Tom Vialle celebrates a first victory in MX2

The historic  Uddevalla  circuit hosted the  Grand Prix of Sweden  for the sixteenth round of eighteen in the  2019 FIM Motocross World Championship . The Scandinavian track was softer and rougher than expected after rain had fallen in the days leading up to the event but still hardened during the weekend.  Pirelli -equipped riders were able to count on the excellent performance of the  SCORPION™ MX32™ Mid Soft  front and rear. Tyres that, combined with a medium hard mousse, have allowed the Italian company to rule the podium of the  MX2  class and to reach significant positions in  MXGP.

After grabbing the  MXGP  world title last week at  Imola ,  Tim Gajser  did not relax in  Uddevalla  where he finished in second place and won the second moto.  Jeremy Seewer  performed well in Sweden, finishing fourth and equal on points with  Jeremy Van Horebeek  in fifth.  Jeffrey Herlings  returned to racing after recovering from injury and promptly won the Qualification Heat on Saturday. He was forced to retire in the first moto but finished fourth in the second. Bad luck for  Romain Febvre  who due to a crash in race 2 lost the chance of overall victory.

With two races to go until the end of the season,  Jorge Prado  confirmed the  FIM   MX2  world championship. The Spaniard had arrived in  Uddevalla  with a large advantage in the standings and victory in the first race was enough to finally close the title fight. He was third overall. There was a fantastic performance by teammate  Tom Vialle  who, for the first time in his career, owned a grand prix. He classified ahead of  Calvin Vlaanderen  who was the winner of the final race.  Adam Sterry ’s fourth place rounded off Pirelli’s control of the category.

Pirelli  also won the last round of the  EMX250  European Championship with  Stephen Rubini  and thanks to his third place overall  Roan Van De Moosdijk  was crowned European Champion ahead of  the Frenchman  in the final standings.

Due to his result in the second moto  Simon Laengelfelder  had to settle for second overall in the last round of the  EMX125  contest. Thanks to a decent season finale, the German finished third in the series.

In two weeks time  Afyon  will stage the  Grand Prix of Turkey  for the second time and for what will be the penultimate round of the  2019 FIM Motocross World Championship.
