With the championship focus for Team HRC MXGP rejuvenated after the podium success in Argentina, Tim Gajser and Evgeny Bobryshev are hoping for a repeat performance this weekend as they head into the fourth leg of the MXGP in Leon; Mexico.
The track has proven to be fruitful for Gajser over the last 3 years. In 2016 he won here in a race described as his ‘hardest fought victory’ and he took his very first MX2 career win here in 2014. Now holding onto the red plate following his GP win in Argentina, the Slovenian is looking forward to returning here to focus on extending his championship lead.
Bobryshev who has now fully recovered from the virus that had plagued him since Indonesia, has been training in the US since the Argentinean GP to acclimatise himself to the Mexican heat. In 2016 the Russian took fourth overall after having to overcome various challenging obstacles during the weekend. With a third-place finish under his belt in Argentina, Bobryshev will be fixed on bettering this result in Mexico.
MXGP Free practise starts at 11:15 local time on Saturday 1st April.
