From the thick mud of Italy
to the thrilling finale in Brazil,
the 2009 FIM World Motocross Championship delivered one of the most spectacular
seasons of bar-to-bar racing ever.
Now you can enjoy the vital highlights from
every Grand Prix as you follow both the MX1 and MX2 title battles to the bitter
end in this fantastic 2-disc Official Review
The best action-packed footage - including breathtaking
sequences captured by helmet-mounted cameras - charts every moto from all 15
GPs, plus, there’s expert circuit guides from Paul Malin and interviews with
all the stars.
This was a sensational year of mud-spitting, high-jumping
competition, with numerous first-time winners, including Ken Roczen, Jeremy van
Horebeek and Zach Osborne, the youngest-ever Grand Prix victor and an
incredible five rounds before 2009 saw its first double GP winner in either
Reigning MX1 champion David Philippaerts endured a miserable
season, but kept in touch with the title charge thanks to some flashes of
brilliance – not least his outstanding victory in Great Britain. Antonio Cairoli’s
domination in Turkey
put him in pole position for the MX1 crown, but he would be chased all the way
by countryman Philippaerts and Max Nagl, whose unbelievable late season charge
ensured a gripping climax to the showdown.
As the title battle raged, fans were
delighted by the moto-winning exploits of MX1 stars like Tanel Leok, Ken de
Dycker, Jonathan Barragan and Clement Desalle – plus an emotional victory for
Steve Ramon as he continued his recovery from a career-threatening injury.
Marvin Musquin, Gautier Paulin and Rui Goncalves set the
early MX2 championship pace, but at the mid-way point of the season, Frenchman
Musquin stepped it up a gear to become the first MX2 rider to dominate a
weekend in 2009.
Just when it looked like Musquin had the title in his grasp,
Goncalves put together two GP-winning weekends and took advantage of his
rival’s misfortune to set-up a thrilling championship showdown in Brazil. MX2
fans were also treated to class performance from the likes of British star Shaun
Simpson, Steven Frossard, Anthony Boissiere and many more of the world’s
greatest dirt bike riders.
The Official Review brings you comprehensive coverage of
every edge-of-the-seat round, and the full story of both championship battles.
