March 6, 2016


The province of Suphanburi, Thai’s backcountry, hosted the second round of the World Motocross Championship MXGP 2016.

An intense hit, scored the two days, with temperature which reached almost 40 degrees, and has put a strain on the riders. Fortunately they had gained experience from the past edition of the ThaiMXGP and thanks to this, they came to Suphanburi stalwarted by a specific and dedicated training, focused on holding up the feverish temperature. The heat wave was so warm that it made difficult even a simple walk in the paddock.


Tony Cairoli
The shape of the Champion is coming back. The improvement of his physical condition is breathtaking and once again Tony confirms the stubborn determination which characterize who knows how to manage the resources and push at the right time. Wonderful Race 1. He fought since the first turn, and he won the holeshot taking the lead of the race. He decided not to force, leaving Febvre passing first during the last laps, after a thrilling fight against him.

Talking about bad luck, despite his nippy start at the gate of Race 2, a technical problem switched off of his bike, literally one meter far from the holeshot line. He ended at 16th place.

Glenn Coldenhoff
Difficult day for Dutchman Coldenhoff. In Race 1he “has been bottled up in the traffic” at the first turn, and in Race 2 he became the protagonist of a spectacular front overturning at the starting gate. He run both races starting from the back. Finished 15 ° and 19 °.

We wait him sparkling at the home GP in Valkenswaard.

Unlucky races for both JTech’s guys. In the first manche they get stuck between each other after the start. Graulus restarted last, with a substantial delay. Jacobi was forced to retire. In Race 2 another problem during the start, forced him to fight from 24à to 17° position.

Surely these first two overseas appointments will be of help and experience, and for the next GP they will be ready to face again the feisty opponents.
