A steady improvement for HRC MXGP

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

The #mxgp of Portugal has been a weekend of progression for #timgajser #243 and Evgeny Bobryshev #777 on their CRF450RW’s, as the duo still work to overcome their mid-season injuries.

As the gate dropped for the first race, Gajser found himself getting caught up in the first corner, hindering his break into the top five with Bobryshev not far behind. The team mates ended found themselves swapping places with each other for a few laps, whilst Gajser fought off pain in his stomach and Bobryshev tried to alleviate the pain in his shoulder. Gajser eventually crossed the finish in eighth whilst Bobryshev came in 11th.

By the second race, the track was considerably a lot rougher with temperatures soaring back up to 31 degrees. Gajser had a much better start, taking the Fox holeshot, whilst Bobryshev got caught up outside the top 10. In the end, both riders finished inside the top ten with Gajser taking sixth and Bobryshev taking ninth, for a sixth and tenth place finish overall. A considerable overall improvement from both riders.

The championship now takes a two week break before returning to Loket on the 22nd July.
