Pro Circuit Racing Around the GlobeThursday, May 17, 2012 | 2:25 PM
Pro Circuit’s Tommy Searle grabbed another overall podium finish this past weekend at the GP of Mexico in Guadalajara for the fourth round of the 2012 FIM World Motocross Championship. With a second-place finish in both moto one and moto two, he finished second overall in MX2. Teammate Joel Roelants finished sixth in moto one and fourth in moto two, putting him fourth overall in MX2. Christophe Pourcel was coming off an MX1 overall win at the GP of Italy, but wasn’t faced with the same fortune in Mexico. A 13th in moto one paired with a fourth in moto two gave him tenth overall in MX1. Sebastien Pourcel suffered a similar fate by finishing thirteenth in moto one and fourteenth in moto two, putting him fourteenth overall in MX2.
Pro Circuit riders now make their way to the GP of Brazil in Beto Carrero for the fifth round of the 2012 FIM World Motocross Championship Series, which will be held this Sunday May 20. Searle and Roelants sit third and fourth, respectively, in MX2 point standings. Christophe Pourcel heads to Brazil fifth overall in MX1, while Sebastien Pourcel sits 18th overall in the same class. Good luck to all Pro Circuit riders!
