KTM’s Tony Cairoli and Ken Roczen won the 450 and 250 World Championships at Gaildorf with one round left in the season (Fermo, Italy).

In the 450 class the only contender left for the title was Steven Frossard and when he crashed out of moto one, Cairoli cruised home in third place with the title in his hands. The second moto was just a formality.


Cody Cooper got a shot at the GPs on a works Suzuki. He went 21-26 in the 450 class.

In the 250 class Ken Roczen went 1-3 to finished second behind Tommy Searle’s 2-1, but with title contender Jeffrey Herlings finishing 5-2, Roczen now has a 50-point lead with only 50 points left in the season. If Herlings wins in Fermo next weekend and Roczen doesn’t score any points, Roczen and Herlings would tie, but Roczen has won more GPs than Herlings and that would be the tie breaker.

TOMMY WEECK’S EUROPEAN DEBUT
Tommy Weeck, who rose to a small level of fame for his top ten finish at the Washougal 250 National, got a deal to race for the French Bud Kawasaki team, but instead the 250 World Championships, Tommy was put in the European 250 Championship series (a support race at the GPs). Tommy went 21-7 in a race won by Dylan Ferrandis. Weeck has been selected to race for Puerto Rico in the MXDN in two weeks.
