MX1

Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross’ Josh Coppins took his last GP win in Teutschenthal 2008 and this was a great comeback for the Kiwi at Sevlievo. Coppins went 2-2 battling it out with De Dycker in heat one and Barragan in heat two where he led during some laps. Jonathan Barragan of KTM Silver Action took his personal revenge with the Sevlievo track where last year he crashed while on route to his maiden GP win. The Spaniard was strong in the final part of heat one, trying to pass Nagl several times at the last laps and eventually settling down for fourth. His last moto ended with victory as Barragan was second on the podium.

New Championship leader Ken de Dycker of Teka Suzuki WMX1 won the opening heat but a tough second moto saw him drop to the third step of the podium. The Belgian needs to defend his Championship lead already next weekend as he is just one point ahead of Coppins. Coppins’ team mate David Philippaerts brought the factory Yamaha home in fourth overall after a strong second heat. Philippaerts moved past Nagl with two laps to go and was then followed by Cairoli, with the duo taking third and fourth.

MX2

Since the MX2 class was established in 2004 Honda had never taken a GP win but the first career Grand Prix win of Marvin Musquin handed the manufacturer their first success in the class. The Frenchman of Team NGS dominated the qualifying and started from pole in today’s heats. He won the first one despite a crash and in the second heat a bad start and several mistakes forced him to settle in third. Championship leader Gautier Paulin of Team Bud Racing Kawasaki PSM rode two smart heats and took two second places that helped him maintain a four point lead over new runner up Musquin.

An all French podium was completed by Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2’s Xavier Boog who had never finished on the rostrum before. Finishing two times fourth Boog battled it out with Guarneri in the first heat. Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross Ricci’s Nicolas Aubin was fourth overall and missed the podium by just three points. His team mate Guarneri finished right behind him. Simpson struggled to find his rhythm and finished a bitter sixth overall ahead of Frossard. The latter was on route to take victory in the first heat but a technical problem stopped him. The second heat was a different story for the CLS rider as he went out and took his maiden victory.

After yesterday’s win in the opening heat Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Stephanie Laier was going for a another win but a strong performance by Lancelot left the German with a bitter second. In today’s second heat Kawasaki Racing’s Lancelot, the defending Women’s World Champion who won in Bulgaria also last year, moved past holeshotter Fiolek and pulled away with the lead securing a comfortable advantage over Laier.
