-- Smarty’s MC News ‘Mega’ Moto Wrap for September 4, 2012
Yeehaa, the penultimate round of the AMA Motocross Championship is at the iconic Steel City National while round 14 of the 16 round World Motocross Championships is heading to the deep sand of Leirop in Belguim and let’s not forget that the World Enduro Championship regulars battled hard at rounds 13 and 14 in Finland.
There is also a heap of news including the obligatory Silly Season rumours….some that I made up, some that are true.
-- America - 2012 AMA Motocross Championship – Round 11 – Steel City - Delmont, Pennsylvania.
250 Race Report: Blake Baggett managed a rare holeshot in moto one but as per usual the championship leader lacked early pace and was quickly passed by Barcia, Roczen and Tomac.
After a couple of super-fast laps Tomac got around Roczen for second and set his sights on teammate Barcia while Baggett sat back in fourth just ahead of the fastest qualifier Marvin Musquin. We all waited for Baggett to start charging forward but the PC rider didn’t seem to have his usual spark.
After the best part of 20 minutes of Tomac ghosting Barcia around the slick layout the teammates ended up side by side through a section of jumps before Tomac JUST got ahead of Barcia before heading off for a substantial lead and eventual win ahead of Barcia, Roczen, Baggett, Musquin and Malcolm Stewart who stayed on long enough to get his best finish for the year.
Star-Valli Rockstar Yamaha rookie Jeremy Martin launched from the gate to grab the holeshot but Tomac quickly swept by the rookie to take the lead and the win by the proverbial mile. "I'm super pumped right now," said Tomac. "To cut Baggett's lead in half in one day is pretty encouraging, if we can go to Lake Elsinore and do the same thing, we'll be tied. It's going to be very interesting. I wish we were racing tomorrow."
Meanwhile Baggett had his hands full with Geico’s ‘other’ rider Justin Bogle who managed to keep Baggett behind him for two laps after which Baggett took over fifth before passing Musquin to take over fourth. Geico’s fourth rider in the class Wil Hahn managed sixth in the second moto for sixth overall.
Tomac’s perfect performance has cut his 28 point defect to Baggett to just 14 points leading into Lake Elsinore so look out for the fireworks when the gate drops next week, all four Geico riders will be looking to play spoiler to Baggett’s party.
The ‘Jatz’ Report: After qualifying in 21st young Australian rider Jackson Richardson went 21-19 for 21st outright on his privateer Honda CRF250R. For those who don’t know, Jatz hails from Cairns and has several junior Queensland and Australian titles to his name and has been spending a lot of time in the States in 2012. Look for Jatz to continue his career in the AMA Supercross and Motocross in 2013.

450 Race Report: After struggling in qualifying Dungey silenced the doubters by grabbing the first moto holeshot and instead of checking out the number 5 KTM rider took his time to find his lines and it wasn’t long before Chaparral Honda's Andrew Short had worked his way from fifth to get within striking distance of the leader but eventually settled for second place ahead of Alessi, Millsaps, Tyla Rattray, Jake Weimer, Izzi, Christian Craig and Kyle Chisholm.]
For the third time this season Broc Tickle’s Pro-Circuit KX450 has stopped on him and cost valuable points. Take Broc’s three mechanical dnfs away and he would well and truly be sitting third in this championship.
Alessi grabbed the holeshot in moto with Josh Grant, someone by the name of Zach Freeberg and Jake ’the sook’ Weimer in tow while Dungey was back in seventh place. Predictably Freeberg wasn’t able to cope with the pace and was nearly blown off the tracks when Weimer and Dungey came blasting by.
Dungey rode around the outside of Weimer then got by Grant for second. Grant would also surrender the moto podium position to Weimer a few laps later. Around this time Andrew Short came together with Kyle Regal with both riders hitting the ground hard.
With the skies opening up Dungey began to close the gap on Alessi and after a couple of unchacterisitc bobbles rode by Alessi who had twisted his ankle in a rut.
