2011 FIM Motocross: Agueda MX1 Results

MX1 Report

Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MX1’s Clement Desalle obtained his third overall victory this weekend in Agueda. The Belgian FIM Motocross rider struggled a little bit with the track, but he managed to finish on the top of the rostrum. Desalle is still leading the MX1 Championship with 12 points difference over Antonio Cairoli.

Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing MX1’s Cairoli was second overall this weekend, but he was really close to obtaining another GP Motocross victory. Cairoli got the fastest lap in the second heat and he was very close to overtake Desalle in both first
and second motos.

Honda World Motocross’ Bobryshev achieved his second podium of the season thanks to his two fourth positions in today’s races. The Russian took the Lovemytime holeshot award in the first heat and he also did a very good start in the second Motocross MX1, so it’s a matter of time for him to obtain his maiden GP victory.

His FIM Motocross MX1 teammate Rui Gonçalves finished seventh in the first heat, but he succeeded in being third in the second one and he ended with a solid overall fourth position in his home GP. Gonçalves took the holeshot in the second race and he is now very confident for the upcoming GP.

Monster Energy Motocross Yamaha’s Frossard did a very good first race and he finished third, but things did not start well for the French rider in the second one. Frossard had to start from the 18th position and although he did all his best, he crossed the finish line in the seventh position. Frossard is third in the FIM Motocross MX1 World Championship, 36 points behind Desalle.

De Dycker felt really good this weekend and he was able to finish sixth overall, ahead of Boog and Ramon. Leok obtained a solid ninth position and Barragán completed the top ten. The Spanish rider was involved in a tangle in the start of the first race and he finished 13th, and in the second race he crossed the finish line in eighth position.

Nagl was eighth in the first race, but he got a dnf in the second one, as he injured his right thumb and could not finish the race. The German was 14th overall.

Philippaerts crashed in both MX1 Motocross heats and got a dnf in the two motos. Fortunately, he is not injured and he will be ready for the Spanish GP next week.
