Cairoli and Herlings: odds-on favourites

The MX World Championship will welcome many regulation changes this year. The MX1 category will now be known as MXGP, with its race duration shortened to 30 minutes plus an additional two laps in the top two tiers. A maximum of 30 riders can take part in the MXGP class, with 40 permitted for the MX2 category. The reigning MX2 champion can defend his title as often as he wants, providing he is under the age of 23. Points in the Super Final are awarded as follows: 25, 22, 20, 18,16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

In MXGP, Antonio Cairoli, who remains at KTM with team-mate Ken de Dycker, is the odds-on favourite after winning a seventh world championship in 2013. The Italian rider sealed the title commandingly, finishing 90 points clear of runner-up Clément Desalle and 107 ahead of third-placed man de Dycker. Other front-runners include Gautier Paulin, who won in Bulgaria and Portugal last year, Tommy Searle and Kevin Strijbos, even though he suffered injuries during the off-season.

In MX2, 19-year-old Jeffrey Herlings looks to defend his title after dominating in 2013. The only threat came from French team-mate Jordi Tixier, who finished 135 points adrift of the Dutchman and is poised to enter the winner’s circle this year.
