The second round of the FIM Motocross World Championships took place on the famous, technical track of Bellpuig in Spain. The three time World Champion and veteran Alessio Chiodi won in the class MX 2, while the young factory KTM rider, and last year's MX2 Champion, Ben Townley won his first MX1 GP.MX1 CLASSIt was a day to forget for eight-time World Champion Stefan Everts. Two crashes in Moto 1 left him to finish eighth. Everts was determined to do better in Moto 2, and did, finishing second, but his results were not enough to maintain the championship points lead. Mickael Pichon's 1-6 finish gave him second overall at the Spanish GP, and he now moves into the lead, four points ahead of Everts who is now tied with Joel Smets for second.Ben Townley: "I'm really happy! I didn't expect to win so early in the championship. Moving up to the MX1 class the racing has been so intense with guys like Stefan, Jol, Michael and Josh. Some of these guys have been my hero's when I came to Europe five years ago and now it's great to be racing them and beating them. I can't say enough about KTM at the moment—they have been really working hard every day, every minute to win races—we showed today that we can and it's their first in the MX1 class and hopefully we'll have some more!"Mickael Pichon is still citing problems with his suspension, but is admittedly happy to have moved into the points lead: "It was a good weekend. I was able to take second in the GP and I am now leading the Championship. I don't feel like I am riding my best at the moment. We have to sort out the problem we're having with the forks. It was the same situation in Zolder but improved a bit for today. We have to keep working to find a solution."Stefan Everts: "I'm disappointed that I couldn't do any better this weekend. I had good start in the first Moto, but I pushed too much and made a mistake in the whoops. I went over the handlebars and the bike landed on top of me, bruising my ribs on the left side. In the second crash I sprained my left thumb. I was in a lot of pain in the second race and I suffered a lot of arm pump because my hand was taped. I was lucky to finish second after Coppins crashed. I felt completely exhausted after the race, charging so hard while being injured."
