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.

Strijbos Races to Second MXGP 2014 Podium / May.6.2014
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.

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...

Kevin Strijbos on the Podium at Arco Di Trento / Apr.16.2014
“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 3rd at Italian GP! / Apr.16.2014
“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 Tops the Field in Italy! / Apr.16.2014
“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...

DESALLE & ROCKSTAR ENERGY SUZUKI WIN IN ITALY / Apr.14.2014
Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Clement Desalle won today’s Italian MXGP at Trentino in Italy for round four of 18 in the FIM Motocross World Championship.
It was the Belgian’s first victory of the season in front of 25,000 European spectators hungry for their first taste of high-level motocross action in 2014.
Desalle was faultless on the toughest racing surface of the year so far and his results of second and first in the two motos on the RM-Z450 led to a convincing success; his first since the 2013 British Grand Prix.
Joining him on the MXGP box was...

Glenn Coldenhoff Closes in on Points Lead in Brazil / Apr.1.2014
“Overall second place is not too bad, but I am also working for that red plate.
The first race didn't go how I wanted it to. I really messed it up! I pushed really hard in the beginning and couldn’t pass the others so I decided to slow down a little bit to have a go again. But then I couldn't find a good rhythm and it felt like everybody was passing me. Anyway I stayed on the bike and for a bad race, fifth position wasn’t too bad. I got a good start in the second and went straight into the lead. I almost led all of the laps. It was really warm and I had to throw...
Desalle Finishes 2nd at Beto Carrero GP! / Apr.1.2014
“I’m on the podium with no crashes or injuries, so these are the positive points. It has taken a lot to come back from my shoulder injury so I am happy with how some things are going. It was hot out there today and easy to make a mistake. It was not difficult to ride but you had to be measured with the 450 out of those corners. I’d like to say thanks to the team because they have worked really hard in the past weeks to try and improve.”
