(Photos nabbed from Lorenza Resta's Twitter account)

Another strong field, with Cairoli, Searle, Nagl, De Dycker, Bobryshev, Van Horebeek, Fevbre and Phillippaerts all present. But no Strijbos or Paulin.

Tommy Searle currently joint first with Cairoli in the Elite class, and i'm hoping to see him wrap the Championship up (although he'll do well to beat Cairoli).

Possible stream for the race here.

Also unconfirmed reports of a man with suspiciously ginger hair seen throwing snowballs at the KTM team bus . . .

Really happy with Getteman on the MX2 bike. He had some bad luck past 2 years in MXGP but riding great now.

Haven't seen any results from Valence yet though, hope it hasn't been called off again. Been raining there for hours apparently.

Kouwenberg looked really good (yes dutch + sand = win) i wonder if he'll run an complete mx 250 gp season ? I think i saw him win in the Lommel EMX 250 gp last year he definitly has the speed on sand tracks.
MX 450 coming up now should be interesting!

Searle has a good chance to take the title in these conditions.

Typical Butron getting a killer start and giving it away : / and holy fuck what was going on with Nagl his bike being mangled up with another one ?! Great racing though lets see if Ken can keep it up vs AC.

Looks like JVH is catching AC tongue

edit : he was for a second anyway...

|

2/15/2015 5:58 AM

Thanks for the link. I never watch much of this Euro stuff but this is pretty cool.

Looks like a pretty tiring track. Dedeaker...so tall, he looks like he out for a trail ride but hes holding Cairolli off.

Read an interview with Ken. He said that on training Tommy and Tony have similar speed and that's he's off that pace for the moment. His hand is better but still has pins and needles feeling when he's riding... looking great so far tho

My fellow countrymen appear to be ready to go to war in Qatar. Going 1-2 so far in Valence & 1-3 in Italy.
KTM is looking really really good so far in 2015. (Dungey & Musquin winning Arlington SX last night) and now all KTM red bull riders in top 5 in Italy!

edit: SHIT DeDycker his bike blowing out at the pitlane : /
