RACE REPORTPRADO AND GUADAGNINI ON THE TOP STEP IN LOKET

LOKET (Czech Republic) 25 July 2021 – The MXGP of Czech Republic makes a stellar comeback to the FIM Motocross World Championship calendar, as Red Bull KTM Factory Racing dominate the top step, with victories from Jorge Prado and Mattia Guadagnini.

In the opening MXGP race of the day, it was Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jorge Prado who took his fourth Fox Holeshot of the season and led the race ahead of Team HRC’s Tim Gajser, Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Ben Watson and Glenn Coldenhoff, who were ahead of Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Romain Febvre.

Meanwhile Ivo Monticelli from Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team had a shocker of a start, as he hit the start gate and took a while to get going.

Throughout the race, Prado and Gajser kept things closed and remained within one a half seconds of one another, while Watson was having a great ride in third ahead of his teammates.

As the race progressed though, Watson was coming under immense pressure from the guys behind him, as he lost on positions to Coldenhoff, Febvre, Seewer and Antonio Cairoli of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing who passed the Brit on lap nine.

Watson then lost another position to Standing Construct GasGas Factory Racing’s Pauls Jonass who was fighting his way well inside the top ten, though a couple of laps later, the Latvian had a bike problem which forced him to DNF the race.

With a couple of laps to go, Gajser was starting to push more to take the win from the #61 of Prado, though it was not enough as the Spaniard secured the race win ahead of the Honda rider, with Febvre finishing third ahead of Coldenhoff and Seewer.

As the gate dropped for race two, it was once again Prado who led the way with another Fox Holeshot under his belt. Though his teammate, Cairoli wasted no time to take away the lead and get himself in front.

The two factory KTM’s were followed by Seewer, Coldenhoff and Gajser, as Monticelli had a much better start in the race and was running in sixth place.

Gajser then muscled past Coldenhoff for fourth position and then started to apply the pressure onto Seewer who managed to catch onto the back of Prado.

Three laps later after getting into fourth place, Gajser crashed out and had to head into pitlane to fix the clutch lever that was jammed in his hand guard. The Slovenian re-joined the race way down the order in around 30th and had a long way to go to get back up to 15th where he finished the race.

Seewer then took second from Prado as Cairoli continued to lead, all while SS24 KTM rider Shaun Simpson was having a mega ride in sixth position.

Gebben Van Venrooy Yamaha Racing’s Calvin Vlaanderen was searching for a way around Simpson, though made a small mistake which sent him over the bars with just a few laps left to go. He didn’t finish the race.

Febvre was looking good as he got Alessandro Lupino of MRT Racing Team KTM for eighth and set his sights on higher positions, though not long after crashed out and finished the race in 10th.

In the end, it was Cairoli who secured his third race win of the season, with Seewer second, Prado third with Coldenhoff and Monticelli rounding out the top five.

In terms of the podium, it was Jorge Prado who won the overall Grand Prix, with Antonio Cairoli second on the box, continuing his podium streak, with Jeremy Seewer getting his first podium finish of the season.

While Gajser lost valuable points today, he still leads the championship by 11 points ahead of Cairoli and Prado, as the pair move up the rankings.

Jorge Prado: “I gave everything I had. So, it was a great weekend. You know I am getting every weekend better and better. This second race was very rough for me, just physically was tough. You know just to hold on to the bike was difficult, so I just did my best, tried to ride it smoothly and not make any mistakes, which was very difficult on a track like this. But you know, first win of the season, first race win of the season as well. I can’t ask for more”.

“It was not the start of the season that I expected, I expected to be better, I had small things that I needed to put together but it’s nothing too crazy and we are working on it, so I think we’re heading in the right direction as you can see this weekend, next one is Lommel, good memories, so let’s go forward”.

Antonio Cairoli: “Overall, I am happy about everything, because my goal is to finish on the podium every weekend. I messed up in Russia, this is something I still regret a little bit. I struggled a lot with the track as always in Loket. The start is so important and in the first race I was eighth or ninth in the start, then I tried to make some passes and it was difficult as Jeremy and Glenn were also really fast. I finished sixth which is for sure not what I want, but it’s racing and this year I’m feeling really good and I’m enjoying the racing, looking forward to the next one, looking to keep consistent on the podium”.

“I don’t look at the championship, it’s not my thing at the moment, I just want to take it race by race, and enjoy the training as I changed my schedule a little, in the past I used to ride a lot, now I ride one time a week and race, it’s working well and I’m enjoying it. Of course, Lommel is tough, we will struggle physically but I really enjoy it when it’s rough”.

Jeremy Seewer: “The start to my season wasn’t at all what I expected, just before we started, I was in good shape and stuff but I tested positive for COVID, so it was tight for Russia to make it and that explains my results. But I am happy to be back, I started to feel better already but last weekend was just a bit off, in the start of the second race, luckily, I wasn’t hurt as a few riders ran me over which is fine. I’m really happy to be back on the podium, especially that second race, good start and made a key pass on Jorge, I just used his small mistake to catch him and rode to second without a problem”.

“Lommel is like a home GP for us all, as most of the GP riders live around there, so I’m looking forward to that, it always gets rough and it’s exciting to race there”.

Tim Gajser: “I’m okay. The first race was good, I was quite happy with it. The second race, I had a good start and made some quick passes in the beginning and then the third or fourth lap I just landed, and the bike went sideways so I had a big one. Obviously, some bad luck because my clutch lever went into the hand guard so I couldn’t really use the clutch and had to go to pitlane. In the end I re-joined the race but managed to save some points as I came back to fifteenth. Obviously, I’m disappointed but that’s how it is, and it happens so we move forward”

“Last year changed a lot. Obviously before when we went to Lommel I wasn’t so great there but in the last two years we put in a lot of work in the sand to improve myself a little bit and I’m looking forward to going there. Of course, I don’t train there at all but I like the track and I will do my best”.

In the first MX2 race, it was Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Mattia Guadagnini who took the Fox Holeshot ahead of Bike it MTX Kawasaki rider Wilson Todd and Tom Vialle of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jed Beaton and Kay De Wolf had a good start in the race, as they were running fourth and sixth, with Honda 114 Motorsports Ruben Fernandez in between the pair.

Beaton was eventually able to get around Todd for third, while the championship leader, Maxime Renaux of Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing was struggling down in 17th.

De Wolf then caught onto the back of Todd as he went after top positions and by lap, the youngster was ahead of the Aussie.

Renaux then managed to fight his way inside the top 10, as he went after his teammate Thibault Benistant of Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing, with F&H Kawasaki Racing’s Roan Van De Moosdijk lurking in the background.

Guadagnini continued to lead the race, as Vialle closed in ever so slightly with the pair keeping a healthy two to three second gap throughout the race.

Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jago Geerts didn’t have the best opening race, as he struggled outside the top 10, to eventually finish the race in 12th.

In the end it was Guadagnini who managed to keep Vialle at bay to win the race, while Vialle secured a positive result after his injury struggles to finish second ahead of Beaton, Fernandez and Renaux, with De Wolf dropping to sixth.

In the second race, it was Benistant who grabbed the second Fox Holeshot ahead of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Rene Hofer, Renaux, Guadagnini, Geerts and Fernandez.

Meanwhile Vialle and other riders, got caught up in a crash on the start, with the Frenchman carrying on for eight laps before crashing once again and retiring from the race.

Also having a tough start were Beaton and De Wolf as they sat down in 10th and 13th, eventually managing to get up to 8th and 9th by the end of the race – not the result they were probably hoping for after the success of race one.

Benistant continued to lead, as Guadagnini edged closer to Hofer for third, while F&H Kawasaki Racing’s Mathys Boisrame stole a position from Beaton.

As Renaux chased down his teammate for the win, he tucked the front of the factory Yamaha and ended up crashing, losing around six seconds as a result, but managing to keep his second-place position.

Geerts was looking to make up for the tough first race as he chased Fernandez fifth and eventually was able to pass him to move up a spot, while Van de Moosdijk also sensed his opportunity to do the same as he took sixth from the Spaniard, and his teammate, Boisrame did the same a lap or so later.

Guadagnini then went down and lost out a position to Geerts which worked in Renaux’s favour for the championship, as Geerts continued his climb to the top with a pass on Hofer for third, making it a Factory Yamaha 1-2-3.

In the end, Benistant was the race winner with Renaux second and Geerts third. Hofer place fourth, ahead of Guadagnini.

Mattia Guadagnini went on to take his second overall win of the season, with Maxime Renaux finishing second and Thibault Benistant securing his first MX2 podium, as he took to the third step of the podium.

Renaux continues to lead the championship by just two points over Guadagnini who is second, while Fernandez is third.

Mattia Guadagnini: “The first victory is always the first, more emotional and a bit different but I’m so happy to be back on the top of the box. Today went really well, I did not have the best qualifying ride, but I got the holeshot in the first race and a win. It was not easy but for sure when you’re up front you can ride alone and nobody in front. So, I just managed to take the win and it was good. Then second race I had a good start again but then I was fourth and tried to push up again to pass Rene, then I had a small crash that cost me not so much time but I lost fourth position, I was fifth and then just managed to finish fifth and it was enough to take the overall, looking forward to Lommel”.

“Yeah, Lommel is not my favourite track, but I had some good memories. I can ride good in sand, not like last week, but normally yes. I am looking forward to race there and hope to be back on the podium for sure and try to be at my best as always”.

Maxime Renaux: “Yeah, like you said, two different races. The first one, I was really happy with my riding and also the flow on the track. Got a really bad start around twentieth place and then I fought my way through the pack, and it was enough to get fifth place. It was not the best result, but I was happy with the riding. The second race I got a good start in third, and then I passed to second and tried to follow Thibault, maybe make a late charge in the race but then I lost the front and had a crash.I just made a lonely race after that, I saw Mattia crashed also, so I had some space let’s say and I did not push too hard. So, second was really good and also second overall and red plate, so that was a good day overall”.

“It’s always nice to have the red plate on the bike. Actually, I don’t have any pressure on that, I just enjoy the colour and the bike and that’s it. So yeah, I hope to keep it as long as possible”.

Thibault Benistant: “It is my first podium in MX2, so I am really proud about this, about the second race with the holeshot and to keep the lead until the end. First race, I was not feeling so good and started a little more difficult, so I did not push so much and in between the races, we changed a little bit on the bike, so the second race I was feeling really good and I was able to keep the first place”

“Yeah, for the moment it is quite okay [the rookie season], I still need to take some experience and be more in the front on the start let’s say. Because until now I did one race on and one race off, so I need to improve on this and I hope we will continue like this”.

Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team MXGP Press releaseRomain Febvre se rapproche du leader du championnat
Romain Febvre s’est rapproché du leader du Mondial après la cinquième épreuve du championnat du Monde MXGP qui s’est disputée à Loket en République Tchèque. Son coéquipier Ivo Monticelli se classant neuvième, le Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team place ses deux pilotes dans le top dix pour la première fois cette saison.

Qualifié en seconde position à un petit dixième de seconde de la pôle, Romain virait en cinquième position au premier départ et allait peu à peu se rapprocher de ses rivaux directs. Sur un circuit ou les dépassements ne sont guère aisés, Romain allait être aidé par la puissance de sa machine pour porter ses attaques dans la montée précédant les stands ; passant quatrième après douze minutes de courses, il gagnera encore une place huit minutes plus tard pour s’installer en troisième position. Les leaders avaient alors porté leur avance à neuf secondes et bien qu’il leur ait repris un peu de terrain, il en resta là et franchit la ligne d’arrivée à cette position. La seconde manche a moins bien débuté puisque Romain s’est retrouvé enfermé au premier virage, se retrouvant vingt deuxième ; signant d’excellents temps chrono alors qu’il était dans le peloton Romain pointait huitième à six tours de l’arrivée, dans la roue du groupe de pilotes en lutte pour la cinquième place. Alors qu’il s’apprêtait à porter une nouvelle attaque il se faisait surprendre par des bosses sur un freinage et partait à la faute, perdant plusieurs places et se retrouvant hors du top dix. Il reviendra chercher cette dixième place, qui lui permet de prendre la cinquième place du Grand Prix et de se rapprocher du leader du championnat qui n’est plus qu’à vingt points de lui.

Pour Ivo Monticelli la journée avait bien commencé puisque l’Italien signait le troisième temps chrono aux essais, à une demie seconde de la pole. La bonne place derrière la grille n’allait pas lui porter chance au premier départ, puisque celle ci tardait à s’abaisser si bien qu’Ivo la percutait et s’élançait en dernière position. Il lui fallait vingt minutes pour revenir dans les points, et pointé seizième à quatre tours de l’arrivée il gagnait encore deux places en signant des chronos similaires à ceux du top ten. Sa détermination fut récompensée en seconde manche ; parti sixième il allait gagner une place après dix minutes de course, confirmant les espoirs placés en lui par KRT, et décrochant la neuvième place du jour pour doubler son capital points et se positionner dix septième au championnat.

Romain Febvre : « Aujourd’hui j’avais un bon feeling avec la piste. Je n’ai pas signé de holeshot mais mon premier départ fut bon ; j’étais cinquième, il m’a fallu quelques tours pour prendre un bon rythme et quand je l’ai pris j’ai pu doubler Coldenhoff et Watson pour le gain de la troisième place. J’ai fait quelques bons tours et réduit l’écart avec les leaders, mais ils étaient loin et j’ai préféré assurer ma troisième place. Pour la seconde manche j’ai fait une erreur en changeant de place sur la grille ; je suis bien sorti de la grille mais au premier virage je me suis retrouvé enfermé… J’étais loin derrière et les premiers tours furent compliqués car j’étais dans le peloton, puis j’ai trouvé mon rythme pour revenir huitième, tout près du groupe de pilotes devant moi. J’attaquais Simpson quand j’ai chuté, une petite erreur et j’ai perdu l’avant. Troisième et dixième, cette fois je marque plus de points que le leader du championnat mais j’en perds face à mes rivaux directs au championnat. Maintenant l’objectif est de récupérer pour être prêt pour Lommel. »

Ivo Monticelli : « La piste ici est ‘hardpack’ comme chez moi en Italie, là ou j’ai grandi, si bien que j’avais un bon feeling et j’étais confiant surtout après avoir signé le troisième temps aux essais. En première manche j’ai trop anticipé le départ et je me suis retrouvé coincé derrière la grille ; je suis parti dernier, je sais qu’ici il est difficile de doubler mais j’ai réussi à revenir quatorzième. Mon pilotage et ma vitesse étant bonnes, je savais que j’avais le potentiel de faire bien en seconde manche et après être parti sixième j’ai pu rester avec le groupe de tête et passer cinquième quand Gajser a chuté. J’étais proche de Coldenhoff mais j’ai perdu le contact à trois tours de la fin ; j’ai fait une erreur et je n’ai pas voulu prendre le risque de perdre ma cinquième place. Maintenant on va aller s’entrainer dans le sable en vue de Lommel. »

Sexton Prevails at Washougal to Become Fourth Different Winner
in 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship

Martin Becomes First Repeat Winner in 250 Class with Second Straight Victory

WASHOUGAL, Wash. (July 24, 2021) – The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, kicked off its second half of the 2021 season with a visit to the Pacific Northwest and legendary Washougal MX Park. The seventh round of the season featured abundant sunshine and a massive crowd welcoming the return of the world’s fastest racers for the MotoSport.com Washougal National. In the 450 Class, a highly competitive afternoon saw Team Honda HRC’s Chase Sexton emerge victorious to become the division’s fourth different winner. In the 250 Class, the historic streak of six different winners came to an end as Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Jeremy Martin prevailed for the second straight race to take his first Washougal victory.The 2021 Washougal National was the first since the passing of track patriarch Ralph Huffman.

