Nagl Fans - 2009 FIM Motocross  Sweden
Fans of No. 5 Max Nagl were out in force at the Sweden GP to watch the German rider go 1-2 for the overall win.

As it was in qualifying, again Nagl and Goncalves made it a KTM one two in Sweden with the factory KTM duo winning the MX1 ad MX2 Grand Prix respectively.

Cairoli and De Dycker completed the MX1 podium with the Italian remaining on top of the series’ points standings.

In the MX2 class Roczen came back to the podium courtesy of his first ever heat win, while Paulin rounded off the rostrum.

Musquin, who did not race due to issues related to his recent switch of manufacturer, remained first in the Championship.


Poleman Nagl of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing wrapped up his second overall win of the season today in Sweden as he went on to win the opening moto after a dominant performance then controlled heat two finishing second to winner Cairoli.

Max Nagl  MX1  Moto 1  - 2009 FIM Motocross  Sweden
Poleman Nagl left the competition in his roost with a dominate Moto 1 ride, finishing 18s ahead of De Dycker. 

The duo pulled away after the start of the final moto but Yamaha Red Bull De Carli’s Cairoli rode stronger to take his revenge for a troubled first moto. Cairoli was closed at the start and had to recover from the back of the pack, finishing an eventual fourth.

Riding consistent in both moto’s paid Teka Suzuki World MX1’s De Dycker his fifth podium of the season. The Belgian took second in heat one despite being far away from Nagl, while he settled for fourth in heat two after several unsuccessful attempts of moving past Philippaerts.

Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross’ Philippaerts took fourth overall courtesy of a strong second moto, which he ended in third place.

LS Motors Honda’s Desalle made up for a disastrous qualifying race yesterday –he finished 21st after he crashed into Aigar Leok, who had previously crashed- and took fifth overall. The Belgian was unable to match his top three finish of moto one in the final heat, where he cruised in fifth. Nevertheless Desalle has now moved up to fourth in the Championship.

A heavy crash in heat one caused a severe thoracic trauma to wild card rider Mats Akerblom. The Swedish was immediately taken to the Uddevalla hospital where he is still kept under control.

Taking his fourth Grand Prix win of the season Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Goncalves is now the rider with the most wins in his account though the Portuguese could not improve on his third place in the Championship this weekend.

Rui Goncalves  MX2  Moto 2  - 2009 FIM Motocross  Sweden
Rui Goncalves rode to his second consecutive MX2 overall. 

Goncalves took two good starts but in the first heat he lost a dogfight with Roczen and handed the win to the German youngster. Goncalves conquered the overall by winning the final moto.

Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2’s Roczen was second on the podium despite this being his first ever visit to the Swedish track. The 15 year old, who had already won a GP this year at Teutschenthal, managed to win his first career moto in heat one, though a difficult start at moto two saw him recover to an eventual seventh place.

Paulin completed the podium for the second consecutive time after Latvia. The Kawasaki Bud Racing PSM man was aiming higher but a crash in heat one ruined a possible top three finish, as it happened when Paulin was recovering from the bottom of the top five. Finishing seventh in heat one, the Frenchman stormed to second in the final moto but he lost vital time to move past Bobryshev and could not give chase to Goncalves.

Yamaha Monster Energy Ricci Motocross’ Guarneri, who hurt his shoulder in a crash yesterday, struggled through the moto’s but got an eventual fourth overall ahead of Roelants.

Monni was a strong sixth ahead of Karro and Nicholls. Bobryshev and Schiffer completed the top ten overall.

After a strong third place in moto one, Frossard pulled out of heat two due to severe pain to his right ankle, which he injured recently.

Despite not racing due to issues linked to his manufacturer switch from Honda to KTM, Musquin remained at the lead of the Championship.

Ken Roczen  MX2  Moto 1  - 2009 FIM Motocross  Sweden

Collecting other two heat wins in Sweden, where she won the first edition of the Women’s World Cup back in 2005, Laier took a step closer to her first World Championship Title. Franke and Kane completed the podium.

Stephanie Laier  WMX  Moto 1  - 2009 FIM Motocross  Sweden
KTM’s Stephanie Laier followed her sweep of WMX in Germany with another unstoppable performance in Sweden, extending her lead over Larissa Papenmeier.

Showing her speed already in the opening moto, Laier carried on winning and wrapped up today’s overall. Laier built on her Championship lead while defending Champion Lancelot only attended Uddevalla as a spectator, as she is due to undergo surgery to her right shoulder on Tuesday and then rest for four months.

Courtesy of today’s performance Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Laier celebrated her fourth consecutive heat win and second consecutive overall triumph as the German leads the Championship with just one round remaining.

Second on the podium was Kawasaki Elf Pfeil’s Franke, who took two second places in the heats. MVR-D Suzuki’s Kane completed the podium at her first rostrum appearance in the Women’s World Championship. Kane, who was third yesterday, brought the bike home in third again today.

Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2’s Papenmeier ended her podium row as she finished a bitter fourth overall. The German crashed in both heats but recovered well to salvage a top five finish. Papenmeier remains second to Laier in the Championship but third placed Franke is just one point away now.

Home star Mann rounded off the top five overall.
