Jeffrey Herlings continues to rule MX2 at Matterley Basin
11th Rd. Motocross 2016 – Matterley Basin, Winchester (GBR)

MX2
Riding with a bruised heel from an injury in the Dutch Nationals last weekend, Jeffrey Herlings managed to put aside the pain and deliver two near perfect motos with his KTM 250 SX-F on the wide but challenging British track. Even though he had a difficult qualifying on Saturday, when it came to race day, he never looked threatened.

Herlings said on the morning of the races he was experiencing so much pain that he didn’t dream of such a good outcome. “But we managed to do it and turn a negative weekend into a very good one. We leave here with almost a 150-point lead and its looking very good and very steady. There’s seven rounds to go and three are in the sand, so I am looking forward to my home GPs like in Lommel and Assen.” Herlings is widely considered the finest rider in sand.

The Dutch rider, who was plagued with injury in the past two seasons, has only dropped three points since the opening round in Qatar and now has a commanding 148-lead. Dylan Ferrandis of France was overall second and Herlings’ factory teammate Pauls Jonass was overall third with a 4-3 result.

Jonass: “After yesterday’s qualifying race when we had so much bad luck I don’t think anyone thought I could be on the podium, I had the 24th gate pick so was not the best start position but still in the first race I managed to lead some laps from the start after I made a pass at the second corner. I started to ride a bit tight and Jeffrey and Ferrandis passed me. Then with three corners to go on the last lap I over-jumped and Jeremy (Seewer) went by, I got a pretty decent start in the second race and moved up to second quite quickly. Then Dylan (Ferrandis) passed me. Maybe I didn’t ride the best lines and didn’t get the best flow but I finished third. Its not so bad to be back on the podium.”

Davy Pootjes rejoined the factory team lineup after an injury lay-off and managed to finish 16th in the opening moto, but registered a DNF in the second. Pootjes said he was quite happy with his comeback but had to find his rhythm again. “I had some problems with arm pump but I just need to feel at home on the track and that’s the most important thing at the moment.”

KTM Factory Racing Team Manager Dirk Gruebel said the start of the weekend had been difficult because of Herlings’ injury. “He was riding stiff yesterday and really cautious but he was already much better this morning. But when its race time, its typical Jeffrey Herlings. He had two solid races, and was twice first for his 11th win of the season, so he was outstanding. The surprise was Pauls – a negative one in the first race because he lost some positions in the last lap. But in the second we really fired him up and gave him a different briefing on how he should handle the pressure. He got is reward because he was back on the podium.” Gruebel said it was something of a rough return to racing for Pootjes, commenting that his riding was okay but he was prone to arm pump through lack of fitness and less riding because of his recent broken collarbone.

MXGP
Despite a strong first moto and a second place finish for the factory team’s Tony Cairoli on the KTM 450 SX-F, it turned out to be a difficult day for the two MXGP riders. By the time they were set to race their second moto, rain descended on the British circuit cutting visibility and throwing up nasty roost as track conditions deteriorated at the end of a busy race weekend. At the end of the day Cairoli had salvaged overall sixth after a 10th place finish in the second moto. Teammate Glenn Coldenhoff finished 10-15 for overall 12th and in the last stages of the second moto had to return to the pits for new goggles.

Cairoli: “This was another weekend with ups and downs. The first moto was very good and I came from fourth to second. Then there was some bad reaction on the start and Bobryshev came all the way over to my side and closed me out, but that’s normal, that’s racing. I came back very good and was back in the top 10 but then I cased the big quad jump, my wrist was very painful and I had to slow down for two laps. My wrist was beginning to swell but I kept riding because I need the points. Hopefully it is not too bad and we try to recover for Mantova because that’s my home GP."

RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING'S MARVIN MUSQUIN SCORES HIS FIRST-CAREER 450 CLASS PODIUM
4th Rd. Pro Motocross 2016 – High Point, PA (USA)

Following heavy rainfall throughout the day on Friday, the High Point Motocross track was on the muddy side for the morning’s qualifying sessions. Marvin Musquin prevailed through the conditions aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to qualify 3rd overall for the day.

