World MX: Cairoli wins, Coppins on podium at first Latvian GP


History was made today as the first edition of the Latvian MX1/MX2 Grand Prix took place at a hot Kegums where Cairoli and Goncalves wrapped up the overall wins in the MX1 and MX2 respectively.

With Cairoli continuing to build on his Championship lead courtesy of his fourth win, the MX1 podium was completed by youngster Desalle and Coppins.

In the MX2 class Musquin was second collecting as many points as overall winner Goncalves, now third in the Championship, while Paulin was third overall to remain second in the series.

Mats Nilsson won both heats at this penultimate round of the FIM Veterans’ World Cup to pull away in the points standings which he leads from yesterday’s win in heat one.


Despite taking the runner up spot in a breathtaking first heat, Yamaha Red Bull De Carli’s Cairoli showed he could be the man to beat and so it was in heat two, with the Italian wrapping up the fourth win of the season and 29th of his career.

Coming up through the pack after a bad start, Cairoli worked his way through the pack in moto one to reach the tail of leader Desalle, whom Cairoli tangled up with yesterday in the qualifying. The Italian started putting pressure on the Belgian and tried an impressive final lap attack to clock the lap record, though Desalle remained in first by 0.2 seconds. Cairoli struggled again at the start to the second heat but this time he managed to move past Desalle a lot earlier and take the eventual victory.

LS Motors Honda’s Desalle won his first career heat after a strong opening moto but a technical problem forced the youngster to end heat two in fifth after he held an early lead.

Moving up to second after a late charge in the final moto, Yamaha Monster Energy Motocross’ Coppins secured the overall podium with third. The Kiwi finished behind Nagl in moto one but the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing German struggled in heat two finishing a distant sixth and stopping a three podium row to take fourth overall in Latvia.

A disappointed Teka Suzuki WMX1’s De Dycker completed the top five with a first moto crash affecting the Latvian weekend of the sole rider remained in the team after Ramon’s injury in Valkenswaard.

Philippaerts, who was snatched the runner up spot in the Championship by Nagl, was sixth overall ahead of Aigar Leok while his cousin Tanel was 11th due to a dnf in heat one –after a crash the Estonian was not able to restart his Yamaha machine.

Lauris Freibergs left his home GP being the best Latvian on track courtesy of a 14th overall finish.

Taking his third season’s win and even the third position in the Championship Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Goncalves left Latvia with a confidence boost for the remainder of the 2009 season.

Yesterday’s poleman took two great starts but encountered mixed fortunes during the heats starting off with the opening moto, where he dropped down from first to fifth but a late charge gave the Portuguese the runner up spot at the chequered flag.
