Recap: ICYMI This Week

Catch up on features and news.

Now that the season has fired into life, it is easy to skip past or miss a certain piece of information. This new MX Vice feature will combat that problem, however, as we will run through some of the highlights from the previous week to ensure that you are caught up.

Dissected: Brian Bogers

Brian Bogers has been discussed frequently this off-season. Firstly, in a rather controversial move, he signed for the HRC outfit and replaced Evgeny Bobryshev. The move sparked debate, as Bogers is obviously an unknown quantity on a 450F, so he is eager to prove himself to the naysayers. It is likely that his maiden term will be rather difficult now though, following a practice crash that left him with a shattered foot. We got in touch with Bogers to discuss his new team, injury and what it is like to read negative comments from fans. There are plenty of interesting titbits buried in the feature.

New Deal: Evgeny Bobryshev

Viewpoint: Evgeny Bobryshev

Evgeny Bobryshev has finally secured a ride in the FIM Motocross World Championship. Fans across the globe are breathing a sigh of relief, as the former Grand Prix winner will add a lot to the competitive MXGP division. After Benoit Paturel, who now has no deal, parted ways with the BOS GP team, Bobryshev got in touch with the all-new team and struck up a deal. Bobryshev spoke to us exclusively about the move, as well as the fact that HRC contacted him to fill-in for Brian Bogers, on the second link above. It is certainly going to be a hectic year for the RM-Z450 pilot.

Cancelled: MXGP of Sweden

The FIM Motocross World Championship calendar has been updated once again. The Grand Prix of Sweden, which was supposed to be held in August, has been cancelled due to last-minute changes. What were those exactly? It seems as though an issue in Uddevalla left the promoters will no choice but to pull the plug. It is a great shame, as Uddevalla was one of the most historic circuits on the calendar, but there was simply no way around the issue. The calendar now consists of nineteen rounds and can be viewed on the link above. What event are you hoping to hit up?

Injury Update: Kevin Strijbos

Injury Update: Valentin Guillod

Standing Construct KTM have really had an awful week. There is simply no other way to look at it. Kevin Strijbos broke his collarbone on Thursday, firstly, and is now questionable for the opening round, which will be held on the first weekend in March. Just twenty-four hours later, Valentin Guillod crashed at RedSand and broke his leg. The team may end up with no riders at the Grand Prix of Patagonia-Argentina. Further details have not yet been released, so stay tuned to MX Vice for more on the injuries that the riders sustained. Who knows, the team may even end up with a fill-in guy.

A Matthes Report: Houston

Steve Matthes always brings brilliant insight to MX Vice. Matthes, our correspondent in the United States, filed his column from Houston earlier this week and packed plenty of interesting thoughts into it. Did Ken Roczen get tired in the main event? Will any of the heavy hitters return at Anaheim 2 this weekend? Will Justin Barcia get his deal with Monster Energy Knich Yamaha Factory Racing extended? All of that is included on the link above, as well as some thoughts on the triple crown format that will be put into place at Angel Stadium this weekend. By the way, you can watch practice from Anaheim 2 live on MX Vice.

Federico Tuani comes close to scoring points in Trentino Europe

Federico Tuani of the AIT Racing team came close to score points in the fourth round of the MX2 World Championship in Arco di Trento. Tuani finished twenty-first in the first moto and rode inside the top fifteen for a long time in the second moto until his chain broke and he was forced to retire.

Tuani did not get off to a good start in the first heat, but the riding went well and he also managed to set good lap times. In the end he fell just short of scoring a point and finished twenty-first.

After a good start in the second heat, he was riding in thirteenth position in the beginning. He managed to stay in the top fifteen until the middle of the race, but then fatigue started to set in. Tuani persevered but eventually had to leave the race due to a broken chain.

In qualifying for the EMX250 class, Xavier Cazal was unable to find his rhythm. He tried several times to put a fast lap together but despite his efforts he could not get further than a twenty-first time. This meant that he was a reserve for the heats. Unfortunately he was not allowed to participate in the first heat, but this was the case in the second heat. Cazal managed to cross the finish line in twenty-sixth place in the second moto.

There was also a large turnout in the EMX125 class. Venicslav Toshev managed to set a twenty-seventh time in his group, which was not enough for qualification. Despite this disappointment, Toshev stays positive and he will again strive to achieve a good result in Markelo this Sunday.

This Sunday, several riders from the AIT Racing team will compete in the final of the Dutch Masters of Motocross in Markelo.
