Clement Desalle: “Yesterday was a perfect day. I started second in the first moto but Frossard passed me and then in the first three or four laps I wasn’t riding so well. I had a big crash and hit my head on the ground, hurting my neck a little bit. I was really disappointed with that moto because I should have done much better and in the end I missed the overall win because of it. I had some physio before the second race and things went better. I concentrated on my riding and made some mistakes in the middle of the moto but when I saw ‘four laps’ on the pitboard I really focussed...

Team Suzuki Press Office – May 25.

Matterley Basin was again a stomping ground for Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MXGP and Clement Desalle this weekend as the Belgian threw his Factory RM-Z450 to second position overall – after a race two victory - in front of 25,000 spectators at the British Grand Prix and the eighth round of 17 in the FIM Motocross World Championship.

The Winchester venue had been liberally coated with rainfall in the build-up to the GP (shifted from its usual August slot to a Bank Holiday weekend date in late May) and was again hit by showers throughout Saturday to...

Kevin Strijbos 3rd in Spain!  /  May.13.2014

Kevin Strijbos:

“It was a good day. I had a bad start in the first moto but I could push all the way and passed Tony and Bobby and I was happy with fourth. I had the holeshot in the second moto but ran a bit wide and came out second. The race was not so easy, very warm and I was tired out there. We are all doing our best and our work is paying off. I thought the track was good. It was old-school with the layout and nice to ride. I think they put a bit too much water in the morning and maybe it should have been lesser and more frequent. We made a small change on the bike before the second...

Clement Desalle:

“This weekend started out as difficult because when I woke up yesterday I had a really bad stomach problem, and I had never really felt that way at a race before. I struggled, especially in the qualification Heat. I had to slow down quite a lot. I had some medicine and tried to have a good night but it was not easy. I wanted to do the best I could today and I’m quite surprised! My feeling on the bike was much better; really good. It was so nice to get two moto wins like I did. It is good for the confidence and the championship. I was really happy about my riding and I...

Team Suzuki Press Office – May 11.

The Belgian also rose to second place in the MXGP championship standings as a result and narrowed the difference in points to just 24 from leader Antonio Cairoli.

Team Suzuki Press Office – May 4.

Hot Dutch sunshine shone down on the sand of Valkenswaard as Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MXGP’s Kevin Strijbos nudged team-mate Clement Desalle from the third-step of the podium in front of a decent 27,000 crowd for what was the sixth round of the FIM Motocross World Championship.

The Grand Prix of Netherlands is almost a home event for the Lommel-based factory team. The Eurocircuit sand was dry, bumpy and tricky with some hard and slick sections but also vast berms and ruts by the time of the second motos on Sunday. The terrain required some...

Colton Haaker came out swinging at the opening round of the most highly anticipated season of EnduroCross ever. Colton raced his Honda CRF450R to a hard earned Heat win after winding his way thru the mass chaos of downed bikes and riders. Colton backed up his Heat win and proved he was the man to beat by posting the fastest qualifying time for gate pick. Not only did he earn 2 additional championship points for his Heat race and Hot lap wins, but followed it up with a solid second place overall for the night in the 12- lap main event.

“I am so proud of Colton. He is maturing into a...

Jeremy Martin: "Pretty solid night of racing at Metlife Stadium on Saturday night. Was able to walk away with a 2nd place finish. It has been a rough SX season so it felt good to get on the podium but I really wanted to win. My goal is finish on top of the box next week in Vegas."

Kevin Strijbos:

“I had two good races today despite the fact that it was far from easy; I struggled to find my rhythm and speed on this track. I made two good starts and put my head down in both motos. I’m happy I am on the podium. After the last GP we changed some stuff and I was riding a bit more; all that work has paid off.”

Glenn Coldenhoff:

“Good to be back on the podium again. Especially with that first moto result. I had a bad start and the track was very one-line then. I was a bit too slow in the first 10 minutes and by the time I picked-it-up, I missed some momentum to make the passes. I finished eighth. The team suggested some set-up changes and I didn’t really agree but they paid off; so I’m really happy those guys are behind me. I followed Guillod until I could see that he would slow down a little bit. I took the lead and held it to the finish line.”

Clement Desalle:

“I came here relaxed and had a good feeling on the track. The races were good and I had some decent starts. I was second throughout the first moto and it was hard to make the difference here. I came back on Gautier Paulin sometimes, but would make some small mistakes to lose some time; it went like that all the way through. It was easy to make a mistake on this track but I’m really happy with how it worked out today. The season did not start how I expected but I was feeling better in Thailand. I don't have pain in my shoulder and feel good on the Suzuki. I don't know if...

Jason Anderson continued his consistent 2014 championship campaign with yet another solid podium ride. Unfortunately for the fans of NW Supercross, it also marked the last time the series will visit Washington. The team traveled to the NW with only Jason under the tent, dealing with a slew of injuries to all of it's 450 contenders this season. Cole Thompson being the most recent to go down with a knee injury one week ago.


With the level of competition in the West Coast 250 class, it's very unlikely that any rider could win every race and take the title easily. The key to taking the #1 plate...
