Gautier Paulin finished his #mxgp of Lombardia by climbing on the podium for the second week in succession, clinching second overall in Mantova.
The Frenchman wasn’t entirely happy with yesterday’s qualifying race, but worked hard with the team overnight on his #crf450rw and bounced back strongly today to take a third and a second, which he snatched on the last lap of the second #moto, to climb onto the second step of the podium.
Evgeny Bobryshev posted two recovery rides today after his win in qualifying yesterday, getting boxed in at the starts around the tricky tight right-hander. From tenth in race one the Russian soon found his rhythm and heaved himself to fifth, setting the then-fastest lap of the race. Race two was much the same, as he fought back from 12th at the start to sixth, to finish the Grand Prix seventh overall.
Conditions all weekend have been sweltering, and apart from a welcome breeze that gave a little respite, today was no different. The temperature soared to 30 degrees Celsius with a stifling 46 per cent humidity, making the conditions on-track closer to those in Thailand than might be expected within Europe.
The season now embarks upon its summer break with three weekends of no Grand Prix action, but during which the riders’ training and testing schedules will continue in earnest.
