Valkenswaard update #2

Qualifying done and dusted and the usual suspects have come out on top, and both of them are KTM riders. No prizes for guessing it’s the factory Red Bull KTM riders Antonio Cairoli and Jeffery Herlings that top the MX1 and MX2 classes respectively, looking every bit the real deal. Everyone has a Herlings as a shoe in for the win this weekend but there’s more significance in Cairoli’s race performance. Last year he came into the season injured and still won the title, this year he looks strong, arguably as strong as he ever has.

As for the British (and British based riders) it was a good showing, particularly in the MX2 class. Jake Nicholls led most of the race before eventually dropping back just outside the top three to finish fourth behind Tommy Searle. Max Anstie had a steady and pretty uneventful ride to finish sixth. Next Brit was Mel Pocock who put in a solid ride filling in for his missing teammates Zach Osborne and Arnaud Tonus crossing the line in 13th even after small crash. Jordan Booker rounded out the top 20 but Elliott Banks Browne didn’t. He had a nightmare with a mechanical breakdown on the last lap.

Top British rider in the MX was Shaun Simpson in 13th. Martin Barr was next up in 27th with Alfie Smith tucked in just behind in 28th. Nathan Parker rounded out the top 20. It was a contract between the two British based KTM riders Kevin Strijbos and Matiss Karro. The pair of them have been battling it out at the sharp end of the ACU Maxxis British championship but not here. Strijbos ran near the front as high as second and eventually came home fifth where as Karro  was his usually all action style at the start of the race but went missing early on registering 11 laps behind the leader finishing in 37th. Nico Aubin was 24th while Marc DeReuver didn’t even start the race after coughing up blood in practice and suffering a bad back following a mid week practice crash.
