This weekend after a small break in the calendar, Team HRC MXGP Tim Gajser and Evgeny Bobryshev, will return aboard their CRF450RWs to South America for the third round of MXGP in Patagonia, Argentina.
Gajser and Bobryshev come into Argentina hungry for improved results, after the Indonesian GP’s treacherous conditions left team HRC exhausted and wanting. The fast deterioration of the track forced Youthstream to cancel the MXGP second race, meaning they were unable to obtain the podium finish they had worked towards.
Feeling fresh and optimistic heading into the weekend, both riders are a big fan of the smooth Argentinian track. Gajser will be looking to mirror his success from last year where he took the overall after a tremendous last minute battle across the finish line. Bobryshev, who narrowly missed out on a podium in the first race last year and enjoys the favourable conditions of the track has his eye on the podium.
A popular track with the riders, the picturesque scenery surrounding the track makes it one of the more beautiful race destinations on the MXGP calendar. The track is located near Argentina-Chile border and attracts a large crowd every year.
MXGP starts with Free Practice on Saturday 18th March with racing starting on Sunday 19th March.