Moto 1
In 450 Class Moto 1, Musquin got a good jump off the start to put himself into 4th on the opening lap. The 450 Class Rookie wasted no time pushing ahead as he climbed his way into 2nd place by lap three, passing Jason Anderson and Eli Tomac along the way.

From there, Musquin put his head down and charged toward the leader of Ken Roczen. Musquin held strong for 17 laps of racing to finish 2nd place behind Roczen in Moto 1.

“High Point is a really nice track, it’s really technical and rough. I won twice here on the 250 so I was really excited to come here on the 450,” Musquin said.

RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING'S RYAN DUNGEY CAPTURES 2ND OVERALL AT THUNDER VALLEY MX NATIONAL
3rd Rd. Pro Motocross 2016 – Thunder Valley, CO (USA)


Moto 1
In Moto 1, Ryan Dungey got off to a decent start aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, where he tucked into the 3rd place position behind Jason Anderson on lap one. By lap three Dungey had made his way around Anderson for 2nd, where he went to work on catching Ken Roczen for the lead position. Dungey maintained his position for the remainder of the race, where he finished 2nd.

Marvin Musquin didn’t get off to a great start, but the Frenchman immediately began pushing hard on the opening lap. However, Musquin mistakenly went off the track and became entangled in a banner, thus losing substantial time. After remounting, Musquin would crash again, causing him to ultimately 37th in Moto 1.

Moto 2
In Moto 2, Dungey grabbed another good start and made his way into the lead battle on the opening lap. While making an attempt to pass into the lead, Dungey got caught in a rut and went down, sending him all the way back to 19th place heading into lap two.

Dungey quickly recollected himself and made a charge toward the front, catching his teammate Musquin in the 7th place position by lap five. From there, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing duo pushed their way into the top five, where Dungey ultimately finished 4th and Musquin in 5th.

“The ruts are really tough in Colorado, I was just trying to focus on good lines and making them stick. In the second moto I was trying to make a pass for the lead and my front end caught a little rut on the hip jump and it kicked and sent me in the air,” Dungey said. “Trying to rebound from that, thankfully we could get up and make a charge to pass as many guys as we could and salvage 2nd overall for the day.”

Dungey’s 2-4 moto scores were good enough to capture 2nd overall for the day, where he holds 2nd place in the 450 Class Championship standings.

Despite a tough experience in Moto 1, Musquin rebounded well to finish a solid 5th place in Moto 2, his best of the season.

KTM’S CODY WEBB AND ALFREDO GOMEZ FINISH 2-3 IN EPIC RED BULL HARE SCRAMBLE 2016
Erzbergrodeo XXII – Eisenerz (AUT)

Jarvis was however in a class of his own, taking his third victory by more than 30-minutes to equal Red Bull KTM factory rider Jonny Walker’s three wins at Erzberg. Walker was unable to compete because he is still recovering from injury but said in the finish area: “Graham did a faultless race.” Alfredo Gomez was heading for second place with the new KTM 300 EXC MY17 going into the last big challenge but needed multiple attempts to get to the summit before the final run to the line.

Webb appeared to have a crisis moment going through the incredibly difficult Karl’s Dinner rock section and commented later: “It was so rough. I knew I just had to survive. I was able to keep Alfredo in my sights. Then the last climb was so difficult I didn’t think we were going to make it. Luckily I was able to pass Alfredo. This is such a surreal feeling and I’m just so glad KTM gave me the opportunity to come over here.”

It was an eventful day for Gomez, who was a joint winner in 2015. He started strongly in the top five and even led the race at one of the early stages. Then he crashed hard and broke his backpack, including his supply of rehydration drink. By the time he reached the final big climb he said he was extremely tired. “I tried to find the right line, but it was impossible. I tried in third and second gear and I needed many times to do it. But the bike was good and I am happy to be on the podium.”

Spanish rider Mario Roman gained two places on the slope to finish fourth ahead of UK KTM rider Billy Bolt and South African Wade Young, both clearly the next generation of Hard Enduro riders.

