This weekend will see the Team HRC squad tackle the seventh round of the MXGP season, the Grand Prix of Great Britain, with continued determination to gain big points and close the gap on the championship leaders.
After a weekend of scoring strong points, but missing out on a podium, Team HRC riders Evgeny Bobryshev and Gautier Paulin will be looking to continue their strong run of form and taste the champagne once again.
After dominating the GP of Europe, Spain proved to be an unfortunate weekend for Gautier Paulin with an incident that wasn’t his fault. This weekend, the Frenchman will be looking to return to winning ways.
A podium finish has, so far, been tantalisingly close but proven elusive for Evgeny Bobryshev in 2015. The #777 rider will be looking to change that this weekend, at a track at which he stood on the podium on his last visit, as he continues to re-establish himself as a genuine podium contender each weekend.
The Johnny Douglas Hamilton-built track at Matterley Basin was first used by MXGP in 2006 with the Motocross of Nations visiting it just months later. It then disappeared from the MXGP calendar until its comeback in 2011. Over the past four years it has become a staple in the MXGP diet, with its great atmosphere and even better racing.
Sunday’s MXGP on track action will see race one at 14.15hrs and race two at 17.10hrs local time.
