    From  Team Suzuki

Ken  Roczen won the Grand Prix of Italy at Fermo and complete a memorable day for  Suzuki as Teka Suzuki Europe World MX2 team-mate Arnaud Tonus scored his first  podium, Larissa Papenmeier won her second Women's World Championship event and  Clement Desalle owned the MX1 category on the RM-Z450 to paint the vast  majority of three podiums a shade of yellow.

The German  once more duelled with Marvin Musquin although 22,500 spectators witnessed the  16 year old hold the upper-hand on the Italian hillside hard-pack thanks to the  power and performance of his fuel-injected RM-Z250. Roczen escaped to win the  first moto by a canter and then followed Musquin for seven laps in the second  sprint before finding a gap in a layout that was not easy for overtaking and  escaping to claim his second 'double' moto haul of 2010.

The result  at the 15th and final round completed an exceptional final third of the  campaign for the team and the teenager: Roczen won three of the last five GPs  and only dropped out of the top three twice in the last 15 motos and those  blips were caused by technical misfortune.

Fermo saw  Arnaud Tonus in a determined and attacking mood and the 18 year old Swiss  pushed through for fifth and fourth for his first career podium finish with  third overall. The result also elevated him to seventh in the final MX2  championship standings.

Fermo  hosted the final round of the Women's World Championship and Larissa Papenmeier  scooped victory on the 2009 RM-Z250. The German rode to third and first for her  spoils and has staked third in the competition.

Teka  Suzuki Europe World MX2's haul this year has been impressive:

From 15  Grand Prix events they can count on three wins and 11 podiums thanks to Roczen  and Tonus' talents. Roczen finished 96 points ahead of Steven Frossard and also  collected his second national title with the German ADAC MX Masters series.  Tonus only dropped out of the top 10 on eight occasions in 30 motos and moved  up from a maiden championship finish of 16th in 2009 to collect seventh.

After a busy  campaign stretching back to successful pre-season races during February and  March, the team has one major appointment left with the Motocross of Nations at  Thunder Valley in Colorado on September 26th. Roczen and Marcus Schiffer will  wear the Suzuki/Teka colours for Germany and Tonus is ready to represent  Switzerland.

Ken Roczen  - 2nd, 2010 World MX2 Championship:

"This  is what I wanted. I took two race wins and I was really going for it. I felt  better today than I did yesterday and rode really well. I had a good fight with  Marvin until he crashed in the second moto. Marvin has been a great opponent  but lately I have come closer and showed that I can be good too. I had two fast  starts and that really helped. I planned to make the break early and it worked  to perfection even if I did have to wait a little bit in the first one because  the track had been watered and was quite slick. We have had a season with some  ups and downs but I am really happy to have finished my first full year in this  strong way."

Arnaud  Tonus - 7th , 2010 World MX2 Championship:

"This  feels great! I got-on with the track and could really push here. I was  surprised when I learnt I had made the podium. My starts were not so good so I  really had to go for it to reach the positions I did and get near the front. I  was consistent in both races and then had that good news when I came across the  line. I am going to work hard this winter to make the next step and take some  more results like this next season."

Larissa  Papenmeier - 3rd 2010 World Championship:

"I'm  really happy to have another victory. I want to thank my family and my  boyfriend and all my friends. The track was awesome with some fun jumps that  were also technical; it was a good track for me and I wanted to win. I had some  bad luck at the beginning of the season so to finish top-three in the  Championship is a good result."

Thomas  Ramsbacher -Team Manager:

"This  is the greatest day for our team ever! Two wins and a podium result; we could  not have asked for more. It shows that that the team is in a very good  position. Thanks to Teka for two very good years and for sure Suzuki will stay  top of the podium. Thanks to all of our supporters and friends who have helped  us reach what we have achieved this season and we are really looking forward to  2011."
