The FIM Motocross World Championship carries momentum into the 11th round of the series this weekend with the Liqui Moly MXGP of Germany in Teutschenthal
After three races off the podium, Tim Gajser was back on top at the German MXGP with an almost perfect weekend until Jeremy Seewer ended Gajser’s hopes of a 1-1 in the final moto! Gajser won the qualifier and then ran away with race one looking supreme after a holeshot and pulling away from Pauls Jonass and the aforementioned Seewer.
But the title drama was behind him. Vialle won race one holding off a determined Geerts right at the end after the Belgian spent the first half of the race finding a way by his teammate Benistant. Then in race two, with Benistant making an early pass for the lead, it was Vialle second with Geerts third, the top three all equi-distant apart to the tune of a couple of seconds. Then with Geerts still charging behind him, Vialle came to a surprising halt at the top of a hill and despite his efforts to restart the machine rolling down the drop-off, the KTM would not fire and a costly DNF resulted in Vialle losing the lead in the championship!
