Tony Cairoli clinched the 2014 FIM 450 World Championships, but that has been a foregone conclusion ever since Clement Desalle and Gautier Paulin got injured. Even healthy, neither of these highly touted contenders has ever been able to put a dent in Cairoli’s dominance of the 450 class. His title in Brazil was a foregone conclusion. He is a great Champion and worthy of all the praise he gets.

While Max Nagl won the MXGP of Brazil it was third placed rider Antonio Cairoli who picked up his 8th World MX title. Nagl riding for the HRC Factory team went 1-1, while Gautier Paulin was second with 40pts and third was Cairoli was 36pts.

Meanwhile, in the 250 class the battle between Jordi Tixier and the injured Jeffrey Herlings is now headed to the final GP of the year in Mexico. Herlings, who broke his femur when he had a massive 184 point lead over Tixier, has seen it whittled down to 23 points with one race left. Herlings has threatened to show up in Mexico to try to stop Tixier’s charge—and since the rider turnout is so small even a guy with a broken leg could score GP points. How many points? Herlings would need 27 points (the equivalent of two 7th place finishes). KTM has to ask whether it is worth the risk of a career ending injury should Herlings fall? If Herlings can’t race in Mexico, then Tixier will win the Championship with 23 points (the equivalent of two 9th place finishes).

Frenchman Romain Febvre is making his farewell to the MX2 class a good one as he won the Grand Prix of Brazil. Febvre who rides for the Jacky Martins Husqvarna Factory team scored 1-3 results for the GP victory. Febvre led home fellow Frenchman Dylan Ferrandis and Honda rider Tim Gajser.

Red Bull KTM Factory rider Jordi Tixier finished fourth overall with 34pts and is now 23 points behind Jeffrey Herlings in the championship points with one round to go in Mexico.
