Results MotoCross World Championship, Valkenswaard, The Netherlands


A busy Grand Prix of the Netherlands marked the FIM Motocross World Championship's first visit to northern Europe this season with the sand of Valkenswaard providing the challenge.

For this race Evgeny Bobryshev (Team HRC) was the sole works CRF450R runner after team mate Max Nagl suffered an injury in training and missed the event. The Russian placed tenth overall whilst Antonio Cairoli (KTM) took his fourth MXGP victory of 2014. The Sicilian defeated Jeremy Van Horebeek (Yamaha) and Kevin Strijbos (Suzuki) to the top of the podium. The event was the scene of a career-best finish in the premier class for privateer Honda rider, Joel Roelants, as the Belgian ranked fifth on the CRF450R from the confines of his own J-Race team.

The black terrain of the Eurocircuit did not offer a deep festival of ruts and sandy berms due to the decent weather but the ground was slippery and hard in places as well as very bumpy and draining in others. The sand still required a special technique and schooling and healthy degree of caution.

Bobryshev launched into the weekend with indifferent memories of Valkenswaard. It was here in 2010 that he pushed himself onto the highest level of the premier class by leading part of the MX1 Grand Prix and finishing fourth in what was his maiden season on the 450s. However in 2012 a thumb injury at the same venue for the campaign-opener started a difficult run of physical setbacks and niggles and stalled the excellent progress he had made as a factory Honda racer in 2011.

'Bobby' is at least returning to a decent state of fitness and form since re-breaking his leg earlier this year. Mindful of the need for consistency the 26 year old started well and rode to a decent fifth position in the first moto and was close to securing fourth spot until Clement Desalle (Suzuki) snuck past on the final lap. '777' was set for a similar standing near the top of the leaderboard in the second outing until he was involved in a freak incident. Gautier Paulin (Kawasaki) crashed entering a turn next to him and the spiralling Kawasaki hit his handlebar, damaging his right little finger and the rear wheel became wedged around his front brake. He needed a marshal's help to get untangled and from there tried to regain ground but only reached eighteenth position by the end of the thirty minute and two lap distance.

Max Nagl was absent from the Grand Prix after a training accident the previous week left the German with a broken wrist. Nagl is already undergoing treatment and could miss up to four rounds as the injury heals and a rehab programme is addressed. Max hopes to be back on the CRF450R in time for his home event at Teutschenthal towards the end of June.

Joel Roelants was inspired at a circuit that almost constitutes a home Grand Prix. The Belgian found a good rhythm in the first moto to score eighth position but was even stronger in the second to finish in fifth place. The latter result marked his best in just his second season in MXGP and delivered fifth overall; another personal highest position.

In the MX2 class, Tim Gajser (Honda Gariboldi) continues to be a presence among the top half of the division with his works CRF250R. The Slovenian rode to a solid fourth position in Saturday's Qualification Heat and in the sunshine of Sunday fought hard. Gajser was embroiled in a second turn pile-up in Moto1 that cast him towards the back of the pack and he rallied back to ninth position. In the second moto he conceded some ground in the opening laps until finding a more effective rhythm and again took ninth by the chequered flag giving him 10th overall in the GP classification. Team-mate Kei Yamamoto weathered his first Grand Prix in the sand with twenty-ninth position overall.

In the overall standings Dutch rider Jeffrey Herlings (KTM) dominated with wins in both motos to take the top step of the podium with Romain Febvre (Husqvarna) and Jordi Tixier (KTM) in second and third place.

Round six of the 2014 calendar takes place next weekend with Talavera de la Reina, close to Madrid, hosting the first Grand Prix of Spain since 2011. The hard-pack circuit welcomes the FIM Motocross World Championship for first time since 2000 when Gordon Crockard earned the 250cc GP victory riding a Honda CR250.

HONDA RIDER COMMENTS:

Evgeny Bobryshev:
Race Result: 5th/18th Championship position: 7th
"Again I'm at the centre of someone else's accident! The weekend started well and we had a good set-up with the bike and the first race was OK for me. I wasn't really that happy but it was a consistent performance. I am really missing bike time. I have been able to train and I feel better but still not like normal and that's what caused me to slow down at the end of the first race. I was feeling positive for the second moto but I saw Paulin have a big accident just ahead of me and his bike just spun up on top of my handlebar. I didn't crash but his brake disc became jammed and I could not get free. A flag marshal came and helped me and I could get out. I started coming back but after a few laps my hand started to hurt a lot and it was tough to hold on. It was a real shame because I like this track but again something seems to happen to me!"

Tim Gajser:
Race Result: 9th/9th Championship position: 8th
"I had a really good start in the first race but couldn't help getting involved in the crash on the second corner. I restarted in twenty-third and came back to ninth place. It was not so bad and I was happy with the lap-times. In the second race I touched with Jeffrey [Herlings] and someone else coming out of the gate so I had to back-off. I didn't have a great feeling on the bike in the beginning but it was getting better by the end. Not such a great weekend, but it could be worse!"
