ciairoli

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX1's Cairoli walked away from Mantova with his first GP win of the season and with the MX1 red plate which he snatched from team mate Nagl, winner in Bulgaria last weekend. Cairoli's success marked the first ever triumph in a Motocross GP of a 350cc bike in the likes of the KTM 350 SX-F. The Italian recovered to second in moto one after a bad start but rode an impressive final heat, dominating from the start to the flag.
Rockstar Teka Suzuki World MX1's Desalle took victory in the opening heat which he started leading after previous leader Philippaerts made a mistake and crashed. In the second moto instead he had to recover from the bottom of the top ten to a final fourth to secure the podium.

Third man on the rostrum was Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX1's Nagl who dropped down to second in the Championship. The German ended third twice in the heats.

Yamaha Monster Energy Ricci's De Dycker ended fourth overall ahead of a surprising Boog of Kawasaki Racing. The French MX1 debutant even took the holeshot in the second race.

Home rider Philippaerts ended a bitter eight. He was second in heat two but a penalty in the first heat –where he crashed and broke his exhaust pipe- saw him drop down to 19th.

MX2

muquin

Musquin of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX2 rolled to his fourth consecutive heat win to take another Grand Prix win. The defending MX2 Champion has been incredible through the first two Grand Prix's of 2010 and has only missed out on taking a pole so far.

Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2's Roczen took a solid second place finish as he gave his best to chase Musquin for the overall win in heat one. Towards the last part of the race the German came close to Musquin but could not move past him despite a dramatic last lap.

In the final moto instead it was team mate Herlings to worry Musquin. The 15 year old Dutch made up for his first heat crashes with a solid ride in the final heat, leading from the start to the penultimate lap, but made a mistake in the last lap due to tiredness. Musquin then passed and left Herlings in second, which was enough to secure the Dutchman his first career podium at only the second GP of his career.

Bike-it Cosworth Yamaha UK's Osborne was fourth overall courtesy of two good rides and Kawasaki CLS' Frossard was fifth. The French was third in moto one despite a crash –due to a sudden stop of his engine- but crashed at the opening lap of the final heat.
