The 2019 MXGP of Great Britainat Matterley Basin is completed after an amazing Sunday of racing! A full weekend of racing was topped off by the astonishing performances of overall GP winners, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Antonio Cairoli in MXGP and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Thomas Kjer Olsen in MX2.





The famous Matterley Basin circuit provided epic conditions and great weather to match its beautiful hillsides. The atmosphere was added to by the always vocal and enthusiastic British Motocross fans. Over the weekend a combined 10 races took places apart from practice sessions in the 2 World Championship and 2 addition European Championship classes. The full schedule left the fans plenty of action to cheer for at what is one of the best motocross tracks in the world in not just riding terms but also as a spectator.
 
 
 
Yesterday’s MXGP Qualifying race put Team HRC’s Tim Gajser at the top of the standings yet when the gate dropped it was Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s AntonioCairoli who had the Fox Holeshot and lead.




Cairoli soon had the lead taken away by none other than the Slovenian. Gajser then put in a blistering pace to create a gap. Behind the former World Champions, it was at first Honda SR Motoblouz’s Jeremy Van Horebeek, but he was passed by Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP’s Gautier Paulin and then made a mistake which allowed Standing Construct KTM’s Ivo Monticelli and Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Clement Desalle through.



Behind Van Horebeek it was Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP’s Arnaud Tonusand now Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP’s Jeremy Seewer. 3 laps into the race Van Horebeek made it back past Monticelli and into the top 5.



Only a lap later Gajser took a violent high-speed crash while leading Cairoli but miraculously sprung back to his feet and rejoined the action on his damaged Honda in 3rdposition barely ahead of Desalle. Surprisingly Gajser wasted no time putting in more fast laps even as his broken front number plate dangled on the bent bars. Gajser instead of stopping or even slowing won over many fans as he pulled away from Desalle and closed in on Paulin.



British Standing Construct KTM rider Max Anstie made a hard charge to move from 12thinto 7thwhile Cairoli took the race win and Gajser took third behind Paulin.



Race 2 started in similar fashion when Cairoli took the holeshot and Gajser took the lead but this time Gajser’s gap was bigger. Paulin was the third veteran who found himself at the front but the rider in 4th was new Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing recruit Arminas Jasikonis who had Seewer giving chase.



Jasikonis’ teammate Jonass was 6thbefore being passed by Van Horebeek but then held 7thuntil fading 4 positions in the last 5 laps. The top five however never changed positions during the race. Cairoli made a late charge in an attempt to catch Gajser, but it was too late, and the Slovenian claimed the race 2 win 1.7 seconds ahead of the Sicilian and a massive 54 ahead of Paulin in third.



The overall win went to Cairoli for his 87thtime, who later revealed a shoulder injury but Gajser ride was remarkable when considering his rebound from the race 1 crash. Paulin’s 2-3 gave him third overall as Desalle took 4thand Van Horebeek placed 5thleaving the top five riders shuffled but unchanged since Patagonia.  The series will now head to Valkenswaard for the MXGP of the Netherlands next weekend.



Antonio Cairoli, “
It was a great weekend and this track is for sure one of my favorites but, today it was very difficult to push from the begging. I couldn’t really push because I am stiff on my right shoulder and neck which gave me arm pump right away. Hopefully I can be 100% again for the next race but overall I’m really happy, of course for the championship everything is going well and this is my goal.”



Tim Gajser,
“Today was a special day for me and I’m really happy to finish on the podium. The first race I had a good start I was behind Tony and managed to pass him quickly but made a little gap then I made a mistake … thankfully I could continue. I was really happy to win the second race and I’m looking forward to next weekend. We can see that we are going to the right direction so we will continue pushing hard with the team and everybody I’m just happy that the pace and everything is finally back.”



Gautier Paulin,
“It’s been a great weekend, it always is when we’re on the box. We improved a lot compared to Argentina, we will keep working very hard and I’m really happy with the Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha MXGP team.”
