He goes into the season determined that riders should work together for the joint success of the KTM team in 2007.

How has it been for you to move from the active side of the sport into training?
Well, I am still very new, but I had to start from somewhere and now time will tell me if I am working in the right direction?

What is your main philosophy for working with the factory riders as a trainer?

Could round 9 be a breaking point in the championship where Sven attacks Yves Demaria for the championship-lead?Teammanager Jacky Martens comment´s;"Out here the track is very special. It is hardtrack with a layer of loose dirt which was soaked with water after a cloudburst on saterday.Weatherconditions today were hot and the stinging sun dried out the surface just enough to provide exeptionally good grip to the tyres.In the first race Yves Demaria had a bad start.By the time Yves had worked himself thru the pack to 3rd position, leader Sven Breugemans and Honda mounted Christian Beggi where long gone. As a professional Yves is very critical to his bike-setup, so for the second race we changed to a more flat powerband with more torque on low rpm and it paid off. This time he got a good start and reversed the situation by winning and leaving Beggi and Sven 2nd and 3rd place"

David Philippaerts shone again in the FIM Motocross World Championships with his second victory inside a week on the 250 SX-F, this time in front of 39,000 fans at the Matterley Basin circuit for the British Grand Prix.

The brand new venue was hard, sun-baked and dusty as blue skies bore down on the track located on England’s south coast. The layout was suitably impressive within the bowl-setting as rolling countryside providing a scenic backdrop but the long drags and wide banked curves meant a course that was hard on the throttle and little else.

Philippaerts passed Nicolas Aubin (again impressive on his KTM France machine) within the first stages of the opening moto and then pulled away from Billy Mackenzie and Christophe Pourcel for his third race win in a row. He was leading again in the second outing but pressure from World Champion Antonio Cairoli proved too much and he had to relinquish first spot. His 1-2 results were still sufficient for the overall win and a neat compliment to his Italian success last Sunday. His recent good form means that he has risen to third and is only fourteen points from second.
