Barragan and Cairoli end winless streak in Sweden

The Grand Prix of Sweden was held on a wet Sunday, with the weather being drizzly all day long. Jonathan Barragan took victory number two of his career from Steve Ramon and series leader David Philippaerts. In the MX2 class Tony Cairoli came back to victory, topping the podium from KTM fellow riders Tyla Rattray and Shaun Simpson.

MX1

Winning heat one and settling for second in heat two, AXO KTM Silver Action’s Jonathan Barragan wrapped up the overall for the second time this year after Mallory, which marked his first career win. Defending MX1 Champion Steve Ramon of Teka Suzuki WMX1 was second on the podium to mark his comeback to the rostrum after his last appearance at Bellpuig, the venue of his maiden MX1 win this year. Series leader David Philippaerts of Yamaha Monster Motocross took third overall from moto two winner Max Nagl and Billy Mackenzie.

MX1 1st Race:

Boniface took the holeshot and led the first part of heat one before dropping down to an eventual sixth. After a solid start, Barragan attacked and passed the Frenchman to secure the victory from a strong De Reuver. Ramon rounded off the top three with Philippaerts pushing him in the final laps, when both moved past Boniface. Desalle rounded off the top five while Mackenzie dropped down to seventh after riding the opening laps in second. Pourcel and Coppins ended 11th and 13th respectively after crashing in the opening lap.

Nagl dominated the final heat from the start to the flag, leaving a wise Barragan behind in second which was enough for the Spaniard to secure the overall win. Ramon took another third place ahead of Philippaerts with Coppins rounding off the top five courtesy of a last lap move on Mackenzie, sixth. De Reuver crashed twice and dnf’d while Pourcel remained blocked on the start gate due to a machine’s problem.

MX2

Yamaha Red Bull De Carli’s Antonio Cairoli took the overall win after a two GP absence from the top step of the podium. The Sicilian was first from KTM fellow riders Tyla Rattray (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) and Shaun Simpson (KTM UK). Rattray won heat one but settled for the points in moto two and kept the red plate. Simpson was third and second to finish third ahead of Tommy Searle and Steven Frossard, who rounded off the top five. After some laps of the first moto, Pascal Leuret retired as he felt unbearable pain to his recently operated right shoulder and elbow.

MX2 1st Race:

Simpson led the group for the first half of the heat then Rattray moved past to win the moto from Cairoli; the latter worked his way up after a difficult start, moving past Simpson despite the Brit fought tooth and nail for the runner up position. Simpson was third ahead of Frossard and Aubin. Searle was sixth, as he crashed after a close overtaking move Cairoli made on him.

MX2 2nd Race:

Simpson was again the quickest to jump out of the gate and Rattray followed from second with Searle completing a KTM top three after moving past Cairoli. The latter waited until mid race distance then made his moves on Searle and Rattray. Cairoli chased Simpson for first and eventually passed to take the win. Simpson defended the runner up spot from Rattray, who ended third from Searle and Tarroux.