In fact Bolt was one of the big stories of the 2016 edition. A new talent in the racing stable of manager Julian Stephens, he qualified at 51st on the second row and was fourth about 45 minutes from the end. But he lost the chain on his bike and had to do some emergency repairs. When he got to the final climb he flew past two riders to finish fifth in his debut Hare Scramble.

Bolt: “Julian told me after ‘Dynamite’ that the others were struggling at ‘Lazy Noon’. He said I should attack here and make sure I get up the hill. That went well and I got past Wayne and Taddy and I’m delighted to get to the finish line.”

Young, Paul Bolton and five-times winner Taddy Blazusiak finished 6-8. Blazusiak, the most winning rider at the Erzbergrodeo with five victories to his name, dropped down the order after damaging a brake lever about half way through the race. Then he broke the clutch lever. He soldiered on but had particular difficulty on the last climb, which required all his skills to make it to the top without a clutch lever. KTM rider Philipp Scholz finished ninth.

POSITIVE WEEKEND FOR KTM ENDURO FACTORY RACING RIDERS AT GP OF GREECE
5th/6th Rd. Enduro 2016 – Grevena (GRE)

Day 1
Heavy rain at the venue on Saturday made the going tough but the factory team’s rookie British rider Nathan Watson finished 14 seconds behind new overall EnduroGP class winner Eero Remes, while third went to Matthew Phillips, the overall leader.

Remes and Watson were also 1-2 in the Enduro 1 class on the opening day. Watson was an early leader on the very slippery track with his new KTM 250 EXC-F but Remes prevailed in the day’s final lap. Watson’s KTM teammate Ivan Cervantes was third in the class although finished some 2.5 minutes behind the leaders.

The team’s American rider Taylor Robert was the fastest in special test times in the E2 class on the KTM 350 EXC-F but a time keeping error cost him a 60-second penalty and he was bumped down the third. This left the two top spots to Phillips and Loic Larrieu.

Day 2
Robert had another strong day on Sunday where rain held off but residual mud from the downpour the previous day meant conditions were still difficult. With a second place in E2, the American was very close to claiming the class win. Watson, whose weekend earned him a 2-2 result in E1, has made a very strong transition from Motocross to Enduro in just three, two-stage rounds. It was also a step in the right direction for the team veteran Cervantes who finished with a 3-4 in E1. Unfortunately the team was without the services of French rider Christophe Nambotin who is still recovering from an early season injury.

Nathan Watson excels in tough Swedish Enduro weekend to first-career win in E1
9th/10th Rd. Enduro 2016 – Enkoping (SWE)
E1
Despite terrible weather and eight-hour-long days on the bike, Nathan Watson took his first victory in E1 with a 2-1 score on his new KTM 250 EXC-F for the two days of tough racing in the Swedish forest and is now second in the championship points.

Watson: “The weather was horrendous on the first day, so before the day started I knew it was going to be a really difficult race. And it was. I felt like I rode pretty well but I crashed in the second Motocross test and got stuck underneath my bike and lost 35 seconds. I was really annoyed with that because I ended the day just 15 seconds behind Remes. Day two was hard work but despite a pretty big crash in the log section in the Enduro test I managed to get my first Enduro 1 class win. Winning has certainly made the tough weekend worthwhile.”

Ivan Cervantes, who partners Watson in the E1 class this season, picked up an 8-4 score for the two stages to be just off the podium in fourth place.

Cervantes: “It’s amazing how different the two days were here in Sweden. Like a lot of riders I struggled on day one – I had a lot of crashes because I wanted to better and better. I was looking for a fifth place result but I crashed in the last two special tests. I lost all the work I did during the day. I started the second day with a different suspension set-up, and enjoyed the conditions more. I was really focused on getting a podium result but I just missed it, by only one second. I’m happy with my performance on day two.”

E2
Taylor Robert, the team’s American recruit also had a solid weekend, taking a 2-2 for overall second in the E2 class with the KTM 350 EXC-F but admitted the going had been tough for him in conditions that are very different to what he is used to.

