTM Factory tent, parked right next to Jeffrey Herlings ! "It's every kid's dream to be in a factory team," enthused the 85cc World & Euro champ, "and my dream has come true !"

  ... Tommy Searle gets a new training partner

Tommy Searle has got a new teammate ... and training partner !
Thomas Covington, the 18 year son of Monster Energy CEO Mitch who has contested the three overseas MX2 GPs for KRT, has signed on the dotted line to contest the remainder of the series plus the entire 2015 campaign for CLS Kawasaki and will be based in Derby to train with the UK number one and Kirk Gibbons.

TOP GIRLS | 02.04.2014

Only two girls have ever scored points against the men in world motocross, and both Mariana Balbi, who got on the scoresheet in MX1 at Canelinha in 2009, and Livia Lancelot were at Beto Carrero over the weekend. Unfortunately Mariana didn't have a bike and Livia missed the points ... but the French girl once again deserved congratulations with a stunning show.

HOT ! | 29.03.2014

104.9 degrees Fahrenheit - that's 41 Celcius - in the shade at 11am ! Yup, the weather front changed in the night, the storm clouds were pushed back onto the Atlantic and it will be dry and H-O-T for the Brazilian GP this weekend. And the locals are prepared with a freezer full of guarana juice to cool down hot guys. Tastes good too - right up there with Irn Bru !

  update on Jeffrey Herlings

Jeffrey Herlings has held the MX2 red plate continuously since the opening GP of the 2012 season at Valkenswaard, but the Dutch teenager could lose it to any one of seven rivals on Sunday in Brazil. Stefan Everts was on the TAM Hopper to Florianopolis this morning and gave more details of the injury: "Jeffrey has muscle damage in the left shoulder; that is not the one he damaged at Bastogne last year." Will he be at the gate in Arco on April 10 ? "That's the plan."


Jeffrey Herlings is out of this weekend's Brazilian GP and will almost certainly lose his MX2 GP red plate. The Dutch teenager crashed on his shoulder during practice for the Dutch championship round at Mill on Sunday morning; no details but medical advice is that the injury is worse than initially feared and he should rest to ensure being at the start in a fortnight at Arco in Italy.
Pit Beirer, KTM Head of Motorsports "We naturally regret that Jeffrey will not be on the grid for the Brazil round as we are sure his fans will be disappointed. But the season is long and we feel he is well advised to sit this one out."
At least Jeffrey's injury makes the series more interesting ... and gives Max Anatie chance to make up the points he lost in Qatar !


The Jeffrey Herlings rollercoaster continued today. Having sat out the first round of the Dutch national series, the MX2 world champion turned up for round two at Mill today but crashed on his shoulder during practice and, after a check-up at the local hospital, decided not to race. Glenn Coldenhoff again won both motos. Will Herlings be fit for Brazil ? What do you think ? ;-)
