Racing in front of a supportive home crowd home crowd, HRC’s Evgeny Bobryshev made his comeback on his #mxgp championship assault today at the Russian #mxgp.

Before the #mxgp race began there had been torrential rain during the whole of the MX2 race. This left the track in a muddy, sodden state, a vast difference to the conditions of the qualifying race yesterday. For Bobby, who admits himself that he isn’t a fan of mud, this made his comeback a little more challenging then he had hoped for.

As the gate dropped for the first race, Bobby quickly got into third place with a good start. Then after struggling for vision in the first lap, pulled into the pit lane to sort his muddy goggles which meant he lost time and positions. After having to pull in a second time, Bobby struggled to flow in the slick conditions but battled on to come in 13th position.

The second race was a little more positive for Bobby, after initially getting a poor start, he made his way back from last position through to eighth, battling with Cairoli and Herlings. It was only a small mistake on the last lap which meant he came in 10th position.

Bobby will now get some more bike time in ready for Round 11 in Ottobiano on the 25th June.
