Motocross 2010: Philippaerts in pole at last round of 2010 in Fermo, Italy
FERMO (ITALY), 11 September 2010 – With the FIM Motocross World Championship 2010 season coming to an end in Fermo this weekend, home rider David Philippaerts started off strong by taking the pole ahead of tomorrow’s races, when he will chase the second position in the Championship after Tony Cairoli won it in Brazil. Ken Roczen took the pole in the MX2 class as he remains second in the Championship.
A hard fought MX1 qualifying heat saw Philippaerts dominate but second place went to a surprising Sebastien Pourcel finishing ahead of Nicolas Aubin, both taking their first top three finish of 2010. Fourth was Tony Cairoli –in the day he and Philippaerts have been finally confirmed as Team Italy riders at the Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations- as he struggled after the start and lost a few positions.
In the MX2 class Roczen won a two way battle for the pole with 2010 World Champion Marvin Musquin challenging the German but ending an eventual second. Third was Jeremy Van Horebeek followed by Steven Frossard.
In the EMX 125 class Pascal Rauchenecker took pole ahead of Dawid Ciucci and Alessandro D’Angelo. Second and third in the Championship Yohan Lafont and Sulivan Jaulin were seventh and tenth respectively.
