Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing MX1’s Anthony Cairoli succeeded in winning the MX1 Motocross class at the Grand Prix of Limburg, but it was not an easy weekend for the Italian during Round 12 of the FIM Motocross GP in Lommel.

In the first race he obtained the Lovemytime holeshot award, but he had to fight really hard with Desalle to keep the lead. The Italian even suffered a small crash during the race and injured a little bit his knee, but it did not stop him to win the second moto.

Rockstar Energy Suzuki World Motocross MX1’s Desalle got an eventual second overall position in Lommel. The home rider starred in a thrilling battle with Cairolli during the first race, but he had to settle down with the second position.

In the second FIM Motocross MX1 heat, Desalle rode fifth most of the race and in the last lap he was virtually fourth in the GP. However, Gonçalves got a DNF while he was fourth and the Belgian went up one position, which made him go up on the second step of the podium.

Third overall was Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing FIM Motocross MX1’s Nagl after finishing fifth in the first race and second in the following one. Nagl admitted that he has had an injury at his back since Valkenswaard and that he has been struggling when racing on hard pack. This weekend the sand made things easier for the German, but Nagl may have to undergo surgery in the near future.

Honda World Motocross’ Bobryshev was involved in a tangle at the beginning of the first race and had to push really hard from the last position to be able to cross the finish line sixth. Bobryshev did a superb start in the second moto and he took the lead after four laps, but the Russian made a mistake and Cairoli catch him up and passed him straight away. In the last laps Bobryshev was overtaken by Nagl, so he finished fourth overall.

Monster Energy FIM Motocross Yamaha’s Frossard did a very good first race and he even exchanged the lead with Desalle when there were 20 minutes to go. During the last laps Frossard was down in the third position, but when he was about to cross the finish line, Gonçalves overtook him in the last metres of the race. In the second heat, Frossard did not have a good start and ended sixth, which gave him the final fifth position.

Leok was eighth in the first FIM Motocross MX1 race, but in the second one he did a great recovery from an initial ninth position and managed to cross the finish line fifth and obtained the overall sixth place.

Gonçalves did one of the best races of the FIM Motocross MX1 season, but he was touched by bad luck by the end of the second race. The Portuguese finished third in the first heat and he got the virtual overall position during the last lap of the second race when he was fourth, but his new engine broke having just two turnings to go. Gonçalves finished seventh of the GP.

Philippaerts struggled a lot in the sand and finished eighth, followed by Simpson and De Dycker.
