Pretty boring track imo. It's just trail riding and hoping the guy ahead of you makes a mistake or runs it a bit too wide in a corner.

Morgan Lesiardo will replace Nathan Crawford at Honda 114 Motorsports, who got a knee injury at Mantova. That's the third team this season for Lesiardo.

A brand new (artifical) track, about 20km from Madrid. A single-run GP, last time this was the case was at Valkenswaard. Additional classes: EMX125 and EMX250

It's a bit sad that the GP is held at a man-made track when Spain has plenty of great ... more »

Seriously though, sad that Valkenswaard disappears, but it's the same team that will organise at Arnhem, so they know what they're dealing with. They leave the door open for Valkenswaard ... more »

Yeah, of course. I'm not blaming Vialle for shutting the door, he has every right to do so and I'd done the same if I was in his place. But I understand Geerts aswell. You're in the momentum, adrenalin sky high, and you don't want to lose time and give

Some stats from Mantova: - After the triple header of Latvia seemed as the "penalties for too much dB's"-GP's, Mantova turns out to be the "penalties for ignoring yellow flags"-GP's. No less than 10 riders were docked two positions in the second MX2 ... more »

Big shout out to Bobryshev, scoring 7 points in the second race. Didn't think that was possible after his crash on Sunday. This weekend he will race the Maxxis ACU championship, together with his MX2-teammate Josh Gilbert.

Pretty cocky from Vialle to say "Geerts made a mistake" when he actually slammed the door on him (which is his right to do btw, I'm not blaming him). Good race from Geerts, that's the aggression I want to see of him, just a bit too eager to pass, he ... more »
