08.05.2006 MX World Championship - Grand Prix of Germany in Teutschenthal (GER)

Stefan Everts won MX1 in Teutschenthal
First GP win for Christophe Pourcel in MX2

Frenchman Christophe Pourcel won in Teutschenthal the first Grand Prix of his young career with a double win in the MX2 class, while Stefan Everts got his 91th win. New Zealander Katherine Prumm won the first round of the FIM Women’s World Cup during a successful Grand Prix of Germany, followed by a huge crowd under perfect conditions in Teutschenthal for a sunny event (27°C).

Sick and second in Portugal two weeks ago, Christophe Pourcel is the first rider to get a double win this season in the MX2 class. The young kid from Chateauneuf les Martigues was the fastest on this track, and got twice the holeshot on this fast track. It was a hudge advantage for him as he was able to secure a strong leadership early in each race. Dutch Marc De Reuver collected two second places and a second position overall, followed by his team-mate Tyla Rattray. The World Championship leader had a difficult weekend; he started twice mid pack, stalled his engine in the first race and had a little crash in the second one when he tried to pass De Reuver. Luckily for him, Italian Alessio Chiodi broke his engine in the second race and offered to Tyla on the last step of the podium.

"I knew that the start would be more important than ever here, and twice I got the holeshot. We worked for this yesterday with my brother, and I did my best to get the holeshot over Chiodi as I know that it’s always difficult to pass him. I felt easy on my bike, found some good lines and pushed hard in the first circulations to make a gap with my rivals. It was a perfect weekend for me, but unfortunately my brother Sébastien had technical problems in both races," said the young Frenchman who will turn eighteen this summer.
Mackenzie finished fourth, followed by Antonio Cairoli who crashed heavily in the morning and banged his neck.

Stefan Everts collected also two holeshot in the MX1 class, and led both races. But it was not an easy GP for the Belgian star, who had to battle with Kevin Strijbos in the first race and Tanel Leok in the second one. He had to built this double win, as none of his young rivals give up during the first part of the race.
"I’m like a diesel, I need time to find my good rythm! I had to give the best I could in both races, I think that’s good to me that I still have strong competitors as I need to have pressure and then I can ride my best. Every week they are coming better and also stronger physically, they are trying to beat me and I have to keep on working hard during the week," said the leader of the series.

Second and third Strijbos and Leok got a podium position, followed by De Dycker and Ramon who crashed at the first start. British Stephen Sword crashed during the warm up; he broke his right ankle and had surgery in the afternoon.
After a first edition last year in Sweden, the Women’s World Cup started this weekend in Germany. New Zealander Katherine Prumm (Kawasaki) and French Livia Lancelot (Yamaha) shared the first positions and will arrived in Uddevalla (Sweden) for the second and last round of the series equal in the standings.

Only thirty of the firty ladies involved qualified for the Grand Prix on Saturday, and on Sunday the first race of the women was the most exciting of the weekend as Lancelot and Prumm battled during most of the race and started the last lap side by side on the final jump!
German Stephanie Laier (KTM) got the holeshot in the first heat, but Lancelot passed her promptly to lead the entire race. In fourth position at the start Prumm came back second at mid race, and then reduced the gap with Lancelot. They did the last four laps together, and Lancelot just kept an advantage of 1.7 second over her rival! Laier grabbed another holeshot in the next race, but Prumm was right behind and took the lead in the second circulation. Lancelot also passed Laier in the fourth lap to finish second. These three ladies were far from the rest of the pack, and will battle for the World Cup beginning of July in Sweden.
Katherine Prumm: "In the first race I struggled a little bit, I was only sixth at the start. The track was quite difficult to pass but I kept on working hard, I was a little bit nervous and had pumped arms. When I came second I tried several times to pass Lancelot for the win, but at the end it was not easy with the lappers. My second start was awesome, thanks to my powerfull Molson Kawasaki! I’m of course happy to lead the Cup, I’ve been working so hard since two or three years to come at this level. The GP riders were really friendly with us, especially Tyla Rattray, Gareth Swanepoel and Josh Coppins. I was a few days in his house and was able to practice in Belgium, now I will fly to the US for two races at Glenn Helen and Hangton, and will be back for Sweden."
