Antonio Cairoli was back on the top of the podium in Valkenswaard, while other KTM rider Jeffrey Herlings achieved a new victory at his home track. Steven Frossard is the new leader of the FIM MX1 World Championship and Ken Roczen kept the red plate after the second Grand Prix of the season.
Valkenswaard got a completely different podium in the MX1 class in comparison with the one in Bulgaria, which shows how competitive the Championship is going to be this year. Antonio Cairoli had an outstanding weekend achieving the overall victory even still having problems with his left knee. Second overall was Max Nagl thanks to his 3-1 result, and the third overall position was for David Philippaerts, whose last podium was back in 2010 at the Brazilian GP.
In the MX2 class Jeffrey Herlings obtained a consistent victory winning both heats with superb authority, while his teammate Ken Roczen could not keep Herlings rhythm and had to settle down with the second place. Third overall was Tommy Searle with a solid 3-3 result and he is now in the third position of the Championship just two points away from Herlings.
