Team HRC’s European adventure continues as the MXGP paddock heads to Bulgaria for round five of the FIM Motocross World Championship this weekend.
The northern town of Sevlievo welcomes the world’s very best off-road riders to a track many of them know well, especially Honda’s German ace Max Nagl who knows what it takes to win here.
The super-consistent Nagl will look to capitalise upon progress made in recent tests and continue his strong run of form this season, building on his fourth position overall in the championship.
Evgeny Bobryshev is remarkably returning to action just one week after his crash in Italy, but feels very at home at the Eastern European venue.
The hard pack surface and fast flowing nature of the Sevlievo track will highlight the recent improvements made to the Honda CRF450RW in testing, whilst the gains in start performance could prove pivotal at a track where start gate selection is more important than ever.
Although rain is forecast at the end of the week, Sunday’s expected sunshine and temperatures of 20degrees Celsius should create ideal conditions for racing.
