Evgeny Bobryshev started the MXGP of The Netherlands strongly, sitting at the top of the timesheets after the first free practice on Saturday morning, but after being involved in another rider’s accident in race two, the focus turned to recovering from the back of the field.
Race one went well as Bobby climbed from sixth after qualifying to finish fifth, and he looked to continue that progression into race two with a good start that saw him settle into fifth.
Unfortunately, on the opening lap whilst running fifth Bobby was an unwitting participant in Gautier Paulin’s crash. The No.777 CRF450RW remained upright, but the delay came as Paulin’s tumbling bike snagged Bobby’s handlebar with its rear wheel and jammed against the brake lever. So entwined were the two bikes that it required a marshal to separate them, sending Bobby to the back of the pack.
Fighting back through the field though, Bobby salvaged tenth position overall in the Grand Prix classification, securing more all-important points.
