Husqvarna is Italiaans motorcross kampioen!
Alex Lupino has won the International Italian Motocross Championship thanks to a second place finish in the final race of the competition held in Odolo.
With the TC250 of the Husqvarna Motocross Racing Team by Ricci, Lupino who has set the fastest time in the timed practice stage, took an immediate lead in the final race. Only Petrov was able to overtake Lupino who wasn’t prepared to take any unnecessary risks.
‘I’m really happy to have rewarded the team with this title. I competed well without taking too many risks, and controlled the race. Next Monday I’m off to Belgium to train on the sand in preparation for the World Championships.’
Bad luck for Nick Triest that crashed in the superfinal (MX1+MX2) and injured his left shoulder.
PODIUM SUCCESS FOR SALMINEN & SALVINI AT EWC GP OF CHILE
Talca (Chile) - Husqvarna Enduro Team by CH Racing riders Juha Salminen and Alex Salvini both secured podium results at the opening round of the 2012 Enduro World Championship, the GP of Chile held in Talca. Reigning Enduro 1 World Champion Salminen claimed a convincing win in the Enduro 2 class aboard his TE310 on day one, while Salvini put a difficult opening day behind him to claim third in E2 on day two.
With conditions extremely dry and dusty in Talca, the opening day saw many surprise result, due largely to one difficult uphill on the enduro test. While several of the Husqvarna Enduro team riders saw their results suffer as a result of lost time on the troublesome enduro test, Juha Salminen delivered the goods to start his season in the best way possible – by placing his TE310 on the top step of the E2 class podium. Despite improved speed on the event’s motocross test on day two Juha made a few too many mistakes to challenge for the podium, including one costly error on the enduro test. Despite his day two frustrations the Finn showed impressive speed throughout the event, and now looks forward to next weekend’s GP of Argentina.
Competing alongside Salminen in the Enduro 2 class, Alex Salvini and Romain Dumontier endured two tough days of racing. Both riders suffered numerous falls on day one but Salvini was able to turn his fortunes around on day two to claim a deserved third place result, placing just 20 seconds behind runner-up Ivan Cervantes. Romain Dumontier crashed on numerous occasions throughout both days to place 11th and 19th in the Enduro 2 class.
In the Enduro 1 category team riders Matti Seistola, Lorenzo Santolino and Ricky Dietrich all battled through two challenging days of racing, with Seistola delivering the best results. Aiming for podium finishes on both days the Finn showed good speed throughout days one and two but saw several mistakes on day one prevent him from finishing higher than sixth in class. Determined to improve his result on day two, on several occasions Matti caught slower riders ahead of him and lost time riding through their dust. Seistola placed fifth.
Making their debut’s for the Husqvarna Enduro team by CH Racing Frenchman Spain’s Lorenzo Santolino finished a strong fourth on day one but down in 13th on day two in Enduro 1. Ricky Dietrich placed 12th and 11th over the two days in the same class on his debut in EWC.
LARRIEU FOURTH IN THE FRENCH MX CHAMPIONSHIP

Now Larrieu is second overall behind Desprey and in front of Telliet in the provisional standings of the MX2 elite French Championship after 3 races.