The opening 450 Class moto got underway with Sexton leading the field with the MotoSport.com Holeshot while teammate Ken Roczen slotted into second. The Honda duo dropped the hammer on the opening lap to try and open a gap over Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb, in third, and the rest of the field, while points leader Dylan Ferrandis had to fight his way from ninth aboard his Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing machine.
 
Sexton and Roczen continued to pace the field and moved out several seconds ahead of Webb, who came under fire from his Red Bull KTM teammate Marvin Musquin and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac 10 minutes into the moto. Musquin made a successful pass on Webb to move into podium position and Tomac soon followed into fourth.
 
Back out front, Sexton started to pull away from Roczen and built a lead of more than five seconds as Roczen proceeded to lose ground to Musquin. The Frenchman continued to pressure the German and after several laps Musquin made the pass to take over second. Tomac was next in line and the old rivals battled briefly until lapped traffic worked in Tomac’s favor and allowed him to drop Roczen off the podium. The Honda rider continued to lose positions and eventually was passed by his championship rival Ferrandis.
 
For Sexton it was the most dominant outing of his career as he went wire-to-wire to bring home his first moto win of the season. A late moment of misfortune by Musquin allowed Tomac to move into second and finish 3.4 seconds behind Sexton, while Musquin recovered to earn his best moto result of the season in third. Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia finished fourth, with Ferrandis fifth and Roczen sixth.A pair of strong starts put Chase Sexton at the front of the field for the second win of his career.
Photo: Align MediaAs the 450 Class field stormed out the gate to begin Moto 2 it was Webb who edged out Ferrandis and his Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing teammate Aaron Plessinger to secure the MotoSport.com Holeshot. Webb assumed the lead briefly, but Ferrandis put in a charge to make a quick pass and seize control of the moto, leaving Webb to fend off Sexton in third.

Sexton made his way around Webb and then looked to track down Ferrandis for the lead. Webb’s battle wasn’t over as Plessinger pressued from fourth. Webb held him off briefly but the Yamaha rider was able to make the pass and move into the top three. As the moto approached the 10-minute mark less than two seconds separated the lead trio while Tomac lurked in fourth.

The top four settled into their positions through the middle portion of the moto and paced one another with consistent lap times. Sensing an opportunity, Tomac went on the attack and made quick work of Plessinger to move into third. The intensity from the top three increased dramatically during the final 10 minutes of the moto as a strong push from Tomac pushed Sexton closer to Ferrandis. The Frenchman responded with some of his fastest laps of the race and it allowed him to put a little distance over his contenders. After an extended battle Tomac finally got around Sexton for second and had just over two laps to try and erase a near three-second deficit to Ferrandis.

As they came to the while flag Tomac posted the fastest lap of the afternoon to close to within mere bike lengths of the points leader. Ferrandis dug deep and withstood the challenge to pull out the moto win, 4.5 seconds ahead of Tomac as Sexton followed in a distant third.Eli Tomac captured his third runner-up finish in the past four races.

Sexton’s strong 1-3 effort landed him atop the podium for the second time in his career. It also signified his first podium result of the season. Tomac settled for the runner-up spot (2-2) and missed out on his first win of the year by a single point. Ferrandis rounded out the overall podium in third (5-1).
 
“I got two pretty good starts today and that was the difference,” said Sexton. “It feels so good to win after such a rough start to the season. I’ve been grinding at home in Florida, just trying to get better, and it finally paid off. We’ll head into this break with confidence, ready to come out even better.”
 
Ferrandis’ seventh podium result, combined with a ninth-place finish by Roczen (6-10), allowed the Frenchman to establish a significant lead in the 450 Class standings. Ferrandis now sits 47 points ahead of Roczen, with Tomac just a few points behind in third, 54 points out of the lead.
 
“I think the holeshot helped me get that (second moto) win,” said Ferrandis. “I was able to manage the pace and save energy. I didn’t know if it was Eli (Tomac) or Chase (Sexton) at the end, but I had enough to make a push. It feels good to come out on top of that battle with Eli. He’s such a tough competitor and a great rider. I’m really happy with the day.”Dylan Ferrandis finished third and now enjoys a comfortable lead in the championship standings.

The first 250 Class moto of the afternoon saw FXR/Chaparral Honda Racing’s Carson Mumford storm to the MotoSport.com Holeshot, followed by Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Justin Cooper in second. As Mumford sought to take advantage of his opportunity to be out front, Cooper applied heavy pressure and looked to seize control of the moto on the opening lap. However, Mumford successfully fended off the attack from the points leader and asserted himself in the lead. Behind them, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s RJ Hampshire slotted into third.
 
Mumford controlled the pace through the opening minutes, but Cooper started to inch closer and soon mounted another challenge eight minutes into the moto. The Yamaha rider was successful the second time around and worked his way past Mumford to grab the lead. The ensuing laps saw Mumford lose more positions as Hampshire took over second and Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Pierce Brown moved into third. Martin entered the picture from fourth and set his sights on the top three.
 
Out front, Cooper and Hampshire traded fast lap times as the distance between them fluctuated throughout the middle portion of the moto. Hampshire persisted and as they reached 10 minutes remaining in the moto he had closed to within less than a second. However, lapped riders worked in Cooper’s favor and briefly allowed him to extend his lead. Hampshire never let up and continued his charge to keep Cooper honest, but as time expired on the 30-minutes-plus-two-lap moto Cooper dug deep to find some late pace and left Hampshire behind. The championship leader charged to his first Moto 1 win of the season, 2.8 seconds ahead of Hampshire, followed by Martin in third, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Michael Mosiman in fourth and Team Honda HRC’s Hunter Lawrence in fifth. Team Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence, who sits second in the championship, finished a distant seventh.Jeremy Martin became the first repeat winner in the 250 Class.

When the gate dropped on the second 250 Class moto it was Cooper who put himself back up front with the MotoSport.com Holeshot, followed by Martin and Lawrence, who made slight contact as they jockeyed for position, which caused Lawrence to lose a couple spots. Martin then went on the attack and looked to make a pass on his teammate for the lead as Hampshire emerged in third.
 
The top five riders sat within five seconds of one another 10 minutes into the moto, with Martin applying constant pressure on Cooper as Hampshire patiently let things play out from third. Just before the halfway point of the moto Martin pulled the trigger with an inside pass entering the track’s whoop section. Cooper looked to counter but Martin made it stick. Shortly thereafter, Hampshire attempted to make a move for second, but briefly stalled his motorcycle and gave up third to Brown before continuing from fourth, just ahead of Lawrence.
 
Once he moved into the lead Martin was able to build a gap over Cooper, but in the waning minutes of the moto Cooper picked up the pace and closed back in. Martin responded and with two laps to go Cooper suffered a costly crash going up Horsepower Hill. He eventually remounted and reentered the race, but lost several positions. Unaware of his teammate’s misfortune, Martin carried on to the moto win and crossed the finish line 11.8 seconds ahead of Lawrence, who inherited second, with Hampshire third. Cooper soldiered home to finish eighth.RJ Hampshire’s runner-up finish was his second podium result of the season.

With his 3-1 moto finishes Martin prevailed with an unexpected overall win. His back-to-back victories made him the first repeat winner of the season in the 250 Class and gave him his 19th career win, which moves him into a tie with Ryan Villopoto for fifth all time.
 
“Coming into today (team owner) Bobby Reagan told me he didn’t know if I had what it takes at Washougal and that’s all the motivation I needed,” said Martin. “I know I got a little bit of a gift. It’s a bummer that Justin (Cooper) went down, you hate to see anyone go down like that. I’m just so happy to be up here. I’ve always kind of struggled here so it feels so good to get it done at Washougal.”
 
Hampshire finished in the runner-up spot (2-3), while Cooper hung on to a podium result in third (1-8).
 
Despite his adversity, Cooper added to his lead over Lawrence in the 250 Class standings. Eight points now separate the top two riders in the championship. Hunter Lawrence is third, 44 points out of the lead.
 
“With two laps to go I was trying to make a push on Jeremy (Martin),” explained Cooper. “I was going up the hill and got a weird kick. I’m not really sure what happened. It was in the shadows so it was hard to see. I ended up in a tough spot on the hill so it was hard to get going again. Obviously things can change quickly (in the championship). We’ll take this break, regroup, and come back strong to finish the season.”Justin Cooper’s third-place finish added to his lead in the championship standings.

LOKET (Czech Republic) 24 July 2021 – The first part of the weekend’s races in Loket have concluded with victories by Simon Jost in the EMX Open category and Maximilian Spies of Fantic Factory Team Maddii in EMX2t Presented by FMF Racing.

In EMX Open race one, it was Joel Van Mechelen who got a good start, with Filippo Zonta and Simone Croci right there as well. The championship leader (at the time) Nicolas Dercourt of Honda SR Motoblouz meanwhile was down in around tenth.

Zonta then took the lead, with Croci following as well, as Dercourt dropped to 14th.

Croci then closed in on the race leader, as Davide De Bortoli and Simon Jost battled for third, with the pair exchanging positions several times over the course of the lap.

Jost then dropped to fifth as De Bortoli and Micha-Boy De Waal of No Fear/Jumbo BT Racing Teamboth went through on the Slovakian rider.

Croci then briefly took the lead from Zonta, as De Bortoli and De Waal closed in on the leaders with just over 3 seconds separating the top four.

De Bortoli then passed Croci on lap eight and was able to get Zonta as well to become the new race leader. Zonta then crashed and re-joined in fifth to eventually finish the race in fifth place ahead of Jost.

De Bortoli took the win, with De Waal and Croci second and third, as Dercourt struggled to make his way up the field and ended the race ninth.

As the gate dropped for race two, it was Zonta who led the way, as De Waal had a big crash in the second corner. Zonta carried on out front, with De Bortoli wasting no time applying the pressure onto the leader.

By lap two, De Bortoli was the new race leader, Jost started to close in on Zonta as he set his sights on second place. Meanwhile Dercourt was having a much better start to the race as he battled in 6th.

De Waal did pick himself up after the crash in the start and managed to get up and carried on for 10 laps until deciding to pull out of the race.

The attention quickly moved to the front as Zonta and Jost went at it for second. The pair had a nice battle that saw Jost go through, for Zonta to fight back immediately but eventually it was the Slovakian rider who came out on top.

With 8 minutes and 2 laps to go, the gap between De Bortoli and Jost was 3.134 seconds, but a couple of laps later we saw some drama as De Bortoli crashed out of the lead.

Jost then inherited first place, with Tim Koch second and Zonta third, as De Bortoli dropped to fourth position.

De Bortoli then crashed again to finish the race 10th, while Jost took his first ever EMX race win, with Koch second and Zonta third.

In terms of the podium, it was Simon Jost who secured the top step of the podium, with Filippo Zontaplacing second and Davide De Bortoli second.

Just two rounds remain of the EMX Open Championship as the series heads to Kegums with De Bortoli leading the championship by four points over Dercourt, with Simon Croci third on 97 points.

Simon Jost: “I wasn’t expecting this result but anyway I’m feeling really good about it. I felt good the whole day. In time practice, I was fourth and in race one I had a little crash, I wasn’t able to finish where I wanted because I was only fifth. In race two, I was really struggling with my knee that is still not 100% and especially at the end of the race was hard to ride in this condition”.

Filippo Zonta: “Today I struggled a bit to find a good rhythm with my bike. In race one, I started really well with the holeshot but while I was second another rider hit me and I crashed. Anyway, I managed to come back to fourth position. In race two, I did another great start, took the holsehot, but anyway I did some mistakes and two riders passed me; despite that I was able to be third at the end of the race. Overall I’m happy because I did just two races and I’ve been both times on the podium”.

Davide De Bortoli: “I’m upset about the mistake I did in race two because I lost so many points in the championship. Today I was feeling really confident with the bike and also the speed was good so I’m happy also because I still have the red plate that I want to keep as long as I can. Latvia will not be that easy for me because is a sand track but anyway I’ll try to do my best, be there and fight for the win”.

In the first heat of the EMX2t Presented by FMF Racing it was Fantic Factory Team Maddii’s Federico Tuani who got a great start though immediately crashed which allowed the defending champion, Brad Anderson of Verde Substance KTM to take the lead.

Anderson was the rider in front, as Maximilian Spies of Fantic Factory Team Maddii got around Jonas Nedved for second, while Tuani was fighting back from the back.

Spies then caught up with Anderson and was looking faster than the leader. The German made several attempts to pass the Brit, though Anderson was quick to shut the door. The Verde Substance KTM rider did a good job to defend the lead for eight laps, until Spies was able to get the drive and pass for the lead.

Spies then opened a gap to Anderson, as Tuani was making great progress through the field to get into fifth.

By the end of the race Anderson was looking like he got second wind as he picked up the pace, but a mistake with a few laps to go put him out of contention for the race win as Spies crossed the finish line to take his first race win. Anderson was second and Nedved third with Tuani making a recovery up to fourth.

The second race saw Nedved out in front into the first corner, though Spies was quick to jump into first place. Anderson then took third from Putnam, as Tuani moved into fourth place.

Anderson then made a swift move into second place, as Tuani made the most of this opportunity himself, to catch Nedved off-guard and get himself into third.

Tuani then set his sights on Anderson, passing the Brit on lap three. As he then looked for an opportunity to close in on his teammate for the win.

Spies led the way until the end of the race, edging out lap by lap, but towards the later stages of the race Tuani was able to get the gap down to 2.238 seconds as Spies won, Tuani was second and Anderson third.

The podium saw Spies take his first EMX victory, with Anderson finishing second overall and Tuani third. This is exactly how the championship standings look right now, with Spies leading on 50 points, with Anderson second with 41 and Tuani with 40.

