After a short summer break, team HRC MXGP returns to action this weekend in Loket for the MXGP of Czech Republic.
Last year Gajser had an epic battle here with Nagal where the pair fought tooth and nail for the overall. It was only a small mistake that cost Gajser the win but even with a second place finish, it was enough to dramatically extend his championship lead which later earnt him his first MXGP world title. Since his improvement in Portugal for the last round of MXGP, the Slovenian has been working hard on getting fit again to fight for the last half of the season.
Bobryshev has been taking some time out to enjoy riding again and to get his strength back. He took part in round three of the Estonia MX championships last weekend where he took the overall. He has been working hard in order to come back strong for round 13.
Loket is in the west of the country and is described as an ‘old school’ clay track. It has hosted 19 grand prix there in its time and is a popular track with the riders.
Qualifying starts at 17h10 local time on Saturday 22nd July.
