I can't tell from the French results....but it looks like Mika Ahola got 5 on the day in the 500 class. He might have the 500 class win and possibly the overall. Any one know? :)

1 Ahola
2 Fretigne (I think)
3 Tiainen
If anyone has a good link, I'd like to know more about the results.

TM you are right, Ahola DID get the overal and Fretigne was second with about 1/2 minute separating them.

Nice way for VOR debut their updated motor and brand new chassis. Bet some celebration is going on in Italy!

1. I noted in another article that Miki Arpa had troubles restarting after a crash indicating that he did not have e-start either. Photos of the factory VORs indicate that they were using aluminum fuel tanks (possibly smaller)

2. Due to poor coverage of the ISDE for us engilish speaking folks, I compliled what number I could get and generated a summary of the top 18 overall finishers. So here they are (note the US rider didn't make the top 50, so they are not included):
1 1 566 AHOLA Mika SML VOR (1) 500cc 4T 2:13:20.73
2 1 137 FRETIGNE David FFM YAMAHA (1) 250cc 2T 2:13:42.64
3 2 558 TIAINEN Kari SML KTM (2) 500cc 4T 2:13:49.25 28.52
4 3 555 ERIKSSON Anders SVEMO HVA (3) 500cc 4T 2:14:40.33 1:19.60
5 2 132 BOANO Jarno FMI HONDA (2) 250cc 2T 2:15:41.95 1:59.31
6 1 14 GERMAIN Marc FFM KTM (1) 125cc 2T 2:16:17.45
7 4 567 SALA Giovanni FMI KTM (4) 500cc 4T 2:16:18.60 2:57.87
8 1 451 RINALDI Mario FMI YAMAHA (1) 400cc 4T 2:16:46.43
9 3 131 BERNARD Eric FFM KTM (3) 250cc 2T 2:16:55.26 3:12.62
10 2 20 REBUFIE Olivier FFM KTM (2) 125cc 2T 2:17:00.03 42.58
11 2 439 CARLSSON Björne SVEMO HUSABERG (2) 400cc 4T 2:17:01.73 15.30
12 3 28 BOANO Ivan FMI HONDA (3) 125cc 2T 2:17:18.55 1:01.10
13 4 144 GUILLAUME Sébastien FFM HVA (4) 250cc 2T 2:17:19.39 3:36.75
14 4 16 MICHALIK Roman ACCR TM (4) 125cc 2T 2:17:22.45 1:05.00
15 5 564 COMA Marc RFME HVA (5) 500cc 4T 2:17:35.39 4:14.66
16 5 173 LAAKSONEN Jani SML GAS GAS (5) 250cc 2T 2:17:43.53 4:00.89
17 5 34 GUSTAVSSON Niklas SVEMO KTM (5) 125cc 2T 2:17:51.88 1:34.43
18 3 433 ARPA Miki RFME VOR (3) 400cc 4T 2:17:59.85 1:13.42
Note1: I didn't "clean up" the data. The number indicated as 2:13:20.73 is Mika Aholas score in hours:minutes: seconds.hundredth of second.
Note2: If I get bored this evening I may sort the total results for finishers.

THANKS...

The VOR folks say that Miki Arpa threw a chain and had a tough time putting it back on in that Moto. I Didn't ask about electric start.


TM Do you mind if I copy and past these results on another board..where there is interest..Actually email me and I will tell you where.:)

TM do you think there would be any interest if one of the top 20 ISDE riders came here and did a seminar? (During the off season..over the next few months.) Maybe at one of the "Spode fests?":)
