Masterful performance from Gajser in MXGP Qualifying.

Repeating his performance from Argentina, Gajser took a dominant win in the qualifying race today at the #mxgp of Leon; Mexico.
Gajser made a statement early in the day by setting the fastest time in timed practice and holding the fastest time in two sections of the track. He looked at ease as he navigated his CRF450RW through the tricky Mexican terrain. As the qualifying race began, he had an early challenge from Coldenhoff who took the holeshot. The Slovenian didn’t let this or the changeable conditions fluster him and calmly took the lead in the second lap, where he pulled a gap and led the race from there.
Bobryshev didn’t quite have the start he had hoped for in qualifying but quickly found himself in sixth position within the first lap. After pushing a little too hard by his own admission and changing his line, Bobryshev went down costing him to fall back to eighteenth position. Finding the track conditions challenging, the steely Russian fought his way back in gritty determination to tenth position across the finish line. It was clear that Bobryshev had the speed to be in contention for the podium, so he will be focused on a better performance in tomorrow’s races.
The first #mxgp race starts tomorrow at 13:15 local time.
