A weekend to remember for the Sicilian champion of the Team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing. He gains the top step of the podium by winning both races , fighting on the track, turn after turn, against opponents who have given all their energies trying to passing him.
Cairoli has finally found the extra plus that distinguishes the true champion and that allowed him to race and win everything during these two days of the 7° round of the MXGP.
On Saturday he dominated the qualifying race, leaving no chance to anyone and during both races of Sunday he sent a clear message to everyone: "I'm back."
Race # 1 and # 2 were two beautiful rides, during which we have all witnessed his huge desire to give a great show, filled with adrenaline and emotions. Not even the multiple and consistent attacks conducted by Tim Gajser stopped the ride of Cairoli. The  Slovenian tried for several times to pass him but, despite his age and the advantage to ride without pression, typical of who runs with nothing to lose, he could not do anything against the eager power of Antonio.
TC222 is back and, as he stated during the press conference after the race, finally his feeling with the bike is tuned with his desire of victory.

Two difficult days for Glenn Coldenhoff, even if he demonstrated his determination and skill in defending his position. Teutschenthal is a tough track, a circuit that doesn’t permit mistakes, especially if you have to recover fighting in the middle of the race.
He finished 16 ° and 10 ° and he gained precious points which enable him to maintain a position in the Top Ten of the Championship.

Finally a special Grand Prix for Henry Jacobi. Here in Teutschenthal, on the home track, in front of his fans, the German guy found the way to express himself. In Race #1 he crosses the finish line in 12° position. 17° in Race #2, after a thrilling recovery. He ended the day with a 14° position in the overall and the belief that he can do better!

Nick Kouwenberg 
A lackluster day for the defending European champion. In the first race the Dutchman had to settle with a 9° place, while in Race #2 his comeback has been stopped by two crashes that relegate him at 15° position.
Nicholas Adams
The South African in the first heat, after a good start, can not keep the position and ends 12°. In Race #2 he gets overtaking, till the 14° position after a pressing comeback.
Filippo Zonta
A weekend to forget for the young Venetian rider. After a qualification gained racing the LCQ, maybe he paid the tiredness and he finished Race #1 27°. Unlucky in Race #2, where he was forced to retire in the early laps because of a technical problem caused by a fall.