Maximilian Spies: “Finally I feel confident again after the injury I had in the last race of 2020 season in Trentino and now finally I feel confident and fast again. In race one I had a nice fight with Anderson, he’s really experienced so fighting with him was hard but in the end, I was able to pass him, get my speed and go for the win. Race two was easier and I was able to win without too much pressure. Now I’ll focus only on the EMX2T Presented by FMF racing Championship. I’m really looking forward to racing in Lommel and I hope to win again also there”.

Brad Anderson: “It has been a really difficult weekend, I struggled with the track for all day, luckily we’ll be in Lommel next week and I’m really looking forward to go there and fight in the sand with those guys. I want to thank all my sponsors and Verde Substance KTM for the support”.

Federico Tuani: “Overall it was a good day for me because I’m on the podium. In the first race I got the holeshot but then I had a big crash, and it was not easy to re-group because I was last and in the end, I was able to finish fourth. In race two I was feeling more confident and after a good race I was able to finish second. I’m happy to go to Lommel next week because I really love the track and I hope to fight soon with the fastest guys. I want to thank my family, my sponsors, and my team for helping me to make it possible”.

LOKET (Czech Republic) 24 July 2021 – The opening round of the 2021 FIM Women’s Motocross World Championshiphas concluded in Loket with Courtney Duncan of Bike it MTX Kawasaki dominated the field to go 1-1 and win the round of Czech Republic.

In race one, it was Duncan who took the holeshot while several riders including, Kiara Fontanesi, Larissa Papenmeier of Yamaha Racing 423 and Nancy Van De Ven of Ceres 71 Racing got caught up in a first turn incident.

Duncan then led Shana Van Der Vlist and Lynn Valk who got around Amadine Verstappen, while Fontanesi, Papenmeier and Van De Ven were fighting their way up to the top 5.

Lap by lap, Duncan edged out further, while Van De Ven, Fontanesi and Papenmeier continued their charge for valuable championship points.

In the end Duncan won the race by an impressive 22.534 seconds over Van Der Vlist, while Valk placed third. Van De Ven managed to break into the top five for fifth, while Fontanesi and Papenmeier were sixth and seventh.

In race two, it was Papenmeier who got a flying start, though a couple of corners later it was Duncan who led the way. Van Der Vlist got another good start and battled inside the top three, while Fontanesi and Van De Ven started around sixth and seventh.

While Duncan started the second heat much like the first, this time around Papenmeier was not letting her get away easy as she kept close with the Kiwi for quite a few laps. And while the German searched for a way around the defending champion, it was Fontanesi who was the fastest rider on track as she caught up with the two leading ladies.

As Fontanesi caught up with Papenmeier, this was the perfect opportunity for Duncan to open up a gap, as the two ladies behind her were locked in battle.

Eventually Fontanesi went through on Papenmeier for second, though not long after crashed and re-joined in fifth. She finished the race in eighth.

With three laps to go, we saw more drama as Duncan got caught up with a backmarker. The leader did go down but was able to pick herself up quickly to take the race win ahead of Papenmeier and Van De Ven.

With two race wins, it was Duncan who was the overall winner, with Van Der Vlist second and Papenmeier third. It is also how the championship looks right now as the ladies head into round two next weekend in Lommel, Belgium.

Courtney Duncan: “We have to be happy with the weekend of course starting the championship with two wins is more than I can ask for, so I’m really happy. And as you say, two different races, two starts really helped, especially in the first one where I got a little bit of a gap and maintained that lead. And then race two was a little bit closer, having Larissa there which was cool and then I came together with a backmarker with three laps to go but managed to maintain the lead and win the overall”.

“I don’t feel too different, last year I was also defending the championship and I feel every year I still have a little bit of pressure and a target on my back, but I just do the best I can do each weekend and that’s all I can ask for”.

Shana Van Der Vlist: “Before the weekend, I didn’t expect to be on the podium, but I am really happy. I like the track here in Loket. I had two good starts which was really important and I’m really happy how today went”.

Larissa Papenmeier: “The first heat wasn’t that great, I had a bad start, I got stuck behind a rider that crashed so I had to stop. I managed to get seventh eventually which I was not happy about, so I concentrated on the second heat. I got second, I came close to Courtney then Kiara passed me, I lost my rhythm, but I saw Kiara crashed so I was second again. I’m really happy with third overall at the first race, at least getting some points”.

HERLINGS RULED OUT OF CZECH GRAND PRIX AND CONTINUES TO ASSESS SHOULDER INJURYMXGP 2021 news

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Jeffrey Herlings will not take part in this weekend’s Grand Prix of the Czech Republic at Loket for the fifth round of the 2021 MXGP World Championship.

The 26-year-old underwent further scans on his left shoulder blade earlier this week. The initial fracture that had ruled him out of the second moto of his home Grand Prix last Sunday was found to be larger than originally thought. Herlings had been landed on by another rider at the start of the first race at Oss and although he was able to win the sprint he was forced out of the second outing. The four-times World Champion now has to convalesce to let the crack heal sufficiently. Jeffrey Herlings“I don’t have pain in my shoulder for day-to-day life but sports and especially something like motocross is a different story. We’ll sit out Loket with the aim to come back 100%. It’s a shame and something that wasn’t my fault but it is what it is.”

Le 24MX Tour enchaîne à Castelnau-de-Lévis.

21.07.21 – castelanu-de-lévis (81) – a.g.s. puech rampantCommuniqués

Une semaine après s’être confrontés dans la Manche, pilotes et équipes du 24MX Tour se retrouveront dès ce week-end dans le Tarn pour la troisième épreuve des Championnats de France Elite MX1, Elite MX2, Junior et Espoir. Alors qu’elles auraient dû organiser l’ouverture de ces compétitions en mars dernier, les équipes de l’AGS Puech Rampant ont une nouvelle fois su rebondir pour proposer cette étape sudiste devenue incontournable depuis 2016. Le terrain avec beaucoup de relief a souvent produits des courses à rebondissements. La chute de Boog en 2016 dans le tout dernier virage le privant de victoire est restée dans les mémoires. Tout comme l’on se souviendra longtemps du dépassement de Bourdon sur Aubin dans cette même ultime courbe offrant les lauriers à Izoird l’an dernier. Côté pratique, conformément aux réglementations, une jauge de 5 000 spectateurs est fixée, le pass sanitaire étant exigé pour toute personne présente sur la compétition.

Avantage Desprey en MX1.

Auteur d’un doublé l’an dernier au Puech Rampant, Maxime Desprey reste également sur un doublé la semaine dernière. Le pilote GSM Dafy Michelin Yamaha s’est emparé de la plaque rouge de leader pour cinq petits points et va être difficile à déloger. Champion de France en 2019, il a l’expérience pour gérer la course mais sa marge de manœuvre reste faible. Milko Potisek (Yamaha Drag’on Tek) et Cédric Soubeyras (Husqvarna 2B Up by Moraco) ont montré qu’ils étaient assez proches en terme de vitesse. Les départs vont une nouvelle fois être primordiaux. Le moindre fait de course aura des répercussions immédiates, d’autant que la fougue de Zachary Pichon (Rocket Junior Honda) ou l’expérience de Nicolas Aubin (OB1 Motorsport Gas Gas) seront au rendez-vous. En embuscade, Anthony Bourdon (Honda SR Motoblouz), Brice Maylin (Husqvarna) ou Daymond Martens (Kawasaki) pourraient également avoir des coups à jouer. Et que dire de la présence de Grégory Aranda (Kawasaki) ! Le Champion de France 2016, que l’on n’a pas vu sur l’Elite depuis 2019, est engagé à Castelnau-de-Lévis et aura une nouvelle fois l’occasion de nous montrer l’étendue de son talent.

Une plaque à défendre pour Goupillon en MX2.

Avec une victoire de manche cette année acquise la semaine dernière, Pierre Goupillon (WID Motorsports KTM) pointe en tête du Championnat 250cc. Treize points le séparent du deuxième David Herbreteau (737 Performance Gas Gas CBO) qui a renoué avec la victoire dans la Tarn après plusieurs années de disette. Troisième, Lucas Imbert (Yamaha New Bike) pointe déjà 21 longueurs. Autant dire que le leader à une petite marge qui va lui permettre de gérer son Championnat s’il performe sur le circuit du Puech Rampant. Reste à savoir si Herbreteau sera capable de rééditer la performance de la semaine dernière et si Arnaud Aubin (OB1 Motorsports Gas Gas), quatrième à 23 points, peut venir le concurrencer alors qu’il était en mesure de gagner en 2020. En lice en EMX 250, les coéquipiers du team 9mm Energy Drink Kawasaki Quentin-Marc Prugnières et Hakon Fredriksen seront de retour sur l’Elite. Le Champion de France Junior en titre va enfin pouvoir réellement se jauger par rapport à la concurrence nationale tandis que l’on a hâte de voir rouler le petit prodige norvégien. L’Albigeois Calvin Fonvielle (TMX Compétition Yamaha) aura également certainement à cœur de briller en tant que local de l’étape. Quant à Maxime Charlier (Tech32 Husqvarna), Julien Roussaly (Yamaha), Romain Pape (Kawasaki) ou Adrien Malaval (TMX Compétition Yamaha), ils semblent toujours en mesure de faire des coups.

Les frères Coenen, patrons du Junior.

Les Belges Sacha et Lucas Coenen se sont partagés les victoires de manche sur les deux premières épreuves. Ils sont pour le moment les plus rapides, aucun autre pilote ne semblant en mesure de suivre leur train d’enfer. Sacha a chipé la place de leader à son frère pour quelques points. Il semble mieux armé pour rester en tête mais les deux sont proches en termes de performance. Les pilotes de l’Équipe de France Junior Xavier Cazal et Marc-Antoine Rossi, respectivement troisième et quatrième, comptent 16 et 36 points de retard. Cazal est toujours dans le coup mais va devoir signer une grosse performance pour le rester. Rossi a vécu une épreuve difficile dans la Manche et aura à cœur de se refaire à Castelnau-de-Lévis. Son coéquipier chez Tech32 mais sur Husqvarna Diego Haution a montré qu’il avait la vitesse pour jouer aux avant-postes, tout comme ceux du team Yamaha MJC Ivano Van Erp et Kailis Reisulis qui vont devoir améliorer leur départ et gagner en régularité pour inquiéter les leaders.

A la poursuite de Valin en Espoir.

Dans la catégorie des plus jeunes, Mathis Valin (737 Performance Gas Gas CBO), grandissime favori avant l’ouverture, a confirmé qu’il était un ton au-dessus de la concurrence. Sa marge de manœuvre semble grande. Sa vitesse lui permet de compenser même de mauvais départs ou des petites chutes. Le jeune Vendéen a néanmoins laissé échapper la victoire à Ernée. Il a également commis des erreurs la semaine dernière. Paolo Maschio (KTM) et Lorenzo Siino (KTM) sont prêts à sauter sur la moindre occasion comme avait su le faire Amaury Maindru (Husqvarna) en ouverture. Le pilote de l’Equipe de France Espoir Tom Brunet (Husqvarna) est un peu derrière pour le moment à la quatrième place du Championnat. Lui aussi est en lice pour un podium dans le Tarn.

UNE HALTE EN BERRY POUR LE CHAMPIONNAT DE FRANCE INSANE-PARTS.COM

Le paddock du Championnat de France Supermotard insane-parts.com fait halte en Berry les 24 et 25 juillet pour la quatrième épreuve de cette saison 2021. C’est le circuit de Saint-Amand Colombiers (18) qui accueille l’événement, avec le Boischaut Moto Club aux commandes.

Dans la catégorie reine, Nicolas Cousin s’est installé en tête et le team SGR Grau Racing aligne deux pilotes affûtés, avec un absent de taille. La lutte en tête s’annonce encore passionnante. En S2, Sylvain Dabert bénéficie maintenant d’une confortable avance, devant les deux pilotes du team Speedwheel 974 qui ne lâchent rien.

Avec une partie terre bien travaillée, sur un circuit ramassé qui n’offre pas beaucoup d’occasions de dépassement, les pilotes vont devoir redoubler d’efforts pour chaque point, pour le plus grand plaisir des spectateurs.

BETA SDMCORSE MX TEAM – PRESS RELEASE n. 13

Beta SDMCorse Mx Team
Motocross World Championship of Holland

Motocross World Championship of Holland

 

The Dutch GP took place on the Oss track where a World Championship race had not been held since 1998, tracked by the sandy bottom in a configuration typical of northern European tracks with many deep channels that increased the difficulty for the drivers in race.


In qualifying, the two Beta SDM Corse Team riders were unable to find the right feeling with the Dutch track, for the team it was the first official outing on a sandy track and Jeremy and Jimmy had to work hard to find the best set-up for their 450. Van Horebeek got the 18th place and Clochet, a fund not congenial to him, is 30th.


In race 1 Jeremy started very well and entered around the tenth position but in the first corners due to a driver who crashed in front of him he could not avoid it and was involved in the crash, Van Horebeek restarted in last position and with a great race pace recovered positions after positions ending with an excellent 17th place. When Clochet managed to take his pace a few laps from the end, he crashed and closed in the rear.


The second heat once again saw Van Horebeek exceptional at the start and on the first lap he passed in 12th place, unfortunately due to a contact with an opponent he was forced to retireClochet is 26th at the finish.


Next appointment on July 25th on the Loket track in the Czech Republic.


Daniele Marchese
comments on the race as follows: “A race unfortunately not easy for our riders, Jeremy showed great speed in the heats showing he can stay in the top ten, too bad the two races where the crashes penalized him without those we would have led to home other important points, for Jimmy not an easy race, the sand is not really his favorite background. We continue to work and look forward to Loket to improve our performance. “

Campionato del Mondo Motocross GP Olanda

Campionato del Mondo Motocross GP Olanda


Il Gp d’Olanda si è corso sulla pista di Oss dove non si teneva una gara di Mondiale dal lontano 1998, tracciato dal fondo sabbioso in una configurazione tipica delle piste del nord Europa con molti canali profondi che hanno aumentato la difficoltà per i piloti in gara.

Nelle qualifiche i due piloti del Team Beta SDM Corse non sono riusciti a trovare il giusto feeling con la pista olandese, per il team è stata la prima uscita ufficiale su pista con fondo sabbioso e Jeremy e Jimmy hanno dovuto lavorare molto per cercare il miglior assetto per la loro 450. Van Horebeek ha ottenuto il 18° posto e Clochet, fondo a lui non congeniale, è 30°.

In gara 1 Jeremy è scattato molto bene e si è inserito intorno alla decima posizione ma nelle prime curve a causa di un pilota che gli è caduto davanti non ha potuto evitarlo ed è rimasto coivolto nella caduta, Van Horebeek è ripartito in ultima posizione e con un gran ritmo gara ha recuperato posizioni su posizioni andando a chiudere con un ottimo 17° postoClochet quando era riuscito a prendere il suo passo a pochi giri dalla fine è caduto chiudendo nelle retrovie.