Dungey got the win while Alessi took second with Weimer rounding out the moto podium. "It was nice to come out of here with a win today, this place has been good to me in the past," said Dungey. "There were some good line choices, the second moto got a little slippery when that rain came, but I put in good laps and limited the mistakes. Luckily, I just went off the track a bit (with the bobble) and didn't lose too much ground. I want to continue winning with these last two races. They mean just as much as the 10 before."

-- Roczen and Musquin Stay Orange
KTM Motorsports has announced that former MX2 World Champions Marvin Musquin and Ken Roczen have both been given a new two-year contract with the US Red Bull/KTM Factory Racing Team.
This news is announced just as Musquin, a two-time MX2 World Champion, achieved the highlight of his U.S. racing career with the overall win in the 250 Motocross class at Unadilla Raceway. His teammate, Ken Roczen, also earned a career first after taking a 250 Motocross class win in the first moto at Unadilla.
“We’ve seen Marvin and Ken each have success in both the Supercross Lites and 250 Motocross class,” remarked Red Bull/KTM Factory Team Manager Roger DeCoster. "We have also seen both riders make tremendous progress in the past year and the team is extremely excited to continue working with both riders. We are very confident that with our ongoing support Marvin and Ken will have their share of success over the next two years. The goal is to be in the championship hunt in both the SX Lites and 250 MX series and ultimately work toward garnering U.S. title wins for both riders.”
For 2013, both riders will continue to race in the AMA Supercross Lites Series as well as the Lucas Oil Pro 250 Motocross Championship Series aboard the KTM 250 SX-F race machine. Upon signing his contract, Musquin stated, “I am very happy to re-sign with the KTM team. It has been my home for the past four seasons and I have been very happy and accomplished a lot of my goals riding for KTM. The team is always behind me and I am excited for what is to come.”
His teammate, Roczen, reported, “Everyone at KTM welcomed me with open arms, first in Austria at the factory, and then when I made the move to the U.S. I am very proud to say that I have another two-year’s with the team. I have the best people working on my team and what I feel is the best bike. I can’t wait for the final few rounds of the 2012 season and then to return to Supercross in 2013.”
-- Silly Season Rumours
- Broc Tickle is going to Hart and Huntington who now have factory Suzuki backing with Ricky Carmichael as a consultant. H&H is looking to lose their old status of hiring loose units like Josh Hansen and trying to gain some credibility around the AMA scene.
- Yoshimura Suzuki is going with James Stewart as their only rider for 2013 leaving Metcalfe out in the cold – remember, it was their shitbox that run out of fuel while Metty was going through a set of roller at Glen Helen thus leaving the Aussie with some pretty serious injuries. IF this rumour is true, they deserve James Stewart as their sole rider because the results will reflect the team’s inability to make rational decisions.
- Justin Brayton is going back to JGR Yamaha for 2013. JB10 will be a welcome return to the JGR crew after having the ‘fastest dickead on the planet’ crashing and trashing their YZs. IF Metcalfe is really out of a ride the JGR team could be his new home.
- Jeff Alessi is reportedly heading to Europe for 2013. Hmmm, he raced in America and failed, he has raced in Australia and failed, two guesses what will happen when the slowest of the Alessi brothers hit the tough tracks in Europe?
- Even though nothing has been confirmed, it looks like Ryan Villopoto is staying with Kawasaki alongside Jake Weimer.
- Chad Reed has signed himself for Two Two Motorsports for 2013 with no second rider confirmed……

-- Kirk Gibbs Racesafe and Sound
Kirk Gibbs has made a remarkable recovery and is in good spirits after suffering a horrific crash at Coolum over the weekend.
At the start of the final 30 minute moto of the 2012 National Motocross season, Gibbs came together with another rider in the air, crashing on the the downside of the jump before being landed on by following riders.
