Everts goes to 100

Stefan Everts of the Rinaldi Yamaha team has added Grand Prix victory number 100 to his already impressive career tally. With 33,135 spectators gathering to watch the hardest GP of the term so far for the MX1 and MX2 riders. The penultimate round of the year was run under dark clouds that dispensed rain all day long over the Lierop circuit. The sand quickly cut into a path of bumps, ruts and heavy, rough sections that tested the machines as much as the endurance and fitness of the riders. Second in the MX1 was Josh Coppins of the CAS Honda team and third place Suzuki factory rider Steve Ramon.

"There is not much left to win now, maybe just the Motocross of Nations! This has been a tough little period for me. Mentally I have been a bit 'done' and physically it has been hard. Last week was a hard race; Josh said that the riders can learn from me physically but he was very strong in Ireland also so he is right there also. Anyway, it has been a long way to this 100th GP win. I started in 1989 and now we are in 2006, so that is eighteen years to try and win 100 GPs; it has been a long road. Counting from one to ten in terms of titles can take some time, but one to one hundred is something else. I am so, so happy, thanks to everyone who has supported me."
 
MX2 series leader and one of the hottest riders to enter the GP series in many years Christophe Pourcel of the GPKR Kawasaki team won the MX2 class in Lierop and in doing so goes to the final round in Ernee, France with a handy 28 point lead in the championship. Second to Pourcel was De Carli Yamaha rider Antonio Cairoli and third place was Tyla Rattray of the CHAMP KTM team.
 
"In the opening race I was not so happy, as I didn’t found my lines and my rythmth. I wasn’t used to race with “roll-off” on the goggles, and it was a little bit strange to have a narrow vision. I made many unusual mistakes but I ended third and lost only a few points over Cairoli. I didn’t want to change any settings on the bike between the races, even if the track was more bumpy, as it was perfect on Saturday. I can’t really explain how I came to the lead in the second race, I passed a couple of guys easily and then built a five seconds gap over the pack. Then everything went perfect, I came faster in the waves and it’s much easier with the speed! Rattray came close after thirty minutes but I had the race under control; he spent a lot of energy to come back close to me, but did a small mistake just when I pushed harder. I wasn’t tired at all, and secured my win. I have now an advantage of twenty-eight point over Cairoli and there are only two more heats, it’s good to have a “joker” for me."
