Even though there is a break in the MXGP schedule there’s still plenty of racing taking place this weekend.
The British Championship heads to Hawkstone for round four of the series. With Jake Nicholls picking up an injury the MX1 class is starting to hot up as only two points separate championship leader, Steven Lenoir and Graeme Irwin. Gert Krestinov is starting to build momentum as he won the last round and is now only nine points behind Lenoir in the chase for the championship.
In the MX2 class only three points separate Ben Watson and Harri Kullas with Martin Barr back in third on the same number of points as Mel Pocock!
Over in Holland lot’s of GP and EMX riders will be participating at the third round of the Dutch Masters, you can see the stacked entry list here. Even though Herlings had been struggling at the start of the season he still has two points over Paulin in the championship race, you would expect Herlings to assert his authority in the series now as he’s much more confident.
Brian Bogers who hasn’t been riding well in the GP’s hasn’t had the same problems in the Dutch sand as he holds the red plate and has four points over Thomas Kjer Olsen who won his first MX2 GP overall in Latvia. Calvin Vlaanderen is knocking on the door as he’s only one points behind the Dane and landed himself a third overall in Latvia for his career best GP.
The third round of the ADAC MX Masters takes place this weekend and Dennis Ullrich looks to have the championship under control. He has a nice twenty-one points gap over round one winner Jens Getteman but the season is still early and anything can happen.
In the ADAC MX Masters Cup, three points separate three riders in the series so it couldn’t be any closer! However, Sihvonen who has the red plate is a massive doubt for the race due to a shoulder injury and Zach Pichon is definitely ruled out after breaking his collarbone in Latvia. This leaves the door wide open but the winner of the second round, Richard Sikyna should fancy grabbing hold of the red plate this weekend.
Last but not least the third round of the Italian Championship takes place this weekend. In the MX1 class Alessandro Lupino looks to be in control as he leads the series from Matteo Bonini and David Philippaerts.
Things are more interesting in the MX2 class as Cervellin leads the way but has Ivo Monticelli and Simeone Furlotti are close for company.
