Although the Lucas Oil Motocross Championship enjoyed a short hiatus this weekend, there was still plenty of racing to be had. The 2010 Amateur National Championship at Loretta Lynn’s ranch concluded, and the MXGP series made a stop in Loket for the GP of the Czech Republic where our good friend Claudio was taking in the action.

We got word this weekend that Antonio Cairoli and David Philippaerts will not race for Italy in the 2010 Motocross of Nations due to sponsorship issues. We've heard that, "the Italian Federation is forcing them to race with 'Maglia Azzurra' shirt, but their teams won't support them if they don't run team sponsors' logos... In the past they've found a compromise to race, but this year the problem seems impossible to solve."

Tanel Leok just missed out on his second GP win this year at Loket. He won the first moto, but a crash in the second left the door open for Tony Cairoli to chalk another win into the W column.

Marvin Musquin narrowly won the MX2 class at Loket over Ken Rozen, who won the first moto. Roczen would finish second behind Musquin in the final moto, but it wasn't enough to secure the overall.

Although Loretta Lynn's is considered the pinnacle of amateur motocross racing and has been held at the ranch for almost 30 years, healthy food vending has yet to catch on. Giraldo's offers up some good eats, but if you are looking for healthy cuisine, you should be prepared to make it yourself.

No, Ryan Dungey did not decide to come back and finally get that 450 A title he never had a chance to pursue. This is Suzuki ace Austin Howell who had a fairly solid week and even claimed a moto win, but was unable to take an overall championship.

Jason Anderson (82) was another rider on fire in Tennessee. The Kawasaki rider would win motos with seeming ease until his final to motos when things went south. A fifth in 450 A was still good enough for a championship, but a blown motor and subsequent DNF in 250 A/Pro Sport cost Anderson another title.

Gannon Audette may be soft spoken on the microphone, but he lets his racing speak for itself. Four moto wins and one championship for the week show that Gannon could be ready for the big time. While he may not be a household name like Trettel or Cianciarulo, Audette is a naturally talented rider with some serious speed.

Kevin Walker strikes a pose before heading out for his final moto. Doug Dubach, shown in the background, and Walker are absolute rivals on the track as they traded wins in the 40 Plus class. But off the track, the two legends pit right next to one another, share resources and stories, and have a great deal of respect for one another. That is what Loretta's is all about.

According to his brother Darryn, Shane Durham did not ride for three weeks prior to Loretta's, nor does he ride all that often to begin with, thanks to working a full time job. Still he came out of Hurricane Mills with a sixth overall in 450 A.

Jessy Nelson has the speed, style, and aggression of a seasoned pro, but unfortunately those elements do not always translate into results. Poor starts forced Nelson to work his way through the pack in just about every moto and while he was able to come away with a bronze overall in 250 B Modified, Jessy was certainly not satisfied. The 15 year old still has plenty of time to conquer Loretta's on big bikes.

Mike Sleeter chats it up with former factory ace and amateur superstar, Buddy Antunez. The great thing about LL's is the amount of former racers and recent graduates who come out to keep an eye on the scene. Throughout the week Ricky Carmichael, Ryan Villopoto, Dean Wilson, Darryn Durham, PJ Larsen, Travis Preston, and many more were spotted checking out the action.

Jay, Vermont's Dakota Alix may come from one of the coldest places in the U.S. but he rides like he is never off of a dirt bike. Okay so he now lives in Cairo, GA just like half of the amateur kids do, but he is still really fast. He was edged out for the Supermini 1 class win by Cooper Webb who 1-2-1 finishes beat Alix's 2-1-2.

On Wednesday, the heat index reach 115 degree Fahrenheit with about 90 percent humidity. Here Mitch Oldenberg and Claudio Leocata cool off in the impound area following a grueling mid summer moto. Oldenberg easily took the first Schoolboy 1 moto but then seem to struggle for the rest of the week. Born and raised in Argentina, Leocata made the trek to the U.S. just for this race and showed that not all of the fast guys come from only the States, Europe, or Australia as he clicked off third and fourth overall in both Schoolboy classes.

Ian Trettel and his camp were pretty pumped about his 250 A win and were not afraid to show it. When you think about all of the effort and time that goes into winning at the highest amateur level, then what it means in terms of securing rides for a rookie pro season, a win at Hurricane Mills truly is priceless.

DC Shoes had this helmet painted up for Malcom Stewart who was supposed to make his final amateur appearance in Tennessee. Unfortunately he got hurt just before hand and was unable to compete. Too bad because he would have had one of the coolest lids on the track.

Jeremy Martin took three moto wins throughout the week, but they were unfortunately not all in one class. If not for a poor finish, Martin could have captured Schoolboy 2. Still, the son of the Martin's who own Spring Creek and brother of current pro racer Alex, certainly has some promise.

Doug Dubach is a beast. The former factory Yamaha rider and legendary development ace probably has the most consistent lap times out there. After the rain on Wednesday, Doug had one of the first motos the following day and got just a little muddy during his moto. Solution? Just jump into the creek with all of your gear and start washing away.

