This weekend will see Team HRC head to Uddevalla, one hour north of Gothenburg, for the MXGP of Sweden. After the mixed weather conditions in Germany, Sweden should prove to be warm and dry.
After an overall podium finish and a moto win at Teutschenthal last time out, Gautier Paulin will be keen to continue this podium form and stand on the rostrum again this weekend. This weekend will be the first time Paulin has ridden the Swedish track since the big change last year and the Frenchman is looking forward to the challenge.
An unfortunate first corner incident kept Evgeny Bobryshev from also standing on the podium, despite making a remarkable comeback in the second moto. After enjoying some time at home, the popular Russian rider will be aiming to convert this speed to a podium finish this weekend.
As in previous years, the Honda Sweden Academy will be running on Friday to help nurture the future stars of motocross and, as part of Honda’s commitment to these young riders, Bobryshev, Paulin and Jean-Michel Bayle will be in attendance to offer their guidance and expertise.
