Belgium’s Clement Desalle has not dropped out of the top two in the first four motos of the premier class in the 2015 FIM Motocross World Championship and carries the coveted red plate as MXGP series leader to Neuquen this week for the first Grand Prix of Argentina this century.

British rider Jonathan has won the first ever World Superbike race to be held in Thailand and he did it in style with back-to-back race wins at the weekend.
Colorado’s Eli Tomac captured his second United States Supercross Championship race of the season at Ford Field in Detroit at the weekend, although Florida’s Ryan Dungey still managed to extend his championship lead by finishing the night runner-up at this 12th round of 18 in the series.