La seconda manche ha visto ancora una volta Van Horebeek eccezionale alla partenza e al primo giro è transitato in 12° piazza, purtroppo a causa di un contatto con un avversario è stato costretto al ritiro. Clochet è 26° al traguardo.

Prossimo appuntamento il 25 Luglio sulla pista di Loket in Repubblica Ceca.

Daniele Marchese commenta così la gara:”Una gara purtroppo non facile per i nostri piloti, Jeremy ha dimostrato una grande velocità in manche facendo vedere di poter stare nella top ten, peccato le due gare dove le cadute lo hanno penalizzato senza quelle avremmo portato a casa altri punti importanti, per Jimmy una gara non facile, la sabbia non è proprio il suo fondo preferito. Continuiamo a lavorare e aspettiamo Loket per migliorare le nostre performance.”

COMMUNIQUÉ DE PRESSE

A Paris, le 20 juillet 2021

Dylan Ferrandis lance le  » Trophée du Meilleur Rookie « Fer de lance du motocross français sur le continent américain, Dylan Ferrandis n’oublie pas pour autant son histoire. En particulier le parcours sportif qui lui a permis de faire ses armes et d’accéder au plus haut niveau de la compétition internationale.

Reconnaissant de la filière mise en place depuis des années par la Fédération Française de Motocyclisme, l’Avignonnais a souhaité soutenir le sport moto dans l’Hexagone en récompensant, avec l’approbation de cette dernière, les « rookies » de l’année dans les quatre catégories du 24MX Tour, à savoir Espoirs, Juniors, Élite MX2 et Élite MX1 et dans les deux catégories du Championnat de France Minivert, le 65cc et le 85cc.

Dylan versera une prime de 1000 euros aux pilotes français qui auront obtenu le plus de points à l’issue des Championnats concernés pour leur première année de participation, quels que soient leurs âges.

Herbreteau renoue avec la victoire à Rauville-la-Place en MX2. Victoire et plaque rouge pour Desprey en MX1.

18.07.21f – rauville la place (50) – moto club du val d ouveCommuniqués

Difficile de rêver meilleures conditions pour la deuxième des six épreuves des Championnats de France Elite et Junior qui s’est déroulée ce dimanche dans le cadre du 24MX Tour 2021 . Grand soleil, température estivale, légère brise rafraîchaissante, piste superbe et parfaitement travaillée par les bénévoles du moto-club du Val d’Ouve, et spectacle dans toutes les catégories ! Malgré une jauge à 1 000 spectateurs, le public a une nouvelle fois répondu présent à l’appel du motocross. Le MCVO peut s’enorgueillir d’avoir une nouvelle fois organisé une superbe épreuve dans des conditions compliquées après avoir hébergé la finale l’an dernier.

Doublé et plaque rouge pour Desprey en MX1.

Le Champion de France 2019 Maxime Desprey (GSM Dafy Michelin Yamaha) réussi en général plutôt bien dans la Manche. Cette nouvelle édition l’a encore confirmé puisque, très solide, il remporte les deux manches de la journée. Il s’empare également de la plaque rouge de leader du Championnat avec cinq points d’avance sur Milko Potisek (Drag’on Tek Yamaha). Le Bourguignon a réussi un excellent premier départ pour s’emparer des commandes dès le second virage. Tandis que Potisek partait à la faute et rétrogradait de la deuxième à la cinquième position, il a réussi à attaquer fort dans les premières boucles pour creuser un écart significatif sur Cédric Soubeyras. Il a gardé le pilote Husqvarna 2B Up by Moraco à bonne distance toute la manche sans jamais réussir à creuser un écart « confortable ». Sans commettre d’erreur, il franchit la ligne avec sept secondes d’avance. Son second départ a été un peu moins bon. Troisième derrière Potisek et Pichon (Rocket Junior Honda) il a mis du gros gaz dans les premiers tours pour prendre les commandes dans la troisième boucle. Il a ensuite « géré » Potisek pour finir avec près de dix secondes d’avance. Le Nordiste Potisek prend la deuxième place de l’épreuve. Il a été dans le coup dans les deux manches mais une petite chute au départ de la première l’a empêché de pouvoir attaquer Desprey. Il a ensuite trouvé assez rapidement la faille sur Pichon mais n’a pu inquiéter le vainqueur du jour.

Grâce à bonne sortie de grille et sa bonne performance de la première course (deuxième), Cédric Soubeyras intègre le Top3 de l’épreuve et du Championnat. Moins bien parti en seconde manche, il a claqué des chronos après s’être défait dans les trois premiers tours successivement de Nicolas Aubin (OB1 Motorsport Gas Gas) et de Nicolas Dercourt (Honda SR Motoblouz). Mais l’écart avec la tête était trop important et un problème de suspension en fin de manche l’a incité à assurer le podium final. Il termine quatrième derrière Zachary Pichon qui signe un joli Top 3 en seconde manche après avoir réalisé le holeshot et mené la manche quelques tours. Malheureusement, une chute avec Nicolas Aubin dans le premier tour de la première manche l’empêche de faire mieux que huitième pour un Top 5 final. Anthony Bourdon (737 Performance Gas Gas CBO) prend lui la quatrième place de la journée en réalisant sa meilleure performance dans la catégorie en première manche, troisième. La seconde course a été plus compliquée pour le rookie de la catégorie qui ne termine que huitième. A noter que le leader de l’EMX Open Nicolas Dercourt, qui roulait hier du côté de Oss, a mouillé le maillot pour terminer sixième (7-5), tandis que Nicolas Aubin a chuté en première manche et est resté sixième presque toute la seconde (9-6).

Herbreteau de retour au premier plan en MX2.

Sept ans après avoir été sacré Champion de France Junior, après plusieurs années galères où il n’avait pas réussi à confirmer, David Herbreteau renoue avec le succès dans la Manche en s’imposant en Elite MX2. Alors qu’il était à deux doigts de raccrocher, le Vendéen a rejoint la structure 737 Performance Gas Gas CBO pour se relancer. Bien lui en a pris, il prend le meilleur sur Pierre Goupillon (KTM). En première manche il s’est contenté de la deuxième position après un excellent départ derrière Goupillon qui avait réalisé le holeshot. S’il a tenté de suivre les traces du leader dans les premières dix minutes, il n’a pu tenir sur la distance et termine deuxième à vingt sept secondes. La seconde course a été plus exaltante. Deuxième derrière le Suisse Luca Diserens (Honda SR Motoblouz) après le tombé de grille, il a vu Goupillon revenir dans le premier tour. Il a d’abord cédé sous les assauts du Breton avant de contre attaquer, de repasser, puis de se défaire de Diserens pour s’installer en tête. Derrière, Goupillon est parti à la faute. Reparti cinquième, il a vite passé Imbert, Pape (Kawasaki) et Diserens pour se réinstaller en deuxième position. Il n’a ensuite jamais été en mesure de combler son retard et termine donc deuxième de la journée à égalité de points. Il se console en s’emparant de la tête du Championnat avec une avance significative de treize points sur le vainqueur du jour.

Arnaud Aubin (OB1 Motorsport Gas Gas) complète le podium d’une épreuve qui l’a vu réaliser des mauvais départs alors qu’il est en général maître dans cet exercice. Résultat, il a été contraint de mettre du gros gaz à deux reprises alors qu’il était parti entre le Top10 et le Top 15. Le Normand franchit la ligne d’arrivée à la quatrième puis la cinquième position. La vitesse était là. Rageant ! Lucas Imbert (Newbike Yamaha) termine juste derrière, à un point. Le Sudiste coaché par Fabien Izoird, qui revient d’une année galèrex réalise deux manches sérieuses terminées à la sixième puis la quatrième place. Maxime Charlier (Tech32 Husqvarna – 3-8) et Julien Roussaly (Yamaha – 10-3) ont quant à eux vécu une épreuve similaire avec une bonne manche terminée dans le Top3 et une autre course plus compliquée entre mauvais départs et chutes.

Victoire et plaque rouge pour Sacha Coenen en Junior.

Comme à Ernée la victoire s’est jouée en 125cc entre les jumeaux Coenen. Sacha, qui découvre la catégorie, a pris sa revanche sur Lucas, lui chipant même la plaque rouge. Auteur d’un excellent départ en première manche, il a pris la tête après que l’auteur du holeshot Nicolas Duhamel (VHR KTM) ai tordu son guide chaîne et déraillé dans le troisième virage. Le pilote 9mm Energy Drink Bud Racing Kawasaki remporte la manche haut la main. La seconde manche semblait également lui être promise après qu’il a pris la tête dès le second virage. Une petite chute en début de course a permis à son coéquipier de frère Lucas de passer, alors qu’il était parti troisième mais été rapidement revenu en P2. Sacha se contente de la deuxième place de la manche derrière son frère. En première, Lucas était sorti beaucoup trop large au premier virage. Loin dans le peloton, il est remonté sixième dès le premier tour mais n’a pas été en mesure d’aller chercher Xavier Cazal pour la seconde place. Il termine néanmoins deuxième de la journée devant le Réunionnais.

Une fois de plus, Xavier Cazal a réalisé deux courses très sérieuses mais a manqué de vitesse pour inquiéter les leaders. Le pilote VHR KTM a résisté au retour de Lucas Coenen en première manche après avoir dépassé Antonin Mille, Killian Vincent et Adrien Petit. En seconde manche il s’est défait de son coéquipier Nicolas Duhamel pour terminer troisième. Ce dernier n’est pas verni puisqu’après avoir chuté durant les qualifications, il a du abandonner sur problème mécanique en première manche alors qu’il était en tête. Les coéquipiers du team Yamaha MJC Ivano Van Erp (4-3) et Kailis Reisulis (7-5) terminent aux quatrième et cinquième place. Les deux ont été à la peine avec leurs départs et ont cravaché dans le peloton pour obtenir ces résultats. La vitesse était pourtant là , notamment pour le Hollandais Van Erp qui termine fort la seconde course. Adrien Petit (Yamaha) signe une belle première manche en cinquième position avant de scorer une manche blanche. Marc-Antoine Rossi (Tech32 KTM) a vécu une épreuve très difficilie puisqu’après avoir tordu son guide chaîne dans une ornière lors du tour de reconnaissance de la première manche, il a été pris dans une chute en seconde pour une triste huitième place finale (6-12).

Prochain rendez-vous.

Le programme est dense durant cet été suite aux différents reports liés à l’épidémie de COVID-19. Pilotes et teams n’auront pas le temps de souffler, puisqu’ils se retrouveront dès le week-end prochain du côté d’Albi, dans le Tarn, pour la troisième épreuve, avant de reprendre la direction de la Bretagne et du MC Romagné le week-end suivant.

Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team MXGP Press release

Second podium cette saison pour Romain Febvre
Romain Febvre a offert ce weekend un second podium au Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team lors de la manche Néerlandaise du Championnat du Monde MXGP de Motocross à Oss.

La première manche dans laquelle Romain signera le record du tour fut un classique du genre, avec une bagarre impliquant quatre des meilleurs pilotes mondiaux sur une piste sablonneuse et vallonnée typique des Pays Bas. Signant un nouveau holeshot – le troisième de la saison – en première manche, Romain sortait large dans le second virage et se retrouvait second derrière Glenn Coldenhoff, le héros du public venu en masse. Un sacré duel allait opposer les deux hommes pendant la majorité de la course, le Néerlandais contrant les multiples attaques de Romain qui finissait par aller à la faute ; reparti troisième il revenait vite second en prenant le meilleur sur le champion en titre, mais en tentant une nouvelle attaque sur le leader sa roue avant se planta dans une zone de sable mou, le reléguant en quatrième position. La seconde manche fut tout aussi passionnante à suivre, Romain se retrouvant très vite second avant de se retrouver dans les barrières bordant la piste après un saut. Reparti septième il n’allait pas relâcher ses efforts, revenant quatrième pour accrocher la troisième marche du podium du jour. Il est désormais quatrième du championnat, à égalité de points avec le second et le troisième !

Son équipier Ivo Monticelli a lui connu un autre GP difficile. Auteur d’un superbe départ mais ratant le holeshot en sortant large au premier virage, Ivo allait être surpris quand le pilote devant lui ne sautait pas le premier saut du circuit ; ne pouvant réagir puisqu’il était dans les airs, il percutait son rival, chutait violemment et repartait dernier. Il allait revenir dix huitième et voyait son début de manche gâché par un pilote qui chutait devant lui et l’obligeait d’aller dans une zone boueuse à l’extérieur du virage ; pointé vingtième au premier passage, il allait franchir la ligne d’arrivée onzième.

Romain Febvre : « J’ai le sentiment que ce GP aurait du être le mien ; j’ai pris deux bons départs – premier puis second – et j’avais la vitesse pour m’imposer mais de petites erreurs m’ont couté la victoire. J’ai signé le holeshot en première manche mais je suis sorti trop large au second virage. J’étais le plus rapide, mais Coldenhoff a résisté à toutes mes attaques ; j’ai appris à être patient mais je n’ai pas trouvé l’ouverture et j’ai fini par chuter deux fois. La seconde manche fut similaire puisque j’ai chuté alors que j’attaquais le leader ; j’ai fait une erreur en bas d’une descente et ait quasiment sauté dans les barrières. Je me suis relevé rapidement, le rythme était élevé et je suis revenu quatrième. Je suis sur le podium mais c’est une victoire que je veux, on verra le weekend prochain à Loket ou j’ai gagné en 2019. »

Ivo Monticelli : « Tout le monde pousse toujours très fort en début de course, et quand je suis arrivé sur le saut en montée j’ai été surpris par Jeffrey qui n’a pas sauté comme tout le monde. J’étais en l’air et je n’ai pas pu l’éviter, j’en suis désolé mais c’est le sport. La moto a souffert et je n’ai pu la reprendre qu’une fois que tout le monde soit passé, mais j’ai trouvé un bon rythme pour revenir dix huitième. Mon second départ a été bon mais Coldenhoff a chuté devant moi au second virage si bien que je me suis retrouvé dans la boue à l’extérieur pour éviter de le percuter. J’étais vingtième, je suis revenu dixième jusqu’à ce que Seewer me passe avant la fin de course. J’ai fait deux bonnes manches, avec une bonne vitesse et sans faire d’erreurs, si bien que je suis confiant pour la suite. »

The Dutch rule in Oss as Elzinga and De Waal win in EMX

OSS (The Netherlands) 17 July 2021 – Saturday’s race action in Oss is done and dusted with Dutch riders Rick Elzinga from TBS Conversions KTM Racing Team and Micha-Boy De Waal of No Fear/Jumbo BT Racing Teamvictorious in the EMX250 and EMX Open categories.

