Teutschenthal's “Talkessel” hosted the Grand Prix of Germany, eighth round of FIM Motocross World Championship. The German circuit is characterized by a medium-hard soil that has been even more insidious due to the heavy rains that hit the area on Friday evening before the race. The deep channels that marked the track during the weekend have put a strain on the tires, but all Pirelli riders have been able to count on the excellent performance of the SCORPION™ MX32™ Mid Soft front and rear, the tyres that allowed the Italian brand to get the full podium in both classes. Antonio Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings have scored the same points in MXGP but the sicilian won the overall thanks to the victory in the final race. With this result Cairoli has set to 44 points his leadership in the championship over Tim Gajser. Great third place for Gautier Paulin. The French rider is on the same position in the championship behind Gajser by just one point from. The defending champion crashed hard in qualification race but managed to gain 20 points in Germany. Romain Febvre closed MXGP's top five.