Matt Bisceglia (pronounced Bish-el-ee-ah) is one of the rising stars of the amateur scene, but this particular week was not very kind to the new JGRMX rider. Competing in both Schoolboy classes, his best finishes were two bronze medals. Unfortunately those were offset by bad luck and a bike that refused to fire up after a small crash... his Mom was still proud though. Nevertheless, keep an eye out for the likable teen.

LOKET (CZECH REPUBLIC), 8 August 2010 – With the weather making up for yesterday's rain with a bright sun, the Bonver Grand Prix of Czech Republic turned up to be another hard fought round of the FIM Motocross World Championship handing victories to Tony Cairoli in the MX1 class and Marvin Musquin in the MX2 class, both leading their respective Championship and holding a chance to wrap up the Title in the next round in Brazil.

Cairoli topped the podium from Clement Desalle and Tanel Leok, the latter having snatched moto one victory from Cairoli who made up by winning the final heat. Steve Ramon and Max Nagl completed the top five ahead of David Philippaerts.

Musquin and Ken Roczen battled hard for the Czech GP victory but it was Musquin ending on top courtesy of his victory in the final heat. Roczen, who won moto one, could do no better than second in heat two and dropped down to second on the podium while Gautier Paulin was third overall. Poleman Steven Frossard crashed in race one and was seventh overall.

In the EMX 125 Jordi Tixier won this Czech round and wrapped up the first ever EMX 125 Title already at the end of heat one. Completing the podium were Sulivan Jaulin and Jason Clermont.

MX1
Taking the Bonver Grand Prix of Czech Republic today, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Cairoli extended his winning streak to three consecutive wins – six in total this year. The Italian was snatched the first moto win by a fast Tanel Leok but made up for that in the second heat, leading the whole moto and extending his record of laps at the lead to 222 – exactly like the Championship leader's start number. Cairoli is now heading towards his second MX1 World Title as he leads the MX1 series with an 84 point advantage with three rounds to go.

Taking second overall in the scenario of his maiden GP win last year, Desalle of Rockstar Teka Suzuki World MX1 could not make up points on Cairoli this weekend. Desalle struggled at the start of moto one and was then forced to recover to an eventual third place. The Belgian took a much better start in the final moto but could not close the gap with a fast Cairoli and ended runner up to the Italian.

LS Motors Honda's Tanel Leok was on route to win his second Grand Prix of 2010 after he beat Cairoli in moto one to win in front of the KTM racer. A crash in the final moto hampered Leok's classification but the Estonian found his way through the pack and recovered to an eventual fifth, making it to the overall podium by six points.

Rockstar Teka Suzuki World MX1's Ramon was fourth overall, securing the position with a strong outing in the final moto. After ending a bitter sixth in race one, Ramon made up in the final moto by working his way up to an eventual third.

Completing the top five was Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX1's Nagl who clinched a fifth and a fourth place in the heats.
Philippaerts instead struggled and missed the top five. The Italian finished sixth overall after crashing in the final moto – which followed his fourth place of heat one.

Bobryshev was seventh ahead of Gonçalves, Strijbos and Coppins completing the top ten. Guarneri instead scored no points and ended at the bottom of the standings, with a crash in the first moto hurting his back.

Church made it to the 11th place to mark CCM's return to action. The Brit was just ahead of French Kawasaki duo Pourcel and Aubin.

MX2
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX2's Musquin finally broke his streak of bad luck in Loket –where he broke his foot in 2008 and his engine in 2009- by winning the Bonver Grand Prix of Czech Republic after a tight battle with rival Roczen. By the time he recovered to second in race one Roczen was too fast to be caught but in the second moto the duo battled harder for the win. Musquin was first, then Roczen moved past but the German crashed and handed the position back to Musquin, crossing the finish line and going straight on top of the podium. The 78 point advantage on Roczen remained unchanged as the duo finished level in points this weekend but the forthcoming Brazilian GP can be Musquin's first occasion to clinch the Title – the French actually won his maiden Championship last year in Brazil.

Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2'Roczen was all set on winning another Grand Prix after breaking the ice in Lommel with his first season's win. The German dominated the opening moto but a crash in the second moto while trying to open up a gap on Musquin made him change his mind and reset his goals to a safer second place. Ending second overall, Roczen collected as many points as Musquin and is now looking forward to winning the Brazilian round.

Celebrating his second podium of a difficult 2010 season, Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross' Paulin was the third man on the Czech podium. Recovering from a bad start in moto one, Paulin took an eventual sixth but earned the podium with a solid third place in the final moto. The French is now close to the top ten of the Championship despite having missed the first four rounds.

Kawasaki CLS' Van Horebeek missed the rostrum by just one point and finished fourth overall. The Belgian was fourth in the first moto after trying to earn the third spot by putting pressure on youngster Herlings. In moto two Van Horebeek was fifth.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX2's Simpson took fifth overall but aimed at more, especially after a solid start to the first heat. Towards the end of the moto instead Simpson dropped down from second to fifth and again in the second moto he ended sixth after a start in the top three.

Tonus was sixth ahead of poleman Frossard, the latter being hampered by an early crash in the first moto. Roelants, Osborne and Kullas completed the top ten while Herlings was 11th. The Dutch teenager was involved in a crash in the final moto which dislocated his right shoulder. Home rider Michek was right behind in twelfth.
