Beyond the ocean. Lawrence was great, Seewer closer to the top. Herlings dominates even in America and Cairoli comes close from the title

Round 17: GP of USA

After just one week of break, the world's motocross chempionship landed over the ocean for the seventeenth race of the season. The world's motocross circus made a stop on the Jacksonville track, 200km north of Orlando, Florida. The sandy bottom of the flat circuit recalled very well the features of the European traks and despite a persistent rain falling during the days preceding the racing day, the track was well and the races took place on a very selective ground. In the MX2, it was the young Australian Hunter Lawrence (Team Suzuki World MX2), which on board its Suzuki RMZ 250 equipped with the control unit RX1 EVO, the data acquisition system M40 and the innovative Launch Control LC-GPA system succeeded to win his first career podium in the world's motocross by closing the GP in second place. Instead, Jeremy Seewer  (Team Suzuki World MX2) missed the podium, on board Suzuki RMZ 250 equipped with the control unit RX1 EVO, the data acquisition system M40 and the innovative Launch Control LC-GPA . The Swiss made it to fourth place, but still managed to recover some points to the leader Pauls Jonass (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing), which in the saddle of the KTM 250 SXF, supported by Athena, led the league with forty points of advantage. In MXGP, GP victory for Jeffrey Herlings (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) on the KTM 450 SXF supported by Athena. The Dutchman, having played the last test of the American "National" championship last week, where he had been able to win in both races, proved strong in the GP, winning second and first place in the two races ran. Third place in the day's standings ended for Antonio Cairoli (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) on the KTM 450 SXF supported by Athena. In Florida, Cairoli had the first "match point" available to win the ninth career title, but with a not perfect start in the first moto (third at the finish), he failed to face Herlings. In the second moto, TC222 proved to be one of the fastest drivers on the track by commanding the group up to about half of the race before leaving Herlings to pass him and doing what was the penultimate step of approaching the ninth world title.

Next race: September 10, 2017 / GP of The Netherlands - Assen
