Superb Cairoli ends Turkish experience with GP win

The first ever Turkish GP kept up the level of excitement in this year’s FIM Motocross World Championship courtesy of an action packed event. New Championship leader Tony Cairoli took a clean sweep in the MX1 class after a great second heat battle with defending Champion Philippaerts. Zach Osborne won the MX2 class ahead of current Championship leader Paulin.

Starting from pole Antonio Cairoli of Yamaha Red Bull De Carli was the protagonist of Turkey’s first appearance of the FIM Motocross World Championship which he now leads. Cairoli took victory in heat one, dominating from the start to the flag, and repeated the performance in the final moto after a breathtaking duel with Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross’ David Philippaerts. The latter took his first season’s podium with third overall. In heat one the Italian ended fourth but he came close to winning the final heat where he set up a dogfight with Cairoli. The duo swapped places several times until Cairoli opened up a safe gap towards the end of the heat.
Philippaerts then had to defend from Teka Suzuki World MX1’s Ramon who tried to move past in heat two after witnessing the Cairoli-Philippaerts wrestle. Eventually Ramon was third, which combined with a solid second from heat one and resulted in a podium finish. Other Teka Suzuki World MX1 man Ken de Dycker was fourth in the overall classification just ahead of Belgian countryman Strijbos of Martin Honda MX. After twisting his knee in Faenza Strijbos showed good form today taking third in moto one, though a fall in the second moto saw him lose a provisional second place.

MX2:

Gautier Paulin of Bud Racing Kawasaki PSM left Turkey with the red plate but who snatched the overall win was American Zach Osborne. The Utag-Yamaha.com’s rider, who debuted in the FIM Motocross World Championship only last year at Lommel, eventually took his maiden GP win ahead of Paulin. Osborne was third in the first heat, where Paulin and SRS’ Vongsana battled it out for victory, but he gave his best in the final heat taking his second career moto win. Paulin aimed for another win in heat two but a bad start made it a tough moto for the Frenchman who had to recover until the seventh place.

Despite a difficult qualifying NGS’ Musquin kept up his podium streak with third overall. Musquin recovered to fifth in the first heat but a better start in the final moto gave him a chance of battling for first. After moving past Osborne, Musquin tried to pull away but he was eventually caught and overtaken by the American. A strong Frossard tried hard to snatch second from Musquin with several attacks towards the end of heat two but he was an eventual third. In the overall the CLS man was ninth due to a dnf in heat one. Vongsana clinched his and the SRS team’s best GP result with fourth overall. After the second place in heat one, Vongsana took a bad start and finished twelfth in moto two. 3C Racing Yamaha’s Monni was under the spotlight when he took the holeshot in heat two but he ended the weekend with a fifth overall.
