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.

FIM Motocross Sweden Rider Quotes
Goncalves  Nagl  and Laier taking a Sweden sweep for KTM.
MX1 Post-Race Rider Quotes

Max Nagl – KTM – 1st

“I had two good starts today and I felt like I was in good control right through the first race. I won it without problems and I did it with a good winning margin. I also had a good start in the second race and even though Cairoli was in front, I managed to keep pace with him and I didn’t ever give up. I always had in my mind that I could have a good fight with Toni. That’s good for us riders and the competition and it’s good for the spectators. Now I know that the championship is not over yet. Ken (de Dyker) for sure will be fast in Lommel and also in Lierop but I also like these tracks and there will be some very good fights. Stefan (Everts, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team manager) has been helping me with the lines because I lost some time on Toni and we will work together on this so I can be strong for Lommel. I am second in the standings now and I know there is a big gap between me and Toni but my goal was to be in the top three. Now I’m not scared to dare to hope to go for the title. I have never been this far in the championship before.”

Tony Cairoli - Yamaha - 2nd
“I had to close the gas at the start of the first moto because I risked a crash. A lot of riders got past me and by the end of the first lap I had a lot of work to do. I did not want to make any mistakes so I looked for the best and easiest places to pass. It was not easy to overtake David and we had a clean and good fight there for a while. I caught up to Desalle in the final laps but for me he is one of the most difficult riders to get by without taking a gamble. A holeshot is always a help so the second moto start was much better. I pushed hard at the beginning as Max kept close but I could control the gap to the end.”

Ken De Dycker – Suzuki - 3rd
"It was difficult to pass out there. The speed was virtually the same between us all so to overtake would have involved me pushing a rider off-line or doing something aggressive and it wasn't worth the risk to crash. I did not get close enough to Nagl in the first moto and it was pretty much the same in the second with Philippaerts; however I am quite pleased with two results like this. Everybody is so fast that it will be hard to push back into the top three. I have already lost points in the beginning of the season through some mistakes. Now I will just keep on fighting and hope to get stronger for the next races."

David Philippaerts – Yamaha - 4th
“I felt better in the second moto than the first. Earlier on I lost lines easily and generally found the race difficult, my start was also poor. In the second race I was better out of the gate and got into third place right away. I knew De Dycker was getting close to me sometimes but there was no risk of losing the position, especially because at the finish he was probably more tired than me. Physically I feel that I am getting back to normal after my illness last week and this was a consistent result.”

Clement Desalle – Honda - 5th
“Yesterday Aigar Leok crashed in front of me. I restarted with a bent set of handlebars and I could only come back to 21st for the gate. Even though I had this disadvantage I was really happy with my starts. In the first moto I went into third place and rode my race from there. The second start was also good. I got into fifth and the top five were pushing really hard. I had a small battle with De Dycker but then I lost the back of him and Philippaerts. I gained some ground during the race but then made a mistake and settled for my position. It was a lonely ride, like I was training! Overall the weekend ended quite well because it did not start in the best way.”

Tanel Leok - Yamaha - 6th
“My starts were bad and I could not get away with the front guys. My riding and lap-times were also not great and I only felt an improvement towards the end. I lost the chance of better positions just because of those first laps.”

Josh Coppins - Yamaha - 7th
“I struggled to be honest and my speed wasn’t too good. My start was OK in the first race but I just didn’t quite have the rhythm and we made a mistake with the tire choice. Sixth was the best I could do and we weren’t fast enough. I had a bit of trouble with the gearbox out of the gate in the second moto and hit neutral. I went up from last to seventh and hit neutral a few more times which was pretty scary so I had to run the race out from there. Overall I did not have the pace today and need to do a bit of work to get back the form that I had last week.”

MX2 Post-Race Rider Quotes

Rui Goncalves – KTM – 1st
“Today I had a 1-2 result and that’s very good for me and for my team. We won all three classes so it’s a great team and a great job. Ken (Roczen) passed me in the first heat and he was very fast so I tried to keep pace with him and be happy with second place. Then I went out and tried to do my best in the second race. I tried to have a good start and to quickly get into my rhythm and that made all the difference. This win has been very good for my confidence because I have had my ups and downs during the season and I’ve had some very tough moments. Now I am fighting for the title and I will keep giving my best no matter what. I will fight and try to win the championship.”

Ken Roczen – Suzuki - 2nd
"I had a big battle with Rui in the first moto which I really enjoyed. Winning my first Grand Prix in Teutschenthal was an awesome feeling but my first moto win feels just as good. I got bumped coming out of the gate in the second moto, but this is part of racing and I just had to ride as hard as I could to come from outside the top-20. I made a big charge and ran out of time to close on the guys at the front. I am really happy with this second place and the way things are going for me this season."

Gautier Paulin – Kawasaki – 3nd
“During the first race I was fourth when I crashed pretty hard in a long and sandy corner; I took the inside line but it was slippery and I fell at high speed. I had some pain in my back and neck, but I re-started quickly in ninth place; unfortunately it’s difficult to make the difference on this track, and there are not many spots to pass. I lost some points with my seventh position, maybe a podium was possible in this race. My second start was better, I made some good moves during the first lap and I came to second; then I tried to come-back on Goncalves but I had some troubles with the lappers. The bike was perfect. I had a lot of fun this weekend and due to the fact that Musquin was not racing the championship is closer now. I’m thirteen points behind him, Gonçalves is only ten points from me, and everything is possible with four more races to go. We’ve three weeks to prepare Lommel; I will be ready for it.’
