Many of Europe’s top motocross racers enjoyed a comfortable start to the 2011 outdoor campaign. Two events were raced over the weekend one being in Valence, France the other in Mantova, Italy. Unfortunately most of the KTM factory team riders were missing due to a photoshoot in Spain and team CLS decided not to race Tommy Searle or Max Anstie and save them both for next weekends French championship opener.
Here’s a cool little gallery taken by various photographers from both events.
