FIM Motocross Germany Results

Sunday, June 21, 2009
A healthy German crowd enjoyed a superb home Grand Prix with 15 year old Ken Roczen becoming the youngest GP winner ever at his home event.

Cairoli took the MX1 overall win ahead of local hero Nagl, who had won the first heat after a dogfight with the Championship leader. De Dycker was third.

In MX2 the podium was completed by Frossard and series leader Musquin.


The MX1 Grand Prix was an affair in between Cairoli and Nagl, the same duo that dominated yesterday’s qualifying heat where Cairoli took pole courtesy of a last lap move on Nagl.

Max Nagl and Tony Cairoli  MX1  - FIM Motocross  Germany
KTM's Max Nagl and Yamaha's Tony Cairoli ran toe-to-toe in Moto 1 at the Teutschenthal Track in Germany.
Yamaha Red Bull De Carli’s Cairoli tried again a similar move in moto one after he closed the gap from Nagl. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s German took the holeshot and tried to pull away with the lead until he was forced to bang bars with Cairoli to defend the first spot. Eventually Nagl won followed by Cairoli.

Heat two started again with Nagl’s holeshot but Cairoli made his move on the German a lot earlier to wrap up the overall and become the Italian with the highest number of GP  wins to his credit courtesy of 28 overall wins-one more than Alessio Chiodi.

Nagl remained second until four laps to go when Teka Suzuki WMX1’s De Dycker moved past for second. Finishing in third, Nagl took second overall for his third consecutive podium appearance and could close in on Philippaerts as the two are respectively second and third in the Championship at just four points from each other- Cairoli remains first.
Ken de Dycker  MX1  - FIM Motocross  Germany
Suzuki's Ken de Dycker rebounded in Moto 2 to take second.

De Dycker, who struggled in the first heat, completed the podium in third as he snatched the position from Philippaerts courtesy of the last heat’s move on Nagl. The Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross man ended fourth ahead of team mate Coppins, with the latter hitting Philippaerts in heat two and crashing right after.

After three GP’s, Pichon ended his Martin Honda experience with eighth overall while Honda fellow rider Billy Mackenzie headed back to Great Britain for a hand operation as an injury has been affecting the youngster since May.

At 15 years and 53 days of age Ken Roczen became the youngest GP winner ever in front of his home crowd. The Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2 rider had an incredible day at only his fifth GP appearance which happened at his home venue Teutschenthal. The second youngest rider winning a GP is Dutch Dave Strijbos (16 years and 172 days) followed by French Sebastien Tortelli (16 years and 345 days).

Ken Roczen  MX2  - FIM Motocross  Germany
Ken Roczen became the youngest GP winner ever after finishing second in each of the MX2 motos in his home race.
Roczen took two second places in the moto’s, losing the victory from Frossard in heat one and battling it out with Championship leader Musquin in moto two. Eventually Roczen settled for another second in the final moto to take the overall.

CLS’ Frossard was second overall taking another podium at Teutschenthal after his maiden one from last year. In heat one Frossard won after French countryman Musquin handed him the race lead when he crashed. Though a difficult second moto left the Frenchman disappointed as he slipped twice and recovered to an eventual fifth.

KTM mounted Musquin was third in the GP which he left again with the red plate. Securing the victory in the final moto, Musquin could keep up his podium row taking the third consecutive rostrum finish.

Runner up in the Championship Paulin put in two strong heats to finish fourth overall, as he won a three way battle for third in heat two involving also Schiffer and Goncalves.

The latter and Guarneri completed the top six. The Italian and the Portuguese remained third and fourth in the Championship respectively with just 10 points in between them as Frossard closed in but remained in fifth.

With defending Champion Lancelot sidelined by a right shoulder injury, Laier won at home to snatch the red plate from the French.

Stephi Laier  WMX  - FIM Motocross  Germany
With Lancelot out of action Laier was able to sweep the Women's Motocross round, putting another German on top.
The podium was completed by Papenmeier and Franke for an all German top three.

Despite a dislocated shoulder from last week, Lancelot tried to race this fifth round but she could not even end the first moto yesterday. Today Lancelot did not even line up for the final heat as her presence in the remaining two rounds in Sweden and Holland is doubtful.

Taking another victory after yesterday’s first heat, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Laier topped her home podium and brought home 50 valuable points to snatch the red plate from Lancelot, who had it since round one in Bulgaria.

Second on the podium was Papenmeier of Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2 who took her fourth consecutive podium finish and made up for a difficult German round in 2008, when she did not make it to the podium.

Papenmeier ended heat two in third place after she was overtaken by compatriot Franke of Kawasaki Elf Pfeil who took second eventually. Franke completed an all German podium as the home trio was followed by Kane and De Mol rounding off the top five.

Papenmeier is now second in the Championship standings right ahead of Kawasaki duo Lancelot and Franke.

1. Stephanie Laier (GER, KTM), 26:18.288

MX1 - After 9 of 16 Rounds
MX1 Rider Quotes
Max Nagl is Max Nagls biggest fan  MX1  - FIM Motocross  Germany
Tony Cairoli – Yamaha – 1st
“It hard to pass on this track and I waited too long behind Josh at the start of the first moto. Only on the last lap could I catch Max and there was not enough time to set him up to overtake properly. When I was second in the next moto I looked for two laps for the right line to pass and then rode my race. I could hear the crowd and it was pretty good for me because I could not see the pit-board so I was listening to them to know if Max was coming close! We are now in the second half of the championship and I am having fun again. I made some more points today.”

