Tim Gajser and Evgeny Bobryshev will line up on their CRF450RW’s for the penultimate round of the FIM Motocross World Championship this weekend in Assen for the MXGP of the Netherlands.
This will the third consecutive year the circuit has played host to MXGP and the TT circuit will once again be transformed by 25,000 cubic meters of sand. The track they use consists of the final corner, main straight, put lane and a portion of the paddock, of the historic road racing track.
Assen was a difficult round for Gajser last year but he had success here in 2015 when he won the MX2 race and took the red plate. Bobryshev has had a podium finish here too and is fond of the tricky sand track.
The first MXGP race starts at 17h10 local time on Saturday 9th September.
