This weekend, Team HRC riders Evgeny Bobryshev and Gautier Paulin will head to Kegums in Latvia, the scene of last year’s Motocross of Nations, for round twelve of the MXGP Championship.
Although no two races are ever the same, Gautier Paulin will be reminded of his great results in the Motocross of Nations last year and will be looking to achieve success again at the Baltic track. The Frenchman has been working hard throughout the week in preparation for the event, which follows only days after the MXGP of Sweden.
With no event in Russia, Latvia is the closest ‘home’ event for Evgeny Bobryshev where an increase in fan support will be enthusiastically received by the popular Russian, who is looking forward to racing at the 1540m long hard sand track. Bobby is confident of a return to form after a small crash curtailed his speed in the first moto last weekend.
On track action for the MXGP class will begin at 1045hrs local time with Free Practice on Saturday, while Sunday’s two races are scheduled at 1415hrs and 1710hrs local time.
