FIM MOTOCROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP – ROUND #13 – GERMANY

PHILIPPAERTS 6th IN THE GERMAN GP BACK TO HIS BEST FORM !

 

For the first time in history the German MX Grand Prix was organized inside the spectacular road track of Lausitzring with the public comfortably sit in the huge stands of the Turn 1 on the original road track enjoying the spectacular view of the MX circuit.

 

David PHILIPPAERTS after a troubled season and the big crash of Maggiora, signed in Germany his best Grand Prix of the year with a brilliant 6th overall of the day and riding two very strong motos to bring his Honda CRF450R Pro Circuit at the forefront positions. In the first moto DP19 had to overcome a strong contact with Guarnieri in the first lap which caused him the loss of many places and he came from the 19th to finish 8th after overtaking loads of riders and, in the second moto he took a good start in fifth and was riding all the race with the leading riders and only lost one place to finish 6th. Philippaerts is now closing on the 9th positions in the overall of the championship and the next Grand Prix in Loket could be one to follow for him !

 

Tthe young russian Vseva BRYLYAKOV after some good performance in the last three GP’s, suffered a difficult weekend not adapting at the SX typed track of Lausitzring and could only finish 21st in the first moto and crashing after a few laps in the second moto. The lack of experience could only be filled with more Grand Prix under his belt.

 

Germany was also marking the return to Europe of the american Michael LEIB who brought over from Usa his Honda racing bike but due to the extreme heat the bike could never work properly during the whole weekend forcing the american to abandon both motos after a few laps.

 

 

Giacomo Gariboldi, Team Manager Honda Gariboldi:

 

It was great to see DP19 back where he should have been all season without the troubles he has had. We still have four GP’s and David could point to the final 9th overall in the championship which could be considered anyway a good result for him after the last two seasons compromised by serious accidents.
