Tommy Searle gave Suomy its first win in a category where missing for eight years!
The debut of Mr. Jump in MX2 could not have better ending than a podium, the first of many podiums we hope ... whereas we are only two-thirds of the league to win the World Cup!

The British rider had also taken victory at the hillside track on his last visit three years ago, but was still seeking the optimal suspension settings for the rugged track until the CLS team found the solution on Sunday morning to send Tommy full of confidence to the start gate. A couple of early errors on a track made unpredictable by overnight rain restricted Tommy to 4th in the opening moto, but he had consistently set the fastest lap times throughout the second half of the race to offer great promise for race two. Starting third, Tommy saw early leader Roczen crash spectacularly on the opening lap and he quickly moved past the new leader Osborne as he sensed the opportunity of victory. A few laps later he surrendered the lead temporarily to a hard-charging Herlings, but the new leader was clearly riding over his head and it was only a matter of time before Searle pounced to regain the lead and race away for a clearcut victory which also ensured the overall win on the day. Tommy remains third in the championship but reduced his deficit to the leader by eight points and now trails by just 27 points with two-thirds of the season still to run.  Tommy Searle: “The team is doing a great job to give me a winning bike; we made some changes to the suspension this morning and it worked. I made a couple of mistakes early in the first race but I was the fastest at the end of the race. When I saw Roczen rolling about on the ground on the first lap of race two I felt bad for him, but I had to take full advantage. I said to myself "This one is mine now." I went past Osborne for the lead, but then Herlings came up fast. He was making mistakes and I knew I would be able to get him again before the end; he went wide in a corner, I was able to go under him and just put my head down. I've been consistent so far but we're all picking up the pace; I'm so happy to give Jean-Jacques, Gael and the rest of the team this victory in their home GP but we are getting stronger every week and I now need to win more races if I'm going to win this championship."

RACE 1. A close race at times was turned into a cool race win for Eugene Laverty (Yamaha World Superbike) as he stretched his rivals to breaking point in the final laps.
Max Biaggi (Aprilia Alitalia Racing) and Leon Haslam (BMW Motorrad Motorsport) took the other podium places, after some tough passes and fights between that duo and fourth place rider Marco Melandri (Yamaha World Superbike).

Michel Fabrizio (SUOMY) had a strong ride on his Suzuki Alstare and set the fastest lap on his way to fifth place.

RACE 2. Eugene Laverty (Yamaha World Superbike) won a last corner battle with his team-mate Marco Melandri (Yamaha World Superbike) in the second 18-lap race at Monza but the bigger drama was the award of a ride-through penalty for long-time race leader Max Biaggi (Aprilia Alitalia), for cutting a chicane in an incorrect way. He recovered to finish eighth.
Third was Michel Fabrizio (Suzuki Alstare) but only after a massive fight with Noriyuki Haga, who went fourth.

Michel Fabrizio: "This year is really tough! We really miss too much speed. Changing from second to third other riders gave me a lot and forced me to pull out to recover from. Fourth place would go well, then came the third and pays us the great work we are doing. "
