Bobryshev in fighting form ahead of MXGP round three

160324_104

Evgeny Bobryshev currently lies third in the World Championship, but will attack the Grand Prix of Europe this weekend with even more vigour having recently taken a double win in the opening round of the Dutch championship in Axel.

It adds to Bobby’s impressive scorecard already this season – Italian International MX champion, leader of the Dutch championship, and third in the MXGP standings with third place in the Qatar opener and tied on points for the podium in round two but just missing out on count-back.

Held earlier in the season this year, the Valkenswaard encounter is the first European of the year, sandwiched between a pair of overseas flyaway races. Owing to a bank holiday weekend, the traditional schedule has been shifted one day later with racing happening on Monday 28 March.

The 1550m long sand track, located just north of the Belgian border, is known for being tough and physically demanding for the riders, and with an absolutely packed weekend schedule incorporating European and youth series, the track will only get tougher and more rutted throughout each day.

Notable by his absence will be Gautier Paulin on the #21 machine, as he is forced to sit out this Grand Prix after fracturing his vertebra and breaking a rib in a practice crash in Lommel two weekends ago. He is undergoing assessments and checks before starting a carefully calculated rehabilitation plan.

Making it harder for the Frenchman will be the knowledge that Valkenswaard was the venue of his dominant victory on the Honda CRF450RW last year.

On track action for the GP of Europe will start on Sunday with free practice at 1045hrs local time, culminating in Monday’s two races which kick off at 1415hrs and 1710hrs local time.
