As the rain held off today in Loket, Tim Gajser showed an impressive return to form today on his CRF450RW as he took the holeshot and second overall in qualifying.
The hard work Gajser put in during the summer break paid off today as he glided round the clay based track in Loket, with the form that earnt him the world title last year. Getting the holeshot Gajser then led for most of the race until he faded in the last few laps.
Evgeny Bobryshev showed promise early in the day with second fastest in timed practice, come the race however, it all fell apart for the Russian. After starting in fifth he looked uncomfortable and started fighting the bike. Eventually, a fall then cost him to drop back to seventeenth place, where he finished. Bobby will be making some small changes to his setup In order to have a better result in tomorrow’s race.
The first MXGP race starts at 14:15 on Sunday 23rd July, local time.
