No time to back off. I hope they made some changes to the track, as last season this was one of the most boring races. Close and intense, but hardly any passes. It seems they race in the opposite direction this year, so maybe that helps.

Some interesting wildcards in MX2 with Guillem Farres, Tom Guyon and Oriol Oliver.

Additional classes are EMX125 and WMX.

I agree it's got nothing going for it that track. I can't see reversing it will make much difference. Just the same shit in a different direction.

Seems I was wrong, still in the same direction, they just altered the corner after the finishline a bit.

Or Calatayud in Zaragoza or back to Talavera, this track with almost no elevation is boring but with the enviroment rules seems imposible to build a natural track in a hill like back in the day.

I live in South of Spain(Murcia) and almost every local track where i ride hasnt got documentation.

Any news on Bobby Bruce? He obviously went down last weekend while pushing hard.

They haven't been pinning links to the top of the page for the last couple GPs .

Something 'different' to look at if any are curious , or, have a couple of screens to watch both the EMX and WMX races, and, Sidecarcross - they just had Qualifying A and B sessions at Oss, on YouTube:

The Ladies "racing for Sheep Stations".

Fontanesi came off second best...........

Then a few laps later, Duncan gets into a vicious tank slapper reaching for a tear off, and prangs

Very cool 125 race

10/16/2021 5:52 AM

That was wild. You can't beat a good 125 race!

125's are brilliant, the racing is always good.

Its a shame it will be an over watered Rut-O-Cross by the looks of the EMX 125 first race.

But a great crowd for sure.

I sometimes think that if the tracks soil is basically going to be, naturally hard pack , instead of tilling it deep and over watering it, so it then develops rock hard, deep ruts, and the tilled bits also dries to 'chunks' (re - Duncans type of prang) - just let it be Hardpack.

This whole 'till the crap out of things', shouldn't be applied to all soils / tracks. Throttle control on Hardpack, is quite a skill, that shouldn't die out.

Not sure but i looks like he was holding his hand.
Malin said that too but no tv images.
Track announcer said that he overshoot a jump but no oficial words.

The 2 Coenen brothers both look like stars of future, but Sacha seems to push beyond his limit a lot. Exciting to watch though.

Yeah, my thoughts initially.
Then i checked how old they are, they just turned 15 years old....So promising for sure!
What i like is how they are able to pick it up late in the motos.

It would also be interesting to see if their results would differ if they were on full KTM bikes rather than the KTM/KX hybrid, don't get me wrong they look good out there, but is the steel frame flex a more forgiving ride.
