THE ONLY OPTION | 25.11.2015

Jeffrey Herlings just confirmed that he will remain in MX2 one more year, but what did anyone expect ? The simply fact is that the decision had nothing to do with "sandbagging" as so many keyboard warriors claim to "know"; the Dutch youngster is coming off two seasons of horrific injuries - shattered thigh in 2014, plated collarbone, almost severed thumb and wrecked hip joint last summer - and needs another year on 250F to rebuild his body. 450Fs are not a toy at MXGP level - just ask the 17, yes 17 top line racers who signed up for MXGP last winter and didn't see out the year ! MX2 was the only medical option, so let's just savour the prospect of the Bullit and Max Anstie going head-to-head in a level playing field, with Dylan Ferrandis in the mix too ! Roll on Qatar !

   with Suzuki World

Ben Townley returns to full-time GP action next year as he revives his long-standing friendship with Stefan Everts to race alongside Kevin Stijbos for Suzuki World. The 2004 MX2 world champion departed to the US in 2006 to race RV2 to the wire one year later, but injuries interrupted his career regularly and after a troubled attempt to return to GPs with CLS in 2011 BT returned to New Zealand in retirement. After returning to action Down Under he raced to a sensational second place in the final moto at the Ernee Nations and has been snapped up by long-time friend Everts as the record champ takes over Suzuki World from Sylvain Geboers; the official announcement of the Everts move will be made next week at the EICMA Show in Milan.

BLAST OFF | 31.10.2015

GP teams wil be looking to get some track time in before they tackle five overseas GPs in six weeks, starting in Qatar on February 26/27, and all the dates are now out. Hawkstone set the ball rolling by laying claim to February 7, Valence follows a week later and dates for the Italian series were announced yesterday afternoon. Sardinia, the favourite base for winter testing in recent years, starts the ball rolling with the permanent sand track at Alghero in the north of the island taking over from Riola Sardo on January 31. One week later comes another new venue at Lamezia Terme, right down in the instep of the Italian boot, on February 7 with the finale again at Ottobiano near Venice on February 14.

2:1 in favour of DUMBASS DECISIONS | 08.10.2015
2:1 in favour of DUMBASS DECISIONS

The MX GP Commission - that's GL, Skilly and some Japanese bloke - hung around for a day after the Nations to deliver two doses of crap and one long overdue amendment. First the good news. Riders can switch to their second bike AFTER the sighting lap in future; both are in the pre-parc and the updated ruling will not only cover a defect, like the one which cost Livi Lancelot the WMX title, but also enable the lads to have a look at the track on a muddy day without crapping up their race bike. As to the other two changes, just shake your heads, lads.


Thirty-six teams go into the hat for the Nations qualification start-pick draw at Ernee at 9am, just one nominated threesome missing - Iran ! The homeland of the Mullahs was a late entry, as was Israel, and the dual nominations could have created a sensation if both teams had arrived as athletes from the two nations have not faced up to each other in sport competition this Millennium; when drawn against each other at the Olympics, Iranian athletes have been reported "injured" or "sick" overnight. The jovial Israeli trio, all raw amateurs, eventually turned up late Friday afternoon to race Huskys out of an e-z-up adjacent to the JM factory camp. MX2 rider Ariel Dadia, a tender 30 years old, admitted: "We don't have many races back home; motocross is illegal."

MEET & GREET IN LEON | 12.09.2015

It was meet and greet for the handful of remaining GP stars - just 15 each class - in Leon today. They paraded in open jeeps through the town and were introduced to local dignitaries as Mexico showed its sunny side again following heavy overnight rasin which left the facility under water. More rain is forecast but no-one is quite sure when. It all adds to to the excitement as Tim Gajser & Roberts Jonass dispute the MX2 world title. Who would have dreamed that the world's eyes would be fixed on a couple of teenagers, each from countries which didn't even exist a quarter of a century ago ?

GLEN HELEN | 03.09.2015

Cooper Webb will test out the opposition he faces at the Nations when he races the GP finale at Glen Helen on the YZ450F he will take to the start in the Open class at Ernee one week later. He is joined in the MXGP class by local resident Josh Grant, taking his farewell ride for Kawasaki, BTO new boy Davi Millsaps and Husky's Jason Anderson, while Christophe Pourcel and Dean Wilson complete the US factory line-up. Toni Cairoli and Tommy Searle are due to return to join new champion Romain Febvre and current hotshot Shaun Simpson for the GP regulars. TLD's Jessy Nelson and Shane McElreath will be out in MX2 to support Pauls Jonass in the title shootout against Tim Gajser. Quali is on Saturday September 19 with racing on the 20th. Racing starts at 12.15pm local time; that's 8.15pm BST and 9.15 MESZ.

MAY THE BEST BOY WIN | 29.08.2015

The first title decider of the Assen weekend will be early tomorrow morning in Honda's 150 Euro Cup. Just two points separate Finnish teenager Emil Weckman and Jack Bintcliffe from Boroughbridge prior to racing. May the best boy win ... and mentor Gordon Crockard maintain his record as the most successful team manager in the history of motocross :D

FACTORY | 22.08.2015

All those years of grit and hard work finally came to fruition this morning in Mantova as Shaun Simpson took to the track as KTM MXGP leader aboard a 2016 Factory Edition SX450F. After three days of testing during the week the Mattighofen factory even trucked in individual triple clamps as De Carli chief mechanic Nazzarino and Jeremy Long built up the Scot's race bikes on Friday. Beaming in the new-found star status Shaun was bubbling with enthusiasm after first practice: "The bike is so light compared to the 2015; the first time I scrubbed it was like 'Whoa'."