Robert: “It seems like each race this season is harder than the one before it, which is unbelievable. Finland was incredibly tough yet this event in Sweden was even harder – the conditions were really, really brutal in places. The first day was almost like just surviving – the rocks, tree roots and mud were so challenging. I feel like every rider hit the ground a lot this weekend. I got off to a better start on day two but annoyingly still made some pretty big mistakes. But all-in-all I’m pretty happy to have come away with two runner-up results in Enduro 2.”

Beginning to recover form after the hand injury he picked up in the opening round in Morocco, factory rider Christophe Nambotin wrapped up his weekend in overall sixth.

Nambotin: “Things are getting better and better. Last week in Finland was really hard for me. I really struggled to find a good feeling simply because I’d not ridden much due to injury. We did some testing after the race and found some good suspension settings and I got a much better feeling. This weekend things were better for me. Although it was a tough weekend I feel like I’m moving in the right direction with things. I had one crash on the first day but apart from that things went well. I had three crashes on the second day, so I’m disappointed about that. They weren’t big crashes but I lost time. Physically I still have to get stronger. But it will get better.”

In the theoretical new EnduroGP class Watson was fourth, Taylor sixth, Nambotin eleventh and Cervantes 16th.

JEFFREY HERLINGS STRIKES AGAIN WITH 1-1 IN MX2
9th Rd. Motocross 2016 – Talavera de la Reina (ESP)

MX2
Jeffrey Herlings had quite strong starts on the KTM 250 SX-F but had to chase down French rider Dylan Ferrandis in the opening laps of his two races. “I managed to overtake Ferrandis quite quickly and did what I had to do to win the moto. I pulled a pretty good start in the second moto and was top five and managed to come out on top again.” When asked if Ferrandis might give him some problems next weekend at the French races, Herlings said: “I know what to expect.”

Pauls Jonass said he had enjoyed his weekend racing and was happy with his result. “I had good battles with Paturel in the first race and with Seewer in the second, right up to the first half of the last lap when he made a mistake. I really enjoyed the races and I’m looking forward to the next GP. We need to ride a bit more on hard pack this week and physically I am quite okay.”

MXGP
It was a difficult weekend for Tony Cairoli in the MXGP class who had his share of bad luck and came away with a 5-9 moto result for overall seventh. The Italian, who had made a strong comeback from injury problems in the last three rounds on the KTM 450 SX-F said where he normally likes the Spanish track, he didn’t feel comfortable right from Saturday’s qualification race. “It was a little muddy yesterday and it’s a long time since I rode in the mud so I wasn’t feeling 100%, but I managed to come back to sixth place in qualifying, so I was happy with that, and also my speed was okay.”

Cairoli got a good start in the first moto but had some arm pump problems and said he was riding tight and was not content with his fifth place. Then things went wrong for him in the second moto. “The gate stayed up a little long and I lost concentration, I made a bit of a false start and when it came down I was last.” He still managed to move up through the pack to seventh place in the first 3-4 laps, but while trying to overtake another rider he hit some mud and went over the handlebars. “I crashed pretty hard and I had some pain in my neck and shoulders so it as a difficult race. But we will move on. From now on I will try to win races and be up front.”

RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING'S RYAN DUNGEY WINS GLEN HELEN NATIONAL
2nd Rd. Pro Motocross 2016 – Glen Helen, CA (USA)

Moto 1
Ryan Dungey got off to a great start in Moto 1 as he assumed the early lead in the race. The reigning 450 Class Champion led the first eight laps of the race until Roczen made a pass for the lead just after the halfway point.

However, with a hard-charging Dungey in tow, Roczen succumbed to a bike issue with only a few laps left to go. From there, Dungey capitalized on Roczen’s situation in order to overtake the lead and finish strong to capture the Moto 1 victory.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION off the start to begin the race inside the top five. Musquin passed his way up to 3rd where he remained for a few laps before dropping back a few positions. Musquin continued to fight for a top-five position throughout the entire race where he ended up crashing on the final lap in the “Supercross section” of the track. The 450 Class Rookie rebounded as quickly as possible to salvage 9th place in Moto 1.

