Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna factory rider Max Nagl has won the Grand Prix of Argentina with 3-1 results ahead of Clement Desalle who went 1-3 and Antonio Cairoli who scored 2-2 results.

MXGP moto one

The opening MXGP moto and it’s Clement Desalle who takes the lead early from Shaun Simpson, Evgeny Bobryshev and Ryan Villopoto. A few riders passed Villopoto as it seemed he was struggling a little with the early pace. Cairoli was the first past, then Van Horebeek, although Villopoto quickly settled into third place behind Desalle and Cairoli.

Simpson first dropped back from second, but then made his way past Villopoto, and Van Horebeek was giving the American a hard time also. Up front after one lap and its Desalle and Cairoli first and second.

Simpson and Villopoto were in a big battle, although Villopoto finally made the pass stick and stayed in third.

Desalle held a two second lead over Cairoli, with Villopoto another two seconds back, although Villopoto is now getting pushed by Yamaha rider Romain Febvre.

Desalle has it all his own way as Cairoli holds second and Villopoto and Febvre move closer to the defending MXGP champion. Further back are Nagl, Bobryshev, Van Horbeek, Paulin, Charlier and Guarneri in 10th.

Febvre falls and loses a handful of places. Van Horebeek goes down twice to drop right out of contention.

Desalle continues to dominate with Cairoli a safe second and Nagl passes Villopoto for third place. Cairoli makes ground on Desalle and for a fleeting moment takes the lead, although Desalle fights back to regain the lead.

Desalle the championship leader showing great speed as he continues to lead. Cairoli quickly pulled away from Nagl, while Nagl held a nice third place, but Villopoto is trying to work his way back into third place.

Nagl has dropped Villopoto and continues to impress in 2015 on his factory Husqvarna. Cairoli does some amazing lap times and pulls up to Desalle, but on the last laps as Cairoli was biting on the back wheel of Desalle the Italian went down hard. He remounted to finish second ahead of Nagl, Villopoto, Bobryshev, Paulin,

Desalle: I feel good my start was good, happy about that and I really had to concentrate because the track was tricky. I am really proud of myself to win on this track.

MXGP moto two

Last moto of the day and its Nagl, Cairoli and Desalle, with Villopoto back in 11th place. Desalle takes the lead followed by Cairoli, Nagl, Van Horebeek, Coldenhoff, Coldenhoff, Villopoto, Waters, Charlier, Febvre and Paulin in 10th place.

Nagl passed Cairoli quickly and Villopoto moved up into fourth place. The American isn’t riding the same lines as many riders and looks a little wild at times. Villopoto is onto Cairoli and Nagl is onto Desalle, this race is turning into a dog fight.

The top four spread out a little as nobody seemed to be able to make ground on the guy in front. Nagl and Desalle are just battling for the lead as they ride side by side. Nagl takes the lead and Cairoli loses a little ground on the top two as Villopoto tries to hang with the Italian.

Villopoto lost some ground but quickly found some extra speed and was now onto the back wheel of Villopoto. Just as he felt the heat from Villopoto Cairoli turned it up and started chasing after Desalle.

Top ten after 11 laps is Nagl, Desalle, Cairoli, Villopoto, Van Horebeek, Febvre, Paulin, Coldenhoff, Waters and Bobryshev in 10th place.

A great battle between Cairoli, Desalle, Villopoto and Van Horebeek for the minor places (Nagl is long gone for the moto win and GP overall).

In the end Nagl crossed the line for the moto and GP victory, just behind him came Cairoli, Desalle, Villopoto and Van Horebeek.

Nagl: Of course I didn’t know I was overall winner, everyone was so close together on the track, but podium is great. The bike works how I want and that is why I can go this speed. I was too slow on Saturday, but something changed overnight. I won the GP, wow, that’s awesome. We are surprised because nobody expected this, but the bike is so strong and we are all putting an effort in and I am so proud of how I am riding.

Desalle: I wanted to have the victory, but I kept it on two wheels and I didn’t win, but if it is like this at the end of the championship then I am happy.

Cairoli: I felt good, my condition was good, I passed Clement, but he passed me back. I actually hit my head pretty hard in that first moto crash. I was top give in the start and Max was riding well, and he deserves this GP. We need to work better. I am not completely in good shape, but everything is going to plan.

MX 2

Ferrandis held the lead with Pauls Jonass in second, those two battling hard of the front spot. Soon after the first lap Jonass passed Ferrandis and behind them came Julien Lieber, Max Anstie, Jeremy Seewer, Adam Sterry, Benoit Paturel, Alexandr Tonkov, Valentin Guillod and Thomas Covington in 10th.

Jonass and Ferrandis were in a great battle for first place, with Anstie also looking to catch the two in front in third place. Ferrandis eventually worked his way into the lead and another Kawasaki rider Covington had worked his way into seventh and was working hard to move into sixth place.

American rider Covington moved into sixth spot and was now just a couple of seconds behind Seewer in fifth place. Ferrandis was now two seconds ahead of Jonass after six laps.

Ferrandis eventually won ahead of Jonass, Anstie, Lieber, Seewer, Guillod, Covington, Paturel, Van Doninck and Tonkov in 10th.

Ferrandis: I am really happy now, but we need to be focused for the second moto. I don’t know what happened to Jeffrey, he usually starts in front of me, so this is different.

MX2 moto two

Herlings took a quick lead in the second moto ahead of Jonass, Tonkov, with Seewer fourth followed by Ferrandis and Covington. Ferrandis passed Seewer, but still needed to catch and pass Tonkov and maybe Jonass to get the GP victory.

Not a lot happened as Herlings is in a race of his own, but still the GP overall was on the edge as Ferrandis five seconds down on the Latvian and his overall chances.

Tonkov made a mistake and Ferrandis was on him and pushing the Russian rider. Tonkov getting a lot of pressure from the Frenchman went down hard and nearly took Ferrandis with him.

Once into third place Ferrandis set out after Jonass and once on his back wheel Jonass began to make small mistakes. Ferrandis pushed hard and made his way past Jonass to move into second place and Jonass seemed to be happy with third. Herlings of course was long gone.

Herlings takes the moto win and Ferrandis the GP overall with his 1-2 results. Second overall in the GP was Jonass with 2-2 and third Seewer with 5-5.

Ferrandis: It is crazy to get the win. I saw Jeffrey take the lead early and I was pushing hard hoping we could have a battle, but then I crashed, and thought I can’t lose this GP, and I am so happy for the GP win.