Both riders were met by an eager Dutch crowd who urged them on from start to finish as they craved their way through the sand on their way to victory.

In the opening EMX250 race it was SM Action Racing Team YUASA Battery’s Kevin Horgmo who was the early race leader before crashing, which allowed Fantic Factory Team Maddii’s Nicholas LapucciJorgen-Mathias Talviku of No Fear/Jumbo BT Racing TeamYago Martinez from Team VRT Nordpesca Holland, Elzinga and Dave Kooiker of Hutten Metaal Yamaha Racing through, among others, as the Norwegian dropped to 8th.

Talviku and Elzinga then had a close battle for second, as the Dutchman went through on the Estonian and then the Husqvarna rider came under more pressure this time from Martinez who was also able to pass him. Talviku later crashed in the race a couple of times to finish the race ninth.

Everts was having a good ride as he made his way into the top five, though after an unlucky crash dropped down the order but was eventually to pick himself back up and finish the race inside the top five.

On lap 7 Elzinga was able to get around Lapucci for the lead as Kooiker lost quite a few positions and dropped down to sixth, allowing the likes of Horgmo, Martinez, Hutten Metaal Yamaha Racing’s Andrea Bonacorsi and Liam Everts of KTM Liamski through.

While it looked like Elzinga was on track to take a race win, Lapucci caught him out on the final lap to take back first position and go on to win the race ahead of the Dutchman, with Horgmo finishing third.

In race two, it was Lapucci who took the holeshot as Talviku quickly took the lead away from the Italian. The Estonian then crashed out of first place, with Lapucci forced off track due to the incident, and as a result lost valuable positions as he re-joined in 7th.

Team VRT Nordpesca Holland’s Davide Braceras then assumed first place, as Everts sensed the perfect opportunity to go after his first EMX250 race win. By lap three Everts was the new race leader, as Elzinga and Lapucci made their way back up to the leaders.

Elzinga then passed Lapucci, Bonacorsi and Braceras in one lap as Everts extended his lead to 4 seconds over Kooiker and Elzinga. Elzinga then got himself into second, as Lapucci worked his way up to third and then it was game on as Elzinga and Lapucci battled it out.

In the final laps of the race the pair caught onto the back of Everts who started to make mistakes under pressure and on the final lap, Elzinga was able to take the lead, as Everts successfully defended second place from Lapucci.

Elzinga was the race winner, with Everts second and Lapucci third. The same three riders took to the podium, with Elzinga taking the victory on home soil, with Lapucci second overall and Everts making his first EMX250 podium appearance in third.

Lapucci now leads the championship with a 17-point advantage over Horgmo, as Bonacorsi sits third.

Rick Elzinga: “To win at your home round is amazing and with the home crowd finally back at the races. I was sick for a long time so 25-minute race was not an easy thing to do and then my starts I was around tenth or fifteenth, so coming back from the mid-pack was really hard, I’m just really happy about the win”

“Lommel will be the team’s home GP, so I hope to get another podium. I train there a lot, I am familiar with the track, and I think I can do some good things there”.

Nicholas Lapucci: “In the end it was not a bad day. A part of me is happy but also a part of me is a little bit upset but this is part of the races. The second race I had a problem when Talviku crashed and I went off the track, so I needed to work a lot to come back and take second overall. The important thing is to save the points position and go to Lommel pumped to maybe take the overall in the sand”.

“We work pretty hard in the sand, and I have enjoyed riding and today I showed good things and I will take away the positives. I got the race win in race one and showed good speed in race two, I did everything I could to try to take the guys in front, but they were fast too, and this is a part of racing”.

Liam Everts: “In the first race it was quite tough for me as I had a little crash, I was going too fast and made another mistake going in the uphill but still managed to get fifth. In the second race I got a good start and I was fourth, I almost had a crash myself but then I saw Nicholas and Kevin off, so I took advantage of this and made the most of it to get around leader and then go one more lap, and leave them behind. Then two laps from the end I made a little mistake which I think cost me the win, it was quite close in the end which is a shame but nonetheless I am very happy”.

“Home GP next where I grew up and learned to ride. I’m really looking forward to that, but this is already one goal achieved this year, the podium and to have the fans back is great. I saw and heard many fans cheering. I’m really looking forward to Lommel”.

As the gate dropped for the first EMX Open race, it was De Waal who took the lead from the get-go, as Nicholas Dercourt of Honda ST Motoblouz followed behind.

Former MXGP rider, Ken De Dycker got a good start and was inside the top five, before getting himself into second behind De Waal. The race leader, De Waal, then continued to stretch out his lead lap-by-lap, setting consistent lap times throughout the entire race.

Dercourt then pushed De Dycker to third, as De Waal extended his lead to 9.484 seconds and remained the fastest rider on track by almost 2 seconds compared to the riders behind him.

Davide De Bortoli was fighting his way through the field as he got around Joel Van Mechelen for fourth place. In the end De Waal was the race winner with Dercourt second and De Dycker finishing third.

In race two it was once again De Waal who took the holeshot after the race was re-started due to a false start. De Waal led the way with De Bortoli, Dercourt, Simeo Ubach of 137 KTM Motorsport and Simone Croci rounding out the top five on the opening lap.

De Dycker was down in 10th and had to work hard to make his way through the field, but eventually fell down to 12th where he finished the second heat.

Much like the first race, De Waal led from start to finish, while De Bortoli worked hard to keep Dercourt behind him, as the pair finished the race second and third. In the end it was De Waal who was the overall round winner in front of his home crowd, securing his team their first overall win, as Dercourt placed second overall and De Bortoli was third on the podium.

De Court now takes the championship lead, with De Bortoli four points behind him in second and De Waal sitting in third.

Micha-Boy De Waal: “Today was really good. My goal was to find a way to stay on the bike and today I managed to do that. I liked the track, it’s sand of course and I managed to take two race wins and two holeshots, so it was a good day definitely. For me it’s the first time I win two races and the overall and at the home round so it’s really special, for the team as well as it’s their first win also, but we are far away from the lead so we need to think of some way to get close”

Nicholas Dercourt: “I’m super happy with my weekend. I did not think it would unfold like that. It was tough and technical, especially since I was not familiar with the track. But I had a lot of fun with the team. We are building the foundations and we are trying to evolve little by little and not miss any steps. So, it is really great. I am happy to have had two good races and get the red plate. Thank you to everyone, sponsors and my team, Joss and Seb”.

Davide De Bortoli: “For me it’s a surprise to be on the podium today because this type of track is not my favourite. I don’t feel so confident in the sand but today I felt good to finish in third position and now the championship is interesting. I am happy to be second in the championship and I hope to do better in Loket on a track terrain that is my favourite”.

Barcia Triumphs at Spring Creek for First
Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Victory of the Season

Martin Sweeps 250 Class in Front of Home Crowd; Becomes Sixth Different Winner

MILLVILLE, Minn. (July 17, 2021) – The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, reached the halfway point of the 2021 season with its sixth round of action from Spring Creek MX Park and the Circle K Spring Creek National, presented by Frescados Tortillas. Minnesota fans were greeted with perfect weather that saw clear, sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80’s, while racers were challenged by the circuit’s dramatic elevation changes and infamous sand whoops. Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia made his long-awaited return to the top step of the podium and grabbed a moto win en route to his first 450 Class victory of the season. In the 250 Class, Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Jeremy Martin continued that division’s historic first half with an emphatic effort in front of the home crowd, in which he swept both motos to become the sixth different winner in as many races. Justin Barcia earned his first win since 2018 and the first victory for GASGAS.

As the gate dropped for the opening 450 Class moto of the afternoon it was Barcia who emerged with the MotoSport.com Holeshot ahead of Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo, FXR/Chaparral Honda Racing’s Coty Schock, and the Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing teammates of Dylan Ferrandis and Christian Craig. At the completion of the opening lap it was Barcia, Cianciarulo, and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb inside the top three. Ferrandis, the championship leader, crossed the line fifth, while Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen, second in the standings, was caught up in a frightening first-turn incident that left the German in need of medical assistance and force him to withdraw from the moto.
 
Out front, Barcia continued to lead the way with Cianciarulo in pursuit and in search of a way around. Craig began to apply heavy pressure on Webb and made the pass for third with 20-minutes remaining. Just laps later, Craig’s Star Racing Yamaha teammates Ferrandis and Aaron Plessinger started to push their way to the front, both overtaking Webb. The march forward didn’t stop there for Ferrandis, as he muscled his way by Craig into third near the halfway point of the moto.
 
Cianciarulo continued to press Barcia for the lead, however, a costly mistake saw him lose the back end of his Kawasaki and crash out of second place, which moved Ferrandis and Craig into second and third and eventually forced Cianciarulo to retire from the race. With just over eight minutes remaining, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac, who started 14th, entered the battle up front as he clocked the fastest laps of the race and blitzed his way past Craig for third. Tomac’s charge soon led him to the back wheel of Ferrandis as a three-way fight for the lead took shape.
 
The Frenchman successfully erased his deficit to Barcia and spent the waning laps of the moto in constant search of a way around, which resulted in a near crash between the two, while simultaneously fending off heavy pressure from Tomac for second. Barcia never wavered and was able to fend off numerous pass attempts by Ferrandis to hang on for his first moto victory of the season by just over a second. Ferrandis and Tomac completed the top three, with Craig fourth and Plessinger fifth.Eli Tomac earned his second runner-up finish of the season.

Roczen used a pair of quick passes to move out front and lead the field around on the opening lap, ahead of Barcia and Bogle. Tomac came around in 10th, while Ferrandis was mired outside of the top-20 due to a crash coming down one of the hills.

Roczen was on a mission and in search of redemption out front, while Barcia was in hot pursuit to back up his impressive first moto result. As Roczen and Barcia paced each other, Ferrandis went down for a second time, costing him several more spots in the process. Team Honda HRC’s Chase Sexton closed in on Bogle and found his way around to take over third.

Roczen proved to be unstoppable and carried on to secure his fourth moto win of the season by 5.3 seconds over Barcia. Sexton finished third, followed by Tomac in fourth, while Ferrandis showed his resiliency with an impressive come-from-behind effort to finish fifth.Dylan Ferrandis fought through a pair of crashes in Moto 2 to finish third overall.

Barcia’s consistency, anchored by his Moto 1 win, carried him to the overall victory (2-1), which marked his first winning effort since the final round of the 2018 season and signified the first Pro Motocross victory for GASGAS in its debut season as a manufacturer. Tomac finished in the runner-up spot (3-4) for his third podium result in the past four races, while Ferrandis’ relentless charge in the second moto helped land him third overall (2-5), missing out on a second-place tiebreaker with Tomac. Roczen rebounded from a disastrous start to the day to finish ninth overall (40-1).
 
“It’s a lot to take in,” said Barcia. “I felt great on the bike all day and it’s just such an awesome feeling to be back on the top step of the podium again. The fans were just awesome out there. It’s been a while, but I never gave up and left it all on the track today. The team has been working hard to get me comfortable on the bike and I think today showed that everything is coming together. Hopefully, we can keep this momentum rolling into the rest of the season and click off a few more wins.”
 
The adversity endured by each of the top two riders in the division resulted in a significant shift in the point standings, as Ferrandis’ podium effort allowed him to gain 13 points and establish a 32-point lead over Roczen, who did all he could to minimize the damage. By virtue of his win, Barcia vaulted from fifth to third in the standings, 55 points out of the lead.
 
“I’m just disappointed in myself today,” said Ferrandis, who entered the day on a three-race win streak and has now finished on the overall podium at all six rounds thus far. “It was a difficult day. I crashed twice in that second moto and didn’t give myself a fighting chance. I’m here to win and that’s really what I want to do. I’ll go back to work and get ready to come out stronger next weekend.”
 
“It was definitely a hard one in the first moto. I got banged up really good and I need to make sure that my ribs aren’t broken,” explained Roczen. “I’ll be really sore tomorrow but as soon as I checked myself (and didn’t have any serious injury) I knew there was no question in my mind I was going to come back out here (for Moto 2) and give my best. That’s what we were born to do. I knew I didn’t have the best gate pick, but I got pretty lucky and made it work, and then rode a smart race. I’m just glad I could finish, and I did all I could for what it was.”Ken Roczen rebounded from a DNF in Moto 1 to take the Moto 2 victory
and salvage a challenging afternoon.

The opening 250 Class moto of the day saw Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Justin Cooper capture the MotoSport.com Holeshot ahead of his teammates, Nate Thrasher and Martin, along with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Max Vohland. As the 40-rider field came around to complete the opening lap it was Cooper followed by Vohland and Martin. Championship point leader and Team Honda HRC rider Jett Lawrence was credited with 14th to start the race. 
 
Cooper quickly set the pace and opened a comfortable gap over his competition, while Martin took control of second from the rookie Vohland after persistent pressure throughout the opening minutes of the moto. Just moments later, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Michael Mosiman closed in on Vohland and eventually took over third. Back out front, crowd favorite Martin started to find his rhythm and began to chip away at Cooper’s advantage.
 
Entering the closing minutes of the race, Martin closed quickly on the race leader and started searching for a way around his teammate. After several attempts, Martin grabbed a handful of throttle traversing down the steep “Mount Martin” and dove into the lead with an impressive pass. Once out front he quickly pulled away and went unchallenged in the final laps to take his third moto win of the season by 7.5 seconds over Cooper. Mosiman completed the podium in third, followed by the Team Honda HRC siblings of Jett and Hunter Lawrence in fourth and fifth, respectively.Jeremy Martin was dominant at his home track and became
the sixth different 250 Class winner this season with a 1-1 sweep.

The final 250 Class moto of the afternoon saw Martin pick up where he left off in the opening moto with the MotoSport.com Holeshot, narrowly edging out Cooper, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner, and Mosiman. As the field came around to complete the opening lap it was Martin, Cooper, and Mosiman leading the way, while Jett and Hunter Lawrence found themselves mired in 10th and 11th, respectively.
 
With a clear track ahead, Martin easily asserted control on the layout he grew up riding, continuously inching away from Cooper and Mosiman, who started to make a run for second. At the halfway point of the 30-minute-plus-two-lap moto, Mosiman began showing Cooper a wheel and eventually made an aggressive move to make a pass stick and take control of the runner-up spot.
 
Martin was calm, cool, and collected for the entirety of the moto and clinched the 1-1 sweep by 9.3 seconds. Mosiman finished strong to earn the best moto result of his career in second, followed by Cooper in third. Jett Lawrence overcame a crash that included multiple riders and left him with a damaged motorcycle to salvage sixth.Michael Mosiman captured a career-best finish in the runner-up spot.