Moto 2
In Moto 2, Dungey was quick off the line as he rode nearly side-by-side with Roczen through the first turn. Dungey got the early advantage but it was Roczen who overtook the lead on the opening lap. Dungey was able to make gains on the leader of Roczen several times throughout the 15-lap race but ultimately wasn’t able to make any advances.

With a win behind him heading into Moto 2, Dungey was able to secure the overall victory with 1-2 moto finishes, while Roczen ended the day in 2nd overall with 4-1 moto scores.

BOBBITT WINS AMA NATIONAL ENDURO ROUND FOUR

FMF/KTM’s Russell Bobbitt grabbed his first win of the season this weekend at the Boyesen 2-Stroke Revolution Cherokee National Enduro in Greensboro, Georgia – round four of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series.

After three-straight runner-up finishes, Bobbitt, who is coming off of a shoulder separation just three weeks ago, finally put a clean race together and wound up dominating the Georgia event, winning four of the six tests and finishing the race with a minute and a half cushion over runner-up Steward Baylor.

On Saturday, the threat of rain loomed over the event, and left most of the nearly 500 riders expecting a muddy race. However, most of the bad weather missed the Greensboro area, dropping just enough moisture to leave the course with incredible conditions.

“The conditions were epic,” said Bobbitt. “Everyone was scared it was going to be a mud fest, but it was perfect. I felt confident with the conditions, and I was feeling good on the bike.

“I just missed winning the first test by a second or two and then I won the next four. The last test, I missed winning it by just a second, so I was on my game. I didn’t have any tip-overs or stalls, so it was a nearly perfect day.”

The win moved Bobbitt into the series points lead, 11 points ahead of Steward Baylor.

Results - AMA National Enduro Championship, Round 4
1. Russell Bobbitt (KTM)
2. Steward Baylor (KTM)

RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING'S RYAN DUNGEY RIDES TO IMPRESSIVE 2ND OVERALL FINISH AT HANGTOWN MX NATIONAL
1st Rd. Pro Motocross 2016 – Hangtown, CA (USA)

With only one weekend off between the AMA Supercross finale and the opening round of American Motocross, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team switched gears with new bike set-up and much different track conditions outdoors.

Moto 1
In Moto 1, Ryan Dungey powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION into a top three position off the start, where he quickly jumped into 2nd place behind Ken Roczen on lap two. His teammate, Marvin Musquin, got a great jump off the start to begin the race inside the top five.

With consistently fast lap times, Dungey chased Roczen down for the lead position throughout the entire 34-minute race but it wasn’t enough to close the gap that Roczen created right off the start.

Meanwhile, Musquin dropped back a few positions to ultimately finish 9th place in Moto 1.

Moto 2
In Moto 2, Dungey shot off the line to capture the holeshot but Roczen got around him to take over the early lead on lap one. From there, Dungey put forth a hard-fought effort to catch Roczen out front, where he came within a seconds of the leader at times. Despite a valiant effort, Dungey finished 2nd place in Moto 2, where he secured 2nd overall for the day.

“It was overall a really good way to begin the season,” Dungey said. “We want to win for sure but overall we’re just getting things started in outdoors, adapting to the bike and keeping the comfort from Supercross flowing into this summer. The speed was there, everything was there, and I trust the boys at KTM to keep advancing the bike and I’ll do the work on my side to get there.”

Musquin began Moto 2 outside the top ten but the 450 Class Rookie set his sights on moving through the pack. Musquin made a few passes to reach the 7th place position where set his sights on Justin Barcia in 6th. As the race wore on, Musquin was able to close the gap on Barcia but he wasn’t able to climb into another position before the checkered flag flew.

With moto scores of 9-7, Musquin secured 8th overall at the season opener.

“The first moto didn't go as I wanted but we worked between the motos with the team and came out with good changes," Musquin said. "I'm happy to finally race my first AMA 450 outdoor race and can't wait to go to the next one! I know the season will be long and I want to keep improving."