Gibbs was immediately attended to by the Suzuki Racesafe crew at the track with life threatening injuries. The team at Racesafe quickly stabiled Gibbs before he was transported to a local Hospital for further observation.
“I can remember everything up to the jump before I crashed and then nothing until I came around in the RaceSafe truck." stated Gibbs. "I spent two nights in Hospital under observation and now have just finished getting some scans revealing a broken wrist, collarbone and a few other minor issues.
“I feel pretty beat up at the moment and really sore all over but it could have been a lot worse of it weren’t for the RaceSafe team." said the Mount Gambier bases rider. "I can’t thank Simon and his team enough, they probably saved my life!” concluded a very thankful Gibbs.
-- Columb Continues with Raceline for 2012 ASX
New Zealand's Scott Columb has signed with Raceline Pirelli Suzuki to race the new Australian Supercross Championship with the team.
"I am looking forward to a successful supercross series, I am super excited and pumped that Raceline Suzuki have given me the opportunity to have a crack at this and I’ll take it with both hands and go from there." Columb said.
Raceline Pirelli team manage Chris Woods is looking forward to having Columb stay with the team for Supercross. "We worked out the deal at Moree to have Scott ride supercross with us, he is a great guy and adds a great flavour to the team." stated Woods. "Scott and Jay Wilson get along really well and Jay has taken a shining to him regarding his training and stuff like that which is a big bonus," he added.
While Columb will join established team mate Errol Willis in the Pro Lites class, Wilson will focus on winning the under 19s championship as the team try to defend the title it won with Willis in 2011. "We want to have a red hot crack at the under 19s with Jay Wilson and we want to give him the best leg up that we can. I think he can do well and he is definitely starting to come on strong now" said Woods.
Wilson himself is looking forward to hitting the track for the supercross
series. "I am looking forward to racing the under 19s class this season and am
looking forward to getting the supercross season off to a better start than the
Motocross season." Said Wilson. "I raced the first round last year then broke my
wrist on the Thursday before the second round, I have not done a lot of
supercross racing, but supercross is what I favour so hopefully I can get out
there and get it done." he added.
With only a short turn around before Supercross starts, Woods has sent both Columb and Wilson over to America for three weeks. "We have sent those two boys over to the Millsaps training facility, they didn't get to go over at the start of the year when Errol headed over to get some pre-season training for the motocross so we have sent the boys over to do a little bit of supercross training." explained Woods. "It should be good for them, they will be doing a little bit of riding with Gavin Faith who finished second over here last year with Honda.”
-- Europe - 2012 World Motocross Championship – Round 14 – Leirop, Belguim.
MX2 Qualifying Race: 1. Jeffrey Herlings (NED, KTM), 24:35.466; 2. Glenn Coldenhoff (NED, KTM), +0:04.657; 3. Zachary Osborne (USA, Yamaha), +0:17.030; 4. Arnaud Tonus (SUI, Yamaha), +0:24.245; 5. Jake Nicholls (GBR, KTM), +0:27.350; 6. Jeremy van Horebeek (BEL, KTM), +0:28.462; 7. Dylan Ferrandis (FRA, Kawasaki), +0:29.633; 8. Tommy Searle (GBR, Kawasaki), +0:34.757; 9. Max Anstie (GBR, Honda), +0:40.377; 10. Jordi Tixier (FRA, KTM), +0:41.552; 15. Alessandro Lupino (Ita, Hus), +1.11.236
MX2 Race Report: It is a pretty boring race report sorry with Dutchman Jeffrey Herlings nearly lapping the complete field in both motos.
Leirop is the toughest circuit on the calendar and in the opening moto Herlings lapped all but teammate Jeremy Van Horebeek while in the second moto only Van Horebeek, Max Anstie and arch rival Tommy Searle remained on the same lap as Herlings.
The parochial Dutch crowd loved Herlings’ 1-1 performance while his team-mate and good friend Van Horebeek went 2-2 ahead of the British trio of Max Anstie 3-3, Tommy Searle 4-4 and Jake Nicholls 5-9.
