2011 FIM Motocross

Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing MX1’s Antonio Cairoli obtained his fifth GP victory of the season at a track he defined as one of the best ones of the season – Matterley Basin, Great Britain, Round 13 of the 2011 FIM Motocross Championship.

In the first FIM Motocross MX1 race he had a good start but he made a mistake and had to push again from the 12th position to finally end third.

In the second heat he got the holeshot and dominated it from beginning to end. The Italian Cairoli is now 82 points ahead of Frossard, so his fifth FIM Motocross World Title is closer than ever.

CLS Monster Energy Kawasaki Pro Circuit’s Pourcel did an incredible first FIM Motocross MX1 race, riding second most of it and overtaking Frossard by the end of the heat.

In the second Motocross MX1 race, Christophe Pourcel started really well but he was too short on a jump and he had a crash, which made him pull out from the race. However, as that race was red flagged, he was able to start again and he crossed the finish line third, which let him be on the second step of the FIM Motocross MX1 podium.

Monster Energy Yamaha’s Frossard won the Lovemytime holeshot award, as he took the holeshot in the first FIM Motocross MX1 race. The runner up of the series was leading the heat when he braked too much and stalled the bike at a corner and then his compatriot Pourcel overtook him. Frossard obtained two double second places, but he had to settle down with the third step of the podium just one point behind Cairoli and Pourcel.

Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing MX2’s Nagl has improved one position in the FIM Motocross MX1 championship and he is now fourth thanks to his fourth overall place. The German did not have great starts, but he did two incredible recoveries and he managed to finish fifth in both heats.

Completing the top five was PAR Honda’s Anderson, who was the best British rider in the MX1 class. Anderson, who has been picked up to represent Great Britain at the Monster Energy FIM MXoN, finished ninth and seventh in today’s races.

Barragán got involved in a tangle at the start of the first race and had to start pushing really hard from the 17th position, and when the Spaniard had recovered some places, he crashed again and crossed the finish line 14th. In the second race Barragan had and incredible start and he succeeded in keeping his initial fourth position, which gave him the final sixth overall place.

Boissiere struggled in both races and had to battle a lot in order to finish seventh overall ahead of Guarneri, who did not have great starts but managed to finish eighth and eleventh. Gonçalves could not be back on the podium this weekend and had had to settle down with a final ninth position. The Portuguese finished sixth in the first race, and although he started fourth in the second one, he crossed the finish line 14th.

Campano, on his first ride on the Monster Energy Yamaha, obtained a solid tenth position. The Spanish rider crashed at the start of the first race and had to fight from the dead last position to finish 15th. In the second heat Campano was riding third when the race was cancelled and in the re-rack he obtained a sixth position, the best one of this FIM Motocross season.

Home rider Simpson was 14th overall after obtaining a 16-10 result. The Scot was a bit disappointed with his result, mainly because he was riding second when the second FIM Motocross MX1 race was canceled.
