29.06.2008 Grand Prix of Germany in Teutschenthal (GER) - Qualifying

De Dycker back on pole with storming final lap

Day one of the German Grand Prix at Teutschenthal was a dry one and hosted some good qualifying action both in the MX1 and MX2 classes. Ken de Dycker took the eventual pole in MX1 while archrivals Tony Cairoli and Tyla Rattray won the qualifying heats to take the best two spots on the gate of tomorrow’s MX2 Grand Prix. In the Women’s Motocross World Championship qualifying session Livia Lancelot led from home riders Maria Franke and Larissa Papenmeier.


After taking the first ever Lovemytime Pole Position Award at round one at Valkenswaard, Teka Suzuki WMX1’s Ken de Dycker came back to pole at Teutschenthal with a solid final lap. After spending the beginning of the session in the pit-lane box, the Belgian progressively moved up the time sheets to collect the eventual pole once the flag was waved.

Second on tomorrow’s gate will be Lovemytime Pole Position Award standings leader Sebastien Pourcel; the GPKR rider settled into pole with seven minutes to go but he eventually saw De Dycker move past by 0.029 seconds. After sitting on pole despite a cracked right shoulder blade, CAS Honda’s Billy Mackenzie took third ahead of Yamaha Monster Motocross’ Joshua Coppins and Honda fellow rider Julien Bill. Tanel Leok was sixth ahead of series leader David Philippaerts and Marc de Reuver, who saw the top of the time sheets for some moments in the session, like Hungarian Kornel Nemeth who clocked an eventual 12th time. Defending Champion Steve Ramon and local favourite Max Nagl rounded off the top ten.

Women’s Motocross World Championship

Series leader Katherine Prumm is out with a broken left collarbone and with third placed Ashley Fiolek also missing round four, the points standings might change dramatically after tomorrow’s two motos as Livia Lancelot will start from pole. Making up for the disappointment of losing the red plate at home in France, GPKR’s Livia Lancelot took today’s pole position to collect also her second Circuiti Gioielli Women Pole Position Award, the wonderful silver bracelet by Circuiti Gioielli featuring the MX1 logo in gold. Being currently second in the series, Lancelot aims at moving back up to first though she will face a strong German opposition tomorrow. Second quickest today was Kawasaki Elf Pfeil’s Maria Franke, who was on pole in the early stages but eventually saw Lancelot snatch the top spot. Suzuki Inotec’s Larissa Papenmeier leapfrogged German compatriot Steffi Laier of KTM Germany in the final stages, as the winner of the latest two rounds will start from fourth tomorrow. Swedish Elin Mann rounded off the top five ahead of Marianne Veenstra and Elien de Winter.