David Philippaerts - Yamaha – 2nd
“It was a difficult day, a difficult weekend in fact. We could not get the bike set-up just as I wanted it and that meant a fight out there. We tried a few different changes but without much luck. My starts weren’t good but I could still pass many riders and to take fourth overall was good for me. The track was fast and bumpy and that made it quite dangerous; it was easy to crash.”

Max Nagl – KTM – 3rd
“Today I went out and I really wanted to win the first moto, especially as Toni (Cairoli) had beaten me in the final lap of the qualifying. But winning that race cost me a lot of energy and I was a bit tired in the second race. Today I managed to reach my goal of being on the podium in my home GP and I picked up some good championship points. Now I am only four points behind David Philippaerts in second place. This weekend was really positive for MX in Germany because Steffi (Laier of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team), Ken Roczen (winner of the MX2 GP) and I were all on the podium. We also learned that the MX of Nations will be in Teuschenthal in 2013 and this is also very good for our sport. Today was great for me to have so much support from the crowd. They were amazing and it is very important when you are racing your home GP to get that support.”

Josh Coppins - Yamaha - 4th:
“I’m pumped. That’s the first time in a while I could do two strong motos. Both of my starts were good and the only thing that I’m a little disappointed about was a bit of a lack of speed in the opening stages. Overall, though this was much better. The result of the second moto wasn’t as good as the first but the riding was encouraging; I was more like my old self.”
Clement Desalle – Honda – 5th
“The track was really difficult and the terrain was quite strange. My first start was not so good and I was in the top ten. I came back slowly to fifth. In the second heat the start was better and I was fighting with Coppins, Philippaerts and Leok. On the last lap I was close with Philippaerts and Coppins, we were in the same second, and I made a small mistake before the finish that lost me a top five result. I really went for it on the last corner and thought I could pass Coppins. I was full gas and that made me crash on the landing past the finish line. I am not so happy but will hope for better next time.”

Ken de Dycker – Suzuki – 6th
"I am really happy to be back on the podium. The first moto was disappointing as I didn't have a good start and couldn't pass anybody. The lens came out of my goggles and it was really hard from the first moments. The second moto went really well and with the good start things were much easier. The track was rough today and it was better for me. Physically I am feeling OK. We changed the sprocket after the first moto and that made quite a difference because the power was almost too strong in the first. I gave myself a bit of a kick in the ass after the first moto and I wanted that good start. Once I was in the top three I got relaxed and into a rhythm and could push harder."
MX2 Rider Quotes
Marvin Musquin and Rui Goncalves  MX2  - FIM Motocross  Germany
Ken Roczen – Suzuki - 1st
"I don't know what to say; this is amazing for me. After my first two GPs I saw that the podium was possible. I always do my best and I hoped for a podium here, with a bit of luck, but didn't expect the win. Musquin was going fast but I thought I could pass him. Towards the end I knew that second place would give the overall so I rode safe. All the attention has come quickly and it isn't always easy to give people what they want but I try to do what I can!"

Steven Frossard – Kawasaki – 2nd
“I had a good opening race; after a decent start I came immediately to second position behind Musquin and followed him until he crashed. I was watching his lines and was waiting for the last ten minutes to attack him, but he fell and then I just had to control the gap over the rest. I knew that I could win my first GP here but unfortunately I had a bad jump from the gate. I came back to fourth but crashed and lost two places, and then crashed again. Fifth and second overall is not too bad, but I was expecting a win… The next rounds will take place on sandy tracks, I’m working hard alongside Thierry Godfroid and I can say that I am starting to enjoy riding in the sand.”

Marvin Musquin – KTM – 3rd
“I managed to take the holeshot in the first race but I was not riding that well and I made some mistakes,” Musquin said later. “I crashed and it was quite hard to make up ground again because somehow I lost my rhythm. Then Rui (factory team-mate Goncalves) got the holeshot in the second race. He was fast but I managed to get past him and I led the race for a while until Ken Roczen overtook me. I went on and managed to fight for the win in the second moto but it was not easy for me like it was in France. I got some good points and I am happy for Roczin that he won his home GP. I know how that is, he is very young and he deserved to win. Young Ken Roczin of Germany, the ultimate winner of the MX2 GP was racing in only his fifth GP and is only 15-year-old.”

Gautier Paulin – Kawasaki – 4th
“In both races my starts weren’t as good as my rivals in the championship, that’s a pity as this weekend I was sure I was able to beat them. We worked on the bike after France and we improved the suspension as well as the engine, we reach made another step and I’m sure that it will help us for the second part of the series. I crashed twice during the first heat and that cost me the fourth place, I finished only one thousand of a second behind Guarneri! I made another mistake early in the second moto, but I pushed to secure third place and I’m happy as I rode more aggressively on the bike. Physically I was fine and I proved it by making my best lap-times in the last circulations, now I need to continue working on my starts.”

Rui Goncalves – KTM – 5th
“This was a tough weekend for me. I missed my rhythm and all I can say is I now look forward to the next races in Latvia and I want to be back riding the way I know I can.”