The dominant outing for Martin gave the Minnesota native his third win at Spring Creek and the 18th victory of his career. It also makes Martin the sixth different winner to open the season, continuing a historic level of parity that has carried through the halfway point of the championship. Mosiman earned a career-best finish in second overall (3-2) to edge out Cooper, who finished third (2-3), via tiebreaker. Lawrence finished just off the podium in fourth (4-6) and now has back-to-back finishes outside the top three after beginning the season with four consecutive podiums.
 
“That one felt good and ranks up there pretty high out of the wins throughout my career,” said Martin, who is battling through a series of injuries and has been forced to miss one race this season. “It’s always special to win in front of the hometown crowd, and doing it by sweeping both motos, that just makes it even sweeter. It’s been a tough season for me, but I needed to get back out here and start racing whether I was 100% or not. A huge thanks to all the fans for the support today, they really kept me going and allowed me to dig deep.”
 
A consistent day by Cooper, combined with a challenging afternoon for Lawrence, resulted in a new championship leader as the Yamaha rider now leads the young Australian by six points. Hunter Lawrence maintains his hold on third, 33 points out of the lead.
 
“That’s what it’s all about. We’re at the halfway point and we’re going after this championship. That’s the mindset,” said Cooper. “I honestly rode pretty mediocre today. I left a lot on the table, I feel. I wasn’t that comfortable (on the bike), so I got to take the blame on this one and do better. I felt like we could have been battling for the overall win today, but we’ll take it. We’ve got the red plate now. We’ll keep grinding, and simply need to be better. I can’t afford to leave anything on the table and that’s what it’s going to take to win this championship.”
 
“This was definitely a nightmare of a day,” said Jett Lawrence. “My starts have really been putting me down and back in the pack. It’s just not helping me. Cooper’s been getting those starts and that’s what we need to be doing. I was brought up to never give up. We’re only halfway. I don’t know how many points back I am, but we’re going to keep charging.”Justin Cooper (32) took over the championship lead with a third-place finish.

Bailey Malkiewicz Stands In for Injured Jeremy Sydow 
Yamaha Motor Europe is pleased to welcome Australian motocross star Bailey Malkiewicz into the Hutten Metaal Yamaha Official EMX250 team as a temporary replacement for the injured Jeremy Sydow.

After a positive winter period where he showed signs of great promise aboard his GYTR kitted YZ250F, Sydow was, unfortunately, unable to start his 2021 EMX250 campaign in Matterley Basin, England, on 27th June due to an injury sustained at a Dutch Motocross Championship race in Arnhem, The Netherlands, one-week prior. The 21-year-old German damaged his pancreas in a minor crash, and after spending several days in the hospital under the watchful eye of medical professionals, a decision to operate was made. 

Sydow underwent a successful operation on Tuesday 23rd June at Isala Zwolle Hospital in The Netherlands. The injury is expected to take at least 10-weeks to heal; therefore, Yamaha has called upon Malkiewicz to fill the German’s seat for the next four rounds of the EMX250 Championship. 

Malkiewicz is a 19-year-old Australian best known for his success at the 2018 Junior Motocross World Championship, where he won the Junior 125cc world title aboard a Yamaha YZ125. He also contested the 2020 FIM MX2 World Championship and finished 14th in the final classification despite sustaining a torn ACL in his right knee. 

Looking forward to making a return to Europe, Malkiewicz has recovered from an ACL reconstruction and is relishing the chance to race the highly competitive European Championship with a GYTR kitted YZ250F as a substitute for Sydow. The youngster landed in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on Wednesday 14th July and will make his EMX250 debut this weekend at the MXGP of The Netherlands in Oss, with the second round of the 2021 EMX250 Championship set to take place on Saturday 17th.

Bailey Malkiewicz
Hutten Metaal Yamaha Official EMX250 Rider

“I’m excited to reunite with Yamaha as I’ve had great success with them in 2018 as Junior World Champion 125. When preparing for my knee surgery, my personal team and I planned for this return. It’s reassuring that the Hutten Metaal Yamaha Official EMX250 team have demonstrated their professionalism in developing the right strategy for my return to ensure it’s safe and can yield results at the right time. Mentally I’m stronger than ever before. I’d like to thank everyone that made this happen especially Thorsten, the team, my father Steve, and my manager, as there was so much work to do in a short period. Without them, this opportunity wouldn’t have come together.”

Thorsten Lentink
Yamaha Motor Europe MX Racing Co-Ordinator

“Jeremy had a very good off-season where he worked really hard to be at the top of his game for the EMX250 season this year. He was looking good, and we were expecting to celebrate some great achievements, so it is very unfortunate that he has sustained this injury. While we continue to focus on helping Jeremy return to full fitness, we also want to see the GYTR kitted YZ250F represented at a high level. So, with that in mind, I am very happy we were able to reach a deal with Bailey Malkiewicz. Bailey is a talented young rider that caught our attention last year. He is a rider that has a lot of potential, and since he has already had success with Yamaha and the Yamaha Family in the past as the winner of the Junior World Championship on a YZ125, he was the obvious choice to step in for Jeremy. We look forward to working with Bailey, and to give him the chance to return to Europe where he can show his potential on the world stage.”

Suite à l’allocution du Président de la République du lundi 12 juillet dernier, de nouvelles mesures applicables aux activités motocyclistes entreront en vigueur dès le mercredi 21 juillet.

A partir de cette date, le pass sanitaire deviendra obligatoire pour les sportifs et pour les spectateurs, sur toutes les manifestations sportives regroupant a minima 50 personnes.

• Je ne suis pas vacciné
Je réalise un test de dépistage RT-PCR ou un test antigénique négatif réalisé dans les 48h précédant mon arrivée sur le lieu de la manifestation.

Dès parution des textes règlementaires, les clubs pourront se rendre sur leur espace dédié afin de télécharger le protocole sanitaire  actualisé de la Fédération Française de Motocyclisme. 

Nous devons organiser nos manifestations avec la Covid-19, ce qui engendre des conditions nouvelles tant pour les pilotes que pour les Moto-Clubs. Il est indispensable de les appréhender pour poursuivre nos activités et ainsi faire perdurer notre passion.

VIALLE TO SIT OUT DUTCH MXGP TO HASTEN HAND INJURY RECOVERY

MXGP 2021 news

MX2 World Champion Tom Vialle will miss this weekend’s Grand Prix of the Netherlands at Oss and the fourth round of 2021 MXGP to recover further from his fractured right hand. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider and winner of the opening round of the season in Russia has been advised to remain on the sidelines for the forthcoming fixture. Vialle suffered a small break in his right hand during a training accident prior to the second GP of 2021 in Great Britain. The 20-year-old tried to compete at Matterley Basin and the Italian Grand Prix at Maggiora the following weekend but suffered too much pain and had to withdraw from action. Vialle’s fracture has almost healed but any further stress on the bone could produce a setback. The Frenchman will therefore eye the Grand Prix of Czech Republic at Loket for a competitive return on July 25th.

Tom Vialle: “The Grand Prix in Oss came just a bit too soon. The bone has not healed 100% so we still need to wait a little before practicing and racing again. We will make another check-up next week and I hope to ride in Loket.”

Nouvelle gamme Competition 2022 : les deux-temps en force !

8 juillet 2021

Nouvelle gamme Competition 2022 : les deux-temps en force !

Nouvelle gamme Competition tout-terrain 2022 : une implication sportive accentuée avec les nouvelles YZ125 et YZ125 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition

Se battre jusqu’à la victorYZone
L’année 2020 a vu les pilotes officiels Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP et MX2 se battre aux avant-postes à chaque épreuve, Jeremy Seewer et Jago Geerts terminant chacun leur saison avec un titre de vice-champion du monde, MXGP pour le premier et MX2 pour le second.

Au cours de la saison dernière, Yamaha s’est particulièrement illustré, les pilotes YZ450F ayant obtenu deux des quatre premières places du classement MXGP 2020, tandis que les pilotes YZ250F ont pris trois des cinq premières places du classement MX2 2020, assurant ainsi à Yamaha le titre mondial des constructeurs MX2. Aux États-Unis, où la saison 2021 de Supercross est déjà terminée, les pilotes aux couleurs Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing ont dominé les championnats 250 SX Est et Ouest 2021 au guidon de leur YZ250F.

Un engagement total et permanent en motocross
Depuis que Yamaha a remporté son tout premier championnat du monde de motocross il y a presque 50 ans, la société s’est totalement engagée à soutenir ce sport et à créer une gamme de machines performantes pour les pilotes de tous âges. Yamaha a été l’une des premières marques japonaises à produire des motos de course pour les jeunes pilotes, et la première à réinventer des cross quatre-temps modernes.

Aujourd’hui, Yamaha représente une force majeure dans le motocross, à la hauteur de son engagement total auprès de chaque pilote. La marque accorde une importance toute particulière aux courses de motocross regroupant les plus jeunes, permettant aux futurs champions d’affiner leurs compétences avant d’évoluer dans la cour des grands. C’est pourquoi Yamaha gère depuis 2015 le programme YZ bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup qui offre aux compétiteurs en YZ125, YZ85 et YZ65 la possibilité de se qualifier chaque année pour la SuperFinale de la bLU cRU Europe Cup et de se faire connaître auprès d’un public international lors du prestigieux Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations.

Pour renforcer son engagement en motocross, Yamaha lance une toute nouvelle YZ125 2022, et propose des améliorations majeures pour les modèles YZ250 et YZ85 qui donneront à chaque pilote la possibilité d’exploiter leur véritable potentiel. En route vers la victorYZone !

Toute nouvelle YZ125 : Agilité. Performance. Victoire.

En 2022, la toute nouvelle YZ125 dispose d’un moteur entièrement redessiné, plus performant, d’un châssis largement amélioré et d’un habillage plus fin et plus radical. Voici la YZ125 la plus compétitive de tous les temps ! Bénéficiant d’une puissance nettement supérieure, d’une grande facilité d’utilisation, d’une maniabilité optimisée, d’un freinage plus puissant et d’une ergonomie améliorée, la nouvelle YZ125 devient le choix privilégié des pilotes qui veulent disposer du meilleur matériel pour gagner en confiance, engranger de l’expérience et hisser leurs performances à un niveau supérieur. Ses spécifications illustrent clairement la volonté de Yamaha de faire bénéficier aux pilotes du meilleur équipement dès leur adolescence, et de les préparer à de futures victoires en tant que sportif professionnel.

Nouveau moteur 125 cm³ : des performances optimisées et un comportement amélioré
Les ingénieurs Yamaha ont créé le moteur le plus puissant jamais monté sur une YZ125 de série. En quête de performances, l’équipe de développement a imaginé un tout nouveau moteur deux-temps 125 cm³ qui développe une puissance significativement plus élevée à moyen et haut régime. Pratiquement tous les composants majeurs du moteur 2022 sont nouveaux. Son remaniement complet permet d’augmenter de manière significative la puissance maximale afin de donner à la YZ125 un réel avantage dès que la grille s’abaisse. La puissance accrue, associée à une plus grande facilité d’utilisation et à une meilleure gestion du surrégime, permet aux pilotes de profiter en totalité du gain de puissance et de surpasser leurs adversaires sur tous les secteurs de la piste.

Nouvelle conception de culasse, du cylindre et du piston
La culasse, le cylindre et le piston de la YZ125 ont été entièrement redessinés pour offrir des performances accrues et optimiser la puissance. Ces principaux changements affectent la chambre de combustion, l’échappement et le cylindre et contribuent au meilleur  rendement de la combustion.

Nouveau système YPVS
Pour compléter les changements de culasse et de cylindre, un nouveau système YPVS (Yamaha Power Valve System ou Système Yamaha de diagramme d’échappement variable) a été mis au point. La levée maximale de la nouvelle valve d’échappement a été modifiée, et les moments de son ouverture et de sa fermeture sont également affinés afin d’améliorer les performances du moteur et les réactions de la moto.

Nouveau carburateur Keihin et clapets V-Force
L’une des principales caractéristiques du nouveau moteur est l’utilisation d’un carburateur Keihin PWK de 38,1 mm équipé d’un Power Jet contrôlé par solénoïde qui offre un coup de boost instantané lorsque cela est nécessaire. Le nouveau carburateur comprend un TPS (Throttle Position Sensor), qui associé à un CDI contrôlé par une cartographie 3D, assure un calage d’allumage optimisé. Clapets V-Force, design de collecteur d’échappement inédit, nouvelle admission et nouveau carburateur permettent au pilote de la YZ125 de bénéficier d’une accélération plus franche dès le départ et d’une puissance plus explosive en sortie de virage.

Bielle plus longue et vilebrequin plus lourd

D’autres modifications internes contribuent à l’augmentation de la puissance du nouveau moteur, notamment une bielle plus longue et un vilebrequin légèrement plus lourd. Il en résulte une inertie plus importante qui optimise le comportement du moteur et l’équilibre du vilebrequin pour répondre aux exigences engendrées par ce surplus de puissance.

Nouveau système d’admission d’air à haut rendement
L’une des principales caractéristiques de la nouvelle YZ125 est son système d’admission d’air entièrement redessiné. En modifiant l’arrière du cadre et les deux caches latéraux, et en remodelant la base de la selle, les ingénieurs de Yamaha ont réduit de 15 % la résistance à l’air entrant et ont réussi à augmenter considérablement l’efficacité globale de l’admission. Ceci contribue non seulement à améliorer de manière significative la puissance de traction à mi-régime et à haut régime ainsi qu’à améliorer le caractère de surrégime, mais aussi à affiner la réponse à l’accélération à bas et moyen régime pour un fonctionnement plus homogène.

Nouveau collecteur d’échappement et silencieux plus court
Pour 2022, les dimensions et la forme de l’échappement ont été transformées afin de correspondre aux autres modifications apportées au moteur, dans le seul but d’optimiser la puissance et l’agrément. Le diamètre du collecteur est légèrement réduit à son point le plus large, et le silencieux se veut plus court de 50 mm.

Transmission renforcée et plus souple
La transmission à 6 vitesses de la YZ125 a été renforcée pour 2022 afin de gérer l’augmentation de la puissance maximale. Le rapport de réduction secondaire est légèrement augmenté grâce à l’utilisation d’un jeu de pignons avant/arrière de 13/49 – précédemment 13/48 – et pour améliorer la motricité, les 5e et 6e rapports ont légèrement été modifiés. Un nouvel arbre de commande de changement de rapport et un ressort de rappel redessiné offrent plus de douceur au passage des vitesses ; et pour gérer la puissance accrue de ce moteur, la nouvelle YZ125 dispose de ressorts d’embrayage améliorés.

Habillage plus affirmé et compact

La YZ125 2022 profite d’un réservoir plus fin, d’une nouvelle selle et elle arbore des motifs inédits qui lui confèrent un look radical, moderne et athlétique, en harmonie avec les performances impressionnantes de son moteur – tout en permettant au pilote d’accéder à une maîtrise du châssis encore supérieure.

