Cairoli wins American GP from Alessi and Desalle

Antonio Cairoli in the MX1 class and Marvin Musquin in the MX2 took victory at this successful USA Grand Prix comeback to Glen Helen Raceway, hosting the hottest Grand Prix of the year so far with high temperatures all weekend.
 


MX1

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX1’s Cairoli took an incredible victory of this USA Grand Prix by winning moto one and taking third in moto two. What the fans will remember is surely the Italian’s performance in heat one, when he was leading until he broke the gear lever of his KTM 350 SX-F. Alessi took the chance to move past and get the lead but a gusty Cairoli made it back to first and took victory despite his bike being stuck in third gear!



Jägermeister Factory KTM’s Alessi, also onboard the KTM 350, was second overall. After taking second in moto one, the American battled it out with Cairoli for third but eventually dropped down to fourth after the two passed each other several times.



Desalle of Rockstar Teka Suzuki World MX1 made his comeback to the podium courtesy of third overall. The Belgian was fifth in moto one but made up for that in moto two where he took a solid second place behind winner Townley – in moto one the New Zealander crashed twice and pulled out.



Kawasaki Racing’s Boog was fourth overall as he put together a sixth and a fifth place finish in the moto’s. Other Rockstar Teka Suzuki World MX1 rider Ramon completed the top five. 

After a third place in moto one, Nagl crashed in moto two and did not score points. The runner up in the Championship has now a gap of 41 points from leader Cairoli. 




MX1 Championship top ten: 1. Antonio Cairoli (ITA, KTM), 259 points; 2. Maximilian Nagl (GER, KTM), 218 p.; 3. Clement Desalle (BEL, Suzuki), 196 p.; 4. David Philippaerts (ITA, Yamaha), 184 p.; 5. Ken de Dycker (BEL, Yamaha), 174 p




MX2

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX2’s Musquin again seemed unbeatable taking two moto wins and the overall.

Taking his first podium of the season was home rider Osborne of Bike It Cosworth Yamaha UK. The American could not go catch Musquin for first as he had to get rid of Simpson in both heats. The duo fought tooth and nail in heat one, with Osborne taking fourth eventually, and in heat two when Osborne took his best heat result of the season courtesy of a second place.



Kawasaki CLS’ Frossard made it to third on the podium despite a tough qualifying heat yesterday, when he crashed and injured his right thumb. The French raced a superb heat one, taking an eventual second after Kullas broke the bike and pulled out. In moto two he was fourth. Frossard is now third in the Championship which is a confidence booster ahead of his home GP next weekend.



Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2’s Roczen was a bitter fourth overall. The German recovered to third in heat one after he was involved in a tangle but went down in the final moto due to another tangle – eventually he was fifth. 



MX2 Championship top ten: 1. Marvin Musquin (FRA, KTM), 268 points; 2. Ken Roczen (GER, Suzuki), 228 p.; 3. Steven Frossard (FRA, Kawasaki), 205 p.; 4. Jeffrey Herlings (NED, KTM), 197 p.; 5. Shaun Simpson (GBR, KTM), 170 p

    Alessi is too arrogant for his own good.Everets even said he doesn't listen to his team. He thinks his way is the ONLY way. Thats why Decoster canned him.
