FIM Motocross Portugal Results

Monday, May 11, 2009
A fantastic Portuguese Grand Prix ended with Rui Goncalves’ home win, which was a great achievement for the Factory MX2 KTM rider and his second consecutive GP win as well.

Tony Cairoli came back to victory in MX1 where he dominated both motos and consolidated his Championship lead. Though a contact between Cairoli and defending Champion Philippaerts during a partially wet second moto saw the latter pull out with a broken left index-Philippaerts will be present next weekend at Bellpuig anyways.

Yamaha Red Bulls Tony Cairoli swept the MX1 weekend in Portugal.
Yamaha Red Bull's Tony Cairoli swept the MX1 weekend in Portugal, extending his lead over De Dycker to 25 points.
Tony Cairoli impressed in this fifth round of fifteen of the FIM Motocross World Championship as he took his second season’s win to become the only rider in the category to have won twice so far. Yamaha Red Bull De Carli’s Cairoli won both moto’s. In heat one he was handed the second spot by Philippaerts –who crashed- then moved past De Dycker to pull away with the lead. In heat two a bad start saw the Italian enter the top four later. In a close fight in between Desalle, Cairoli and Philippaerts the Italians tangled up with each other and Philippaerts pulled out with a broken left index finger.

Teka Suzuki WMX1’s De Dycker, who started from pole, settled for two second places as the overall result of second saw the Belgian move up to the runner up spot in the MX1 Championship standings. De Dycker led 16 laps throughout the moto’s then was passed by Cairoli.

Clement Desalle of LS Motors Honda rounded off the rostrum courtesy of two third places in the heats. The Belgian experienced the thrills of leading a GP moto for the first time ever in his career as he held the top spot for two laps.

Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross’ Coppins finished in fourth ahead of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Nagl.

An injured Barragan soldiered on throughout the weekend to take tenth overall. The Spaniard lost the runner up spot in the Championship and dropped down to third.

Goncalves dedicated this win to his many supporters attending Agueda.
Goncalves dedicated this win to his many supporters attending Agueda.
Rui Goncalves made the day of the Portuguese fans as the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider went on to take the overall victory at home in Agueda. This was the second consecutive win for Goncalves, who had recently won his maiden GP at Valkenswaard. Taking two strong starts, Goncalves was forced to settle into second in race one when Musquin stormed from the back of the group to an incredible win. Heat two was Goncalves’ revenge with Rui leaving runner up Frossard seven seconds behind.

CLS’ Frossard was second on his first season podium despite he started from pole. The French hard pack specialist struggled to find his rhythm in both races while in the second heat he lost vital time to pass a tough Guarneri – the duo set up a dogfight which lasted more than half race.

Musquin completed the podium despite a disastrous qualifying yesterday, when he had to retire after a crash. Following an incredible win in heat one, Musquin could consolidate the second place in the Championship courtesy of a sixth place finish.

Yamaha Monster Energy Ricci Motocross’ Davide Guarneri and Loic Larrieu completed the top five right ahead of Championship leader Paulin and debutant Roczen.

The latter impressed with a fourth place finish in heat two despite starting from 26th on the grid.

Rui Goncalves continues winning streak in MX2 in front of home crowd.

Women's Motocross World Championship

American Ashley Fiolek is now second in the standings with her CRF250R but returns to the US this week to prepare for her national campaign.
American Ashley Fiolek is now second in the standings with her CRF250R but returns to the US this week to prepare for her national campaign.
Despite losing the final moto to rival Laier, Lancelot consolidated her leadership in the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship by wrapping up the overall and building on her Championship lead at the end of the series’ maiden visit to Portugal.

Fiolek ended second on the podium ahead of Papenmeier, who took her first season rostrum. Laier’s weekend was hampered by a crash in heat one as she ended eighth overall. The German lost the second place in the Championship to Fiolek.

In today’s second moto it was Laier who led the whole moto while Lancelot struggled after a troubled start. Kawasaki Racing’s Lancelot worked her way up to second after passing holeshotter Fiolek but it was already too late to try and catch Laier.

LS Motors Honda’s Fiolek had no chance to fight back and settled in third as Lancelot did the same with Laier-the latter accumulated a safe gap while the defending Champion worked her way up through the pack.
Franke and Papenmeier swapped places in the second lap with the Kawasaki Elf Pfeil rider securing fourth ahead of Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2’s Papenmeier.

Lancelot topped the podium from Fiolek and Papenmeier as the French built on her Championship lead. Fiolek is now second ahead of Laier.