Selle plus plate
Pour optimiser le pilotage, libérer les mouvements et faciliter les transferts du poids du corps, la surface supérieure de la selle a été aplatie en abaissant l’avant de 6 mm et en relevant l’arrière de 5 mm, tandis que le nouveau réservoir s’intègre parfaitement à l’avant de la selle. Pour faciliter l’entretien, une nouvelle fixation de selle à boulon unique a été choisie.

Réservoir et radiateur plus étroits
La YZ125 est l’une des motocross les plus légères et les plus agiles de sa catégorie. Le millésime 2022 se montre encore plus élancé grâce à l’utilisation d’un nouveau réservoir et de radiateurs étroits qui en font la YZ125 la plus compacte de son histoire. La largeur entre les genoux du pilote est réduite de près de 36 mm pour offrir une réelle sensation de minceur et d’agilité, et améliorer l’ergonomie et la mobilité du pilote.

Nouvelle conception des garde-boue et des caches latéraux
Pour mettre au point le nouveau système d’admission d’air à haut rendement, les caches latéraux, le garde-boue arrière et le dessous de la nouvelle selle ont été redessinés, de manière à faciliter le flux d’air circulant dans la boîte à air. La forme du garde-boue avant a également été revue pour donner un aspect plus aérodynamique et dynamique.

Nouvelle conception d’arrière de cadre
La YZ125 est équipée d’un cadre semi-double berceau en aluminium, bénéficiant d’une technicité et d’une légèreté inédites. Pour 2022, l’arrière du cadre amovible intègre un nouveau point de fixation pour accueillir un silencieux plus court, tandis qu’un nouvelle traverse surélevée permet d’améliorer l’efficacité de l’admission en offrant plus de facilité à l’air entrant. Cette nouvelle traverse accueille également le nouveau point de fixation de la selle à boulon unique pour un entretien aisé.

Paramètres de suspension révisés
Les suspensions avant et arrière KYB de la YZ125 sont considérées comme les références de la catégorie. Elles intègrent des clapets qui offrent un excellent amortissement à mi-vitesse. Pour 2022, la fourche et l’amortisseur arrière présentent des caractéristiques d’amortissement révisées améliorant les performances du châssis à basse vitesse.

Frein avant plus puissant et frein arrière plus léger

Pour une puissance de freinage accrue et plus de précision du pilotage, ce nouveau modèle dispose à l’avant d’un nouvel étrier à deux pistons plus rigide et d’un disque redessiné de 270 mm de diamètre. Doté de pistons de 25,4 mm de diamètre et de nouvelles plaquettes qui augmentent de 30 % la surface de contact avec le disque, ce nouveau système plus puissant permet au pilote de réduire ses chronos en freinant plus fort et donc plus tard.

Coloris et finitions de nouvelle génération
La nouvelle YZ125 adopte une nouvelle finition bicolore Icon Blue qui associe le célèbre Icon Blue de Yamaha avec un bleu mat foncé. Le tout nouvel habillage et les nouveaux motifs intégrés accentuent l’allure dynamique et athlétique de cette 125 cm³ de nouvelle génération. En leur proposant une machine plus compétitive et attrayante, Yamaha confirme encore son engagement auprès des jeunes compétiteurs.

YZ125 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition

En plus de la YZ125 Icon Blue, Yamaha propose la YZ125 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition[2], qui donne à tout jeune pilote en herbe la possibilité de posséder une moto directement inspirée de nos machines d’usine. Dotée d’un coloris noir exclusif et de motifs inspirés des motos Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP et MX2, la YZ125 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition incarne la plus ultime des 125 cm³ de motocross Yamaha.

Nouvelle YZ250 : Deux-temps. Première place.

Rares sont les machines de motocross qui ont réussi à rivaliser avec la Yamaha YZ250 deux-temps dans l’histoire de ce sport, sa popularité et son palmarès restant hors pair. C’est une YZ250 de série maniée par Håkan Andersson qui permit à Yamaha de remporter son tout premier championnat du monde en 1973 – le premier de nombreux titres de champion du monde FIM 250 cm³ et de Supercross AMA récoltés au cours des décennies suivantes par les plus grands pilotes de la discipline.

Aujourd’hui, la réputation et la popularité de cette remarquable moto de course sont plus fortes que jamais auprès de pilotes qui apprécient sa légèreté, sa simplicité mécanique, son look et ses performances. Il est juste de dire que la YZ250 est une véritable légende dans le monde du tout-terrain – peu d’autres modèles cross ont des pages Facebook dédiées et animées par des milliers de fans !

Pour 2022, l’évolution de cette motocross à succès se poursuit. La nouvelle YZ250 arbore un tout nouvel habillage ultra-étroit qui affine son profil pour en faire l’une des motos les plus dynamiques. Mais le nouveau modèle représente bien plus qu’un simple remodelage cosmétique. Un freinage plus puissant, une suspension révisée, de nouveaux composants légers et un système d’admission à haut rendement constituent quelques-unes de ses nouvelles spécifications.

Habillage ultra-étroit et silhouette rectiligne
La YZ250 est équipée d’un tout nouvel habillage ultra-étroit, similaire au design utilisé sur la toute nouvelle YZ125, et présente une silhouette rectiligne qui confère à la moto un look agressif et affirmé. Le nouveau réservoir et les nouveaux radiateurs réduisent l’espace entre les genoux du pilote et favorise sa mobilité, tandis que l’habillage compact offre une sensation de légèreté et d’agilité qui renforce le caractère athlétique du modèle.

Selle plus plate
Outre un habillage plus étroit, la YZ250 2022 profite d’une nouvelle selle dont la surface supérieure plus plate améliore l’ergonomie de la moto et facilite et accélère le transfert de poids avant/arrière. Le nouveau garde-boue arrière et les caches latéraux améliorent l’efficacité de l’admission d’air. Le garde-boue avant présente un aspect plus net et plus dynamique, tandis que les caches latéraux et le garde-boue arrière ont été redessinés pour améliorer l’efficacité de l’admission d’air. Des évents arrières de plus grande taille sont intégrés aux caches latéraux, et le dessous de la selle ainsi que la forme du haut du garde-boue arrière sont imaginés pour optimiser la circulation de l’air. L’efficacité d’admission qui en résulte permet d’améliorer les performances à haut régime. Pour s’accorder avec la nouvelle admission d’air, la YZ250 est équipée d’un nouvel échappement dont la forme a été revue et les dimensions modifiées.

Freins avant et arrière plus légers et plus puissants

La nouvelle YZ250 est dotée d’un nouveau système de freinage puissant qui offre des performances et des sensations accrues tout en réduisant le poids. Le disque avant de 270 mm a le même diamètre que sur le modèle précédent, mais grâce à l’installation d’un nouvel étrier plus rigide et de pistons de plus grand diamètre (25,4 mm), le système de freinage bénéficie d’une surface de contact des plaquettes 30 % plus élevée. Une plus grande rigidité de l’étrier et une plus grande surface de plaquette offrent une puissance de freinage exceptionnelle ainsi qu’une sensation précise pour un freinage du bout des doigts. Le frein arrière a également été amélioré avec l’installation d’un disque de 240 mm de diamètre légèrement plus petit – de 5 mm – et d’un étrier de conception nouvelle qui offre la même surface de contact des plaquettes et les mêmes performances de freinage que le modèle précédent, tout en gagnant près de 100 gr.

Paramètres de suspension révisés La fourche KYB SSS de 48 mm de diamètre et la suspension arrière KYB Monocross à biellettes de la YZ250 constituent des références du secteur. Pour 2022, les réglages d’usine ont été revus afin d’améliorer encore les caractéristiques d’amortissement à basse vitesse.

Des composants qui participent au gain de poids
D’autres gains de poids, minimes mais néanmoins appréciables, ont été obtenus grâce à l’utilisation d’un autre levier d’embrayage et d’une nouvelle couronne de transmission.

Nouveaux coloris et motifs
La YZ250 2022 arbore une finition bicolore Icon Blue dynamique ainsi que des motifs inédits, prévus pour résister aux exigences du pilotage en motocross.

YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition Pour 2022, Yamaha lance une nouvelle YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition ; une finition aux couleurs Monster Black et des motifs inspirés des machines d’usine qui rendent cette motocross légendaire encore plus attrayante sur piste et dans les paddocks. C’est la première fois que ce pack exclusif de coloris et de motifs est proposé sur la YZ250. Il s’inspire des motos de l’équipe Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP et MX2.

YZ85 : Toute victoire se mérite.

De nombreuses légendes actuelles du motocross ont débuté sur la Yamaha YZ85. Légère, agile, rapide et fiable, il s’agit d’une version minimaliste des machines de course Yamaha aux performances exceptionnelles. Dotée de l’essentiel des technologies de motorisation et de châssis profitant aux YZ125 et YZ250, la nouvelle YZ85 de 2022 reste la meilleure machine pour se préparer à une future carrière de pilote professionnel. Avec un nouvel habillage compact, une selle plus plate et une série de modifications du châssis, les changements apportés à la nouvelle YZ85 reflètent ceux de la toute nouvelle YZ125 – et comme sa grande sœur, la nouvelle YZ85 est conçue pour offrir un comportement plus affirmé, plus efficace et plus athlétique aux pilotes qui visent la victorYZone.

Design innovant et dynamique
Le nouveau style 2022 s’apparente à celui des modèles YZ de cylindrée supérieure. Le nouvel habillage compact arbore une ligne horizontale puissante qui, avec une selle plate et des caches latéraux redessinés, confère une position plus assurée et agressive. La nouvelle déclinaison bicolore présente des zones contrastées de Icon Blue et de bleu foncé mat, tandis que les nouveaux motifs résistent aux conditions difficiles, ce qui permet à cette moto de course high-tech de conserver son apparence tout au long de la saison.

Nouvel habillage élancé
Pour 2022, la YZ85 est équipée d’un habillage plus étroit qui offre au pilote une plus grande liberté de mouvement pour un meilleur contrôle lors des phases d’accélérations, de freinages et dans les virages. Les protections de radiateur redessinées sont plus étroites de 25 mm à leur point le plus large et présentent désormais une configuration gauche-droite uniforme qui contribue à un plus grand équilibre de la moto du point de vue du pilote.

La YZ85 est également équipée d’un nouveau garde-boue avant dont la partie supérieure favorise le flux d’air vers le radiateur pour un refroidissement efficace et des performances moteur toujours élevées. Hérité de la YZ125, ce nouvel habillage compact prouve l’ADN commun des modèles YZ.

Selle plus plate et réservoir redessiné

Comme la YZ125, la nouvelle YZ85 est équipée d’une selle plus plate qui permet au pilote de se mouvoir plus facilement. L’ergonomie est encore améliorée par le nouveau réservoir de 5 litres arborant un bouchon redessiné qui offre une plus grande liberté de mouvement vers l’avant. La selle est pourvue d’une nouvelle fixation à boulon unique qui facilite et accélère l’entretien.

Prise d’air à haut rendement en position arrière
Les nouveaux caches latéraux de la YZ85 remplissent deux rôles importants : Premièrement, leur conception lisse et étroite favorise la manœuvrabilité du pilote pour un transfert rapide entre avant et arrière. Deuxièmement, ils sont dotés de nouveaux évents arrière qui permettent un flux d’air plus direct vers la boîte à air du moteur, offrant ainsi une plus grande efficacité d’admission pour de grandes performances.

Performance de frein arrière plus progressive
Pour un freinage arrière plus progressif, la YZ85 se dote d’un nouveau maître-cylindre avec un sous-réservoir intégré. Cette solution se substitue au réservoir et au tuyau de raccordement séparés du modèle précédent pour apporter un freinage plus naturel et linéaire et générer un retour d’informations précis.

Arrière du cadre en aluminium léger et nouveau bras oscillant
Pour 2022, le châssis de la nouvelle YZ85 profite d’un nouvel arrière de cadre en aluminium 570 gr plus léger que l’unité en acier utilisée sur le modèle précédent, une réduction de poids significative qui contribue également à la centralisation des masses.

Autre nouveauté, le bras oscillant a été redessiné et présente un nouvel équilibre entre sa rigidité longitudinale et sa rigidité en torsion. Ce changement subtil mais significatif améliore la stabilité du châssis et permet de transmettre la puissance au sol plus efficacement.

Round 3 of the MXGP World Championship took place this weekend at the historic Maggiora circuit.

In qualifying, Wilson Todd managed to post an impressive 11th, while Hammal struggled and managed to grab 28th, stating it as « intense ». Moving into the first race, both riders missed out on a good start and had to see what they could achieve from the back of the pack. A stone through the radiator of #20 would cause issues as he lost coolant and power but was still able to salvage a 15th place finish. A small crash set Hammal back, and he would eventually finish in 28th in race one.

In race two, a first corner crash took Todd as a victim and would leave him having to make his way from dead last. On a difficult to pass track, he eventually made it to 18th to finish 18th overall. Unfortunately, an electrical issue, perhaps from a stone, hampered Hammal and he was forced to retire from the race.

The team now has a weekend off before heading to Oss next weekend.

« Qualifying went well for Wilson in 11th, Taylor struggled a bit with qualifying but managed to get 28th. I feel like they were both riding well, but the results unfortunately didn’t reflect this. Wilson took a stone to the radiator in race one, losing all his coolant and some power – although it’s a testament to the new KX250 which still managed to hold up the whole race. Unfortunately in race two, he got caught in a first corner crash, it’s one of those tracks that’s hard to pass so fair play for making it to 18th from last. Taylor had a small crash in the first one which set him back, and in the second race there was an electrical fault, again perhaps to a stone or something – we’ll look into it when the bike gets back to the workshop. « Wilson Todd« It was a tough weekend, I didn’t ride too bad, qualified 11th. But when it came to the start I was outside the top 20 – A stone damaged my radiator so I lost all the coolant and power, I managed to make it home in 15th. Props to my mechanic Jordan who got the engine swap dialed in over lunch. Race two I went down in the first turn and came back from last to 18th, struggling to find places to pass riders. »Taylor Hammal« Tough weekend, it started off very tense in qualifying. Both races felt good and I was pretty happy with my speed, I was able to pass on a track that was very one line. Unfortunately, I had an electrical issue causing a DNF last race. Hopefully, get a good couple of weeks practice in the sand ready for Oss »

Motocross World Championship Round 3 Gp of Italy

 

The third round of the 2021 world championship took place on the legendary Maggiora track, the temple par excellence of world motocross, the Piedmontese track returns to host a GP after a few seasons and the organizers have prepared the circuit in an exceptional way, only second heat made the ground very heavy.

