Preview of Czech Republic:
Italian KTM rider Tony Cairoli continues leading the MX1 Championship after winning in the sand in Lommel and has increased his advantage from second classified Belgian Clement Desalle up to 79 points. In MX2 Marvin Musquin is at the top of the points standings followed by the winner of the GP of Limburg Ken Roczen.
Italian David Philippaerts, who was third last year in Loket, has missed the podium in the last four Gran Prixs and arrives in the Czech Republic willing to improve his third place in the standings of the MX1 Championship. However, last year’s winner in Loket Clement Desalle and German Max Nagl, who was second in 2009 as well as in Lommel last weekend, will not leave things easy for the Italian.
Current MX2 leader Marvin Musquin will fight to obtain his first ever victory in Loket, track which has always brought misfortune to the French. For Gautier Paulin, who is 11th in the MX2 classification, coming back to Loket might help him to move up in the standings of the championship as he went out with the overall victory in the Czech track last year.
The UEM EMX 125 Motocross European Championship will join the MX1 and MX2 series and it can be a crucial weekend for the current French leader Jordi Tixier as he can be proclaimed the new European Champion one round before the ending of the Championship.
