Round 2 of the FIM MXGPs from Valkenswaard, Netherlands was an all orange show. In the MX1 (450cc) class the KTM backed machines of Antonio Cairoli and Max Nagl took home the top two spots while down in the MX2 (250cc) class the KTM duo of Jeffrey Herlings and Ken Roczen were un-matched all day. So let's get over to the lap charts, brought to you by Motion Pro, to see how it all broke down.

After a horrid start to the 2011 season in Bulgaria Antonio "Wholly" Cairoli rebounded in a big way taking the overall in Valkenswaard with a (1-2) score. Cairoli injured his knee in Bulgaria but that did not seem to affect the defending World Champion as he set the fastest lap of the day in both motos. With the series taking a few weeks off before the Grand Prix at Glen Helen expect Cairoli to be near 100 percent by then.

The Dutch native and bonafida sand superstar Jeffrey Herlings once again proved he is nearly unstoppable on his home track. Setting the track ablaze Herlings set the fastest lap of the day in both motos, did we mention they were fastest "overall" laps of the day.

Fellow KTM companion Ken Roczen was also on the gas in Valkenswaard, but had little chance of stopping the KTM bulldozer, Herlings, on his home soil. But Roczen did manage to set the second fastest lap in both motos en route to a second place finish on the day.
