Jordi Tixier wil sit out the GPs in Asia after needing a second operation on the wrist he broke last August at Mantova: "Of course it's a big disappointment but there was no other solution as the most recent examination revealed that my wrist had still some damage after the surgery of last summer. Professor Mathoulin didn't want me to race with infiltration as it could have dramatic consequences so I had no real choice. Fortunately he didn't have to put any screws or spindle in my wrist, he just repaired the ligament and worked on some bones; I've a light plaster for one week, then I will visit him again for a check up and I will follow his advice. It's just a shame that it came so late; I had some pain when riding the bike but all the doctors told me that it was just normal after such an injury. I want to thanks the team and all our sponsors, as nobody put pressure on me, and I can't wait to be back racing as the bike is fantastic and the team so professional. It's a tough period for me, but I will be back stronger as soon as I will be fit again."


MXGP world champion Romain Febvre and the deposed title holder Toni Cairoli will not face each other until the opening GP in Qatar on February 26/27. Following his rib injuries rhe ex-champ's first race of the year will be the Italian finale at Ottobiano on February 14, and on that weekend Febvre will race outdoor in his native France for the first time since clinching the title when he faces the Suzuki and Kawasaki factory teams and Shaun Simpson at Valence.


Jake Nicholls and Ben Watson will sit out the four overseas GPs which herald the 2016 GP campaign. This shock news broke this evening as Youthstream issued the entry list for the Qatar GP with just 24 names in MXGP and 23 in MX2. Hitachi Husqvarna principal Roger Magee confirmed within minutes: "We're not doing the overseas GPs this year." Also missing from the official lists to date are amazingly the Monster Kawasaki MX2 factory team and Yamaha's Sascha Tonkov and David Philippaerts, but a YS spokesperson quickly confirmed that the absencer of Dylan Ferrandis and Petar Petrov was merely a clerical error as the apropriate paperwork had not yet been received. While Jake & Ben stay home, Alex Snow and Alfie Smith are confirmed for overseas alongside Shaun Simpson, Tommy Searle, Max Anstie and Adam Sterry.

TOP MAN | 19.12.2015

Shaun Simpson is the people's choice ! After many months of worldwide voting the Scot has come out top of the charts to be stalked throughout 2016 by Living For The Weekend for their next video "The Exceptional Six". This is enormous news for Shaun, the only privateer to ever win a GP in MX1 or MXGP, and confirms his popularity whehre it counts - with the fans ! Armed with factory Toomers for the 2016 campaign Shaun is the man in the spotlight ! Five more names will be announced in the coming days, but it is now clear .... Shaun is Top Man !

ROUND 10 @ TALAVERA | 09.12.2015

No official word yet from the FIM or YS, but the round 10 TBA, the midway point of the 19 round 2016 MXGP world series on May 28/29, will be at Talavera in Spain. It was a no-brainer after the Spanish attended the recent organisers' meeting as "observers", but the Spanish media is reporting it as a done deal and Talavera have clearly now coughed up their 2015 debts to YS. In addition to the regular GP classes, the event will also host EM125, EM250 and EM300.

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 | 10.11.2015
   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.