In qualifying Jeremy Van Horebeek struggles to find the right feeling and set-up to be able to express his full potential and that of his Beta and has to settle for 22nd positions at the gate. Jimmy Clochet 27th.

In the first heat Jeremy from a position at the gate that was not easy at the start tried to limit the damage but at the first corner he moved into the positions at the bottom of the standings, Van Horebeek thanks to a masterful race conduct that saw him set excellent times and great determination manages to climb the rankings going to occupy the eleventh position under the checkered flag. Clochet also thanks to a crash did not allow him to do better than 30th position.

The second heat was characterized by the rain that fell copiously on Maggiora, Van Horebeek after a shrewd start trying not to make mistakes recovered lap after lap setting excellent times and managed to take home the tenth final position. Clochet thanks to a good start and an attacking race won his first world points thanks to the 17th place finish.

Jeremy Van Horebeek with the points gained in Maggiora is in tenth position in the world rankings.

Next appointment on July 18th on the Oss track in the Netherlands.

Daniele Marchese Team Manager: ”Positive day for our team here in Maggiora, Jeremy did not have a good qualifying because we could not find a good setting to have a good position at the gate and this complicated the two heats for us. However, thanks to a gritty and determined driving in race 1 from over the twentieth position he finished eleventh and in race 2 despite the mud he finished 10th. Good performance also for Jimmy who collected the first points in the world championship also considering his young age. The result is positive in line with the two previous races and now we are moving to Oss in the Netherlands for the first race on the sand.”

Il terzo round del mondiale 2021 si è corso sulla mitica pista di Maggiora, tempio per eccellenza del motocross mondiale, la pista piemontese ritorna ad ospitare un Gp dopo alcune stagioni e gli organizzatori hanno preparato il circuito in modo eccezionale, solo l’abbondante pioggia nella seconda manche ha reso il terreno molto pesante.

Nella prima manche Jeremy da una posizione al cancello non facile in partenza ha cercato di limitare i danni ma alla prima curva transita nelle posizioni in fondo alla classifica, Van Horebeek grazie ad una condotta di gara magistrale che lo ha visto far segnare ottimi tempi e grande determinazione riesce a risalire la classifica andando ad occupare l’undicesima posizione sotto la bandiera a scacchi. Clochet complice anche una scivolata non gli ha permesso di fare meglio della 30° posizione.

La seconda manche è stata caratterizzata dalla pioggia che è scesa copiosa su Maggiora, Van Horebeek dopo una partenza accorta cercando di non commettere errori ha recuperato giro dopo giro facendo segnare ottimi tempi ed è riuscito a portarsi a casa la decima posizione finaleClochet grazie ad una buona partenza e una gara all’attacco ha conquistati i suoi primi punti mondiali grazie alla 17° piazza finale.

Jeremy Van Horebeek con i punti conquistati a Maggiora si trova in decima posizione della classifica mondiale.

Prossimo appuntamento il 18 Luglio sulla pista di Oss in Olanda.

Daniele Marchese Team Manager: ”Giornata positiva per il nostro team qui a Maggiora, Jeremy non ha avuto una buona qualifica perché non siamo riusciti a trovare una buon setting per avere una buona posizione al cancello e questo ci ha complicato le due manche. Comunque grazie ad una guida grintosa e determinata in gara 1 da oltre la ventesima posizione ha concluso undicesimo e in gara 2 nonostante il fango ha chiuso 10°. Buona prestazione anche per Jimmy che ha raccolto i primi punti nel mondiale vista anche la sua giovane età. Il risultato è positivo in linea con le due gare precedenti e adesso ci trasferiamo a Oss in Olanda per la prima gara sulla sabbia.”

Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team MXGP Press release

Victoire de manche pour Romain Febvre en Italie
Romain Febvre a remporté à Maggiora en Italie du Nord sa première manche de la saison, signant le holeshot pour aller s’imposer avec brio et consolider sa troisième place au championnat pour le compte du Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team.

Ayant signé aux essais le quatrième temps chrono dans la même seconde que l’auteur de la pôle, Romain allait parfaitement exploiter sa position sur la grille pour signer le holeshot – son second consécutif – et contrôler la première manche. Ne faisant pas la moindre erreur sur ce circuit ‘historique’ comportant de forts dénivelés, Romain allait creuser l’écart sur ses adversaires et se permettait même de saluer son team en pitlane lors du dernier tour avant de célébrer sa victoire par un heel clicker sur le saut d’arrivée. C’est juste avant le départ de la seconde manche que la grosse averse annoncée par la météo allait finalement se déverser, rendant la piste d’autant plus délicate que cette averse allait durer. Ne réussissant pas une aussi bonne envolée qu’en première manche Romain allait rapidement pointer septième, sachant qu’il devait encore gagner quelques places pour remporter le GP ; gêné par les projections de boue du pilote devant lui il allait partir à la faute, se relevant sans ses lunettes et avec des gants maculés de boue. Se refusant à rentrer aux stands il continuait ainsi, perdant quelques places en chutant à deux autres reprises. Douzième de la manche et cinquième du GP, Romain occupe la troisième place du championnat.

En étant une seconde moins rapide que son équipier aux essais, Ivo Monticelli s’assurait une neuvième place sur la grille. Etrennant une tenue spéciale élaborée par Alpine Stars pour son GP national, Ivo allait longtemps évoluer dans le top dix de la première manche avant de perdre deux positions suite à une petite erreur. Contraint de s’arrêter en seconde manche pour changer de lunettes, Ivo pointera alors vingt sixième avant d’aller chercher le point de la vingtième place.

Romain Febvre : « Ce fut une très belle première manche ! Je signe le holeshot et mène toute la course, avec un bon feeling et sans faire la moindre erreur, content d’offrir ce résultat au team et à nos sponsors qui font tant pour moi. Ils font tous du bon travail, et je suis heureux de leur donner ce succès en retour, tout en étant le plus rapide. Je savais que ma femme et ma fille suivaient la course à la télévision, elles ont dû être excitées elles aussi. Mon second départ ne fut pas si bon mais j’ai fait deux bons premiers tours pour revenir septième ; j’étais alors derrière Jonass, et j’ai pris beaucoup de projections de boue sur mes gants et mes lunettes en essayant de le doubler. Je n’étais pas à l’aise sans lunettes et avec des gants boueux, et j’ai chuté à trois reprises ; après la première chute mes gants étaient maculés de boue, ce qui m’empêchait d’être précis avec la poignée de gaz. J’étais en mode survie, car je ne voulais pas m’arrêter pour changer gants et lunettes, cela aurait pris trop de temps. Je suis bien sûr déçu, car cela aurait pu être un super weekend compte tenu du résultat de la première manche. »

Ivo Monticelli : « La journée avait bien débuté avec un bon tour en qualification, et je suis arrivé ici confiant après ces chutes en Russie et en Angleterre. A l’entrainement je suis plus relax dans mon pilotage, en première manche je roulais tendu si bien que je termine douzième en partant dixième. La pluie qui est tombée en seconde manche m’a contraint à m’arrêter pour changer de lunettes après dix minutes ; je suis reparti vingt sixième, et ait pu regagner quelques places pour entrer dans le top vingt. Ce n’est pas le résultat que j’espère mais je veux rester positif, j’ai finalement marqué mes premiers points ; avant de courir il faut savoir marcher, et je sais que j’ai la vitesse donc les résultats vont suivre. »

It feels really good to have a brand like Yamaha behind me. I am happy about that. I feel so good in the environment, I have the right people around me.

We have the same spirit and the same goals, and we believe that together we can continue working towards the MXGP World Title.”

PROMOTOCROSS – RED BUD 2021 RESULTS https://promotocross.com/2021/07/03/twisted-tea-redbud-national-results

Osterhagen and Zonta dominate the EMX categories in Maggiora!

MAGGIORA (Italy) 3 July 2021 – The first day of racing here in Maggiora has concluded with the opening round of the EMX Open, as well as round two of the EMX125 Presented by FMF Racing championship.

Haakon Osterhagen of Fantic Factory Racing Team Maddii continued his winning streak to secure his first 1-1 in the EMX championship, meanwhile Filippo Zonta celebrated a victory on home soil in the same fashion, winning both races.

In the EMX125 Presented by FMF Racingcategory it was Fantic Factory Racing Team Maddii’s Haakon Osterhagen who continued his winning streak, adding two more race wins to his scorecard as he dominated the class once again. Joining him on the podium was Italian Valerio Lata of MRT Racing Team KTM and Kay Karssemakers of Husqvarna SKS Racing.

In the opening race it was ASA United GasGas rider Bobby Bruce who jumped into an early, though his time in first place was cut short as he made a mistake and fell down to last. Scott Smulders of No Fear/Jumbo BT Racing was the race leader for a lap, though by lap 3 Osterhagen was back in the driving seat as he led the way.

Smulders then lost out to Sacha Coenen of 9MM Energy Drink BUD Racing and Lata, with the pair going through into second and third, and then it was game on as Coenen and Lata were part of an intense battle for second place. The fight carried on for four laps, with Lata keeping Coenen extremely close, before making a pass stick on lap 9.

Towards the latter stages of the race Osterhagen had extended his lead to 10.332 seconds, as Lata and Coenen remained 2nd and 3rd, until Coenen crashed out with just 3 laps to go. Osterhagen was the race winner, with Lata second and Karssemakers third after making his way through the field from 7th place.

In the second race, it was Lata who grabbed the holeshot, followed by Osterhagen, Sacha Coenen and Bruce. Osterhagen was looking impatient as he worked hard to find a way past Lata, which he did very quickly as he led the race from lap 2.

Coenen was next to go through on Lata, with the young Belgian pushing hard to keep Osterhagen in his sights, though much like in race 1, the Kawasaki rider crashed once more on lap 7, though was able to recover and finish the race in P8.

The remainder of the second race saw Osterhagen lead Lata, Bruce, Andrea Rossi and Karssemakers who worked his way up to 5th.

Osterhagen made it a perfect day to go 1-1, while Lata placed P2 and Bruce was able to have a good race to take a solid P3.

In terms of the podium, it was Osterhagen who took to the top step of the podium, with Lata finishing second and Karssemakers getting shot at the podium in third. Fantic’s Osterhagen continues to lead the championship with 95 points, while Lata and Karssemakers move to second and third in the standings.

Haakon Osterhagen: “Yes it’s been super racing. I feel really satisfied about my riding and also about the bike, I’m super happy to get the 1-1 and make it happen. In the future this is our goal, and we’ll always work to get those results”.

Valerio Lata: “Yes it was a good day and nice to finish on the podium. I really enjoyed riding here because the track was also good. Thank you to my team and those who support me”

Kay Karssemakers: “First of all I’m happy about the result, the first race was good for me but in the second I had a small crash, and I wasn’t able to reach the results I wanted because I had to fight for 5th place. Finally, I’m super happy because is my first podium and I want to thank my team for the great support the gave me this weekend”.

In the EMX Open class it was Filippo Zontawho started the championship with a perfect score of 1-1 to take the round victory on home soil. Joining him on the podium was Frenchman Nicolas Dercourt of Honda SR Motoblouz who placed second with Davide De Bortoli third overall.

In race one, it was Dercourt who grabbed an early lead and was followed by De Bortoli, Zonta and Adrien Escoffier of Honda SR Motoblouz. De Bortoli was keen to get the win and pushed Dercourt from early on in the race, as less than a second separated the two.

De Bortoli moved into the lead on lap 3, before making a mistake on lap 5, which pushed him down to 7th. With Dercourt back in the driving seat, Zonta was the next rider to catch up to the race leader as he put on a charge.

By lap 7, Zonta was the new race leader, while Micha-Boy De Waal of No\Fear Jumbo BT Racing Team and Escoffier had a big one, with Escoffier not finishing the race, whereas De Waal was able to push on and finish the race in 17thposition.

As Zonta and Dercourt pulled a safe gap to the rest of the field, a nice battle was forming between Alessandro D’Angelo and Simone Croci with the pair fighting hard for third. Eventually Croci was able to find a way through as he upped his pace and even set the fastest lap of the race.

In the end Zonta was the race winner, with Dercourt second and Croci third.

In race two it was Jeff Oxelmark of JWR Honda Racing who was the early race leader, with Escoffier and Matej Jaros just behind. Escoffier was quick to start applying the pressure and by the second lap was leading the race.

Race 1 winner, Zonta was further down the field in 6th, though by the third lap was already up in the top three.

Escoffier led until lap 5, as Dercourt took the lead away. Zonta was also not looking to waste any time as he squeezed past the number #137 of Escoffier, on the same lap. Then it was a three-rider race as Dercourt, Zonta and Escoffier kept things close.

By lap 8 Zonta was out in front once again, as De Bortoli closed in on Dercourt. The pair fought for a few more laps before the Italian was able to pass the Frenchman and even close back in on the race leader.

In the end it was Zonta with the race win, De Bortoli second and Dercourt third. The podium was quite similar with Zonta occupying the top step of the podium and taking the red plate, while Dercourt placed second and De Bortoli third.

Filippo Zonta: “It feels great to be there, the first race was perfect while in the second one I started really good as well but in the first corner I almost crashed. Anyway, I managed to stay on the bike and get the concentration back to the race, I managed to gain back the lead and win also this race. I’m super happy because last period has been really hard for me, I didn’t give up and I continued to work really hard day by day and after such a big effort everybody can see the results”

Nicolas Dercourt: “The first race I had a really good start while in the second I wasn’t able to start as I wanted, it took me a couple of laps to be back. At the end I’m quite happy about the result because I decided to come to the race only Wednesday”.

Davide De Bortoli: “Today it was a solid day for me, I’m super happy to be on the podium because this means that my speed is really good; now I hope to be better in the next races and step on the top of the podium”.

Francesco Mezzasalma: “I wish to welcome everybody to Maggiora on behalf of the FMI President Giovanni Copioli and the Federation. Today is an important day for our sport. I saw Cairoli moving his first steps in motocross in Sicily and, to present the Maglia Azzurra with him today made us very proud.

Roberto Rustichelli: “I’m very pleased to present this jersey today. Some details on the jersey, there is a new logo at the front, celebrating 110th Anniversary of the Italian Motorcycle Federation. We also added some more details in tribute of the victories in the 80’s and 90’s as these were days we didn’t want to forget. The jersey will be worn at the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations in Mantova, as well as the Junior Motocross World Championship in Greece and we have big expectations for both races and we hope that this will be a lucky shirt for both, professional riders and young talents”.

Antonio Cairoli: “I’m really happy to hopefully be part of Team Italy, my goal is to bring my country as high as possible every year. This year I hope we have a strong team and we will be racing on home soil, so for us it is a good possibility to win this trophy. We will try our best to at least be on the podium again.
