2011 FIM Motocross

Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing MX1’s Antonio Cairoli obtained his fifth FIM World Title this weekend, as well as his 43 Grand Prix victory, at Gaildorf, Germany.

The Italian KTM rider admitted that the track was much better Sunday than Saturday and the fact of having more lines helped him to obtain the overall win, as in both heats the Italian did not start at the front. It has been a very tough season for the Italian, so this third MX1 Motocross Title in a row has been a reward for all the hard work done throughout all the 2011.

The second step of the podium was for Honda World Motocross’ Bobryshev, who finished first and eighth in today’s races. Bobryshev had to race with some special protections on his neck in order to protect his back and he also needed some stiches on his head because he hit his head against one of his camper’s posts.

However, the Russian FIM Motocross MX1 rider dominated the first race without any problem, and although he did a mistake in the second one and got some green fence stuck on his bike, he managed to finish the race seventh.

Kawasaki Racing Team’s Boog obtained his first podium of the FIM Motocross MX1 season this weekend thanks to his 2-6 result. Lately the French rider has had great starts but he could not keep the race rhythm, but today he took the holeshot in the first race and did also an excellent start in the second one and managed to ride with the front riders until the end.

The fourth MX1 Motocross position was for Honda World Motocross’ Gonçalves, who had really good starts in both races and starred in several tough battles with Nagl, Cairoli and Boog. In the second race, he dropped three positions in one lap when he was riding fourth, but he quickly recuperated the rhythm and finished fourth.

Rockstar Energy Suzuki World Motocross MX1’s Strijbos obtained another top five result with the factory bike. In the first race he rode among the top five positions until the end, but in the second one he had to push really hard from his initial tenth position to finish fifth again.

Boissiere achieved the best result of the FIM MX1 Motocross season finishing sixth overall, ahead of Nagl and Pourcel. The French finished tenth in the first race, but he did an incredible second heat and crossed the finish line third after starting from the ninth position.

Nagl did a really good first race and crossed the finish line fifth after a not so good start, but in the second heat he crashed with Guarneri in a corner and could only finish tenth and obtained the overall seventh position at Gaildorf FIM Motocross MX1.

Pourcel, winner of yesterday’s qualifying race, dominated completely the second race from beginning to end, but he had a DNF in the first one due to an early MX1 crash. Pourcel finished eighth overall.

Aranda obtained a solid ninth MX1 position and Simpson completed the top ten. Home rider Schiffer succeeded in finishing eleventh and race per race he is feeling better, and he is now looking forward to have a good race in Fermo to be full motivated for the MXoN.

Frossard crashed in the first race and had to be taken to the hospital, but luckily the French rider is not suffering any serious injury and he is already thinking about next weekend’s race in Fermo.
