The heavy title favorites for the 2012 Monster Energy FIM World Championships, defending MX1 champion Tony Cairoli and MX2 pilot Jeffrey Herlings, led the way in Sunday qualifying for tomorrow's opening round of the series in Valkenswaard, Holland. KTM-mounted Cairoli topped French Yamaha rider Steven Frossard and Belgian Suzuki rider Clement Desalle on the rough sand track, which will host the actual Grand Prix tomorrow -- a rare Monday race due to today's Easter holiday.

In the MX2 class the local superstar Herlings was nearly three seconds faster than runner-up Jeremy Van Horebeek and third-place Tommy Searle on their fastest laps of the race,  winning by 25 seconds in front of the partisan fans.
