Yamaha Red Bull De Carli’s Antonio Cairoli has claimed his second win of the season and second double moto set of 2009 after an entertaining afternoon of racing at Agueda for the Grand Prix of Portugal and the fifth event from the calendar of fifteen races in the FIM MX1-GP World Championship. The Sicilian captured two chequered flags to win his fourth Portuguese GP in five years, his first in MX1-GP and with the YZ450F, and extend his immaculate record at Agueda to nine triumphs from ten motos.

Portuguese rider Rui Goncalves made his dream come true and those of his team and his many fans, on Sunday when he won his home MX2 GP at the Agueda circuit with a 2-1 result in the two motos, launched with two holeshots.
Just shy of his twenty fourth birthday, Rui now goes to the GP of Catalunya next weekend as the winner of the last two MX2 GPs after having vaulted into fourth place in the season's standings. "This is what I have been working for with so much passion. It's so great to be here on top of the box," he told reporters straight after the race.

Emotional win

After a superb start and the hole shot, Red Bull KTM's Steffi Laier's luck ran out in Portugal in the first of two motos of the women's world championship round two on Saturday.
"I had no problem with Livia passing me in the early stages because I just wanted to settle in behind her, pick out the lines, race my race and wait for my opportunity to re-take the lead," the talented young rider from Germany said after the race. "But I was riding tight on the inside and when I caught up to the back markers one of the slower riders braked in front of me and I couldn't avoid her."

With his sights set on two top five results in Sunday's MX1 GP of Portugal, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Max Nagl finished in sixth place in Saturday's qualifying.
"This was a good day for me," the German rider said. "I was quite fast in all sessions and I like the track a lot." Nagl got off to a good start and was riding comfortably with the front runners. He was riding in fifth place behind Italian Antonio Cairoli and although was passed by Tanel Leok in the closing stages, was satisfied with his day's ride.
