Evgeny Bobryshev scored his second qualifying race victory of the 2015 MXGP season today in dominant fashion, showing blistering pace to run away at the front in Germany.

Both he and Gautier Paulin made good starts at Teutschenthal and were in second and fifth at the first corner. Both riders on the CRF450RW machines then set about making progress, and Bobby swiftly made his move for the lead and never looked back.

In the crucial opening minutes of the race, Bobby was the fastest man on track by one second, allowing him to build a comfortable buffer. Even when Romain Febvre attacked in the closing laps, Bobby controlled the race to take the victory at the venue at which he took his first overall Grand Prix victory in 2011.

Just as Bobryshev was making progress, so too was Paulin, although his pace was hampered by a hole punched in his exhaust by another bike in the opening lap. Pushing for fourth, he slipped off at speed, but was able to remount in sixth and recovered to fifth again.

Once again the Team HRC duo have set the pace on Saturday, and the team is confident of carrying this performance into tomorrow’s two races, the first of which gets underway at 1415hrs local time.

“That was a very, very good ride from Bobby, and I’m really pleased with the way that he took his second qualifying race win this year. Gautier was both lucky and unlucky this afternoon. He had really quite a good ride, but he got cleaned up early on which damaged his exhaust quite badly and bent it so it was touching a water hose. He could quite easily have lost all the water, so it’s lucky that the bikes are designed tough enough that he could continue. Hopefully we’ll have both riders out the gate well again tomorrow, and with a bit of luck we can replicate what we’ve done today. We have to remember it’s Saturday and we’ve been here before, so we’re not taking anything for granted at all and we need to make the same sorts of starts tomorrow. It’s a gnarly and rutted track which is getting rougher, and they’ll do some work on it overnight, but the condition tomorrow will depend a lot on the weather too. There’ll be some tough conditions tomorrow, but we’re ready for them.”

1st

“I’m really happy with the race and the way it went because I knew from the beginning that if I could get a good start I could win here. I’ve been feeling quite well with the track. There’s just one point along the pit straight where it’s really rough and I have to concentrate on my lines so I couldn’t read the information on the pit board, but otherwise I got a good start and just concentrated on my race and I’m really happy with the second pole position of this season. I had a little problem with my leg after Maggiora because it was swollen, and it’s still quite blue at the moment but it doesn’t bother me in the race. In the beginning of the season it was really difficult to get back to the race condition but now I’m getting closer to my potential.”

“It was a difficult race because right from the start Max [Nagl] made a mistake in the second corner and we hit each other. I was lucky not to crash, but his bike hit the pipe on mine and put a hole in it and the bike lost a lot of power. But I managed still to have a good ride and I was coming back to fight for fourth place, but then I just had a crash where I lost the rear wheel on acceleration in a fast spot. It was a good crash and I now have a nice pizza on the leg, but then again I could come back again to fifth. We’re in good shape and feeling good here, and I enjoyed today on the bike so I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”
