MXGP takes to Trentino

03.04.2019: The 3rd of 3 back to back weekends of racing takes to Trentino, Italy for the 4th round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship this Saturday and Sunday! Set against the Dolomite Mountains of Italy the 2019 MXGP of Trentino will also host the first I

The 3rd of 3 back to back weekends of racing takes to Trentino, Italy for the 4th round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship this Saturday and Sunday! Set against the Dolomite Mountains of Italy the 2019 MXGP of Trentino will also host the first Italian round of three this season.



The beautiful Pietramurata venue is far from typical with its amazing location and surroundings. The circuit will be the first hard pack race of 2019 but with rain expected anything is possible. The Italian fans are expected in force as always and as some of the most passionate in the world the atmosphere created will be bar none.


This weekend’s addition classes of the FIM Europe Motocross Championship include the EMX250 category and EMX125 presented by FMF Racing. The EMX250 class lasrt raced in Great Britain where Maddii Racing Husqvarna’s Alberto Forato had a dominant 1-1 showing. Last weekend Forato was a wild card entry into MX2 where he scored an impressive 7thoverall. This weekend the Italian returns to the EMX250 class for the home round against 92 other entries into the class.



EMX125 presented by FMF Racing will also hold its second round in Trentino after the first take place last weekend in Valkenswaard. The category’s current points leader hails from the same Maddii Racing Husqvarna team as Forato, Mattia Guadagnini. The Italian will fight against 100 ultracompetitive entries for the second week in a row.
 
 
 
Continuing the home GP tradition is Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Antonio Cairoli as the MXGP points leader. Cairoli has won the Trentino GP 3 times of his 6 attempts and aside his worst result of 5th he has never finished off the podium. Though the Sicilian has seen much success here the home venue is not his favorite and with the packed schedule it will be interesting to see how he handles the weekend.


Team HRC’s Tim Gajser has been the fastest rider not to win this year and this is mostly due to his massive crashes at the past two rounds. Even so the Slovenian has a perfect podium record so far and with the added fans expected to make the trip across the Slovenian border Gajser is the other favorite for the win in Trentino this weekend. Gajser won the MX2 category here in 2015, reached the podium in 2016 and 2017 but finished 7th last year.



Standing Construct KTM’s Max Anstie is one to watch this weekend after leading laps in the Netherlands before a small but costly error set him back. The Brit had a top 5 result in Trentino during his 2015 MX2 campaign but with potential rain forecasted his years of British mud riding could help propel him to the podium for the first time this season.



Also worth considering is Belgium’s Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team rider Clement Desalle who took 2ndoverall last weekend and at this very GP last year. Desalle surprised even himself with the result in the Netherlands after injuring his hand one week prior. Winning the Trentino GP in 2014 and taking the past two wins on the MXGP of Russia’s similar soil don’t be surprised to see the “MX panda” back on the podium.


Belgian compatriot Jeremy van Horebeek from Honda SR Motoblouz made hard charges through the field in the Netherlands to tie in points for 3rd overall but finish 4th. Van Horebeek’s best Trentino result also comes from 2014 when he finished 2nd behind Desalle.


Additional Italian fans' favorites this week include Standing Construct KTM’s Ivo Monticelli and Gebben Van Venrooy Kawasaki’s Alessandro Lupino. Monticelli has looked like a new rider so far this year battling in the top ten and even proving to be a hard customer to pass in the battle for the top 5 last week.