Herlings now leads Tommy Searle by 65 points in the MX2 Championship points and looks sure to wrap up the title in Italy next weekend. “I loved this weekend, I kept charging and charging and I saw I was lapping some good riders and it was a case of ‘Okay, just one more.’ I saw and passed Tommy, got Max and needed one more lap for Jeremy and that would have been all the field, it was a good first moto.“
“I grew up in the sand so I know how to race it. I rode almost the same pace for forty minutes and most of the other guys are fast in the beginning but then those lap-times drop by maybe over ten seconds. Mine drop also but maybe not as much.”
Moto One: 1. Herlings, 2. Van Horebeek, 3. Anstie, 4. Searle, 5. Nicholls, 6. Tonus, 7. Osborne, 8. Tixier, 9. Condenhoff, 10. Tonkov, 11. Lupino, 12. Teillet, 13. Larsen, 14. Febvre, 15. Heibye
MX2 Moto Two: 1. Herlings, 2. Van Horebeek, 3. Anstie, 4. Searle, 5. Tonus, 6. Coldenhoff, 7. Tixier, 8. Osborne, 9. Nicholls, 10. Ferrandis, 11. Lupino, 12. Larsen, 13. Tonkov, 14. Teillet, 15. Leiber
MX2 Overall: 1. Herlings 50pts, 2. Van Horebeek 44pts, 3. Anstie 40pts, 4. Searle 36pts, 5. Tonus 31pts, 6. Nicholls 28pts, 7. Coldenhoff 27pts, 8. Tixier 27pts, 9. Osborne 27pts, 10. Lupino 20pts
The Lupino Report: Husqvarna TC250 mount Alessandro Lupino started his qualification race in 15th but a crash on lap four saw the Italian drop back to 20th but a late race charge put the hard charger back in 15th by race end.
Lupino went from just outside the top 20 all the way up to 9th in the opening moto but fell late in the race to finish in 11th and in the second moto he managed the same result to maintain his 10th place in the championship.
Alessandro Lupino: “It has been the most difficult race of the championship so far. I kept up a good pace in the first race and was pulling back places, but after falling I was unable to keep up the rhythm. It was a shame because I felt up to it and could have regained positions. I got off to a flyer in the second race, and I tried to make up ground without errors. The condition of the track really limited me and I began to feel tiredness in the first race, so I tried not to make any mistakes and take the valuable points. On the whole, I’m happy with the way it turned out. I’ve made up points on the riders ahead of me in the championship standings, and now I’m confidently looking forward to the next GP where I hope to get a good result."
MX2 Championship Points: 1. Herlings 622pts, 2. Searle 557pts, 3. Van Horebeek 519pts, 4. Nicholls 387pts, 5. Roelants 367pts, 6. Tixier 367pts, 7. Anstie 314pts, 8. Ferrandis 272pts, 9. Butron 263pts, 10. Lupino 241pts
MX1 Qualifying Race: 1. Antonio Cairoli (ITA, KTM), 24:12.893; 2. Maximilian Nagl (GER, KTM), +0:13.633; 3. Ken de Dycker (BEL, KTM), +0:27.226; 4. Gautier Paulin (FRA, Kawasaki), +0:28.214; 5. Shaun Simpson (GBR, Yamaha), +0:31.311; 6. Tanel Leok (EST, Suzuki), +0:32.943; 7. Kevin Strijbos (BEL, KTM), +0:43.903; 8. Clement Desalle (BEL, Suzuki), +0:54.453; 9. Christophe Pourcel (FRA, Kawasaki), +1:04.796; 10. Marcus Schiffer (GER, Suzuki), +1:05.700;
MX1 Race Report: Antonio Cairoli was not quite as dominant as Herlings but the Italian who practices in the sand every week (has no-one picked up on the fact that good sand riders win championships?) completely blitzed the MX1 field and like Herlings should be able to wrap up the championship next week at his home GP.
