Nagl wins moto one

The opening MXGP moto of the year and Xavier Boog took the lead early, followed by Strijbos, Bobryshev, Nagl, Cairoli, Frossard, Paulin, Desalle, Guarneri, Roelants in 10th. Well back was Searle in 12th, Simpson 15th, Waters 18th and Nicholls 19th.

Strijbos running on his good form on Friday took the lead after half a lap and Bobryshev also went past Boog. Desalle was in trouble as he crashed back to 13th place. Cairoli was looking more aggressive today and was looking for a way past Bobryshev, who had suddenly slipped back to third as Nagl moved into second.

Paulin passed Cairoli and set out after Bobryshev and Nagl closed in on Strijbos for the lead. The two front guys were racing hard and close to eachother although the smooth style of Strijbos continued to give him reward as Nagl pushed for a way past.

Paulin and Bobryshev were also in a good battle, although Paulin won this won passing for third place. Nagl took the lead on lap three and Paulin, Bobryshev, Cairoli and Frossard fought over third place.

Cairoli burst past Bobryshev as Nagl and Strijbos pulled slightly away from Paulin. Further back Searle was riding well moving into 8th place and Simpson was 9th. Desalle remained in 12thposition and was struggling.

On lap five Paulin, Cairoli, and Frossard moved onto the back wheel of Strijbos and started hunting the Belgian down. Nagl held a two second lead. Cairoli was really hanging it out as he sat on Paulins back wheel.

On lap seven it was Nagl, Strijbos, Paulin, Cairoli, Frossard, Bobryshev, Van Horebeek, Searle, Simpson and Guarneri in 10th. Strijbos started fading as his lack of race time caught up with him and Paulin, Cairoli and Frossard went past.

Slowly edging towards Nagl for the lead Paulin, Cairoli and Frossard continued to impress with their speed. The top ten were within sight of eachother as the MXGP class really showed off its talent.

Desalle passed Simpson for ninth place and Cairoli was giving Paulin nightmares as he pushed to pass the Frenchman. In their shadows Frossard sat waiting for a mistake by the Frenchman and Italian.

Due to the close battle between Paulin and Cairoli the leader Nagl was making the gap even bigger, now four seconds on lap 11. Searle moved past Bobryshev and Waters moved up to 13thplace for a lap before Philippaerts went past.

On lap 13 Nagl held a five second lead over Paulin and six seconds over Cairoli. Next came Frossard, Van Horebeek, Strijbos, Searle, Bobryshev, Desalle, and Simpson in 10th place. Cairoli finally got past Paulin and started his charge for Nagl.

Nagl got the win ahead of Cairoli, Paulin, Frossard, Van Horebeek, Van Horbeek, Searle, Strijbos, Bobryshev, Desalle and Roelants in 10th.
