WIDE OPEN | 30.09.2017
WIDE OPEN

Wide open .... and not just the throttles pinned in Nations quali at Matterley today ! The Big 8 teams were in charge today, and were so tightly packed that not a single dream had two top six scores from the MX1 and MX2 motos. Pole in the end went to France on the third rider tie-break from Nederland with Britain fifth from a Max Anstie 4th and a Dean Wilson 5th with Tommy Searle 7th. But the third rider fifth score is going to be vital tomorrow and three riders score were even closer with France 12, Australia 13, Nederland 14, Britain 16, USA 17, Switzerland 20, Italy 26 & Belgium 29. The rest are battling for ninth, with Ireland right in there are a fine 14th from Martin Barr and a stunning ninth by Graeme Irwin. The team which wins the closest Nations in history will be the one which avoids mistakes.

THE LULL BEFORE THE STORM ? | 28.09.2017
THE LULL BEFORE THE STORM ?

Rain or shine this weekend at Matterley Basin - let's wait and see. It pissed down last night and the Dixon/YS crew are hard at work getting the arena in shape in the sunshine. Track layouts has been altered to cut out the perilous downhill chicane - an accident waiting to happen, ask Dean Ferris - while there is a US-style elevated start gate. Evil tongues have suggested that the combination of the metal grid and downhill traction should at least ensure the Iranians and the Israelis can get out of the start gate ;-)

MAY THE BEST MAN WIN | 09.09.2017
MAY THE BEST MAN WIN

Title decider tomorrow in Assen and Toni Cairoli pretty much has that tied up, needing just a 16th place in the first moto to secure number 9 .... but race 2 should be a cracker. "I don't need too many points, but then in race two I want to race for the win .... unless I'm too drunk," he laughed. Two falls saw the Sicilian only 11th in qualifying today as Jeffrey Herlings came back from a slip too to win by nearly 20 seconds. In MX2 quali Pauls Jonass hit the deck more times than he would care to remember and will have only 20th gate pick; the Latvian has to pull 10 points on Jeremy Seewer to seal it tomorrow ... but who knows ?

TONI or THE BULLET | 03.09.2017
TONI or THE BULLET

Toni Cairoli or Jeffrey Herlings ? Who's your money on today at the WW Ranch ? The KTM duo were in a class of their own yesterday, Romain Febvre 45 seconds down on The Bullet for third in quali. Eli Tomac got his finger out for third in warm-up now the sun's come out, but does the US champ have a chance against the dynamic duo ? Not long now to find out.

STORM CLOUD | 02.09.2017
STORM CLOUD

"Sunshine State" Florida ! Right, and hell it's muggy by 9am, but equally true is the fact that storm clouds brew nearly every afternoon. This one rolled in 2pm local time yesterday and swamped the paddock and parking. But, all's well that ends well, it does clear the air slightly and the whole place starts to dry out straight away ... until the next storm. Could be interesting this weekend if the storm clouds roll in halfway through a GP moto at WW Motocross Park here in Jacksonville.

HOWAY THE LAD | 13.08.2017
HOWAY THE LAD

Howay the lad ! Two weeks after Britain secured the youngest two-stroke world title with Eddie Wade, Brad Anderson became the oldest European champion on a smoker with two devastating rides at Frauenfeld. Holding a 21 point advantage over Mike Kras entering the final round, it should have been so easy for Ando, but the 36 year old made life difficult for himself with two wretched gates: "I got closed down at the first turn and there were bikes everywhere." On Saturday he swept from 30th to third and, released from stress when Kras' Toomer ran out of sparks at 15 minutes, charged even further to snatch the moto win from James Dunn, though the GL teamster still took his first weekend overall.

ANDO MOVES IN FOR THE KILL | 05.08.2017
ANDO MOVES IN FOR THE KILL

Brad Anderson moved another step closer to the European 300 title at Lommel today when he ran doen Mike Kras for his fifth victory in seven motos; a repeat tomorrow and the 36 year old can wrap up the series already next Saturday in Frauenfeld. As expected Kras was fast in sand on his GL12 KTM, but the Team Verde vet knew his card was fitness and, even when Kras passed him back for the lead mid-moto, he kept on the pressure and the Dutchman could not respond when Ando turned the screw a second time at 25 minutes. The North-Easterner now leads by 24 points with three motos remaining. Rain affected GP qualification but the skies will be clear tomorrow.

RESPECT | 23.07.2017
RESPECT

A dark shadow was cast over Loket as Moldavian youngster Igor Cuharciuc was killed when he crashed during the first moto of the 85cc European championship finals. The incident happened on the infamous downhill leap where Pauls Jonass crashed last year and Josh Coppins lost the MX1 world title in 2007. Medical staff were immediately at the scene and there was a medical helicopter in attendance, but all attempts to revive the 13 year old, who had travelled with his uncle while his parents stayed home in Moldavia, tragically failed. We express our heartfelt sympathy to Igor's family.


BENNY BOY WAS ON IT IN PORTUGAL | 03.07.2017
BENNY BOY WAS ON IT IN PORTUGAL

Agueda 2017 can be remembered as the day Ben Watson truly arrived in MXGP. Forget the final scoreline, the speed the Maxxis leader showed in Portugal was amazing. A 2017 GP winner and a red plate holder and four factory bikes were amongst his victims as he scorched through to fifth and, now top privateer, even had TKO in 4th in his sights. "I started making mistakes and knew it was time to back off before I crashed," he admitted. "I needed a long time to rebuild my confidence earlier in the year, but I know I have the pace to run with them now. I think it played a role that we had two such hot races in a week and I was able to come again in the last couple of laps." Significantly the only other rider to have faced such a hard ride was Paturel .... and the Frenchman DID crash after getting to fifth.
