FIM Motocross Mallory Park Results

Tuesday, June 2, 2009
A great weekend of motorcycle racing in Mallory Park, starting with the SuperMoto Grand Prix, ended today with David Philippaerts winning the MX1 Grand Prix and Marvin Musquin the MX2.

Both started from pole which they took through yesterday’s qualifying heat wins. Nagl and Desalle completed the MX1 podium while Championship leader Cairoli ended eighth overall after yesterday’s crash. Frossard and Paulin completed the podium behind red plate holder Musquin. Series leader Iven dominated round three of the FIM Veterans’ World Cup ahead of Nilsson and LherIteau as the Belgian remains on top of the standings.

Coming back to victory after his latest appearance on the top of the podium at Loket 2008, Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross’ Philippaerts stormed from fifth to second in the Championship as he picked up 47 precious points while Championship leader Cairoli and third placed Barragan struggled.

Yamaha Red Bull De Carli’s Cairoli suffered after Saturday’s crash and soldiered on to finish both heats and take eighth overall, retaining the red plate eventually. Barragan was handed third by Nagl –who crashed- in heat one but a crash in moto two ruled the KTM Silver Action Spaniard out with a broken clutch.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Nagl took second on his first season podium as the German looked the strongest on the track today. Leading most of heat one, he fought back after Philippaerts snatched the lead but crashed and ended fourth. In heat two he took his revenge dominating ahead of the defending Champion.

Courtesy of a second and a third place finishes LS Motors Honda’s Desalle rounded up the podium but expressed his disappointment for a fall in the early stages of heat two.

Yamaha fellow riders Coppins and Leok rounded off the top five ahead of a solid Pichon and injured De Dycker.

Home hero Billy Mackenzie struggled with an injured thumb to end 13th overall.

MX1 Mallory Park Rider Quotes 
David Philippaerts – Yamaha – 1st
"For me this is a great day after some difficult GPs. It feels like a long time, too long, since I last won at Loket last year. I almost forgot the feeling! The track was softer here last year and it was definitely easier on Saturday than it was today. I had some good starts but this has happened quite often this season and I owe a big thanks to the team for this; for sure to start at the front makes the job easier."

Max Nagl – KTM – 2nd
"I pushed very hard in the first heat and I put a lot of pressure on myself. It was quite difficult to catch up after the crash because it's hard to overtake on this track. But after winning the second race I realise I could have easily won both of them. I have lacked a little confidence until now but Stefan Everts (factory team manager) has done a great job with me and I understand the problem is in my head. Hopefully I can keep going the same way as today."

Clement Desalle – Honda – 3rd
“I am a bit disappointed to lose second position by just one point but this podium is another good result for my championship standing. I made a mistake in the second moto and this was a shame because I lost contact with David and second position. My starts were good and this is a positive part of the day.”

Josh Coppins – Yamaha - 4th
"Not too bad today and I felt better than the last few weeks; there was an improvement here and hopefully I will be able to get back on the box in France. The first moto was pretty eventful because a rock hit my left collarbone and that was pretty sore and I also broke some spokes on my front wheel when I clashed with Desalle. The wheel was a bit wobbly and I got some arm-pump so the front group got away. There were some good points about today."

Tanel Leok – Yamaha - 5th
"I had a tough position in the start gate and although I got a good jump for the first moto I ended up being pushed quite wide. It was really difficult to come from 15th to 8th. I was feeling good and my riding was going well but it was hard to pass. I had a better start in the second race but made some mistakes half way through the moto. The end was OK. Overall I had a bit of bad luck on Saturday and it did not help me today."

Mickael Pichon – Honda – 6th
“Everything is better than I expected; the speed was OK and my physical condition also because I could see that the second moto was alright. For sure I was tired but I was riding smooth and not pushing too hard. When the guys like Coppins and a few others passed me they were not pulling away and I was having fun, more so than the first moto. It was nice to come back to the GPs and see many people who I had been working with for a lot of years; it was pretty cool to be here. The new Honda is really good but I think we can always do better and improve it; everything can be better in life! I am going to try and work on it, for me it is not so important but if it helps Kevin and whoever else then I will be glad.”

Ken De Dycker – Suzuki - 7th
"This was a very tough day for me. The track was very bumpy and with all the jumps and stones it was hard to hold onto the bars and also withstand the pain. I could not have an injection so I just had to get on with it. I also felt the effects of not being able to ride for three weeks. Now my hands are covered with blisters, but if I feel OK during this week, then I might try to get on the bike before France."

Antonio Cairoli - Yamaha - 8th
"I am very happy actually because after the crash yesterday I was thinking it was not possible to race, so 8th and 10th is good. Barragan and De Dycker did not do so well so that was also a positive thing. I was still sore after Spain and then on Saturday things got worse, so I hope to be OK for France. I did not like the track here. It was too difficult to overtake and in many places almost one line. It took a lot of time for me to close the gap to the guys in front. Still, there was another Yamaha win, thanks to David and that is good."

Gregory Aranda – Kawasaki – 9th
“I had good speed during the first heat, I posted the third fastest lap but after a start in eighteenth position it was difficult to do better than ninth. My second start was better, I was seventh but in the last ten minutes I couldn’t keep the rhythm and both Cairoli and Leok passed me. It was a good weekend overall, yesterday the track was perfect and I was the only rider to jump one section; but they changed it for the race. It’s a pity that the track had mainly one line due to the watering, it was so nice during the first practice session.”
