AMA Supercross Round 13 - Edward Jones Domes - St. Louis, MO

450 Main Event:

Another massive holeshot by Andrew Short followed by a massive crash at the end of the first laneway. Short when off the track and cartwheeled in a spectacular crash but managed to get to his feet, clearly shaken but seemingly injury free.

Fox MX rider Ryan Dungey avoided the wreckage and took off to a comfortable lead. Like so many races this season the KTM rider settled into a smooth pace and earned a commanding lead.

Eli Tomac was flying! After a less than perfect start Eli was one of the fastest riders on the track, quickly making passes on Seely and Anderson to land himself on the 2nd step of the podium with Anderson in 3rd.

250 Main Event:

Jeremy Martin got the start he’s been missing out on for the past few weeks but Musquin was all over him in the second turn, the lead changed a number of times in the first lap before Marvin made the pass stick and would edge away from Martin.

The battle was on down the pack with Jordan Smith working hard to get past the number 1 of Justin Bogle. Smith would tag his rear wheel and drop the bike in a turn only to have a bunch of other riders run over his bike creating a bottle neck of fallen riders.

Musquin had clear track and for the 4th time the KTM team took the win in both classes and the orange bikes seem to have the winning formula locked down in the Supercross for 2015 with only a few rounds left to run before the AMA heads outdoors!

Australian MX Nationals Rd1 – Horsham, Victoria

The much anticipated MX Nationals kicked off in Victoria over the weekend with the race team Semi trailers heading to Horsham and its hard packed surface.

Some team changes for riders in both classes and a lot of riders motivated to prove a point after switching camps but in the MX1 class the favourite was definitely Matt Moss on the Suzuki.

MX1 Overall:

Last year’s championship winner Matt Moss didn’t have the best run in to the season with a shoulder injury hindering his preparation and an early crash at Horsham rattled Mossy after hitting his head. He would ride the remainder of the day in pain and could only manage a 14th overall and has some serious catching up to do to get back in the points hunt.

The standout all day was Kirk Gibbs with a near perfect day winning both moto’s but just missing out on Super Pole to Ford dale who posted the fastest time.

Honourable mention to Kade Mosig who is looking fit and fast who ended up in second for the day on his CDR Yamaha. The season is just going to get more interesting as round 2 is hosted at Appin which is Mossy’s home turf but with his injury and the stacked field the series could go any way at this stage!

MX2 Overall:

The lites class is becoming a breeding ground for talented riders with a stacked field again this year lead by the Serco Yamaha duo of Rookie Jed Beaton and 2014 champion Luke Clout. Jay Wilson is showing some form already with a solid finish after being picked up by Josh Coppins Racing Yamaha team after his contract ended with Serco in 2014. On top of this there is Veteran Takeshi Katsuya who finished the day in 3rd and other hard chargers being Nathan Crawford and Caleb Ward. Ward struggled a little on the hard packed surface but is sure to shine on the sand of Coolum and anywhere there is heavy loam!

Special mention for Dee Wilson #10 who suffered a heavy crash in the MXD class. Although his condition is stable, Dee remains in an induced coma at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne. Stay strong Dee! Sending the Wilson family support and best wishes during this tough time!

FIM World Motocross Championship Round 3 - Neuquen - Patagonia, Argentina

MXGP Overall:

The MXGP headed to Argentina this week to the loamy Patagonian racetrack which weaved its way through a Neuquen forrest!

After Cairoli took a convincing win in the heat race over Thor MX rider Ryan Villopoto and Nagl, the first race would pan out a little differently with Desalle racing off to an early lead and Cairoli crashing trying to chase him down. Cairoli would remount and finish in 3rd and subsequently take a third in the second race in front of Villo who went 4-4.

Nagl who said he was struggling with finding smooth lines and feeling uncomfortable in the qualifier race ended up taking a 2nd and a 1st to win the overall in front of Desalle. From there most riders had similar finishes in both moto’s with an honourable mention to Todd Waters taking home a 9th for the day!


Nagl stoked with the win in Argentina!

MX2 Overall:

Jeffery Herlings continued his perfect season by taking a comfortable win in the Qualifying race but a not so prfect start in the first moto left him a little buried in the pack. Not waiting around for anyone Herlings put the hammer down to make some passes but came unstuck over one of the big rhythm sections and had a massive cartwheel of a crash, narrowly avoiding being run over by half the pack in the process.

Jeffrey got up holding his wrist and limping a little, he would retire from the first race but would come back to win the second moto. Herlings now sits in equal first in the championship with Dylan Ferrandis but after such a horror end to 2014 Herlings will be happy just to be uninjured!
