As the season now enters well into its second half, HRC MXGP head straight to Agueda Portugal, which makes a return to the series this year, for round 12 of the FIM world championship.
Coming straight from Ottobiano which was the hottest race of the year and where Tim Gajser made his return to the series, the team will be looking to remount the podium again after the last few rounds have been hindered by injuries.
With the duo having spent little time on the bike recently whilst they recover, Tim Gajser and Evgeny Bobryshev are both optimistic heading into Portugal, now that they are able to get back to work properly.
Although the track is not a ‘new’ track, it has been given an extensive facelift to prepare for the return of MXGP, with the last GP held here in 2013. The city of Agueda is famous for hanging hundreds of Umbrellas over the promenades in the streets every July as part of the Agutagueda art festival.
The MXGP qualifying race starts at 17:10 on Saturday 1st July.