“I’m really happy about my riding over all the weekend, it went just the way we had planned in the team." said Cairoli.
Clement Desalle finished with 6-7 results and is now 78 points behind Cairoli in the MX1 Championship points. Christophe Pourcel continues to under-perform going 0-0 and losing third place in the series points to Gautier Paulin.
Oh yeah, second overall in MX1 was De Dycker with 3-2 and third was Tanel Leok with 4-3. It is Leok’s first podium in over a year.
MX1 Moto One: 1. Cairoli, 2. Nagl, 3. De Dycker, 4. Leok, 5. Paulin, 6. Desalle, 7. Bobryshev, 8. Simpson, 9. Strijbos, 10. Schiffer, 11. De Reuver, 12. Boog, 13. Guarneri, 14. Goncalves, 15. Potisek
MX1 Moto Two: 1. Cairoli, 2. De Dycker, 3. Leok, 4. Bobryshev, 5. Simpson, 6. Strijbos, 7. Desalle, 8. Goncalves, 9. Paulin, 10. Barragan, 11. Boog, 12. Guarneri, 13. Schiffer, 14. Potisek, 15. Krestinov
MX1 Overall: 1. Cairoli 50pts, 2. De Dycker 42pts, 3. Leok 38pts, 4. Bobryshev 32pts, 5. Simpson 29pts, 6. Desalle 29pts, 7. Paulin 28pts, 8. Strijbos 27pts, 9. Nagl 22pts, 10. Goncalves 20pts

The next round of the MX1 and MX2 World Championships will take place next weekend at Faenza, Ravenna, Italy.
-- Frossard Stays With Yamaha MX1 for 2013
2011 FIM MX1-GP Motocross World Championship runner-up Steven Frossard will stay with the Monster Energy Yamaha team for the 2013 season.
“I’m really happy to continue with Monster Energy Yamaha because I think it is one of the best teams in the FIM World Championship,” said Frossard. “I’m also happy that Michele [Rinaldi] and Yamaha Motor Europe wanted to keep me and they trust me. It was an easy decision to sign another contract. We had already been talking since the start of the year and I feel like I have a home here.”
“Securing Steven was a priority for us because we all saw his pace and potential in a first excellent season with Monster Energy Yamaha,” said Yamaha Motor Europe Racing Manager Laurens Klein Koerkamp. “I’m happy we have been able to announce the first part of our plan for the MX1 and MX2-GP classes for 2013 and we will have more news very soon on what we believe is a young, exciting and very competitive line-up for the new season.”

-- 2012 World Enduro Championships – Round 13 and 14 – GP of Finland
Finland hosted rounds 13 and 14 of the 2012 World Enduro Championship and KTM’s Antione Meo and Christophe Nambotin secured the E1 and E3 championship respectively with two round remaining.
Meo and Namboti have dominated their respective classes and Pit Beirer, KTM’s Head of Motorsports is wrapped in their performance. “Antoine and Christophe have been the stand out riders throughout the season, they are great ambassadors for Enduro and for France and they are great role models for our younger riders.”
“They have also embraced KTM's 'Ready to Race' culture and they have done it with skill and sportsmanship that is a credit to them both. My thanks also to the entire team, to our team manager Fabio Farioli, and all those back at Mattighofen who have worked so hard to make these two titles possible.” Beirer added.
Nambotin was the only starter on Sunday in E3 for KTM after teammate David Knight had to spend overnight in hospital after a crash during Saturday’s race had driven the bike handlebars into his stomach. Team boss Fabio Farioli confirmed he was being released on Sunday after doctors confirmed that he had sustained no internal injuries. Knight will ride again in the final two rounds in France.
The E2 class is still up for grabs heading in the GP of France with Hisaberg’s Pierre-Alexandre Renet holding an 11-point lead over KTM’s Cristobal Guerrero with 40 points available for two wins.
